I was divided between this, and the ultra reliable Bushnell X2. Trusted reliability plus a battery that will last a year or more were powerful arguments for the X2, but the built in GPS feature with downloaded courses on the Garmin were too tempting to pass on. I’m glad I bought the Garmin. I played at a really challenging course with crazy elevation changes, and felt like I was cheating with this thing. Blind areas aren’t a concern when you get a graphic on your viewfinder showing where every hazard is. The pinseeker mode was a lifesaver. With elevation drops of over 100 ft, the “plays like” mode really helped me choose the right club. Also, the oled screen is very sharp, and as just a rangefinder, it’s ridiculously accurate.
For the record, I originally bought the older z80 version and had to factory reset it 3 times in the first week just to get it to work, so I returned it. That made me nervous to buy this, but I’m a bells and whistles guy, so I took the risk and I’m glad. It has a video game like feel to the controls, and it takes a little playing around with to get it down.
The downside is that after playing 18 holes, using frequently, I’m at 68% battery, so I’ll probably ending up charging this after 2 rounds of play to be safe. It charges via USB, so if you have a cart with a USB slot, you can prevent it from draining.
One final downside, I wish this thing had a magnet for the frame of the golf cart, or ability to clip onto my pants. The carrying case has a clip, but I don’t like having to put it in and out of its case every hole.
