Curious if anyone has upgraded from the original Bushnell Hybrid GPS Rangefinder (from years ago) to the new version that just launched recently. My old one is still working well, but the new one is intriguing.

If you have used both, what are your thoughts on the newest version?

This is the original verrsion I am talking about: (http://www.criticalg...efinder-review/)

This is the new version I am interested in: (https://www.golf.com...angefinder-gps/)

One immediate difference I have notice between the 2 is that on the old version there is only one port to charge both the rangefinder and the gps unit. It looks like on the new version there is a charging port for the GPS unit and a separate CR2 battery for the rangefinder.

Let me know your thoughts on the comparison and if it worth the upgrade.

From what I can tell the new one is having trouble with battery drain on the GPS, they have integrated the GPS yardage in to the screen but if you search the threads numerous people have expressed dissatisfaction with the Hybrid and returned it for several reasons.

I LOVE my original. I get the center, front and back of the green, instantly, without having to shoot the laser. Then, I can take one shot for the flag and be good to go. Way faster than the laser only players, shooting 3 different points.
I agree that my battery has taken a dump, however. My chief concern is that I canít use the laser when the battery is dead or low. The new version seems to have addressed this issue.
