HELPFUL SKYCADDIE TIPS • Wait until the SkyCaddie LINX has finished syncing before you disconnect it or power off your computer. • Turn on GPS-enabled modes on your SkyCaddie LINX only when outdoors or on the golf course, with a clear view of the sky. To receive the best GPS accuracy performance, give it an initial five to ten minutes to warm-up before play or activity. Higher GPS Signal strength provides higher accuracy. • To maintain optimal GPS accuracy, make sure the SkyCaddie LINX always has a clear view of the sky when using a GPS mode. • After you exit a GPS-enabled mode, the GPS will turn off automatically, so you’ll never have to be concerned about doing so. • Do not put the SkyCaddie LINX in your pocket, or otherwise obscure SkyCaddie’s view of the sky, when using a GPS mode to assure optimal performance. • Fully charge the battery before each round of Golf or Odometer use. • Do not expose the SkyCaddie LINX to extreme temperatures or to water. 13 CUSTOMER SUPPORT SkyGolf is committed to providing the highest level of customer support.
