Golf GPS app for displaying yardage
We are creating an application for golfers that tells you the yardage from your current location to your hole location. Essentially a range finder, but much cheaper!!
Currently there are over 4000 golf courses our database and we are still growing.
Check to see if your course is in our database.
GolfMapz.com iPhone Golf GPS Caddie || Golf GPS System || Golf Mapping
We are looking to release in the next few weeks.
Keep an eye out on the site.

(i.e., what's your value-add that makes your app worth paying for?
(I'm assuming it will have some cost, since you mention "much cheaper" rather than "absolutely free"))

I suppose that's the difference - the existing data you have.
I'll be interested to see where your price point falls for both the introductory and regular price.
And as an aside, that was more of a devil's advocate question than a slam against your company/product.

I saw a demo of a similar iphone application earlier in the year at the palos cc trade show, it was sick, bunch of really nice features. I believe it was called something like icaddie. You will do very well with this if your app is anything close to that. Good Luck!

I downloaded this app to my Iphone Thurs and played a course on Fri. It worked as advertised. All I was looking for was a distance to the green. Beats walking around looking for a sprinkler head. Very generic but then again I was playing a familiar course. Chose this one because the "how to" make a new course on the other app was way to intense. I submitted a course to upload and hopefully I did it correctly -- We'll find out tomorrow. Can't wait for the "other" nice to have such as hazards, actual pic of the fairway, etc. Was told its coming so I'm in a wait and see. Problem is I already paid for this one.
4 stars and when I see the rest, I'll upgrade when they upgrade.

I found that GolfShot GPS is the best all-round golfers' companion. It gives you accurate yardages to FOG, BOG, bunkers, hazards, lay-up yardages, etc, lets you see the hole in satellite view, keeps your and opponents scorecards and emails them to you at the end of the round, and even keeps track of all your stats to show you what to improve upon. This application is unbelievably accurate, faster than SkyCaddy and gives more info than an "analog" RangeFinder.

Sureshot on iPhone
I had the original stand alone unit and was impressed with it until i dropped it from 2 feet and it refused to work. Cost to fix £250.00 or buy a new unit for £200.00. Strange that!
Got the app on my iPhone for a whole £20.00 and it is the nuts. Does everything it says it does and even emails you the scorecard when it's finished. How neat is that. Get it, you will NOT be disappointed and NO annual charge. I have never ever had a problem with this app.
Even works abroad but beware it is very expensive on your phone bill as it uses a lot of MB.
Saves you shots and will help reduce your handicap without fail.
Trust me I am a golf geek!!

Re: Golf GPS app for displaying yardage
Cool reading your comments, I see the last one was posted a while back !
I was looking around the web for gps golf apps, and came across this forum, for all of you out there, there is a new app that I ran into called fun golf gps, the only app that has all the courses in 3D ! I used to play with Golf shot, but I promise you when you try this app, there is no going back !!
