Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for GolfBuddy Voice GPS Rangefinder. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.50 stars, and the price range is $145.00-$199.99.

GolfBuddy Voice GPS Rangefinder is the first gold GPS that not only displays information but also speaks to the golfer. The Buddy has a mono LCD Display and runs on Lithium Polymer Battery, with a life of approx. 9 hours. This compact device has a capacity of 40,000 courses and comes with 33,000 pre-loaded courses from around the world. With just a push of a button, the device clearly displays and a clear voice tells the distance of front, center and back of the green. The voice is loud enough for the golfer to hear but not too loud to distract other players. It also features automatic course, hole recognition and shot distance measurement. This multi-featured device is handy and small to be carried easily and clipped anywhere while on the course. The device is multi-lingual and is compatible with 5 pin micro USB PC interface. It does not require any installation, download or annual fees.

However, though this is a handy device, many users feel that it is very difficult to see the display or use the buttons due to its tiny size. Some users also experienced consistent inaccuracy in yardages by 15 yards or more. The device loses its recharging ability after few months of use and battery is not replaceable.

Overall, the GolfBuddy Voice GPS Rangefinder is a user-friendly voice GPS rangefinder device. It is the most portable, convenient and easy to use GolfBuddy within an affordable price range.
