WHICH BUTTONS DO I PUSH TO CHECK BATTERY ON GOLFBUDDY VOICE?
Hi there if you are looking to check the battery level it has a small icon on top of the screen
to mute the device press the two volume buttons symultaniously
and to turn the volume up or down press the + or - buttons until desired volume is met
I have no display on my golfbuddy VS4 only the sound
first of all this sounds like a possible display panel or cable failure
has the device been dropped at any point in its life?
also does the display panel have any visible cracks on it?
somtimes the display ribbon may just have come loose and you can try to dissasemble the device and reconnect the display ribbon
My GolfBuddy LR7S not vibrates. Do you know why?
firstly How Long has the device been since it last vibrated?
has it been dropped or Flooded?
if possible you can try and open the device and see if the Vibration motor is connected up to the main board
Hope this helps!
My golfbuddy wt5 no longer locates golf courses. Only appears to continue searching. What do I do?
Try connecting to PC and run chkdsk on those files. If found corrupt, run chkdsk/f using command prompt and "fix" files enough to be recognized by GB3 manager. If you can sync to the manager program, you can reload or update the firmware and all the course information. Once the files are good, it should be able to lock satellites to a course loaded on the WT5.After all that and it still won't lock-in golf course. Had to save all files (except for Subsys folder) and reformat watch (fast format). Then I copied saved files back onto watch. I then connected to G3 manager and reloaded all course info. (checking all countries and selecting "overwrite". Now it will see courses and fixed my problem.
It reads 10 to 20 yards shorter than actual yardage.
re-calibrate the unit or get a more accurate unit
20 yards for a cheap gps unit is about average
remember that you actual yardage is measured by the revolutions and circumference of the tyres so the difference could be coming from that area rather than from the gps unit
