Best GPS for $100 (or so)
Posted 23 July 2018 - 11:42 AM
Accurate within 3-5 yards or so based on my experience which is plenty for me. The distances are accurate with about a 1 second lag after you stop walking (I have to wait to make sure and watch that last 2-5 yards tick down before I'm confident it has settled). My dad has the Bushnell Ion and they have basically identical features, his lag time to get the right distance seemed to be a bit longer and he's had some issues with it turning off randomly. Bushnell looks more like a traditional watch and the Garmin looks like a fit bit and is smaller on the wrist. Bushnell has physical buttons and Garmin is mostly touchscreen with one home button.
I think the new Bushnell Ion 2 is about $170 and the Garmin Approach X10 is $200, you may be able to find the Bushnell Neo Ion for about $150 or less and I think you'd be happy with that.

Edit: I see you wanted experience. My experience is with the Bushnell neo the predecessor of the Phantom. It was simple, quick and easy to use. Price point was the same. Had it for years and still ticking. Only issue is sometimes I have to tell it what course I am on because there are supposedly not enough satellites in range. After that it works great.

It gives front, middle, and back, but not distance to hazards. I really like it. In fact, I purchased it again when my first one was pilfered.
I don't like to wear a watch on the course. I wear the device on my belt and tap the voice button as I slip my bag of my shoulder. Most people think it's a pedometer as I get such a seamless read. But if you're fine with wearing a watch, I don't know that the voice feature would add anything of value.

I don't need an expensive range finder anymore. This $3 app does everything I need. You can zoom in on a hole, which utilizes Google Maps, and you can long-press on any spot on the screen and get an accurate distance to that spot. On Par 3s, I stand next to people with laser rangefinders; I guesstimate where the pin is, find the same spot on the map and long-press for distance, and I'm almost always (like 95% of the time) within 2 yard of the rangefinder.
I wish you could customize the stats that it tracks as well as the ability to only display the clubs in your bag, but those are insignificant complaints.
