In cart GPS vs Optical Range Finders

Our club has begun to provide carts with state of the art GPS with 9 inch screen. I have found them to be very accurate based on double checks with my optical.

The obvious question becomes what is the future of optical hand held devices relative to continuing improvements in the in cart GPS systems?

All I need to say is: cart path only

Certainly cart GPS is no good for wet locations.  Three years ago I played one CPO round in Phoenix of all places; that was miserable.  However, no CPO anywhere in my area.

The course near Dallas where I play quite often did away with the GPS on the carts.  I am not sure if it was the cost, the device ran a lot of ads during the round, or the fact that more players were carrying their own devices.  I'd go with my own rather than depend on the course to provide.
