Here is a complete list of Golf GPS Reviews sorted by brand. For rankings and side by side comparisons, see our Golf GPS Reviews and Scores.
- Bushnell NEO-X Golf Watch – New
A thin, lightweight watch is definitely what’s missing in the golf watch market. Amazingly, Bushnell is pulling it off and still maintaining very long battery life. If it lives up to expectations, we think Bushnell may have raised the bar in this category.
- Bushnell neo+ – Ratings Score: 4.30
One of the best values in golf GPS. If you don’t need hole layout views, this small device is preloaded and has no annual fees. User reviews are strong.
- Bushnell Hybrid – Ratings Score: 4.21
Combine the Bushnell neo+ with the Bushnell V2 laser rangefinder and you’ve got the best rangefinder in the game. Read the full review, because it’s not for everyone, especially if you’re looking for a straight GPS.
- Bushnell neo+ GPS Golf Watch – Ratings Score: 3.96
The features are similar to the Garmin S1, but it’s not getting the same great reviews. The price and the battery life definitely make it worth considering.
- Bushnell Yardage Pro XGC+ – Ratings Score: 3.65
The ratings are not great for this device, so we just can’t recommend it.
- Callaway uPro MX+ – Ratings Score: 3.28
Callaway has yet again failed to have a hit in the golf GPS market. The reviews suggest looking elsewhere. The Garmin G5 & G6 would be good places to start.
- I’m Caddie – Ratings Score: 4.5
There is no screen on this little unit, so you’ll need to be able to hear it speak. We look forward to seeing how users feel about this simple device.
- Expresso AG50s – Ratings Score: 4.00
If you’re looking for a device to serve as your car navigation and your golf course GPS, this is the one!
- Garmin Approach S2 – New
Bridges the gap between the Garmin Approach S1 and the S3. It offers doglegs, layup yardages and a digital scorecard, but stops short of a touch screen with manual pin positions. The price should be in the middle too!
- Garmin Approach S1 Watch – Ratings Score: 4.5
The Garmin S1 was the first golf GPS watch to hit the mainstream. It’s popularity and ratings continue to be amazing. Simplicity, convenience and a very competitive price.
- Garmin Approach G6 – Ratings Score: 4.36
This is our #1 recommendation for a full featured golf GPS. A responsive, bright touchscreen with lots of details and a fair price.
- Garmin Approach S3 Watch – Ratings Score: 4.24
This is one slick watch and definitely our top pick if price is not an issue. We love the touchscreen, distances to hazards, shot measuring and scorecard. However it’s not for everyone – if simplicity is more your style, the Garmin S1 is probably a better choice.
- Garmin Approach G5 – Ratings Score: 4.17
This is one of the best values in a Full-Featured golf GPS device. It’s preloaded with golf courses, is easy to use and doesn’t have any fees. The reviews don’t quite measure up to the Garmin G6, but if your budget is tight, you’ll want to take a look at the G5.
- Golf Buddy Voice+ Watch – New
We expect to see this as one of the highest rated and most popular golf GPS units this year. It adds an hour of battery life and a removable watch band to it’s predecessor (the GolfBuddy Voice). It gives visual and auditory distances to the front, middle and back of every green. It’s simple, convenient and reasonably priced.
- Golf Buddy Voice – Ratings Score: 4.57
This little unit has quickly become a star in the golf GPS world. It gives visual and auditory distances to the front, middle and back of every green. It’s simple, convenient and reasonably priced.
- Golf Buddy Tour – Ratings Score: 4.27
A highly rated Mid-Range golf GPS at a fantastically low price. Preloaded with golf courses, no annual fees and ease of use, give this unit an edge in the ratings.
- Golf Buddy World Platinum – Ratings Score: 3.92
Not a bad device, but there are better models for the money.
- Golf Buddy World – Ratings Score: 3.77
Definitely worth considering if lots of features and a low price are important to you. It’s a small full-featured rangefinder with a nice price point.
- Golf Buddy Platinum II (2012) – Ratings Score: 3.35
Golf Buddy was trying to improve upon previous versions, but early indications are that you should stay away from this one.
- Izzo Swami 3000 – Ratings Score: 4.25
A very basic golf GPS with a wonderfully low price. It’s preloaded with courses and has no annual fees. Ratings are very good.
- Izzo Swami 4000 – Ratings Score: 4.11
This is a great looking, easy to read golf GPS. It only has the basic front middle and back distance information, but it’s preloaded, has a scorecard and shot measuring feature.
- Izzo Swami Watch – Ratings Score: 3.78
A great price for a golf watch. Like everything in the Izzo Swami line, it only has distances to the front, middle and back of the greens. It is preloaded, has a scorecard and shot measuring feature. For those with small wrists, this may not be the best choice.
- MOTOACTV Golf Watch – Ratings Score: 3.92
The MOTOACTV is a fitness watch with several editions to make it a multi-sport watch. The Golf Edition does an okay job, but unless you plan to use it for other fitness training, there are better choices in golf watches.
- Pebble E-Paper Watch – New
If you’re looking for a golf GPS watch that you simply use on the golf course, this isn’t the watch for you. However, if you are interested in a Smartwatch that works with your Smartphone for other applications as well, this may be the ticket for you.
- SkyCaddie Watch – New
The SkyCaddie Golf Watch would be a great value if only there were no annual membership fees.
- SkyCaddie Gimme – New
Although the base price is reasonable, SkyCaddie charges annual fees for using the Gimme. We believe other golf GPS devices without annual fees are the way to go.
- SkyCaddie Breeze – Ratings Score: 4.17
SkyCaddie Breeze requires annual membership fees even with the basic version. The basic version only includes front, middle and back distances. Upgrade packs are available to provide more features and distances to additional targets.
- SkyCaddie SGX – Ratings Score: 3.95
We think it’s tough for SkyCaddie to compete, as none of the other full-featured golf GPS devices charge annual fees or require downloads. The SGX does a great job on the course, but holds a limited number of courses, so you’ll have to keep going back to your computer.
- SkyCaddie SGXw – Ratings Score: 3.65
Although the wifi feature on this golf GPS is an improvement over other SkyCaddie models, it’s still a lot more work and a lot more money than other full-featured devices and it’s reflected in low user ratings.
- Voice Caddie VC200 – Ratings Score: 4.67
The VC200 provides distance to the middle of the green and it can measure and track your shots. There is not screen, so all information is via audio. Other voice GPS devices seem to offer more features at a similar price.
