Just received the system from the Kickstarter Campaign yesterday and will be heading out for my first round in a few hours, so hoping it all goes smooth.

https://golfpadgps.com/link/

Been using the GolfPadGPS app since the spring and pretty impressed with the way it works with the apple watch series 2 and iPhone 7.

Was using Golflogix before this and GolfPadGPS certainly is more responsive on the watch and allows you to do more. Yes it does require an annual subscription, but it's not a big deal and they are continually adding features and improving things. Really liking the app so here hoping the link system works as well as it was advertised too...

Will post an update later.

Also for attaching the tag to a putter grip that is counterbalanced all I did was snip the plastic screw off the tag with some side cutters and used a few pieces of 3M double sided Autobody trim tape to secure it to the end. Seems to hold really well, sits flat, yet can still be removed with a little effort if need be.

Tight Lies!

Whats the difference between golfpadgps and game golf?

Same basic idea except game golf seems to be a lot less expensive

I'm also curious about first impressions. Seems like the two major advantages over game golf are 1) improved accuracy from using both GPS and GLONASS and 2) more discreet head unit since its smaller and black instead of red.

Put in my online order this past Wednesday, but I'm still waiting on shipping confirmation. It will be my first golf tracking "gadget". I can't wait to try it out. Looking forward to hear how it works out.

Have used the premium ap for several years and its a good score keeper and works well with my Apple watch, and worked well with my Pebble when I wore that.

however, 229 plus a 20 / year subscription in order to use the thing is a little steep given the competition.  my $.02, but dunno...

Well three rounds with it so far works fairly well little buggy sometimes stops responding but  for the most part it works very well hopefully after a few updates and more people are using them will get more steady unit is very small and discreet tag stay in well, they have a little work to do with some of the logic as the satellites seemed to confuse what hole I was on when close to another hole same spot on course for each round so far. Easy to correct and I'm sure they will get it corrected. Easy to tell when shot is recognized. Once I get more in habit of taging it will be even better as sometimes I forgot

how is the computer interface/scorecard/beat your friends part of the system.. that is the entire idea that game golf was built upon, online interaction and competition, and it kinda fell flat in that regards... now they have started moving to the online, PGA pro watching his students from afar and what not...

how does the GolfPad system work for that....or is it completely iOS based?

Haven't really looked at that myself but Golfpad is for Android or IOS, in order to use the TAGS with IOS you need the link system, but otherwise you could use a smart watch or phone and just use the system by itself, and with quite a few Android systems you can just use the phone with the TAGS.

So after saying that I have only been using it this system and have had a lot of guys I golf with try it out and almost everyone likes it. One guy preferred Golflogix and went to that instead.

What does impress me with them is that they seem to listen when you actually tell them something so if there is something that you would like to see just ask.

They do have an online dashboard so to speak where you can log in and check out more details about your stats, but I haven't really dug into it as off yet.

And if your not really interested in the TAGS and just want something that works with smartwatches I think theirs works with more brands than any other. Using a golf app on the watch is why I originally bought my apple watch VS the golf GPS watches that are around. I have tried several apps on the watch and I find the golf pad the quickest, easiest and most stable of them all. (Compared to Arccos, Golflogix, Golf Shot, Hole 19 or something and another one but can remember the name).

Will keep ya posted as things get updated and hopefully system improves so that it's good and stable, That's why I got rid of my Arccos system as it would just stop tracking shots or lock up so I was checking after every shot to see if it was registering, and was really slow on the watch. This was the first version and not the newer 360, buts sounds like people are having issues with I as well.

yeah, I have had GolfPad on my phone for, crap, I guess 4+ years now....  it is in my opinion, the easiest of all the phone apps... the only thing I don't like is the way it interacts with the Apple watch, as far as getting to the information I want...  I want back middle front, and if there is a hazard, I would like to have easy access to it. Every time I want to access something, it tries to put a shot in.. but i all honesty, I haven't spent a ton of time with it... as I have a Garmin S6.  which is easier to get the information.   I just prefer wearing my apple watch and my 343470938457 bands that match my 23904820957 shoes... yes, my wife picks on me about it too...

I have used the Pro version of the software for two years now and got my LINK unit in the first wave and have been using it for about two months.  It has its quirks (takes a few minutes for the GPS to lock in on startup, had to reset it with a paper clip a few times when it lost contact with the phone, shots recorded between when it lost link with the phone and reset immediately showed up on the phone so nothing was lost) but I am very happy with it.  I do wish it would not require my phone as a middleman to send distance data to my watch though so I can leave my phone on the cart when I walk to my ball but that is understandable as they both work with the app and not each other directly.  The unit is rather small and I don't even notice it on my belt.  The battery lasts a long time.  GolfPad says it lasts for two rounds but I can get three out of it comfortably if I forget to charge it.

As far as the social features go I don't have anyone around me with the system to test it with (I tend to play alone) but I know it has the ability to email scorecards to the other players in your group and GolfPad advertises that if multiple players in your group use the software, it will sync scorecards with them.

Well the good news is that they released version2 of the firmware and made some nice improvements...
stayed connected whole time I was playing yesterday, didn't fail to tag a single shot, and never shut off.

