Tee off with Golf GPS

By Parkins Radnor Subscribe to RSS | December 6th 2011 | Views:

For a man, golf is believed to be the ultimate symbol of having arrived. Teeing off with friends or business acquaintances is one of the best ways to cement relationships. However, the game is still a competitive one and you will want to do your best in it. Investing in some good equipment is the first step. Technology has come a long way in the game of golf and there is now a golf-based GPS that many avid golfers invest in. What this essentially is is a mapping of all the best golf courses in the world.

In order to find a golf GPS system that works best for you, you need to know the fundamentals about these machines. A golf GPS device works on the same principles as a navigational one. Satellites will relay signals and point out where exactly you are positioned on the greens. There is software involved and a few cases in which the files for a particular golf course will have to be loaded onto the device before you can use it.

Features vary from one GPS rangefinder to another. What you will essentially get with every unit is the ability to get information on yardage of every hole to the back of the green as well as to the front and middle. There are also a few GPS devices that will tell you the yardage to the fairway as well as the bunkers and to any other hazards that you play to. In fact, some high-end models will allow you to create your own customized targets for every hole.

Most people are under the impression that if it is based on Golf GPS then it is accurate to a large extent. This however is not true. Varying brands of GPS can show yardage with a differences of few yards. This may not really seem big to the average person but when it comes to the selection of clubs it can make a huge difference. Finding the best GPS device will have to done with good amount of research online.

In order to get the best possible reading from your unit, do not sit in the cart and take a reading. Instead stand right over your ball and make sure there is an open and unobstructed path in between. This should give you a good reading. There are chances that despite this, the device may not be able to give you a reading. All you need to do in such cases is reboot the device.

Look for devices with long lasting batteries. You even get those that come as apps for your smart phone.
