FAQ's - GPS

 

Q. What is the difference between a GPS and a Rangefinder?

A. A golf GPS works much the same as your car GPS. You have golf courses rather than streets stored in your unit, your GPS tells you how far you are from the various features such as bunkers, lakes, trees, greens etc. at any given time without you having to do anything. It will tell you how far you are from a particular hazard/feature even if you can’t see it.
A rangefinder will calculate the distance to features/objects that you can see and you must sight them each and every time so they require much more concentration than a GPS unit and tend to slow play whereas a GPS tends to speed up play.
 

Q.Is there any difference between GPS units?

A. On some GPS units, each golf course is individually mapped using very sophisticated Satellite GPS equipment realizing an accuracy of mostly less than a metre. Most brands simply copy “Google Earth” maps and are considerably less accurate.
 

Q.Am I able to map my own course?

A. With some GPS units, yes you can map any course you wish. In fact, you can also edit any course you have downloaded adding for instance your own layup points.
