Divot tool?

The GameTracker tags come with a ball mark/divot fork tool. Another smart tag is permanently embedded in the top of that tool and can be used for non-standard shots.

Ahhh...that all makes sense. Thanks for this bit of information. I had no idea why they included a divot tool.

 

For those with the smart tags, how do you tag your putter if you have a counter core superstroke grip?

Set the divot tool as your putter. I have found it slow to tag tho and as a divot tool it kinda stinks

Hey all,

 

make sure to check our SuperDave and JW Results Stage 2's! 

We are almost through the rotation and still need to hear from Matt so be on the lookout for the that!
 

Let's keep the discussion rolling though!

I sliced the "screw" portion off and superglued the tag to a spare ball marker that I wear on the bill of my hat (I keep my actual ball marker in my pocket).

The GT2 manual says to use the divot tool on shots like that. The club will show up as "---" but it will record the shot.

My watch face has already scratched. Same thing happened to my 1st Gen Linx.

How quickly does this thing charge for you? I left it plugged in over night and it didn't charge at all. I plugged it in this afternoon when I left and turned it a few different ways and it seemed to be charging. Came home 3 hours later and it went from 20% to 70%. Seems slow... Thoughts?

Had a similar situation with my Linx GT. I took a soft toothbrush and cleaned the 4 gold plated contacts and have not had a problem since.

The watch worked well today. I was in live mode with the app running and it really makes post round editing a breeze. Right now autoswing/autoscore is just not accurate so it's much easier to edit post hole rather than post round. I'll say again that deleting clubs on chips and such post round is not very convenient or reliable. It takes a few times for it to save and it doesn't like when you edit two clubs on a hole it seems. I am afraid to sync my watch online though since it totally screwed up my round last time but I know the watch needs to be updated. Guess we will find out soon...

 

Still like the watch as a gps device. Doubtful I would pay a subscription for the tagging and shot tracking stuff and if I am reading the web correctly you have to subscribe at the lowest level just to get anything other than middle of green distances. With other options that don't require subscription and the fact that shot tracking isn't really a goal for me, I am not sure if I would stick with this after the subscription expires or not.

 

More to come...

That's disappointing that they still require a subscription after you purchase the package. How much does it cost new? $250 or more? That really doesn't sit well with me that the company wants to turn you up by the ankles and empty your pockets just so you can use all the features that barely work anyway.

It's $350. My stage 2 will be up today and I'll be addressing that.

Mine won't sync through the app. Says it can't find it, even though my phone shows it as available to sync up.

 

Autoswing has been fairly good for me, although yesterday, it only recorded hopes 8-18. Forgot about the first 7 I guess.

 

I like the GPS features, but I do struggle with editing afterwards on my computer. I can't seem to edit the score/putts on the same screen as the hole view where you can edit your shots. I feel like it should all be in one screen.

 

And while I like looking at the stats and such, I'm losing a bit of interest at the moment... Especially thinking about the yearly subscription... Even more so because of the release Shot Scope seems to have laying in the weeds.

 

Keep on trucking.

Great review. Love the honest remarks. It's too bad this system is doing so poorly with our testers. Maybe Skycaddie will take the feedback into their next release.

Just uploaded my round from today. I was going through editing it, as it seemed to have picked up 11 extra shots, and then all of a sudden the scorecard was blank. We'll see if they can retrieve it. I'm a bit disappointed in 11 extra shots. Normally it's maybe one or two.

One thing I notice, had a bad driving round today and sprayed the ball in to the other fairway, The watch doesnt pick up outside of the hole's fairways or too far past the green.

For GPS numbers? Or just tracking shots?

For the shot tracking, I hit a bad slice on a par 5 in to the next fairway, hybrid came out back in to my fairway, it said I hit my driver 480 yds, because it didnt realize I was off the fairway and took another shot, even though I tagged the shot.

      (4) TESTERS WANTED
       

       
      Shot Scope V2 GPS Watch with
      Automated Performance Tracking
       
       
      ​
      There are two clear leaders in the golf data tracking game. For those who don't mind carrying your phone with you during a round, ARCCOS is the clear market leader. For those who'd rather just play golf, the Scottish company Shot Scope is tracker of choice.
       
