GolfBuddy Voice 2 SE - Read Full Review

GolfBuddy has a winning formula with its GB Voice line. It's small, easy to use, lightweight, with an LCD screen, as well as voice distances. Plus, it's budget-friendly. The GolfBuddy GB Voice 2 SE increases the battery life over previous models to up to 20 hours. That's the most important feature of this solid performing compact golf GPS. We love it! We also love that you can see distances to the front, middle, and back of each green and also switch over to see the shape of the green when you want. It comes preloaded with 40,000 golf courses and can be updated using GolfBuddy GB Manager.

Garmin Approach G10 - Read Full Review

It looks like Garmin is going to give GolfBuddy some real competition in the small clip-on category of golf GPS devices. The Garmin Approach G10 doesn't provide audible distances, but it does offer green views and manual pin placement in addition to distances to the front, middle, and back of every green. It also has a scorecard feature with stats. We particularly like that you can use it with Garmin Connect for online game analysis and record keeping. The price is competitive and the reviews are very good.

GolfBuddy just keeps building on a winning theme. The GolfBuddy Voice 2 claims 14 hours of battery life. That's four hours more than the GolfBuddy VS4! It's water resistant, has the choice of male or female voice, and of course provides distances to the front, middle, and back of the green. It's available in three different colors as well. The wristband can be ordered separately on Amazon.

GolfBuddy Voice X - Read Full Review

The GolfBuddy Voice line has been a huge success from the beginning. The VoiceX is the latest in this line and has a few nice upgrades from its predecessor the GolfBuddy Voice 2. The most notable improvement is that it adds Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone for automatic updates to the golf course you're playing when you enter golf mode. The screen is a little larger and it has a Big Numbers mode and manual pin placement capability. It also adds a fairly detailed GPS activity tracker for runners and walkers. It may sacrifice some battery life for the extra features, but should still easily get 2 full rounds. A watchband is available separately.

Voice Caddie VC300 - Read Full Review

The Voice Caddie VC300 is a great choice for the golfer who wants to keep it simple, especially if he or she wears a cap or visor. It's small, sleek and unobtrusive and provides auditory distances to the front, middle and back of every green. The sound quality is excellent, which is good, since there isn't not a digital display. It also has shot measuring, but we just like the fact that it does what it's supposed to do without any hassle.

  1. I have a bushnell phantom range finder
    I have lost the metal belt clip that came with it
    Can I buy a replacement?

  2. I have to replace the charging cord for my I’m Caddie model # IMC-PW. Is this available.

      Hi Joseph. “I’m Caddie” is out of business, but I think your device uses either a micro- or mini-usb power adapter. These are universal and easy to find. You may even have one in your house that you use for another device. Otherwise, you can pick one up at any store that carries electronics equipment, like Best Buy or Walmart. You can also order them from Amazon. This cable has both the mini and the micro on it, but I cannot guarantee that it would work for you, so it may be better for you to check locally first. Let me know if this helps!

    I just purchased a Garmin G10 to replace my older Bushnell watch (it wasn’t hold a charge for more then 18 holes) but what I noticed was the yardages were anywhere from 2 to 18 yards different. so I lasered at the 150 yard marker and the Bushnell was 153 and the Garmin was 165. Another time I was 104 out and the Garmin was telling me 118. This is a big distance gap between the two. Is there any way to re-calibrate the Garmin?

    • Golf Rangefinder Shop says

      Hi Jim. Laser and GPS won’t usually be exactly the same because of the pin placement. Laser is accurate to within 2 yards of the object you are hitting, whereas GPS usually gives distances to the middle of the green and sometimes the front and back of the green. On large greens, the distance between the middle of the green and the pin can be significant. GPS is also not as consistent or accurate as laser for other reasons, however, most of them are pretty good these days. If you find the Garmin G10 is not jiving with the laser after adjusting for the pin location, you can contact Garmin support here.
