The SkyCaddie SG5 Pro

Attention: NEW GADGET ALERT!!!! The new SkyCaddie SG5 Pro is now available from SkyGolf. It features a new a large color display and a long-lasting rechargeable battery (hopefully the battery better than previous versions). Along with the patented Intelligreen Technology the following are features of the new SG5 Pro.
  • Brilliant, outdoor-readable color display with automatic backlight
  • Patented IntelliGreen technology
  • Rugged, water-resistant case
  • Drop-in lithium-rechargeable battery
  • LED battery charging indicator
  • Easy to use, one-handed operation
  • User-selectable color themes

I currently have the SG4 and other than the battery only lasting for approximately 2 full rounds, and the occasional difficulty hooking up to the satellite on the course, I absolutely love it. I never knew how off I was on my distances until I got a SkyCaddie and started hunting down pins. Other than the color screen, I don’t see any huge benefit of the new SG5 over the previous models. MSRP on the SG5 is $429 on the SkyCaddie website, but you can still get the SG4 in the low $300’s. InTheHole Golf has a complete selection of SkyCaddie products and accessories. If you have a SkyCaddie, leave a comment. I’d like to know what you think of them. [phpbay]skycaddie sg5, , , " "[/phpbay]

    Given my experiences with SkyGolf, I can never recommend SkyGolf/SkyCaddie to anyone. SkyGolf’s customer “service” is among the worst I have ever encountered. Its agents are unskilled in handling non-technical issues (the only type about which I have contacted SkyGolf). One agent in particular was rude and unprofessional throughout both of the calls I made to SkyGolf. The supervisor to whom that agent connected me was dismissively uncaring regarding the manner in which the agent had handled my contact with him.

    I have had to wait as much as 45 minutes before “the next available agent” even initially answers my call and an additional, excessively lengthy time even after that initial answer. For example, when I asked to speak with a supervisor during my June 1, 2010 call to SkyGolf, the agent took ten minutes to connect me to her.

    The SG5 I purchased in late 2008 required repairs ($75) in May 2010 – less than two years after I purchased it! The issue was with the unit not holding a charge, even after I replaced the battery with one from SkyGolf. The repair did not result from anything I had done to the unit. It was from a technical flaw from SkyGolf.

    Based on my experience, then, I absolutely do not endorse SkyGolf as a company with whom to do business, given the abysmal customer “service” and lack of professionalism in that regard. In addition, I recommend that you not even consider purchasing their products, given their flaws and need for repair.

    SG5 owner, problem free unit. Renewed my use for 1 year on 4/17/2010. Playing the other day, i notice my subscription expired in 23 days (July 2010). I called SkyCaddie and asked why I only got 3-months of usage for my $69+ payment. I apparently paid for last year according to their “agreement”. Sure, my fault for not reading the “agreement”. Skycaddie didn’t understand my situation and said “it is your fault sir, you should have read the agreement”. By the way, I didn’t use it in 2009 because I was going through medical issues. Thus I didn’t renew it when they thought I should. Completely nuts is my opinion and the thought process at Skycaddie is one that lacks common sense. So, my advise is be careful when you renew your subscription for the year. Next time I will cancel my subscription and sign-up for a new one. If I had done that before, I apparently would still be using my unit for the year. The folks at SkyCaddie were friendly ( I talked with a fellow and a lady). However, they have been given a script by management in my opinion to SCREW THEIR CUSTOMERS who unfortunately think SkyCaddie is a sensible organization.
