The Callaway uPro Golf GPS.

uproThere’s a new player in the Golf GPS game, the Callaway uPro Golf GPS System. To this day, I will still tell people that the best piece of golf equipment I’ve ever purchased was my Skycaddie SG4.  I swear it saves me at least 2-3 strokes per round, and even more if it’s a course I’m not very familiar with.  But this new CallawayuPro GPS has me thinking that I’m not quite on the cutting edge anymore. The Callaway uPro has a ton of cool features that my GPS doesn’t have.  It will hold up to 50 courses, that’s  40 more than the other guys.  It’s thinner and lighter and looks like it will fit easily in your pocket.  It feels goofy toting around a Skycaddie on your belt, but in your pocket, that’s the way to go. NO ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP COST & NO FEES! That alone is worth the price of admission. It has a 2.2″ color LCD screen that’s meant to be used in direct sunlight, so you can always see the screen.  And the resolution is twice as good as the SG4 & SG5.  A few of the technical specs include;

Battery: Rechargeable Lithium Ion
Battery Life: 10-12 hours
Course Capacity: 50 Courses
Screen: 2.2″ 320 x 240 hi-res color screen
Weight 3.1 ounces

For more info on what the Callaway uPro can do, check out Callaway uPro. If you’re in the market to buy one, Austads has them in stock and ready to ship (unlike Amazon).   See prices on the Callaway uPro here. My wife will kill me if I come home with one of these things…but I just can’t pass up getting a new gadget.  And a golf gadget makes my mouth water.  😉 [phpbay]upro,6 ,1513 , ,,,100,[/phpbay]

    Does anyone have the updated files or the restore download for Mac OSX 10.5.8? I just bought the upro and it is Sunday. Anxious to play with it.

    Chris,
    I don’t get a red uPro icon in the finder. The SD card in my uPro shows up in the finder with the white generic removable disc icon that I would get with any flash drive or memory card. They may have updated the card format since I got my uPro so don’t take my experience as what you should get. If you click once on the icon you are looking at and choose “get info” or type command – I it will tell you the type of item yo are looking at (file/folder/application/disk).

  3. I too had some issues connecting my uPro to my Mac. Now that I finally got it working I love it! Every course I’ve played so far (about 20) the yardages have been very accurate.

    Folks, getting close to buying a GPS unit. Down to the Sonocaddie V300 or the uPro. I like the uPro flyover and Mc compatibility. One question: Once I hit the 50 course limit on the unit and want to purchase another course, do I lose one of my courses? Or can I keep them on my computer and load the ones I want when I want them?

  6. Scott J says:

    You can definitely have more than 50 courses and load only the ones you wan to carry. I expect that you could even have two separate memory cards with different courses on each. I have both the basic and pro mode for many courses and will switch back and forth as needed. Its very easy to add and subtract courses from the unit using the provided software.

  7. Most people do not realize how much their golf game can improve with the technology of a GPS system or rangefinder that can allow you to know the exact yardage to the pin. This will not only allow you to not have to guess, but it can be a big confidence boost after you hit the same yardage over and over and figure out the right swing and club for the shot. You can literally cut your handicap in half with the help of a GPS or rangefinder.

    Golf GPS systems can be expensive ranging from $299 – $500. Today there is a service at GolfGPSRental.com the “NetFlix for golf GPS.” You can rent GolfLogix, OnPar & SkyCaddie models. Select the model you want to try, sign up for a rental period ranging from 3 to 30 days, receive the unit via UPS, and go play. When you’re ready to return, re-box the golf GPS and use the included pre-printed label, and send it back. Simple. A Try before you buy type program.

    The product is just OK at very best, the support is the WORST! My home courses are listed BUT…. they redid them 3 years ago and Upro now has both courses mapped wrong, still the old layout. So I have now sent them 3 emails over 3 months and guess what? correctamundo…NOTHING. A stupid email that says thanks for contacting us a person in customer service will review it. Not to mention if you are playing a tight golf course forget it! this thing is crappola as it switches to the next hole and you can go back or you turn it to manual so you spend your day playing with it instead of golfing. Anyway for around 300 bucks, no way. Plus due to the terrible customer service I will never buy another callaway product again. And…..other brands have the courses in them! DUH! this is just a pain in the butt. I go on vacation and decide to play a course uh oh! didnt think way ahead to spend a half hour downloading it so no gps. Callaway need to go away with this thing.

    Received my upro 2 days ago.
    Prob. #1 -Initial problem was charging. The wall charger green light turned on, but charge light would not turn on – on the upro. Attempted removing and replacing battery several times, but ended up having to charge through the computer USB port.

    Prob. #2 – Had difficulty getting “connected” to the computer. I used 2 different computers (xp and vista), but either would not connect, or would disconnect. Never could sync.

    Support action for #1 – Sending a new battery

    Support action for #2 – after several hours of my efforts, called support – it worked while I had them on the phone, but after we hung up, the system would hand on trying to “synchronize”.

    Actual Fix – I have a Panasonic video camera that also uses the mini usb type cable. I decided it was worth a try. When I connected the cable, both the charging, connecting and synchronizing problems were cured.

    Good luck.

    Purchased a UPRO at Golftown,no problem downloading and connecting but info on my home course was out by 25/30 yards plus and/or minus.
    absolutely no satisfaction from their tech people and no responses to my lasy e-mail to both Canada and their U.S. offices. Other club members had the same problem with the UPRO GO. I returned the unit to Golf Town and bought a GOLF BUDDY,works like a charm right out of the box,thousands of courses available worldwide and no annual fees or new course download fees. They should stick to golf clubs or or else improve the support for the Upro

  13. Phil_99 says:

    Customer service is atrocious, anti-virus software has screwed the syncing files on the GPS. I would be grateful is someone could forward a copy so I can resolve the issue.

  14. David says:

    Save yourself the frustration……read the previous posts,Callaway has had problems with this unit since it was fist put on the market.
    If my experience is anything to go by you will probably get the same runaround.

    Return your UPRO for credit,there are other more reliable units for sale
