Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a highly compact Golf GPS device that goes the extra mile and actually talks to you.

Pros:

  • The GolfBuddy Voice GPS Rangefinder prides itself as being one of the most compact and lightweight golf GPS devices in the market. Measuring a mere 1.7 x 1.7 inches with an ultra lightweight of just 1 oz, you can fit it comfortably in your pocket without any discomfort or even clip it onto your hat.
  • The sleek form factor of the unit is also matched by an equally sleek interface. There are 5 buttons for accessing the various functions and a nice clear mono LCD screen which displays course information.
  • At the touch of a button, this unit tells you the distance to your target in two ways. It speaks to you in a nice female voice and displays the distance on screen in real time. It features 8 different languages and a volume control plus can readout the distance in either yards or meters. We absolutely love the voice feature as it gives you the convenience of not having to keep glancing at the screen during your round, which can be particularly problematic in sunlight.
  • The GolfBuddy voice tells you the accurate distance to the front, center and back of the green to help you improve your game. Other features include shot distance measurement which is great to have when your familiarizing yourself with a new club.
  • Over 35,000 courses are pre-loaded on the GolfBuddy and there are no subscription or download fees to fork out on. There are also free updates available to keep you updated with new courses. To receive the updates, you simply connect the unit to your computer using the included micro-USB cable.

  • The lithium-poly battery provides 9 hours worth of usage which is enough for approximately two rounds.

Cons:

  • Distance information is limited so the device doesn’t tell you the distance to hazards such as water or bunkers.
  • Replacing the battery requires the unit to be sent to the manufacture so it isn’t user-replaceable.

Guarantee: 90-day warranty.

Summary

If you need a basic Golf GPS unit which you can clip literally anywhere then the GolfBuddy Voice GPS Rangefinder is for you. This tiny device packs in some great features and is both accurate and user-friendly.

We’d recommend this to any golf lover who wants an easy and cost effective way to enhance their game.
