It offers an better user experience, whilst retaining the features, and low price that made the 1500 so popular. Coming in at $99 it allows you to know the yardages to the green, without burning a hole in your pocket.

Izzo Swami 3000 – Out Of The Box And Onto The Course

One of the best features of the Izzo Swami 3000 is how simple and straightforward it is to use. There is nothing complicated about it, and you don’t need to spend hours with it attached to your computer.

Once you get it, take it out of the box, charge it up and you’re ready to go. It really is that simple.

As you would expect from a golf gps under $100 it doesn’t have a ton of features, but will identify the course you are on and give you yardages to the front, middle and back of the green.

These yardages are constantly updated as you move, and are accurate from where you are (perfect for those times when you’re not actually playing from the fairway and can’t get a yardage from an on-course marker).

The Izzo Swami 3000 is small (3.75 by 2 by 1 inches)and light enough to sit comfortably in your pocket. You can also attach it to your golf cart or bag, and there is a belt clip available to purchase seperately.

IZZO Swamin golf gps review - IZZO Swami 3000It’s a good idea to switch your unit on 10 minutes or so before starting your round. It automatically locates the golf course you are on, but on occasions it can take a few minutes to locate satellites.

NOTE: This is not unique to this unit – all gps systems can have a delay locking on to satellites occasionally. It’s always good practice to switch on earlier than needed, so you’re good to go on the first tee.

Izzo Swami 3000 Golf GPS User Reviews

“I am very happy with the Swami 3000 gps. It is very easy to use and works very well. I am a higher handicap golfer (18 handicap). This unit may not be as accurate as some others but for my use it is fine. I got this mainly for those shots off the fairways where there are usually no yardage markers. It also cuts down on the time spent looking for yardage markers on the fairway.”

“Went out to the nearest golf course, turned it on and 60 seconds later, I had the name of the golf course and the number 1 hole on the screen. As I advanced after every shot, the Swami 3000 gave me a precise readout of the distance to the pin. I used the FCB (Front, Center, Back) button and it adjusted for the pin location. I really enjoyed this little tool. It is exactly what every golfer needs, knowing your distance to select the right club. I looked at other devices, but I found them to be too expensive with too much fanfare. The Swami worked right out of the box. No dowloading and no membership fees required.”

“Does what it says it will do. First time I took it on my course it worked great. Checked the yardages shown by the Swami 3000 with those in the fairways…200 yds., 150 yds., and 100 yds from the middle of the greens and it was spot on accurate. It is a very basic GPS but it gives distances to the front, middle, and back of each green from even less than 100 yds. and that is all I need. I have had it for about two months and am pleased with it. For the price, I think it is a fine product.”

Izzo Swami 3000 Summary

For less than $100 this gps unit does what you would expect, but given the improvements over the previous model, particularly having 29,000 courses pre-loaded, the Swami 3000 becomes even more attractive.

If you’re looking for a an easy-to-use device for distances to the green then you should take a close look at this. You don’t have to break the bank to lower your score with the help of the Izzo Swami 3000.
