The Caddie II uses AA batteries and will also accommodate rechargeable AA batteries which can be a big plus vs. other units that require an expensive replacement of the built in rechargeable battery.
The Map Hole feature now permits a player to mark new custom points while playing a hole. This is a time saving and very convenient feature to have. The one touch, shot distance feature is included on the main display where previously it required a three-step process. Greenside bunker, hazards and other distances are included in downloads. Eight user added custom points are available in addition to the downloaded information. Having this feature allows a golfer to customize each hole based on what distances are important to know when playing each hole.
