Gof Buddy

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your GPS?

I connected to my computer and downloaded the upates from the website. Everything went fine. It instructed me to reboot. My question is: if I turn it off and turn it back on is that considered a reboot?

Electronics Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 4 months ago

Yes, if you power off the Golf Buddy then power it back on then that is a reboot but you need to make sure that you are actually powering it off and not just pressing the button for a second and it shows a blank screen. To make sure that it reboots by holding down the power button for about 20 seconds.
