We will give you the review of GolfBuddy Voice GPS. It is a talking GPS with the dimension of height 42.8 mm, width 42.8 mm, and depth 11 mm. This small tool has 0.99 oz or similar with 28-grams weight including the battery. Looking into the features, this first trusted talking GPS provides many versatilities. Beside the function of showing local time, it has the automatic course and hole recognition feature. We can simply start playing as the unit will locate your course automatically. The button will give you the distance from your position to the green through many directions: front, center, and the back. The feature of dynamic green view enables you to see the area visualization. When you have arrived at the desired location, the button will finish measuring and view the measured distance. Nevertheless, there is no information in this device whether it is water resistant or not. We need to be careful with some wet conditions then. The device is supported by 9-hours operation life battery.
The following review is GolfBuddy VS4. It is the development of the previous one with the bigger size. It consists of height 45 mm, width 45.5 mm, and depth 12.5 mm. The weight is a little bit heavier in 1.02 oz as the same as 29 grams including the battery. There are no significant differences from its ability because you can find the same features here. You can hear the distance starting from your current position to the front, center, and back of the green. This device also has the feature of shot distance measurement and dynamic green view. In addition, it has been supplied by water resistant feature which helps the device safe from several wet conditions. It is also supported by 10-hours operation life battery.
