Are you saying they're no longer supporting the GPS-8?

I know when i checked with them they said they were no longer creating new devices they were moving completely to the app market. So i am thinking they would end support eventually.
I moved to Sky-caddie and haven't looked back. I did like the device just was dissapointed with no future devices and improvements.

Ahh, gotcha.  I actually have the GPS-8 and never use it as I've gone rangefinder.  Discontinuing support for this would be a bummer as I think the GPS-8 is a great device that's very simple to use and provides a wealth of information without any unneeded time consuming bells and whistles.

I still have a GPS-8.  That is a great product.  Easy to see and easy to use.  Only downside is the yearly subscription and it does not hold 20,000+ courses like new products.  They told me that they still support the product and gave me instructions on how to log on and pay them money.  I have not updated it in a few years and it still works buy I can not change courses on it unless I pay them.  Looking for an equal replacement.

This is where I am at as well.  I have my local 10-12 courses loaded on the unit, and it will keep it as such until I re-up my subscription.  (Though I'm tempted to sell for someone looking for a GPS unit on the cheap.)  I never really thought of uploading courses as a hassle,  I don't have 20k courses near me!  I've only done it 2-3 times per year depending on courses I'd play while on vacation.  The one advantage this unit has is that Golf Logix will add and/or revise courses (and will notify you if they've updated any that you've loaded), and does it by request as well.  That's part of what you're paying yearly for....  and it's also something that preloaded units lack (I think anyway).  So at least there is/was some service behind the annual fee.

Cant argue with you on that, it is simple and gives you what you need nothing more nothing less.

I still use the GPS 7 (the original, green Golflogix model).  Would love to find an equal replacement/upgrade as well.  My over-50 eyes aren't compatible with the screen on DH's Garmin G3.

The course that I have been playing underwent a renovation earlier this year and was dropped from the GolfLogix database, I requested that the course be re-added, and after supplying a requested scorecard, the course was added the same day.  They are using the satellite images for the holes, so not everything (new bunkers, re-shaped greens) is included as the images are at least two years old.  But at least it's a start, and we'll see how it goes this weekend.

This may be a stupid question. If the course was renovated this year, and they are using imagery that is two years old, how can it possibly be accurate?

I think he's just saying that Golflogix is responsive to requests.  I'm sure they'll revise again once the renovation is complete.

They probably used 2012 imagery post-renovation imagery. They just can't show it because of copyright assuming it's the application he is referring to which only shows Google or Picture view. It would be completely pointless to remove a course and add it again later if the GPS points are old. Why remove it in the first place only to add it again using old mapping.

Exactly.  Was just pointing out that they were responsive to my request.  For the most part, the holes did not change.  There was some reshaping of greens and additional bunkers, but the distance to the center of the greens is still the same.  Will find out for sure when I get back out there this weekend.
