Review: Golf Buddy Voice 2 GPS
What I’ve shared with you above is nothing new, the old models did that. So what’s new? The Golf Buddy Voice 2 GPS has some major improvements in battery life. Most GPS models make it 18-36 holes at best. This one I made 54 holes easily and might have even been able to make 72. (I charged it before it was completely dead for my next round) This is a big deal since I sometimes forget to charge my GPS units between rounds. This one however will do better in that category. It is still doesn’t have the life of a laser rangefinder, but certainly better than most GPS units. The other big change is the much lower price. At $99 you won’t find too many other options as good as this one.
The Golf Buddy Voice 2 GPS also has the ability to use it without the voice. I found that if you are in a group with “sensitive” golfers, you can turn the voice off, and just look at the screen for yardages to front, middle and back. I clipped it onto my scorecard holder on my ClicGear cart and had the yardages in front of me all round long.
I like things that are simple, easy and work well. The Golf Buddy Voice 2 is just that. The distances are very accurate (comparing to laser) and the automatic features mean there is little I have to do to make it function. It has voice when you want it at the push of a button and silence when you need it. The screen is great if you don’t wear it on your hat and clip it somewhere else. It is OK to listen to the voice in your head if it is the Golf Buddy Voice 2 GPS.
