Description

GreenFinder helps you answer the most asked question on the golf course - "How far is it?"

GolfDigest says GreenFinder is "our favorite in golf distance programs built for GPS-enabled mobile phones". They tested our competitors and said they "weren't as reliable".

GreenFinder turns your iPhone 3G or 3GS into a golf rangefinder. It leverages the built-in GPS to display the distance to the front, center and back of the green as well as hazards along the fairway.

Features:

- Distance to the front, center and back of the green

- Distance to hazards along the fairway

- Can display your shot length

- Auto-advances to the next hole

- Use GPS to search for nearby courses

- Over 10, 000 courses available and growing by 250+ every week

- Ability to mark your own course

- Supports yards and meters

Visit our website to see the full list of golf courses.

The iPhone 3G or 3GS is required. Does not work on the original iPhone or iPod Touch.

Be sure to have a fully charged iPhone before heading to the course, because GPS is demanding on the battery.

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.