I think above he meant to say 2 rounds not hours and yes it should easily be able to go for two full rounds.

Still a little more polish to go but currently no less buggy then say Arccos which has been out for over three years so I think they are doing well.

In a few months I'm confident that it will be very hard to beat, just have to remember to get into the habit of tagging each shot as you go. You can always do this later and can even move the shots to approx. locations to where they took place if you forget, but the more you tag the more accurate things will be...

I most often forget to tag the putts, and more often then not just use my watch for that.

I got the pads and LINK the other week, but my LINK was malfunctioning, so had to use my phone to tag for my first rounds.  I just received a replacement LINK device and plan to use it this weekend.

Thanks!

You don't need your phone on you to track shots if you have LINK since it has GPS unit.  However, if  I understand correctly, if you're using a smartwatch to get distances for your approach, the LINK device will not transmit GPS yardage information directly to your smartwatch.  

I believe it may have to do with the fact that different smartwatches (Pebble, Android Wear, Samsung Gear) use different software (the watch has an installed app specific to it's platform that connects with the Golfpad app and also, the smartphone has a specific companion app for each smartwatch platform (Samsung Gear app, Pebble App, Android Wear app, etc), but maybe the LINK device doesn't have the ability (processor type) to run the actual companion software/apps, so it's using the phone as a middle man to get the data transmitted to your wrist. The LINK device has the ability to relay direct data wirelessly to both Android and iPhone devices, but it may be very specific/limited pieces of information (GPS location and club data) and specific to Golfpad GPS app coding.

Theoretically, they could include hardware in the LINK device that would be able to relay distance data directly to a smartwatch, but it would likely increase the cost of the LINK reader since it would need to be able to run the companion apps to run Android and Apple apps as well and likely require the ability to have new 'apps' installed if new smartwatch apps (or updates) became available.  This was likely not a great enough benefit (since everyone has a smartphone) to justify increasing the price.

In other words, if there was a unified platform 'Golfpad WATCH' that you could buy ( in conjunction with LINK and TAGS), then it would be very doable, but since there are too many variables with different smartwatch platforms and apps, it's not feasible.

Hopefully all of that made sense.

That is exactly what I was meaning.  If you want to use the LINK and leave the phone elsewhere, you will need a laser if you want to measure distances.

Yes, correct.  Or you have a dedicated GPS device (watch, golfbuddy, etc) that doesn't require the phone GPS data.

I have been a long time user of golfpad premium and recently got tags with link as i had an iphone. I recently switched to android lg g6 and still use the link fkr ease of tagging and saving phone battery.

My next investment is a watch but i wont use it for much else other then golfpad. Ive heard the pebble and pebble 2 are great with android and inexpensive. But will they still work in the future since fitbit boight them out. Sorry im not super techy with smart watches.

If not can anyone recommend a different model at a similar price point compatible with android

I have a Pebble Time Round.   It works great.   I bought a used one for $57 on ebay.   The apps and programs that link the phone and the watch are already created and hosted on the internet.  I'm not super techy either, but I think it will 'work' indefinitely, as there is really no reason to 'remove' the apps from the internet.

I've been using Tags with Android for about a year now and really enjoy them.  Only complaint is I've had 3 die and 1 completely separate, but they've been quickly replaced for free every time.  

As a heads up to anyone looking to add a watch on the cheap, the Magellan Echo can be had in the $15-20 range on eBay and is Gold Pad compatible.  I picked one up after losing my LG G Watch somewhere between clubhouse and home and it's been a solid replacement and well worth the minimal cost.

I've been using Tags with Android for about a year now and really enjoy them.  Only complaint is I've had 3 die and 1 completely separate, but they've been quickly replaced for free every time.  

As a heads up to anyone looking to add a watch on the cheap, the Magellan Echo can be had in the $15-20 range on eBay and is Gold Pad compatible.  I picked one up after losing my LG G Watch somewhere between clubhouse and home and it's been a solid replacement and well worth the minimal cost.

I've been using the Magellan Echo with my tags also for the last few years.  Only use it for golf and it works fine.

Well I have decided to stick with my watch and phone, don't get me wrong the tags are working really well since the last update but I find it easier just to use my watch. It may be because I have been doing it for so long with the watch, but I haven't had a battery issue sine the latest IOS updates so I'm happy to just stick with that. Did a tournament this weekend and wasn't allowed to use tags without explaining a bunch so just used my watch and was happy with just that....

So.... if anyone wants to try them I have a full set of tags with one extra (so 16 intact tags) plus one other, that I have snipped the screw off and used double sided adhesive tape so that I can attach to my counter balanced putter (so 17 tags in total) plus updated link system with cable and one code for one full year of full membership (Already a premium member so never used the code)

I'm thinking I will pass it on for $135 CAN or $110 US, which is more than 50% less than what it sells for now, and also a lot less than I paid with the extra tags and shipping, even with the kick starter deal.

So if your interested in trying it, you will save big. Will be posting elsewhere as well. Lightly used system

Paypal only. Will ship only to US and Canada.

Cheers
