Customer Question
My golf club, Bonnie...

My golf club, Bonnie Doon in Sydney Australia redesigned the course, and my golf buddy no longer functions as a GPS. I asked the management of the club to reload the necessary information on to my device, but they said that they do not deal with Garmin, and that I would need to deal with the company itself. Could you possibly help me?

Technician's Assistant: What is the exact model of your Garmin? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

The model number is ***** written on the back of the watch is Garmin approach S1, and my estimate of when I purchased it, is about two years ago.

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up?

The only thing that happened is that they redesigned the course over a period of about 18 months.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

The only troubleshooting that I have tried is to take the watch to the pro shop in the club and ask them if they could reload the new information. They said that they could do this for Bushnell GPS devices, but for some reason not Garmin.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the GPS Expert to know before I connect you?

No, I can add nothing to that story.
