Review Summary:

Bushnell never disappoints when it comes to the manufacture of golf GPS, and this is one of the reasons why I tried out the Neo iON. It builds on the success of the Neo XS, and although it does not have any new outstanding features, everything seems to work better than its predecessors. The battery life is very impressive, and you can be sure that it will last for three rounds.

Bushnell never disappoints when it comes to the manufacture of golf GPS, and this is one of the reasons why I tried out the Neo iON. It builds on the success of the Neo XS, and although it does not have any new outstanding features, everything seems to work better than its predecessors. The battery life is very impressive, and you can be sure that it will last for three rounds. Another thing that is amazing about it is the short measurement feature because at the press of a single button you can be able to tell how far you hit the ball.
