Excellent set up, thanks for sharing pics and video.
The SkyTrak looks to have a better interface/display than Trackman, really looks good.
$2000 isn't a lot of money for something of that quality. Although, they make you jump through a few technical hoops to get it displayed. Simplify that process and it'll really catch on.
Yeah, I think the "hoop jumping" is probably my least favorite aspect.
Right now, the SkyTrak application needs some attention. Primarily, the main issue is that it doesn't save any settings like how many shots you want displayed, how you want to see the shot drawn, whether or not you want a center line and things of that nature. It's a pain in the butt to have to do that every time. The time to show the shot is also an issue. It definitely shows faster on my iPhone 6+ than it does my wife's iPad. I think that issue will clear up when they get PC integration.
After hitting about 500 shots last night on the WGT simulation app, it's definitely in a beta phase and can be buggy at times. When you open the app, it has to find your SkyTrak which seems to take anywhere from 2-5 minutes and then it can take a while to connect. Then randomly while you're playing, it'll have to find the SkyTrak again, but fortunately, it doesn't take as long.... 10-15 secs or so. It also seems like any movement like rolling a ball into place trips the software into thinking a shot was placed, but nothing registers and it allows you to play the shot for real. Not a big deal, but it just slows the process.
There is SOOOOOO much promise with the SkyTrak as well as the WGT simulation, but both are still in their infancy stages. I think by the end of the year when they move to the 2.0 app, a lot of the issues will have been fixed.
