    Re: Hand Held GPS Systems, are they too advanced / expensive

    The sky caddie aire 2 are fantastic imo.
    Very accurate front /middle/back regardless of what angle you hit into the green from as sky cafdie has mapped every course individually.

    No hole display though

    They give you the hazards bunker carry etc and yearly subs is optional depending on what you want. European courses etc.

    Can be had for under £100
