2018 Official Forum Member Review - Arccos 360 w/ Caddie 2.0


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I am shocked by the results of the Arccos review. I have had it in play either with Arccoss 360 for a month then the Cobra Connect for 5 months. The only issue I have had is the battery life. They are supposed to last 2 years but I have lost 3 sensors in the past 2 months. The only time I have dropped a shot was when the battery died. Routinely I check and adjust the putts as it may not pick up a tap in, which is my fault as the directions say to settle over the ball first then putt.

I’m happy to hear you’re having a positive experience. It could very well be that my sensors had the misfortune of being not all the way up to manufacturer standards.

It maybe worth doing a comparison of user experience against phone use. Anecdotally from the reviews the iPhone 8 and X is better than 6 and 7. Arccos are releasing an Apple watch that will do the sensing will that be any better?

I used the iPhone 7........I remember that once or twice, I put my phone in the back pocket, but it still picked up.

BTW, Arccoss & Cobra have been outstanding when it comes to sensor replacement.

I use an iPhone 7. I haven’t had the opportunity to use a different phone to compare.

As technology improves, I feel the experience with Arccos will improve. Just like the original Bluetooth headphones or speakers had issues until the technology improved.

I am curious what the on course experience would be like with a newer model phone.

Yeah me too, I'm going to have to upgrade soon and don't know whither to go for iPhone 8 or X. Fozcycle's posts saying his iPhone 7 works every time does throw me and have me doubt my upgrade choice.

FYI 

The main hardware that connects to the microphone on your phone is an Audio CODEC. The CODEC normally has its own microcontroller/DSP this does all the signal processing before passing it to the Application Processor (where the Arccos App runs). The iPhone 6 and 7 have the same CODEC, where as the 8 and X have a newer version but to my knowledge hardware wise there should not be any major performance difference. From a software point of view then the newer phones will have better Adaptive Noise Cancellation but these tend to be more focused on tuning for phone call use i.e holding the phone to the ear the phone will use the video microphone on the back of the phone to cancel background noise in the earpiece.

I have the iPhone 7 and it’s flawless for me, I had the older screw on sensors and recently changed to the Arcoss grips with built in sensors, my only discrepancies have been on the putting green and it’s usually during a tap in, but hardly ever.

I wanted to check in and let everyone know that our weather here in the Northeast has been dreadful on the weekends recently and I haven't gotten in any recent rounds.  I feel that I would be incomplete to post my Stage 2 review now - even though I am soo late with it.  I will try and get something soon - but I haven't seen any issues or problems like the others have.  Then again I haven't had as many rounds as the rest of you.

Did any of you have to get in contact with Arccos to have a course mapped? I was wondering how long it took for them to do it. I read on their website that it would be done in three business days, that actually seems absurdly quick to me.

One of the two courses near my house is not mapped and I contacted them about making it as it's the one I play most. My last email with them was on October 8 when I sent them a shot of the scorecard and they responded that it's been sent to the mapping team.

I almost feel like I'm being extremely impatient, but I'm willing to play the other course until it's done, especially since the weather is cooling off and it's less crowded. My experience with their customer service has been nothing less than extraordinary. Shout out to HardcoreLooper for sending me the CSR they used during the Cobra Connect challenge.

I had a course that was not mapped When I contacted them it was shortly Done. also with course correction was done quickly once they found out there was a issue.

OK after a lengthy review my abbreviated Stage 2 is up for viewing... this is definitely a To Be Continued review... 

I find a lot of promise with the Arccos 360 - I just don't have that much data to go with for my review.

From the inbox today, here's some really good Arccos sales for the Christmas season. I'll maintain that this tracking system is great for your game. The other day, I straight up left my phone in the pocket the whole round and it captured every regular shot accurately. The only thing I had to edit was some putts and flag locations. I'm not 100% sold on Caddie because some of the recommendations have steered me wrong but that's a fixable problem through software updates. They've gotten the hardware right for sure.

100% Agree.    I like just leaving my phone in the pocket and reviewing my results after the round.

Arccos 3.2 is out and I am excited to see what improvements have been made.

I however won't be able to test this out until the weather improves, so maybe March or April.  I'll try to be patient.

Did they have any notes on what they updated or changed? I know there was update with a bunch of new features which MGS had a article on. 

I'm in the same boat as you with no rounds locally till April at best. Hopefully the early cold weather leads to a early start of the season!

I've been out to play once since the update and it's a much improved experience. In addition to the cool new features, the app just seems to work better overall. I don't mean to take ALL the credit, but these were definitely suggestions MGS sent in 😉

Now we just need to get the medals added so there can be an MGS leaderboard for Arccos as well. 🏅

That's awesome. I have to say I really live using arccos and I constantly find new features on it 

A leaderboard would be amazing, also help that shotscope craving I've been having. 

I know one of the take aways that some ppl didn't like having to edit the round or look for mistakes, however I found it was a great way to go back through the round and recap missed or made opportunities. 

I never found that many mistakes anyway, but it quickly became part of my post round routine. 

Maybe @Nunfa0 and I can do a little comparison during our round or two later in January.

Only other thing I have to do is get my iPhone screen replaced that I may have broke this last season... That and find it as it's gone mia since the end of the season.

I just updated to the new version (12/19/20018) and also recalibrated my android smartphone gyroscope sensor. 

All worked out! All shots where recognized and stored. No issue with battery life. My battery went from 55% down to 39% within 18 holes or 3.5 hours. 

There seems to be a decent development for Android users, well at least for mine.

best,

Henning
