Customer Question
I have a Voice...

I have a Voice + it seems to have lost its accuracy. i bought it at my Pro shop Bass rocks Golf Club. They "reset" it but it still off. 130yards it recording 142 yards. Is there a calibration I can send it away for? Or just buy a new device? thanks Peter

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your GPS unit? How old is it?

Golf Buddy voice + about four years old.

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

Not sure what the question?

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

I gave it to the pro shop they told me they re set it? But it is not even close
