Skycaddie SX500 Screen Delamination Issues

Recommended Posts

Just to put in context I've been a Skycaddie user for over 12 years so been pretty happy with them. I've used

  • 2.5
  • SGx
  • Breeze
  • Touch
  • SX500

I've had the SX500 just over 2 years and noticed that the screen was delaminating.


Anyone else seen this, I remember both Samsung and Apple had similar issues with LED backlit screens about 5 years ago?

Like you, I have had SkyCaddie for pretty much as long, and have had the SX500 since it came out.  I have not had that issue with the screen.  

The only issue I had was a short on the touchscreen that gave "phantom" touches on the screen that would cause the screen to change as if I tapped on it (usually lower right corner).  I think I may have caused the issue as I used a cart holder that squeezed the sides tightly, and I assumed damaged the side.  So I upgraded to the SX550 a few months ago.  And I am very glad I did; the startup on the SX550 is much, much faster, and having the charging port on top is much easier to use.
