2-year life makes expensive

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, VA Written on October 14, 2010
Until it stopped working a few weeks ago, I would have rated the 500 a straight "5". Now it will not measure more than about 60 yds. At about $250, that's pretty pricey. Reading other reviews, Nikon not standing behind this flawed product.
Pros: compact, easy to use.
Cons: no longer measures more than 60 yds....
Would recommend: No

Good for 1 year

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 24, 2008
This worked great for about a year. I have a skycaddie and used this more often as it was less finicky but now it will not read anything over about 60-70 yards. Changed battery with no change. Buy something more reliable.
Pros: Very easy to use. Quick. No need for satellite coverage
Cons: Does not read yardage beyond 60 yards now....
Would recommend: No

Best at any price

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on July 17, 2008
On third year of use and no problems. Two playing partners sold their useless Busnells and bought a Nikon G like mine. Anoter sold his GPS. It is that good, accurate, simply, and quick to use. It will cut stokes off from around the green by knowing excatly what club to hit without guessing. Don't buy a new driver, buy a Nikon G.
Pros: Small, light and easy to get range as far as 240 yards out.
Cons: Maybe 8 power so I can also use it to scope out the beer cart gals....
Would recommend: Yes

Great until not

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on June 24, 2008
Worked as advertised. Problem is after about 2 years it will not catch a yardage > 90 yards. Note I have not dropped the thing. I called Nikon they said it generally cost $150-200 to fix. Surfing others comments I see someone else has a similar problem with a Nikon 440 with a similar estimate to fix. I would not purchase Nikon range finders.
Pros: Worked fine until it stopped catching distances > 100 yards
Cons: Even brand new it was difficult to hit yardages outside of 160 yards...
Would recommend: No

Outstanding Range Finder

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, OR Written on August 20, 2007
Works like a charm. I can get ranges to the green, trees, water, sand traps or places in fhe fairway where I need to know the range. Doesn't have to have the course loaded in, works everywhere. I had a GPS and slod it after I got this. Works much better for my golf game.
Pros: Easy to use, accurate, gives range to anything
Cons: Need a steadt hand for long ranges (200+ yds), but I can be done...
Would recommend: Yes

Never more a round of golf without my LaserCaddy

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 30, 2007
As in my review Titel: I will never more play a round of golf without my LaserCaddy 500G Golf Rangefinder 8351. It's even easy to "shoot" at the flag when it's pretty dark. Simply Super! And hey, it got really wet one day of all rain, but my LaserCaddy didn't mind.
Pros: Extremely easy and quick to use.
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

NIkon Laser Caddy 500G

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on July 26, 2007
Overall the Nikon Laser Caddy works
excellent. At first a little difficult
to hold steady, but once you learn how
to site and click, pretty easy and fun.
Pretty accurate.
Pros: easy to use, and handle, accurate
Cons: sometimes a little difficult to site crosshairs and hold steady...
Would recommend: Yes
