PostSubject: Voice Caddie GPS review?   Wed Mar 13, 2013 12:13 pm

Recently purchased Voice Caddie GPS (model VC200) after reading some good review of (GolfBuddy Voice GPS).

My rational for purchasing this brand and model was, this unit is much smaller then VC100 or GolfBuddy V GPs and more portability.

So far tried this unit in JB (TP A, B and C Course )

Pro
Battery life is decent, able to play 2 round with one charge
very comfortable during round

Con
Accuracy
JB TP A course, yardage was relatively accurate but some hole, GPS were giving out inaccurate yardage. For example yard marker were saying 100M but GPS saying 170M to middle of green.

JB TP B course, less accurate then A, and more error in yardage

JB TP C course, Least accurate and VC200 could not recognize back 9 par4


Pleas note VC200 were tried out least few times in all three course before


So far my experience with this GPS not worth the money... any other experience?

Try ImCaddie..under S$200 similar to Voice Caddie - pretty accurate and local company COMSOC http://www.comsoc.com provides excellent after-sales service and also fast to do mapping of unmapped courses and load updated versions of firmware for downloading at website.

Having seen the many gadgets for measuring or telling distances, it would ultimately boil down the whether it is useful to the user. I think it is useful for those whose your game is consistently accurate. It may tell you the distance is 163m (for example) but can you get it there, accurately). The majority of golfers is unable to do so.

Personally, I would not use it as my accuracy level is still inconsistent. However, It is good though for the lower handicappers.

Its great for playing in different course, where you don't have caddy and the distance is in meter/yards.

Hi all, anyone know where in Singapore to pick up one of these voice caddie GPS?
And what price is it going at? Any promo?

Between golf buddy and voice caddie which is better?
Thanks all.

Thanks bro. Will check it out.
Golf Buddy is nice but Voice Caddie is sleek.
Both do not have no excessive functions but just most relevant ones like distance to the pin and shot distance. 
Good day.
