SkyGolf users can set up the SkyCaddie Rangefinder GPS system by installing the CaddieSync Express program from SkyGolf.com on their computer. Prior to installing this program, the SkyCaddie device should not be connected to the computer as it can cause issues with installation or updating. Once the user has the CaddieSync Express program on his computer, he can proceed to click the SYNC button found in SkyGolf.com to install or update software and data in his SkyCaddie Rangefinder GPS device.
Users can know when their SkyCaddie requires updating by checking to see if a blue sync button is displayed on their tool. The SkyGolf.com sync option connects the user's SkyCaddie with his personal SkyGolf account. The SkyCaddie can store golfing data on the user's account, such as an individual round of golf.
SkyGolf is the developer and retailer of SkyCaddie. The company specializes in creating positioning and technology products for golfers to help enhance their playing experience. The SkyCaddie device was developed following a design that attempts to mimic the yardage book used by a professional caddie during a PGA Tour event. As of 2015, the device is the official rangefinder tool that is used by multiple PGAs around the world, such as the PGA of America, the PGAs of Great Britain and the Canadian PGA.
