SkyCaddie SGX Review - Page 2
I'll get this part out of the way, there is an annual fee. The SkyCaddie offers three (four if you count the register only option) plans for you to chose from: Birdie, Eagle, and Double Eagle. There is an annual subscription with each of these and they range from $29.95 (Birdie) to $59.95 (Double Eagle). Depending where you're using your SkyCaddie SGX, you can decide on which plan is best for you.
The SkyCaddie SGX comes with 30,000 golf courses preloaded but it's best if you download a course to your device before you play. Downloading, or syncing, your device with a course before you play will give you more accuracy and let you know what features are available such as: IntelliGreen, Fairway Targets, HoleVue and more. The device also lets you track your score as well as stats after each hole is complete. The best part is, they keep it simple.
The only negative thing I have heard from others about the SkyCaddie SGX is paying the annual fee. While no one wants to pay more money, when you break down the cost of your annual fee it comes out to as little as $1 per round of golf and in most cases, even less. I am happy to pay $1 per round to have accurate yardages and a device that works.
After using the SkyCaddie SGX, I'm happy to recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a GPS device. The ease of use, accuracy and additional features make it worth the cost and something you're playing partners will thank you for... if you decide to share it with them.
