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.

Izzo Swami 4000+ User Rating: 4.25 Stars 4.25 out of 5 (383 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

A unit priced this low usually doesn’t get quite so many rave reviews. If the size and features match your needs, we wholeheartedly recommend this unit. There are a couple of valid complaints that you should consider, but keep in mind that almost 90% of all comments we considered relevant, were POSITIVE.

First, we will list the features and below that will be our summary of the pros and cons.

Izzo Swami 4000+ Notable Features
  • Distances to the front, middle, and back of the green is displayed on the main screen
  • Distances to hazards and doglegs
  • Pre-loaded with 30,000+ worldwide courses
  • No computer downloads or annual subscription required
  • Large, vibrant, easy to read 1.8” color display
  • Course map editing feature
  • Auto-hole advance
  • Shot distance measurement
  • Supports 4 different languages
  • Displays distances in yards or meters
  • Rechargeable lithium-ion battery – lasts up to two rounds
  • Durable and waterproof
  • 1 year limited warranty
Izzo Swami 4000+ Pros and Cons (Most mentioned are listed first.)
  • Accuracy – There were a huge number of users who felt the Swami 4000+ was extremely accurate and not one who complained about the accuracy. That is almost unheard of in golf GPS.
  • Value – Again, many of the reviewers felt this was an amazing value and none complained.
  • Ease of Use – Lots of praise and no complaints.
  • Battery Life – Quite a few users mention that the battery life was good and we saw no complaints.
  • Hazards and Doglegs – This was a popular feature, however, there were a few complaints that there were not enough hazards listed.
  • Auto Hole Advance – This is the top complaint for the Swami 4000+, but no one considers it a deal-breaker. The auto hole advance on the Swami 4000+ only works if you take the unit onto the green with you. The upside to this flaw is that it a simple button press to manually move to the next hole.
  • Screen Readability – Of the users that mentioned the display and readability, most loved it. However, there were a couple that thought it wasn’t great in bright sunlight.
  • # of Courses – Most users that mentioned this were happy with the number of courses. There were, however, several mentions of a course not being in the database. Most users who had reached out to Izzo to have a course added were successful, but there was a delay of several weeks.
  • Compared to Competion – Both in accuracy and value, quite a few users were happy with comparisions to other golf GPS models.
  • Auto Course Recognition – Most people were satisfied in the the amount of time it took to find a course, but there were a couple of comments on it take a little longer than the user thought it should.
  • Charges Fast – Quite a few users mentioned that this device charges quickly and we saw no complaints.
  • Size – Although one user wished it was even larger, the rest of the comments about the size of the unit were very positive.
  • Customer Service – A few users were pleased with the responsiveness of customer service and a couple were unhappy. Editor’s Note: We noticed that for many of the complaints we saw, Izzo had reached out encouraging the user to call for help. Here’s the number in case you ever need it! (800) 777-7899.
  • Problems with the Clip – There were a few users who had trouble with the screw on the belt clip coming out and either being lost or stripped. We did see Izzo offer to replace those parts for free.

Overall, we think this a terrific golf GPS and love the size of it for people who have trouble seeing the smaller displays. We’re thrilled that Izzo added hazards to this model. We wish the Auto Hole Advance worked without carrying it to the green, but consider that a minor inconvenience.

Swami Sport GPS Review

'Izzo Swami Sport'

Order from Amazon

Our Swami Sport GPS Review will be completed in the coming weeks, but at first glance we think this unit looks like a great fit for a select set of golfers. First of all, the price is right for anyone on a budget. Secondly, we love the way this unit is designed to clip onto a golf bag. Honestly, other than having a golf watch on your wrist, we think clipping a GPS right on your bag is the most convenient place to have it. The bold, bright color will ensure that you don’t have trouble spotting it!

Izzo Swami Sport User Rating: 3.46 Stars 3.46 out of 5 (138 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

The unit displays distance to the center in a large font and the distances to front and back in a medium sized font. The hole number, par and time of day are in a small font, but it’s nice that everything shows on the main screen. As the long is it changes holes automatically, there wouldn’t be any need to touch the unit during the round. However, in some Izzo devices, we’ve found that if left in a cart away from the green, the auto hole advance does not work. On this unit, it looks like easy enough to change holes manually with the press of a button.

It’s certainly small enough to carry in your pocket, but accidental button presses could be a problem.

Izzo continues to put out quality low cost golf GPS units that deliver simplicity and accuracy, so we’re anxious to put this one to the test.

Izzo Swami Voice User Rating: 2.82 Stars 2.82 out of 5 (37 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

However, until the price drops, the Swami Voice will have a tough time competing with the GolfBuddy Voice and the GolfBuddy Voice+, both of which are highly rated and reasonably priced. Still, the Izzo Swami Voice measures up very well from a features/price perspective and comes with everything you need to get started.

Notable Features
  • Visual and verbal distances to the front, middle and back of every green.
  • Preloaded with over 30,000 golf courses. No fees ever!
  • Auto hole advance
  • Auto course recognition
  • Includes wrist band – available in a variety of colors.
  • Rechargeable battery lasts 6-8 hours.
  • Durable and water resistant.