      And if you're a part of the second part, this review opportunity is for you!
       

       
      TESTERS WANTED:
       
      We're looking for four avid golfers to test, review and keep Shot Scope's new V2 GPS Watch with Automated Performance Tracking. Shot Scope's patented ClubSense technology automatically knows when you hit the ball and which club you used, and stores all that info for you. You don't have to tag or mess with your phone. You just play golf. 
       
      And with Shot Scope's new online Performance Package,  you can view your stats and decide which part of your game you'll brag on and which you'll keep to yourself.
       
      The good news is if you live and play golf anywhere on the planet Earth, you're eligible to apply!
       

       
      How To Apply:
       
      You forum vets know - and you new members need to know - how much work is involved in being a MyGolfSpy product tester. We'll expect you to dedicate a full two months to using Shot Scope on the course and learning how to use the data is provides, and you'll write a detailed, thorough and - most importantly - honest review for your fellow Forum members. 
       
      To do that, you'll first have to be a member in good standing of the MyGolfSpy Community Forum (click here if you need to sign up). Next, in this thread - and ONLY IN THIS THREAD - you'll need to tell us the following:
       
      First name
      Home State/Province/Country
      ​Do you use performance tracking?
      Do you use a GPS watch?
      Which ones?
       
      ​That's pretty much it. We'll be announcing the four testers next week in this thread, so make sure to check back. 
       
      Good luck!

      Looking for info/ reviews on the Bushness iON GPS watch.  Don't normally wear a watch, and usually use my pacecount (accurate after 30 years in the  Army) but am bidding on one for $100 dollars (used) and want to know if it is worth the $$.
       
      Thank you

      4 Testers Wanted!


       
      Precision Pro GPS Golf Band
       
       
      Riddle me this, Golfman:
       
      Who goes on your wrist, gives you yardage, tells time, but isn't a watch?
       
      It's the GPS Golf Band by Precision Pro.
       

      Testers Wanted 
      Precision Pro is carving out a nice little niche for itself with laser rangefinders and golf GPS devices heavy on the features but light on the price. The company says its GPS Golf Band is sleeker and lighter (only 1 oz), with a much smaller profile than your typical wrist-mounted GPS device.
       
      Just don't call it a watch.
       

       
      We're looking for four of you to try this baby out to see if if performs as advertised. Is it easy to use? Does it pack a ton of performance into a modestly priced package? Is it, as its name would suggest, professionally precise?
       
      How To Apply:As you know, we take our product testing pretty seriously here at MyGolfSpy, so please read these instructions carefully.
       
      In this thread, tell us:
       
      Your name and home state/province
       
      Your handicap
       
      Do you use anything now to tell distance?
       

       
      Pretty easy!  Keep an eye on this thread, as we'll announce our testers next week.

      ​(4) Testers Wanted!!

      ​TomTom Golfer 2 GPS Watch
       
       
      So, just how much does a golf GPS watch really need to do?
       
      Front, middle and back distance to the green is a given. But what about distance to a hazard? Or distance to clear a hazard?
       
      Scorekeeping? Calorie counting?
       
      What about shot tracking and stat keeping?
       

       
      Testers Wanted:
       
      TomTom, a longtime GPS giant, says its new Golfer 2 GPS Watch can do all of these, and that you won't need a degree in quantum physics to figure out how to use it.
       
      MyGolfSpy's mission is to separate performance fact from marketing hype, and we want four of you to help us test out the new TomTom Golfer 2 GPS watch. Does it serve the most basic of GPS functions, and how well do all of these newfangled features really work?
       

       
       
      How To Apply:
       
      TomTom is providing MyGolfSpy with four Golfer 2 watches for our readers to test and review (and keep). We take our product testing pretty seriously at MyGolfSpy, so please read the instructions very carefully:
       
      - If you haven't already, you must join the MyGolfSpy Community Forum (click here to register).
       
      - In this thread, please tell us your first name, state or province, and current handicap
       
      Pretty easy, huh?
       
      We'll be announcing the testers in this space next week.  Good luck!
