The following article explains GPS mode and its features.
Opting to play in GPS mode provides you with the distances for the front, middle and back of the green on the watch. This mode does not track your performance. The yardages you are shown are Dynamic Yardages, meaning that the points are based on the angle of the player to the green rather than basing the distances on fixed points.
Setting up for GPS mode
1) Press the top right button on the main screen of your watch to select 'Play' options. This will bring up the game modes screen. Please use the top right button or bottom right button to scroll through the game modes and highlight GPS.
2) Press the top left button to confirm you would like to start your round in GPS mode. Once GPS mode has been selected, the watch will begin to prepare your round by establishing your location and linking this with your previously downloaded golf course. This should only take a few moments, if you need help downloading courses.
3) Once a GPS fix has been established, you will then be asked to select the course you are playing from a list. Courses will be ordered from the nearest course to your location to the furthest away course. The course highlighted in bold is the currently selected course. To scroll between options, use the top right button to move up the list and the bottom right bottom to move down the list. When the correct course is highlighted, press the top left button to select this.
5) After selecting a course, you will be asked to confirm that this is the correct course. Confirm this by pressing the bottom right button which will take you on to the GPS Yardage screen.
Getting started in GPS mode
Once your course has been confirmed, the distances for the first green will appear on your screen. The bottom of the screen will display the hole number and the par for that hole.
If you wish to change the hole number then you can advance to the next hole by pressing the bottom right button and go back to a previous hole by pressing the bottom left button. This will then update the hole and change the yardage distances to show for the new green.
The yardages on the screen will automatically update as you walk around the course. However, if you do not walk on a green wearing the watch in GPS mode the watch may not skip to the next hole automatically. Please do this manually following the instructions above.
