It's been awhile since Game Golf Live has been released and it's now discounted for the holidays. Usually that means something new is about to drop. Any rumors out there? Curious to see if they can keep up with Arccos and everything they're doing with their relationship with Microsoft (Caddy AI).

Became a GameGolf Live user at the beginning of the 2017 season.  While I thought the hardware and tagging the shots was easy to use the software is lacking.  After a software update they pushed out in May or June I enquired what happened to the basic trend line history of my score.  The reply from the software engineer was that no one used those analytics so they removed it.  Since then I have not seen any updates to the software at all and stopped using it all together.  

They have a user forum that where they track feature requests, the last completed request looks to be dated 2015.  I would recommend Arccos.

I've tried Arccos but I really hated having to have my phone on me with every shot. Also, I was not able to pair my bluetooth speaker to play music and use Arccos at the same time. That's ultimately what caused me to give it up.

Hopefully Game Golf keeps going. Good product overall!

Got this in my spam folder yesterday -- used the original Game Golf system about 3 years ago, and found it distracting and cumbersome to use on the course, so I sold it, but apparently I'm still on a mailing list.

I am surprised that I did not get that email as I am a Game Golf user. I would expect that Game Golf, Skycaddie, and Garmin will probably be coming out with new products that are very similar to each other. Game Golf Live, Skycaddie Touch, and Garmin Approach G8 all have been around for a while and need to be updated.

There was some more stuff about setting up an appointment to come see them at the PGA show, which is not something that I have access to go to, so I'm not sure I got on this list.

If one of them could come up with something that could keep track of shots based on when you actually hit a ball (the technology exists - Blast Motion has that capability), without needing to keep your phone with you or having to tag each shot to a sensor, so it would be seamless during a round, they'd have my money immediately. That seems like the next evolution in these types of trackers.

I should have specified my other requirement--not a watch. I dont ever wear a watch, and could never play golf wearing one.

Looks like they might also be introducing some form of Caddie system :

"This year, we are excited to be announcing our 3rd Generation GAME GOLF product, as well as a first-of-it’s-kind Course Intelligence Tool".

Similiar I would guess to what Arccos introduced last year.

Guess we will have to wait and see what they announce in 12 days or so.

Im very lucky to live in Orlando and am able to attend the show every year.  I'll be interested to see if Skygolf up's the ante with any improvements to their Linx GT platform as well.  Their website just got a nice update and refresh this week so hopefully thats a sign of some new features :)

Yep, got that email as well. Excited to see what Game Golf is coming out with. Better integration with the Apple Watch would be welcome. Also, whatever happened to the partnership with GolfPride to offer their tags being built into grips? Seems like a big missed opportunity.

All you guys that have Game or Arccos, do the nubs in the end of the club ever bug you?

If one of these systems were to partner up with a grip manufacturer and sell grips with the tech built in (like the Cobra irons) I'd be all over it.

I have used both the GG and Arccos systems and have never had an issue with the look or feel of the tags in the clubs.

Personally, I would hate to have an integrated system due to the problems of flexibility. What happens when you want to

a) change the grips
b) sell the club
c) switch out one club for another that week for testing

All of these I can do without any issues currently.

Those are definitely valid points. I meant as an options, not a replacement for the current system.

Between the two systems, did you prefer one over the other?

I kept both and tend to float between the two to be honest.

GG
+ do not need phone
+easier post editing of rounds when needed
+lack of phone makes it easier when roaming/playing in other countries
+more flexibility with keeping older clubs for comparison
+can create rounds on new courses before playing to create a strategy and examine holes
-dashboard is slightly lacking
-tagging each shot
-no real progress on new feature/user requests

Arccos
+no need to tag, just works automatically
+better looking dashboard
-need phone all the time
-batteries required that run out every year and can be fiddly to replace. Plus tend to go mid round and you do not notice
-round editing it not as easy


Last year I used Arccos as I wanted to check out the Caddie feature that they introduced. This year, depending on announcements at CES I will stay with Arccos until the batteries go and will then jump back to GG again for a while :-)
