Rated 1 out of 5 by Penguins16 Very disappointing
Randomly shuts off even after adjust automatic power down settings and sometimes battery won't even last a full round. Just got this as a gift a few months ago. Extremely disappointed would not recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by Woody Good Little devise.
My wife got me this for Christmas and have used it many times. Compared distances with other, more expensive units and they were the same every time. Battery life is a minor issue but I take a portable power pack in my bags and this solves the problem during the second round of 18. Also having trouble updating but working on that. Overall for the price - great value.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jim123456789 Do not buy one of these
I have had this item for about 5 months; I have tried to update course details & find it almost impossible; in fact unable to do it since I paid way too much. after contacting support, I found them next to useless. I would rather spend more money for something that actually works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jakel1950 Unit shut off on every other hole on the course
I used the unit for the first time today (Izzo Sport Swami Orange). It brought up the the course to choose right away and I set the unit to shut-off without use in one hour. After the first hole it shut-off in my pocket. So I had to turn the unit back on, wait for it to find the satellite and reset it to the proper golf course and the proper hole. After 2 more holes the unit went blank again. Had to reset. After 5 holes I set the unit to not shut-off at all. That still did not help. What is causing this and how do I avoid it. I don't think that I was hitting the buttons on the unit while it was in my pocket. Where else do you put it? Very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mack Powers off frequently during a round of golf
Set the product not to power down yet it does so frequently. Have taken care not to touch the side buttons that may cause the device to power down. Very frustrating to have to re-start, find GPS and golf course then advance to the hole being played.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Becky Can't really put in your pocket!
I have the older style Swami and decided to order this slimmer version so I could put it in my pocket at those many times I play cart path only or inside distances where carts may be prohibited. Carrying a few clubs, I thought the pocket idea was perfect. However, you can't get it out of your pocket without touching the side buttons and it jumps to other holes, or the menu. Very inconvenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 9858 good choice
Does everything it is advertised to do. If you are looking for ease of use, basic yardage to green, small size, no membership and low cost this is a good choice.
