There are many models of Golf GPS devices in the market. But if you bring your phone to tee why buy another device when you can just use your smartphone to help you around the course.
One of the better ones out there is GolfLogix. Founded in 1999, GolfLogix was the first to introduce handheld GPS to the golf industry and holds a U.S. patent for its unique GPS and Internet-based club tracking application. Most of these Golf GPS apps do not come free. As of this writing GolfLogix costs $19.99 from iTunes App Store and GooglePlay. It has all the features you need around the course. It even sends personalized lessons and videos to your smartphone immediately after every round tips with tips from the top players. To make golfing even more convenient they have partnered with GolfNow.com where you can book your favorite course online and pick a tee-time deal that fits your schedule and budget.
Costing a little more at $24.99 is Mobitee Premium iPhone Golf GPS. The latest version includes full iPhone 5 support. One thing we like about this appp is that it is simple and easy-to-use. It comes with satellite and aerial views of each hole, as well as video flyovers for many holes. A good feature to have if the course is a large one.
Moving up a little more in price is Golfshot ($29.99) which has the most top of the line features. It sets itself apart with its best-in-class stats tracking and graphing. It automatically creates superb color graphics for fairways hit and missed, greens in regulation, sand saves, putts per hole, and more. Additional features include Zoomable aerial view with “TruePoint” touch targeting for distances, Shot distance tracking, automatic course handicap calculator, e-mailable scorecards and iPad support.
