REVIEW: IZZO Swami 3000 GPS
The second factor that I like as an improvement is that the name of the course is listed on the Swami. While the original and the newer version automatically find the course, it just is comforting to know the name and that it found the one you are playing for sure.
The third improvement is the lack of fees. No yearly fee, less initial cost up front makes this the most economical easiest to use GPS on the market. I also the battery life better than the previous Swami and better than most other units on the market. I could get 4 rounds in with it, as long as I turned it off after the round. While it will sleep after some time sitting, it does drain the battery. It still has the same belt clip for on course play or will fit simply into any pants pocket.
While it still doesn’t have automatic hole advance or any other distances, like bunkers or water hazards, it offer the basic front back center of every hole. It is easy to use and now it doesn’t have a single other fee. So if you just want simple distance to the pin on each hole on almost every course you will play, the Swami is your answer.
