GolfBuddy World Platinum II Golf GPS
Not state of the art
The add boasts state of the art screen technology, but it more like 1990 technology. You cannot move the displayed are with a swipe motion. Forget about two finger gestures (pinch or expand). The worst is that at you move down the fairway the screen displays what is behind you instead of what is in front of you. Not worth the money.

Maybe The Best Out There
A great little GPS. Works flawlessly, very accurate and the improvements are noticeable. All you do is turn it on, it selects your course and hole. Does everything anyone could expect or want it to do: gives accurate yardages, keeps score and measures shot distance. Touchscreen is responsive and easy to see. With no membership fees, a course library (pre-installed) of over 40,000 courses world wide and a rechargeable battery that last three solid rounds, you couldn't ask for more and I couldn't be more pleased with this GPS. Is it perfect, I'm sure some may say no...but for me, a clear yes.

Screen saver ruins useage
You can't turn off the screen saver, and the screen saver maximum time delay is only 15 seconds. So EVERY time you want to look at the device to get your distances, you must pick it up and touch something/anything to turn off the screen saver. But beware, it's a touch screen, so touching the screen to turn off the screen saver may activate another unwanted function. Furthermore, touching the screen instigates two measurements, one from your current location to where you touched, and another from there to the center of the green. Those measurements on the screen make it difficult to see anything else, and it's almost impossible to turn them off once you accidentally touched the screen. I took mine back, and I love my new Garmin G6 !!
