Default Golf/GPS apps for Tour that actually work?! (Verizon)

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know of any good apps that show yardage on the golf course using GPS... The handful of them that I have tried dont work with the Verizon GPS. Thanks all!

I'm using the GolfLogix and it works OK, not great, but just OK. Yardage updates are slow. Would I recommend it? No, only because the GPS updates way too slow.

Default Golf GPS

I play in a league at Presidents Golf Course in Quincy, MA.
A lot of us use Nrange on our BB. It works very well. They offer a trial period, and a lifetime subscription for only $85.

I use GreenFinder. It's $30, but it's only a one time fee. Been using it for a couple months w/o any problems. Highly recommended.

try TeeDroid (TeeDroid Mobile Phone Golf Caddy System). I have been using it for a while now, not on Verizon, but they have a 30 day trial as well so you can try it out.

I find this one to be great as you can keep score and track stats as well, not just yardages.

I have the Curve 8330. I use Intelligolf with an Ambicom GPS Puck.

I find it to be fairly accurate. Sometimes it is exact, compared to the yardage markers. Other times, it can be off by 5 yards, or so.

Some of the courses on the Intelligolf website may not have the GPS locations. You can easily add them using their web-based program, hand enter it using the GPS data obtained from Google Earth, or add them real-time while you are playing a round at the golf course.

I don't know if Intelligolf is compatible with the Tour.

I've been trying Accelgolf - it's free, has great online stats, and has a rangefinder mode and satellite views of the course. They have 20000+ courses in the system and it's very easy to add scorecards for one that's not in the system. Their website is GPS Rangefinder & Mobile Scorecard | AccelGolf - sign up for a free account to upload your game and get access to the stats. The bb app is in app world and available directly from bb.accelgolf.com. Recommended.

Regards,
SMF
