I finally upgraded from the 5 to a touch.

I have three views set, HoleVue, IntelliGreen, targets. That's also the order in which they show up when I press the view button. I'd prefer the targets screen to come before the IntelliGreen.

When you get to the target screen, it displays the farthest targets first and you have to scroll down to get to the closer ones. Kind of a pain on the tee of a par 5.

I'd like them to add the option of tapping on a target to get more detailed information. The 5 had that.

RangeVue on/off should be a universal setting.

No, I believe the Target View is always the 3rd view displayed. Having it displayed before the IntelliGreen view does makes more sense, though. Also, an option to display the target list sorted by closest to furthest would be nice.

RangeView can be turned on/off on each hole by tapping outside the fairway on the HoleView. I don't believe there's a global setting for disabling the feature.

Right, no global option, but I noticed that when I have a course already loaded and press "menu" it shows "round options." One of options there is RangeVue: without clubs, with clubs, or off.

Anyone know if there is a way to sync or update the Touch with a pin site such as EZLocater? Would be great to be able to get the downloads for the day and have them right on screen...

I submitted these via chat today. Maybe they'll see that they make sense and implement them.

Wow, an update. Unfortunately they didn’t move Targets ahead of Intelligreen in the view order.

Yeah, I got an email notifying me about the update. It looks like the big new feature is an auto-dim function that turns off the backlight after 30 seconds of inactivity. The backlight turns on when the screen is touched. It should add a bit to the battery life.

Hi Everyone,

I've been playing w/ the SC Linx watch for 3 years and the battery is dying on me (will not keep a charge for an entire round).  I spoke to a rep (via chat) to see if I could replace the battery but it's not possible (and I just renewed my membership 10 months ago for 3 years).  So, I'm searching for my next SC device.  

I may get another watch but I'm also considering the Touch.  Hoping someone can help w/ some basic questions:

1) Is it small enough to throw in my pocket during the round? I don't think I would ever wear it on my belt.  From the specs it looks like it's not as thin as say an iphone but it doesn't look too bad.

2) When I go on boys trips, we usually plat 36+ holes a day.  If I bring a portable battery charger, can I charge it while using it?

3) On the website there is an image w/ overlays with recommended club to use - how does it know how far I hit a club? Is that something you configure by club or can you measure a shot and then tell it what club you hit?


Appreciate the help.

I think it's small enough to fit in your pocket, but it's much thicker than a modern smartphone. It would be rather bulky. I clip it on my belt, and it's barely noticeable.

I get two rounds out of the battery with the back light set to 25%. The latest software update automatically dims the screen after a few minutes of inactivity, which is supposed to increase the battery life. I see no reason why a battery pack wouldn't work.

Yes, I believe you enter your clubs w/ distances in the settings menu. Keep in mind that this feature is not legal in competition.

I've had my Touch for two seasons now, and while not perfect, I think it's the best Skycaddie to date.
