I'm also feeling the pain.........man, I loved my GG2 (black and white).

Anyone have any recommendations for a new one?  Garmin?  I'm also thinking about going to a range finder although I will miss my front middle back readings.

The site came back on line for a few days now down again.

As for your question about what to get-- I thought the Guru G2 is awesome. I just purchased a bushnell neo x watch and am loving it. You can't beat the convienience of yardage on your wrist. The neo x provides front, center, back at a glance and it will list a couple hazards per hole with the push of a button. Not the detail of the G2,but still pretty darn practical and it's the only watch with pre loaded hazards.

If you want something with more detail, give the garmin g6 a look.

I too have a GG black and white model that I dearly love. I too would be willing to pay a small annual fee to keep the website open for downloads. What is the website address that you are trying to access?

The former company president who posted some on this forum name was Darryl Cornish.  I don't know if he can be tracked down through Facebook or something but might be worth a try.

I purchased a Bushnell neo x watch as well. It is good but it is no way as good as the Golf Guru. I use it when I play a course that I haven't downloaded on my Guru. The hazards are a waste of time because they only list two on each hole. If they tell you how far one is they never give you the distance to clear it. The Guru is excellent with hazards and i find it far more accurate then some of my friends Garmins. If any info comes up about how to download courses again, would appreciate the heads up.

I've tried reaching out to the domain holder of GG, but that doesn't seem too promising.

I also have the Neo X and I'm very pleased with it. I don't view the hazards as a waste like you do, as I do appreciate the distance to a dog leg or to a creek or water and the Neo X often provides distance to clear those water hazards.  I really appreciate the convenience of having yardage on my wrist.

However with that said, the GG2 that I have is still IMHO the best handheld GPS.  My guess/hope is that we may see something like the features of the GG2 on the next generation of a Garmin or Bushnell watch that lists more hazards.  However till then, I'm completely happy with my Neo X for $150.

I did not receive any reply from my email to the domain owner a few weeks ago.
A search of LinkedIn gives us several people affiliated with gpsgolfguru, but I was unable to message them to find some answers with my membership.
Perhaps if someone had an upgraded LinkedIn membership they could direct message Darryl Cornish or Charles Huston, founders of gpsgolfguru, and they could help us owners.  (Both have LinkedIn accounts when searched.)
Even a window,if announced, like earlier in the month when the webpage was operational, giving us opportunity to load courses would be helpful.

The site is not working. I have the original one. I agree that the website is useful to download additional courses which is nice. Although it does not generate any revenue for the company.

Today I was cleaning up some "bookmarks" on my browser and decided to click on the Golf Guru link, and much to my surprise their site is live again!  I figured I'd pass this along just in case any GG owners wanted to load a new course or two.

Just happened to check the site today - it is up -

I tried to quickly grab some courses and sync the unit (002) - the utility says the version is not supported (2051) and to log in to the site to download the updated version.

There is no newer version --

I just logged into their website.  All of my courses were still listed.  That's pretty amazing.   I think I used my Guru 4 once for golf last year when I forgot my Neo X watch.  I really prefer the watch.  As nice as it is hated to have to hit buttons on the G4 screen 3 or 4 times each hole.

Well, I came on here as soon as I could after seeing the site up yesterday. I have guru 4 and I'm getting "version 2.5.0.5 not supported" I guess I'm not the only one.
Really, I just want my home course that I personally mapped to show up again. It somehow deleted over a year ago. I use a rangefinder mostly but that one was very helpful on some blind shots and anything over 200 or on par 5's for layups.
I hope someone gets thru to these guys

I just received an email this morning...

"Hi Bob,



Yes, GPS Golf Guru have gone out of business.

We are an Australian distributor of the Guru 4 product specifically.

As we still have users in Australia using the Guru 4 units, we contracted a software development team to restore the site, and establish the server under our control.

Currently, the site is back up and running, but we are still finalising the new utility program which will enable you to connect to the server and upload courses etc.

The error you received is because the old utility software is not compatible with the new system we have in operation.



This should not be too much longer.

You can see all updates on our Guru 4 support page at www.on-pin.com



Kind regards,



Justin Steer



On-Pin"




Maybe they will have us something before too long!

Redskinfan:
Nice that someone responded.  too bad about guru closing.  I wonder what happens to those of us with gg2.  If Justin contacts you again, please ask him about those of us with older gurus. Can they enable software for us to update our courses.

much obliged,
Don

Justin from On-Pin replied to me and he indicated that all prior versions of the Golf Guru should be supported when the new system is deployed.  He told me to check for updates at the following site:  http://on-pin.com/consumer/support-guru4.html

Their website is up, but they don't have the latest utility for me to sync my G4. 2.0.5.5 doesn,t work. Thought I'd give it another try before renewing my Skycaddie. Any suggestions?

Oops! Didn't see the 2014 comments.

Two part question. Does anyone have an older version of the golf utility < 2.0.5.1 for the G003 model. I haven't used my golf guru in such a long time and wasn't aware that they had gone out of business. I did notice that their site was up and tried to download the utility from there but that install kept having a pop up stating that 2.0.5.1 is no longer supported and to go back to their site for the latest version but there isn't another version to be found. Which leads me to my second question, can we still download courses from their site if there was a working guru utility?

I wished they had given a little warning so I could get the courses I wanted to have on the unit for the rest of it's life.  I've moved on and got the upro mx+.
I used my guru yesterday and it worked flawlessly.  I, like you, want to download more courses but the "sync" function is not still not operational.  The website said they are working to fix the "sync" function, but this as been ongoing for some time. I'm not confident that it will ever be fixed.

My Golf Guru 4 finally died. It went for 10 years. Screen keeps freezing. I have to say it was a nice unit.
