Voice integrated electronics are slowly making their way to golf. As many players are opting for  GPS  units to help them navigate the golf course, an interactive voice enabled  GPS  has a spot as less caddies become available or expensive.


 Izzo gives golfers the option to have a voice companion anytime on the course with the Swami Voice Clip. The Swami Voice Clip is a display style GPS unit that can provide distance and much more for rounds at over 38,000 courses.

Key Features

The Swami Voice Clip is a portable display GPS that can provide golfers distances to the front, middle, and backs of greens.

The Voice Clip is lightweight enough to clip on belts, hats, and golf bags without getting in the way.

The Swami Voice Clip provides verbal distances when prompted so you never even have to look at the GPS while you stay focused on golf.

The Izzo Golf Swami Clip-On GPS is a compact and easy-to-use device that provides accurate distance measurements for golfers on the course. It’s designed for golfers who are looking for a hassle-free GPS device that’s simple to operate and offers reliable distance measurements. 


Despite some reported technical issues, such as difficulty in acquiring satellite signals, many users found the device easy to use and appreciated its cost-effectiveness. One thing I appreciate about this GPS is its efficient battery life. You won’t have to worry about it dying on you in the middle of a game. 


But if you want to maximize its performance, I’ve got a few tips for you. Just follow these and you’ll be good to go.


Design and Technology

Izzo Golf delivers total versatility with the Swami Voice Clip. The Voice Clip is a water resistant GPS hybrid that gives golfers both visual and verbal distances to the front, middle, and backs of greens. Each Swami Voice comes preloaded with a growing list of 38,000 courses. The Swami Voice also has an included scorecard feature that can help you track your scores as you play.

PROS

  • Verbal distances obtained from the Swami Voice Clip make the GPS unit more accessible at all times.
  • The ability to attach this small unit almost anywhere makes it more appealing no matter how you play golf most often.

CONS

  • Downloading courses can take an extended amount of time depending on where you are located.
  • The Swami Voice Clip would become even more outstanding with an integrated touchscreen.
  • A more standard style charger attachment would be nice for golfers looking to travel with their Voice GPS unit.

Our Experience

The Swami Voice Clip is one of the smallest profile GPS units we have ever tested. The ability of the Swami Voice to practically disappear is very appealing to golfers that want to remain focused on their game as they practice and play. The verbal distances provided by the Voice Clip GPS is an added bonus that makes it even easier to plot your way around a course.
