for the money it couldnt be more helpfull if you hit the ball straight from time to time you can measure out each club see how far you hit it off the tee and hit the middle of the green more and more i got mine on sale 149 if you can get that price it a steal

Rated 5 out of 5 by Breaking80 Pretty good!
Bought this for my Dad, who didn't want a super complicated GPS unit, annual fees and so I got the Voice+. He likes it. We compared it to my iphone golf GPS app, other GPS units, sprinkler head yardage, as well as a laser sight, and to my surprise, it was within a yard or two difference. This was true for over 80% maybe even 90% of the holes. My dad has used it for over 100 holes now, statically it's ~90% reliable for accurate yardage. (My iphone GPS apps are about 70-80% reliable.)
Weakness: cheap LCD screen and backlight (could look better)
Some course with two 18 hole courses, where #1 tee is next to each other, there's no method of selecting which course, such as Pasadena Rose Bowl Brookside GC.
Cool factor: my Dad and his Chinese speaking golf buddies think it's super cool, it can speak not only in English but in Mandarin (and 6 other languages). Other watch style GPS don't talk. My Dad puts his Voice+ GPS on his hat or belt, he doesn't wear it like a watch. (We don't golf with watches on- do you?)
Dicks Sporting Goods is great on returns, if we didn't like, I would have gotten another GPS unit- My Dad is keeping it! His golf buddies are jealous, and some regret getting the bigger full feature, annual free GPS golf units.
Improvement Suggestions for Golfbuddy:
-Better Screen and backlight (current one reminds me of an old $5 Casio)
-Wireless charging and better battery (enough for 2.5 rounds)
-Course Hazard warning- tell me by voice how far the water hazard/fairway bunker is. (I know this feature is on full GPS units, but seriously, if you can load 30,000+ course yardage info (inc alternate and dynamic greens) on one unit, what I'm suggesting shouldn't be difficult)
-Smaller/thinner unit- of course!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveL accurate, easy to use, not too expensive
I like this one because it shows front-back-middle on the default display, as opposed to middle distance only on the previous one I used. No problem for me with being on my wrist instead of being clipped on a hat, belt or shirt.

i have played 6 or 7 courses it is simply awsome with in a couple of yards has every course.the only prob is if two tees are next to each other it will always show you the front insead of the back so for one hole on the back you might have nothing but for the money its great if you buy it you will enjoy it

Charged it up and headed to the course...worked perfectly. I've played on several Michigan courses, some I thought rather remote, no problemo. Gives you the confidence to know your choosing the right club, even if you don't "stick it" on the green in regulation.
