This is my Golfshot GPS Review for the iPhone app. I’ve been using Golfshot for about two years now. I originally ran this app on the iPhone 3g, which was still a great app, but the limitations of the iPhone 3G gps made the yardages lag a little bit. When the iPhone 3GS came out, the yardages started updating a lot faster. And now, with the iPhone 4/4S, there is virtually no lag when it comes to the yardages updating. I love this app.
Before buying this app for $29.99, I owned the Golf Logix GPS, which I bought for around $200. It sucked because I had to load the courses on the GPS every time I wanted to play at a different course. It could only hold 20 courses, and I had to pay a yearly subscription fee of $50. Not to mention that I had to change the battery every 2 rounds. It was very very annoying to say the least.
With the Golfshot GPS app, 16,000+ golf courses can be downloaded in an instant over your iphone’s wireless carrier. Not only does the app give you front, back, middle of the green yardages, but it also gives you the distance to a hazard, or a bunker or how many yards til the end of the fairway. It also gives you an aerial view with a simple click. I also love the score tracking feature. I barely even use score cards anymore because the score keeper actually upload all of your rounds to their site, golfshot.com.
Golfshot GPS for the iPhone is hands down the best iPhone app out there. At $29.99 and no subscription fees, you really can’t go wrong. I have used this app for over 200 rounds already, and it gets better with every update. One charge of the iPhone battery will last you an entire round with some spare battery left, and that’s with leaving the GPS on the entire time.
