What's great about it: Convenient, easy to read, easy to use, accurate on all courses I've used it on.
I've used a couple of other good golf GPS's over the years. But, I like the S1 for its ultimate convenience. I strap it on and don't worry about losing it on the course. Don't have to keep pulling it from my belt or pocket. Just a turn of the wrist to get the distance to the green and then I can focus on my game. So far, I've been able to get 36+ holes on a single full charge. An enhancement I would like to see... since it is a GPS, I would like a current Lat/Long coordinates display.
This product has... Simple controls, Easy to read
I would recommend this to a friend!

My brother-in-law had this same gizmo when I visited New Englan in July. I wa impressed with it and knew that I had to have one. I waited 3 months before it went on sale at 60% of the usual price so I bought it.

What's great about it: SO EASY TO USE.
What's not so great: WISH THE CHARGE WAS LONGER THAN 8 HRS
YOU ARE GOING TO LAUGH BUT THIS ITEM IS BETTER THAN BUYING A NEW SET OF GOLF CLUBS. BEST GPS FOR GOLF EVER. I HAVE HAD TWO OTHERS. THEY ARE SITTING ON THE SHELF. IF YOU DO NOT BUY ONE YOU ARE NUTS. SO SO SO GREAT AND EASY.
I would recommend this to a friend!
