Question about the sc200. If you're using it on a typical mat at a range (say 5'x5'), are you putting the monitor on the mat and setting up the required minimum amount from the device (assuming there is room) or are you putting it on the ground behind? If behind, what does the lip of the mat or the change in levels do to the readings? Thanks.

I only used it yesterday with the SC200 behind the mat on the concrete. You're right though, the manual (or Q&A i read) said that it should be on the same level as the unit. I'm just not sure how to do that with driver (or if it's as important) given the elevated tee height. I'll give it a whirl today with my irons and let you know if i see the readings being different/better

I think people save the box the SC200 came in and put it on that. Otherwise, a standard range mat is about 1.5" thick so you could look for a piece of wood or rubber or something that is 4"x6"x1.5" (or similar dimensions).

Oooh, good idea, but yeah, that would be too thick. Although....maybe opening the box and putting it on the foam could work. Good call mate, i'll give it a whirl shortly!!

Now if only i could figure out how to mute the thing.

That's pretty interesting. They at least layout the +/- on the radar specs:

I like the look of that. Just set it up on the range with a golf ball. Display easy to read from where you stand, no need to turn around and check a phone or display.

following up, i put it on the box and it seemed just as accurate as when it was on the ground. But regardless, i have it anyways, so it'll go on the box going forward. thanks!

That's a base quad.  You then add club data, putting, software etc.

Yea we aren't going the Quad route for sure.
I'm happy with the GC2 (HMT on the way) with FR1 for practice mode.  Son puts it in fitting mode and captures all of his data points.

We have TGC so I can play their courses.  Protee has a great Online tour schedule as well.
They just released TGC 2019 Alpha for testing yesterday.  I've been testing it and the graphics are unreal.

JNPG and OGT knock the protee tour's socks off.  It's not even close.  

Jealous you have an HMT, very cool.

Have you tried the Protee tour lately?  Not sure what it was like before 2018.  I've some playing partners that have both now and believe Protee. http://golfsimulatortours.com/home.php
Is much better.  I like it that its free.  I believe JNPG is 40 bucks I think right?
