Here is our Izzo Swami 6000 Review and all the product features and specs.

Izzo Swami 6000 User Rating: 4.42 Stars 4.42 out of 5 (2044 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.
The Izzo Swami 6000 has a colorful screen with LARGE easy-to-read distances to the front, middle, and back of every green. That alone makes this the ideal pick for anyone who might struggle to see the numbers on other golf GPS devices. Honestly, it’s just nicer to look at than others in this price range. We’re also impressed by

the rave reviews on battery life. Izzo claims 16 hours and users seem to agree.

Although the Swami 6000 has a built-in scorecard, reviews struggled to use it. You either have to record your score before heading to the next tee or wait until you are at least 60 yards down the next fairway due to a persistent auto-hole advance feature. That’s not exactly the perfect time to enter your score, so we don’t recommend this model if scorekeeping is on your desired feature list. If that’s you, we suggest checking out Garmin’s golf GPS lineup.

The price point on this model is perfect for what it offers. It’s easy to see and easy to use. It also provides distances to hazards and doglegs and a strong magnet for mounting to your cart or the included belt clip.

      Hi Larry,

      I don’t see any instructions for replacing the battery in the Izzo Swami 6000, so I assume Izzo doesn’t intend for it to be replaced. That said, there is a listing on Amazon for a replacement battery. I don’t know anything about DIY battery replacement, but here’s the link if you want to take a look.
