So far, I have been pretty happy with each GPS app I’ve tried for various tasks; data logging when I bike or run, remembering where my car is, even logging my position when I twitter.  So when a friend of mine called me up for a last second game of golf in the middle of December, which of course I said yes, I thought this would be good chance to try out a few apps I’ve downloaded for golfing.  Boy, FAIL city, here I come.


First app I tried was GolfTraxx.  When I first downloaded it, it looked like a good app. You type in you zipcode, a set of courses show up, and then you hit start.  Great!  I’m on the first tee, and this is what I see.
