What has Happened to Skytrak?

Recommended Posts

I purchased a Skytrak almost a year ago and there have been NO updates since. I heard that they were working on calculating club data based on measured data points, but I haven't heard anything since. Does anyone know why Skytrak has fallen off the grid?

There's been lots of discussion about this on other forums (there's a good one dedicated entirely to golf simulators which has a moderately active SkyTrak page).

Version 3.4 has been in beta for a while; I know this because I've used it firsthand. It includes several useful features, including the linking of multiple accounts to a single computer for multiplayer and allowing users to set up custom clubsets. It's also supposed to fix a couple of ball reading issues, but they're mostly for high speed guys, which doesn't apply to me.

Version 4 is supposed to have updated graphics.

In the other forum, for a time a representation of SkyTrak was posting. His original claim was that 3.4 was delayed when (last year) the European Union changed their privacy laws (remember when every website was updating its terms of service?). On the whole, few people found the reasoning convincing.

There is some buzz that 3.4 might actually drop tonight; there are notifications on SkyTrak's website about it being down for maintenance this evening. At this point, it's all speculation.

Do you know if you need to update thru the app or thru the unit itself?

Since there's been no official update since I've owned my SkyTrak, I don't actually know how it works. I would guess that for iPad/Android, the app would update as normal. The next time it's connected, if there's a firmware update for the device, I'd expect it would download that and push it to the SkyTrak.

For Windows, I'd imagine the app would need to be downloaded directly.

But again, since there hasn't been an update in over a year, you'd have to talk to someone who's had it for a long time to know for sure.
