Always use sat nav
Its good that you can receive notifications of emails etc. Also good that its a combined golf and fitness product. When Im not using it for golf I can use it to count steps/heart rate etc. Finds golf course quite quickly too.
Battery life. Only if you turn off all the features except golf will it retain a charge for 4 hours when using GPS. GPS needs to be on to measure distances, which is why I bought it, but it barely lasts a round despite starting fully charged and going into standby mode while you're playing. My lithium battery on my golf trolley lasts 27 holes easily. Because of this I wouldnt recommend it, but if it could last 8 or 12 hours I would. Charging it every time it's used is a bit of a pain (has to be through your laptop). I havent tried to use it to keep score as I doubt it would last the whole round. It has given up on the 16th once. Ive had it a month and used it about 10 times.
