Play Golf:
Search for My Course
Course Selection - The GolfLogix application gives you immediate
wireless access to more than 25,000+ golf courses mapped around the
world so there isn’t any syncing or loading with a computer.
There are two ways to search for a golf course, either by your current
location or an optimized search through our entire golf course list.
My Current Location - Pressing this option will show you the closest
courses sorted by your current location. Select a course from the list to
download and start playing golf.
Course List - Pressing this option will allow you to sort through the
entire GolfLogix database of golf courses. Select a Country, then a
State/Province, then look at all of the golf courses in a City or type in
course names to filter the results. Select a course from the final list to
download and start playing golf.
10
Scoring and Stat-Tracking Options - This screen will show before you start your round. Pressing ‘Yes’ will allow you
to keep your score and track your stats during this round. The ‘Enter My Stats and Score’ screen will automatically

Play Golf:
Hazard-Layups Screen
Hazard-Layups Screens - These screens display all of the hazards,
layups, and the green center yardages on Par 4 and Par 5 holes.
The ‘To Green Center’ line will remain on the top of this screen at
all times. Please note: GPS calculates a straight line distance from
where you are standing to the center of the green whereas tee box
plates read down the center of the fairway to pivot points on the
hole and then to the center of the green. Therefore, GPS
distances and tee box plates will never match up on Par 4 and Par
5 tee boxes.
When your location gets within 150 yards of a hazard-layup point,
that hazard-layup will automatically disappear from the list and
the remaining hazard-layups on the hole will move up the screen.
The remaining hazard-layups can always be seen by scrolling the
track ball down from the last showing hazard-layups line.
When you are within 200 yards of the center of the green, this screen will change to a Green Screen.

view other targets on your existing holes or to move to a different
hole.
