A review of the Snooper S430 GPS Shotsaver

Snooper S430 GPS Shotsaver
Golf Monthly Verdict

The screen is huge on this device, which makes it extremely clear but does mean the unit will not fit into your pocket. The Snooper S430 GPS Shotsaver design is easy to use and the battery life is impressive. There are no overhead maps but plenty of hazards are featured onscreen.
