Bushnell may be best known for their laser golf rangefinders, but don’t forget about the Bushnell Golf GPS Devices.
Bushnell neo+ – This is one of the highest rated GPS devices on the market. It comes preloaded with thousands golf courses. It’s simple to use and provides distance information to the front, middle and back of the green as well as hazards. It’s small and it’s one of the best values you can find in a golf GPS.
Bushnell neo+ Golf Watch – Brand new in 2012. Like the neo+, it comes preloaded and provides distances to the front, middle and back of every green. Unfortunately, it does not have distances to hazards. The features are very similar to the highly-rated Garmin S1, but the Bushnell watch promises significantly longer battery life. The competition in the golf watch market has gotten tougher this year, so we’ll have to wait and see how the Bushnell neo+ watch measures up. Be sure to look at our Golf Watch Comparisons.
Bushnell XGC+ – This full-featured golf GPS has one of the lowest price points in its class, but it never really gained traction in the market. It’s preloaded with courses, but requires registration on your computer and after the first year, updates would require an iGolf membership. The full maps are not preloaded, but it will hold up to 50 downloaded maps. Although it’s a decent golf GPS, it probably doesn’t measure up to the competition and the price isn’t enticing enough for us to recommend it. Compare our picks for top-rated full-featured models.
Bushnell Hybrid – This golf GPS device just happens to be embedded in a laser rangefinder. It’s basically like putting a Bushenll neo+ in the side of the Bushnell Tour V2. In our opinion, the hybrid is the best golf rangefinder available because you get exact laser yardages, plus additional information that a GPS can provide. So far, the Bushnell Hybrid has no competition in the hybrid market, but we don’t think it will be too much longer before they do and that can only be good for the consumer!
