GolfTraxx is a highly accurate Golf GPS product to help improve your on-course shot decisions and course management. By knowing the yardages to the important green complex locations as well as an ideal tee target based on local knowledge, your round will be shorter, your score lower and your enjoyment of the game increased. Many GolfTraxx courses have user-contributed extras that include the distance to Reach and Carry extras like bunkers, lakes and streams. All courses in GolfTraxx can utilize an easy-to-use scorecard for up to four golfers, which includes both total strokes and number of putts.

CORRECTION: Best option considering capabilities and price (I meant Greenfinder not Rangefinder)

:
I spent quite a bit of time to review the golf applications for iphone. The top 3 contenders to me are Greenfinder, ViewTi G and Golftraxx. I selected and installed Golftraxx over the others and the following are the reasons why:
1. Golftraxx is free while Greenfinder and ViewTi G are $35 each.
2. Golftraxx provides distances from tee to green including front, center and back of the green in addition to fairway bunkers and hazzards. Greenfinder provides the same with additional capability of marking your shot to get a distance (ex: your drive). ViewTi G however, does not provide distances for fairway bunkers & hazzards, instead, it gives you the aerial view of the green allowing you to mark a spot on the green to get a distance for your approach shot.
3. Golftraxx and ViewTi G include a scorecard but Greenfinder does not.
4. Greenfinder and ViewTi G will map your courses for you if you request them. However, Golftraxx provides the instructions to map the courses yourself. I mapped three courses I play often. It is pretty simple and takes an hour per course (two hours if you do the fairways and bunkers). I sent them the maps and they included in the database within three days during the holidays. I downloaded the maps and played a round. It worked liked a charm. If everyone maps couple of courses in their area, the number of courses for Golftraxx can proliferate exponentially in a short period of time.
Conclusion: All three apps basically do the same thing with each having a unique capabilitiy that differentiates them. I picked Golftraxx because it gives me all the details I need and it is free. I will wait and pay for an app that can provide tee to green distances, fairway bunkers and hazzards, fly-over for the entire hole not just the green while showing the distances for bunkers and hazzards just like uPro device and a flexible scorecard. Hope this was helpfull.

Fast Service

:
I already added a review on the app but I wanted to comment on my service experience over this past weekend. My foursome changed venues at last minute so I was rushed to map the new course that we were playing the following day. I sent GolfTraxx the KML file around 5:00pm on Friday evening and was on the course at 9:00am on the next morning when I got an email that the course had been loaded! That was exceptional given that it was the weekend and I had requested it less than 12 hours before. I don't expect that ot be the normal turn around but I wanted to give the GolfTraxx team credit for their hussle.

One UI request I would suggest is when deleting courses, please verify the delete request as it is too easy to accidentally delete a course adjacent to the one desired to delete. Or maybe add a course update function that could check if any courses loaded have newer versions available for download. It bites to accidentally delete the wrong course and then have to look up the zip to add it (that goes back to my course searching requests...)

All in all I am very happy with the App and the service provided.
