    GolfBuddy WT4 not charging

    Title says it.
    I've started to have problems charging it.
    It's just over a year old.
    When charging properly the battery icon should constantly move from 1 to 4 bars until the icon eventually shows solid.
    My icon now turns solid in a very short time but when removed from the charger it's no further charged than when started.
    I've googled to no avail and the user manual doesn't cover it.
    Many thanks.

    Get in touch with Golf Buddy support, I had a software issue with mine and they asked me to send it back for them to look at (emailed me pre paid shipping label), ended up sending me a new replacement less than a week later. I can't remember if it was still in warranty though, possibly just outside.

    Thanks for the posts.
    I tried a different lead - a Kindle lead fits - but to no avail.
    The GolfBuddy lead charged the Kindle ok.
    I've left it with the "retailer" - my Club Pro.
    He wants to see the problem for himself and if it can't be solved he'll deal with GolfBuddy.
    He rang me to tell me the battery icon had reached three bars but that was after about 5 hours - it usually charges fully in a few hours.
    If it drops back to 1 or 0 rapidly then it can only be the cradle or watch battery.
    I'll go see him again tomorrow

    Hi Beezerk,
    I have messed up the charging cradle for my Golf Buddy WT4 and I note back last year you had a spare one. I'm having trouble getting a replacement and I would be very interested if you still have it.
    If so, happy to pay postage and contribution. Look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,

    If I could find it Ron it's yours, I have a sneaky suspicion it's in one of the many boxes in the loft though.

    Re: GolfBuddy WT4 not charging

    I had one and had 2 software issues and each time they sent me a new unit. This model is very impressive but they do seem to have had some trouble with it. Nevertheless they always seem to sort them out and look after their customers so I wouldn't shy away from contacting them directly.
    No signature any more as they are now frowned upon. But I do play with these...Ping G30 10.5 TFC 419D reg TM M1 3 wood HL regTM RBZ 4 hybridPing G30 5 - U wedgeCleveland CG16 52 & 58 Black Pearl Tour ZipEvnroll ER5 Hatchback 33"Skycaddie LinxStewart X7 Lithium Remote Dream Machine!

    Id edit this and take it to PM if I was you, your address details on a open forum is very trusting, if not a bit daft IMO.
