Will not always scan and you have to reset the app. Have a lot of issues scanning the tags when my phone is in my pocket (the material is not thick, very light weight shorts). Have to keep on taking the phone out of my pocket to scan the club. I have placed the phone on a phone holder attached to my buggy but this does not give you a accurate record as the buggy is not always where the ball is located and if you hit a duff shot you have to come back to the buggy the scan the club again. The same applies if you are putting (more than one putt). The app keeps on locking up and requires it to be reset or when you go to scan the next club you discover that the reader is not working properly and have to reset. The app sometimes records two shots for the one scan.
I know this sounds like it may relate to old updates on the app or phone, but I ensure that everything is up to date before each game. Should have spent the money and gone with what I know works.
If you forget to tap a shot you can edit later. They provide good data and are very simple to use.
There have been some complaints of durability, but they seem quite sturdy to me. The GPS accuracy comes from your phone so don't blame the Golf Pad system.
But having only tried to use them on 3 occasions to-date, I am still working through the phone notification and screen blackout setting to make the app pinning work properly.
Recommend anyone wanting to improve there game and have their club striking distance reordered.
These are a must Buy, And with Cheapest Subscription i have seen @ $20 a years.

It takes some discipline to use the tags and not forget any shots, but I built that into my shot routine. Activating the tags on the phone might seem a bit erratic at first, but once you get the hang of it it works quite well.
For those who have problems fitting the tags without ruining the threads (I've been there also) one tip. put a bit of soap on the thread before you screw them in. Works perfectly also for the first generation tags.
1. Occasionally it starts recording shots all over the score card, and unless you are watching the phone you miss it and then have a mess to clean up.
2. I have had these less than a month, already two have broken off the base. I found one and reglued it back on, the other got lost on the course. They give you a couple of extras, but at this rate, with only 2 weeks of golfing gone and 2 breaking off, they won't last the year. I emailed them for advice, or a way to help baby them (should I tape them down for instance), but they never responded to my query.
When it works it is great. They seem to work great for the first few holes, but then the performance degrades (slower to read the NFC in the app, moves holes mid hole, etc.) My guess is there is some sort of memory leak in the app (I am using Android), which this behavior would suggest considering it is designed to be running for 4-5 hours, which is difficult for apps.
It is also mildly annoying that if you get a call or text while the app is running it is almost impossible to get it, the app does everything it can to avoid letting you move to another app, even if it is to answer a call. Maybe they are just trying to protect my golf time.
I would give it 5 stars if they didn't break off so easy and if the app was more reliable.
ok, the day I put out the review I get an email from them saying they will replace the two broken tags no problem. They have a 90 day warranty for this type of thing they say and those tags must have just had some bad glue. I will continue with using them and hope the app matures. Interested to see how the golfpad link works. I do dig the app and the ease of recording data.
Accuracy - This is pretty close in relation to a rangefinder, it was within a couple of yards. I'm not sure about the data though. There have been times that a putt registers as 12 yards when in reality it might be closer to 12 feet. I can't really blame this system for that though as it's just relying on the GPS from the phone's platform.
Ease of Use - This isn't a difficult system to use, but it does have a little bit of a learning curve and it's difficult to "test" it, test the functions and build your process when not in a real round. Once you get it set up and figured out, it's actually rather easy to use and why I rated 4 stars instead of 3.
Value for money - I think for the stat tracking systems I've seen advertised, this overall isn't bad as far as cost, metrics, dashboard and I've read the customer service is great.
One thing I do think is nice, was that a tag could be used to count Penalty strokes and/or set the Flag, so I cut the threads off of one and superglued it to the back of a ball mark repair tool and am able to use it for both. This works well and I'm able to keep that in my pocket.
I am a bit concerned about the quality considering others have mentioned them breaking after only 2-3 rounds, so I did take some precautions. So far I see zero signs of wear/tear on them after 2.5 rounds. I used the golf club tubes (yeah...), a cheap thin yoga mat, and some balloons; Cut the yoga mat into small pieces, filled the non-inflated balloons about 3/4 of the way with the pieces, then tied them so that the empty space was just air. Shoved and taped these into the bottoms of the tubes, now when the clubs slide down it hits a soft bottom and doesn't seem to be damaging them at all.
With everything said, I'm not sure if I'm going to stick with these, or go with the Arccos grips if I'm in the market for another stat tracking system in the near future. Seems they have figured out not having to tap as well as durability however the cost is quite a bit steeper at $100/year subscription cost. We'll see about that.
I've only play 3 rounds so far and will update this review once I get more stick time with them.
