Score compiled from multiple sources.

For our Bushnell Neo+ Review, we took notes on dozens of reviews from everyday users. By far the most common theme of all the reviews was the ease of use of the Bushnell neo+. Accuracy, price and size were also common praises of this small GPS rangefinder. In total, about 89% of all comments noted were positive and of the few negative comments, we didn’t think any were “deal breakers”, but take a look for yourself at our list of most mentioned pros and cons below.

Notes about the Bushnell neo+ GPS rangefinder:

The neo+ is preloaded with front, center, and back of the green distances, plus distances to key hazards for courses throughout the United States and Canada. You can also add custom points to any hole. International courses can be download manually. The neo+ also features a high resolution screen, auto-course recognition, auto-hole advance and large text menus. Although it comes preloaded and there are no fees, it does require that you hook it up to your computer and register it within 45 days of its first GPS fix. At that time, it will update the device with the latest golf course information.
