Opting to play in GPS provides you with the distances for the front, middle and back of the green. These are smart yardages, meaning that the points are based on the angle of the player to the green rather than basing the distances on fixed points.
Setting up for GPS Mode
When GPS mode is selected the watch begins to prepare your round by establishing your location and linking this with your pre-downloaded golf course. This should only take a few moments, if you need help downloading courses, please follow this link for more information.
Once GPS has been established, you will then be asked to select the course you are playing from a list. Courses will be ordered from the nearest course to your location to the furthest away course. The course highlighted in bold is the currently selected course. To scroll between options, use the top right button to move up the list and the bottom right bottom to move down the list. When the correct course is highlighted, press the top left button to select this.
After selecting a course, you will be asked to confirm that this is the correct course. Confirm this by pressing the bottom right button which will take you on to the GPS Yardage screen. If the course shown isn’t correct, press the bottom left button which will return you to the course selector.
Once your course has been confirmed, the distances for the first green will appear on your screen. The bottom of the screen will display the hole number and the par for that hole.
If you wish to change the hole number then you can advance to the next hole by pressing the bottom right button and go back to a previous hole by pressing the bottom left button. This will then update the hole and change the yardage distances to show for the new green.
The yardages on the screen will automatically update as you walk around the course.
Lost GPS Signal
If the watch loses GPS signal during the round you will be notified on the screen.
The watch will automatically start to search for GPS in this scenario and, if this happens, you can simply wait for it to do so and the screen will return to yardages.
If you want to end the round at this point press the bottom right button. This will return the watch to the home screen
Ending your round
To complete your round, press the mode button four times. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to end your round, do this by pressing the bottom left button which will then advance you to a summary of your round. If you have pressed this in error and do not wish to end your round, press the mode button to return to the yardages.
The ending of your round will be confirmed by the displaying of your round summary which displays the length of time the round took to complete. From here, press the bottom right button to return to the home screen.
