Review Summary:

If there is one thing, I know as a golfer is that you do not always have to spend a lot of money to get a quality golf GPS. This mentality is what drove me to buy the Bushnell Neo+, and I do not regret this decision. It is a very simple device, but it has all the essential features of a GPS including Shot Tracking and Auto Advance. It also has thousands of preloaded courses but what I like most about it is its ease of use and the fact that you can use it straight out of the box.
