Great golf GPS for the money

I love this app. I am avid recreational golfer, and I will sometimes play unfamiliar courses where I don't have a good idea of my yardage to the green. Greenfinder is an essential piece of golf equipment for me in those situations. I have friends who have laser rangefinders and dedicated golf GPS devices, and I am completely sold on Greenfinder. And for $34.99, heck, you could buy 10 of these apps for the price of a single comparable device at your golf equipment store. This app is a must-have for the golfer with an iPhone!
It does drain battery, so definitely get an external battery. I bought the Kensington battery pack, which works just fine.

Update review 5/29/09
I can't believe any review less than 4 stars. This is hands down the best golf gps app. Have had it for a year, sold my sky caddie and use greenfinder all the time. They have complied with course requests PROMPTLY. Five stars! A backup battery helps but that's an iPhone issue, not greenfinders fault. Set to never on autolock and sleep your phone between shots if you cannot get a backup battery. Definitely worth the purchase price.
Reviewed a couple of days ago at 4 stars (****) after using the application for the first time on Eisenhower Blue in East Meadow, NY. Happily upping my rating to 5 stars (*****) after playing Eisenhower Red yesterday. Screen brightness was fine at about 40%. Cut off wireless and bluetooth. I know the course well enough to put the phone to sleep a lot but as someone else recommended, set auto off to "never," so it was on a fair amount of time. Battery life was sufficient - accuracy was sufficient - presentation is terrific. I now have the Lithium backup battery I ordered, so I'm set under all conditions. This application is an excellent buy at $35. Looking forward to any other offerings Itinerant may have in the future. They know what they're doing and they do it well.
Greanfinder not great
Average at best. Takes a long time to get the regular yardage. Priced for what is out there that is comprable.
