Precision Pro R1 Smart Rangefinder

Disappointing to hear the poor feedback on this unit.  I was really intrigued by the data it provided and how it could help me play better golf by refining my decision making when it came to environmental conditions.   Unit some of the bugs are worked out it is off the list so of equipment I am thinking about.  

A bit more time on the charger seems to have (finally) revived it again.

But the battery issue makes this really tough to recommend. Even if the additional features don't work, the device has to cover the basic task (getting the yardage) well. The unpredictable battery makes that dicey. All else being equal, I would definitely recommend the NX9 (which I loved) over the R1 right now.

I noticed the R1 is no longer on their website, have they scrapped it?

Whoa. I hadn't noticed that. When I contacted support about mine, they gave me a return shipping label, no questions asked.

Interesting.  You can still find it on the site;  listed on the bottom  of the webpage under products.   When you go to the page it shows that it is sold out but you can request info.

That’s very interesting if you go to the main product page from the menu of the website it does not list the R1 at all, but as you mentioned if you scroll all the way to the bottom in the fine print under products, the R1 is there.

I really wish they would retool it to use a regular rangefinder battery instead of the rechargeable version that doesn’t seem to work very well.

Thanks for the honest feedback guys, I almost ordered an R1 today and decided to see if anything was here on MGS.  I think I will wait and see if things get ironed out, especially the battery issues.  You guys rock!

I just had my first 9 holes with the R1 today...

Coming from Arccos the last 2 years, I was happy with how the R1 performed. Connection to my phone stayed up the whole time (Samsung Galaxy S21) and phone battery didn't drain at all. The app is fine, but I'm honestly not looking at my phone at all during the round which is why I am no longer on the Arccos platform. Which brings me to my one gripe...

The R1 and the app had a hard time switching holes automatically. Arccos definitely did not have this problem, it always changed holes automatically. 7 out of the 9 holes I had to open my phone and manually switch holes. This is very unfortunate and hope it works itself out.

I've had the R1 since Christmas now. I've tried it 5 or so times on the course. I've had the same issues with others about gps data flowing to the unit from Android. My location is set properly and app up to date. The only way data will go to the R1 is if I open the app while on that hole. If this was fixed, the R1 would be a fantastic rangefinder. Right now, I'm debating on just going back to the NX9.

Yeah. That is the only way I’ve gotten it to work.  Maybe my misunderstanding if it was made known that you have to have the app open snd running for it to work.   Matter of fact last round I judt used the app as the rangefinder dies after one use the day before and I didn’t charge it.  
 

I’ve since ordered a S62 and will just use that along with my Bushnell.   Probably sell the R1 for whatever I can get for it.

I have one, and admittedly haven't used the app/features much. But as a range finder in general...I LOVE IT! I will update the thread once I attempt to use the features within the app more. The one time I attempted, the battery really only lasted around 27 holes. Without the app connected, 36 easy with no worries on the battery.

I still have and use I guess the original one I tested for Precision Pro through MGS quite a few moons ago. It is still kicking and still holds its own with more expensive ones even today.

Took a look at the manual to try and get a better understanding of what the UI looks like and saw they have a 10% off your next purchase discount code "THANKS10" printed in the manual: https://www.precisionprogolf.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/R1-Pamphlet-Print-Ready-Spreads.pdf

I'm still reading through the rest of this thread so apologies if the code is duplicative with someone else's post!
