So far it has been quite easy although the screen is a bit small
Proseasy to set up
ConsNot very accurate especially for courses that have undergone upgrading, keeps on asking for manual changes etc plus the touch screen is not sensitive enough

Not a scratch golfer however really takes the guess work out of distance and judging hazards. Was also able to use my Golfbuddy in four provinces so far. Everytime I turned it on knew where I was and to proceed to the first hole. Very reliable, easy to navigate.Touch screen convenient. Fun for everyone golfing with me as well. Great buy!
Proseasy to use, input stats touch screen easy battery lasts at least 2 rounds scorecard nice
Consscreen back light could be brighter
Terrific Unit With Plenty of Features
June 25, 2012
The Golf Buddy World Platinum is a terrific gps unit. It is simple to use, but is filled with features. The unit recognised my course (in Australia) as soon as I turned it on - no downloads necessary. It automatically updates as you play each hole without the need to advance the next hole manually.
ProsEasy to use and good value for money.
ConsDoes not synch easily with Mac OS .

Good GPS to have on the course, touchscreen could have been better, not meant for big fingers.. I have to use a pin to hit correct buttons on the screen.
ProsEasy to start, finds correct course.
ConsTouchscreen could have been better

Great. Openned box charged it it turned it on and was away golfing. Local courses already loaded. Delivery from Rockbottom excellent.
ProsBasic functions easy to use and comes preloaded with lots of courses. No annual fees. Helpful web site for support - not that I have needed it!
ConsNeed to invest a bit of time getting familar with more advanced features such as scoring module.
April 21, 2012
Very user friendly, all the coursesyou will most likely need are on it.. It finds the courses that are close to you and tells you how far they are.
Proseasy to use
Conscould be brighter in the sun. But you can see it OK

This was one of the easiest units to use I have ever seen. Right out of the box at a local course and it knew exactly where I was and what hole I was on. I enjoy using this unit very much.
ProsEasy to Use

I really like the new gps. Has worked great right from the very beginning. The only thing I wish it had a brighter image--I turned the brightness up but it is still alittle hard to see in the sunlight.
ProsAlmost everything, It knows where you are playing and the course layout.
Cons needs to have a brighter screen....

A huge improvement compared to my old Sureshot. Being able to pin-point flag positions or how far do i need to hit this shot,to leave my favorite distance is brilliant. Looked at quite a few different GPS models out there and settled for this.I'm sure I made the right choice. No extra charges for uploads,40,000 course capability.Simply brilliant!!!

Opened the box and followed the quick start guide, charged, then updated the firmware and some courses, all without a hiccup. Took it to the course and it automatically recognized the course, gave very accurate information, changed holes on it's own and was an absolute treat to use. It provides all the useful information with respect to carry distances of hazards and bunkers etc. It not only helped me, it helped my playing partner as well. It's nice to take the guess work out of shot distances. Had it attached to the handle of my push cart and never had to wait for readings, just stop the cart, look and that's it. Battery life seems to be fine so far. Rockbottomgolf service, price and quick delivery only adds to the positive experience.
ProsAccuracy, simple to use, great data, easy to update firmware and courses, on-board rechargeable battery, no fees.

Great for distances from 120 yds in, more accurate than estimates and pacing off yardage. The score module really helps to pinpoint tendecies (pulls and push T shots) and putting trends.
ProsEverything, especially the distances to trouble and over trouble.
ConsWorks best with a golf T and not very good with your finger.

Right out of the box the GolfBuddy World Platinum GPS worked a treat. I am in Australia and was particularly impressed that all my local courses are available without me having to download them individually. The battery life is great and I get approx 3 rounds per charge. This product has improved my game by providing distance information that previously I had to estimate. Would definately recommend it to others.

Been struggling with my golf and first day out with the new GPS i shoot 3 under what more can I say. Eyes are having difficulty judging distance so the GPS gave me confidence to shoot at the pin.
ProsThe accuracy of distance was impressive and simple to use.
March 11, 2012
Very easy to use turn it on if you at the course it is already looking for satellite and the course is loading up. No fees already pre -loaded. The yardage is spot on for the money ,great little toy.
ProsPre-loaded courses and I played two rounds on one charge. Very easy to use
March 11, 2012
Great product, very easy to use. Gives you the confidence to take that extra club!!!!
Prosfast loading, easy to use, accurate, great price
ConsThe golf ball does not do what the unit say's, OH! that's my problem. Nothing to dislike

Have played 4 rounds at 4 different courses since receiving my GolfBuddy World Platinum. It hasn't skipped a beat once, knowing exactly where I am all the time. Third round had me shooting my best score for 9 years, by simply knowing exactly which club to use every time!!
ProsUses GPS to its full extent. Identifies the course and hole I am on, without me having to provide any input.
ConsHaven't found a flaw yet.

By Lorne Smelsky
not sure what this means?
February 6, 2012
ProsFor the most part it is very functional.
ConsMy dislike is that the lighting is hard to see. Has to be brighter or use different type of screen. The yardage to the flag only works if you know the exact location of the pin to get an accurate yardage other wise you are playing off the center of the green.
By Rohan Samara
This is a must have!
November 30, 2011
After playing with some golfing buddies who had one I knew it was a must have! Absolutely love it and don't know how I did without it. The BEST price at Rock Bottom Golf. My mate bought it here in Australia for $150 more than I did delivered!
ProsThe accuracy and being able to keep your score cards
July 15, 2011
Has helped me a lot in giving me the exact distance I require .Its just like having your own personal Caddy.
