For those of you using GHIN, they have made a major upgrade with GPS, shot tracking and a Greens heat map! Note I had to go into the app store to manually update (vs. my normal auto updates) my GHIN app and the cost for the GPS/Greens heat map is $39./yr. The only other 'disadvantage' is that you have to go into 'hole by hole' scoring to access both.

Thanks for the heads up.  I just downloaded the GHIN app upgrade and it looks interesting.  When I opened it, clicked "play with GPS" the GHIN app offered the first round as a free trial of the upgrade package.  I can't wait to give it a try at the course.

Curious to see if this is available for the course I'll be playing Friday. I've been experimenting with Game Golf again (with pretty good results so far) which frees me up to track shots with the device and use any GPS app I want. If it works well, I see no reason to download something else!

While is is a major improvement for the GHIN app, I think a big miss is getting to the Greens info. As I mentioned in my original post - you have to get into 'hole by hole' shot tracking menu first. I already use Shotscope so for us that use it or ARRCOS that portion doesn't make sense. My recommendation to them is to just put it on the front page of their menu.

Was able to download and preview a couple of courses I'm familiar with. I definitely like what I'm seeing and will probably try it out on the course tomorrow, but their mapping definitely is not accurate. I was looking at a course earlier that was definitely missing a few prominent trees, and by prominent I mean trees that will usually be in your direct line off the tee.

I currently use a Shot Scope GPS watch (G3) but have been looking at the GHIN app (standard version).  As someone with a limited data plan and somewhat rural location I'm a little worried about how much of my plan would be consumed in a 4.5 hour round.  Any estimates?

Thanks.

GPS uses minimal data. Should be able to download the course over Wi-Fi before you leave your house and then you’d be golden

Just saw the update. Wish I would have seen it before my round today. Anyone use it yet? Was about to get Shotscope but then saw this.

I’ve been using it for about a month now. Love, Love, Love it!!   I upgraded to the premium version and use the hole by hole with stats scoring.  So at the end of the Round my score is posted.  
 

I love reviewing the stats  ok not as comprehensive as Shot scope or arccos but much much easier to use and tells me enough  

The GPS is fantastic!  Probably will not renew my Sky Caddie   It’s every bit as good as it.  And even paying for the premium, much cheaper  

It’s a fantastic app.  I encourage everyone to try it out

Have you used the watch feature? Seems like the Grint but way more detailed, similar to Shotscope with the distances to hazards.

I don’t have an Apple (or any smart) watch for that matter.  Hmh, maybe I should buy one to check it out, you know purely for the forums sake 😬

Totally. I hope someone has used it. Could make my decision about Shotscope unless, the testing opportunity gods choose me 😬🤞

I use the GHIN app for distances regularly. And I’ve tested both free and Enhanced GPS. The free version gets the job done for me right now. I like that I can keep all my stats in the app along with my handicap. The issue I’ve had with other GPS/shot tracking apps is either minimal integration with GHIN or none. I’d rather have an official handicap than a handicap through a random app.

The GPS distances don’t ever include slope, which does get annoying, but it’s because it’s tournament-approved. Which, I actually messaged the developer and said there should be two modes, tournament and non-tournament, so that guys like me who will never play in a tournament can get “plays like” distances. Otherwise I’ll still be looking elsewhere for this.

The shot tracking is kind of clunky and requires you to hit a button before every shot to record. If you’re looking for shot tracking, part of the Enhanced GPS package, you should look elsewhere for now. It’s so annoying I only used it for drives off the tee and didn’t bother on any other shots.

But, overall, it works pretty well despite lacking a lot of features other apps have.

I'm only just seeing this, and was thinking about giving it a shot next round - assuming the pairing with my Apple Watch is seamless.  I also have a ShotScope, and am thinking about using both simultaneously to see if there's an advantage of one over the other.  I've definitely noticed that Shot Scope tends to miss multiple shots over the course of the round, and it's (while not impossible) a bit of a pain to go back and discover which shot it actually missed.

I'll let you all know if there's a benefit of one over the other.
