    Agree, however, this forum is not an official Skytrak offering and Seth is under NO obligation to participate. Considering he is willing to be available as a resource, we should, at least, maintain a certain level of professionalism. Similarly, skytrak (and Seth) have likely benefitted from this forum. Perhaps will be the first to know of the next move? Just got an email that E6 connect has a labor day special. Maybe trugolf and skytrak will make a joint announcement soon.

    Seth rocks and skytrak rules. My golf game improved immensely with skytrak range and skypro.
    my outdoor game has never been more consistent.
    my only gripe is that this tech wasnt available when i was a kid !

    trumb1mj Yeah, that was a bit harsh.... but you know that.

    SkyTrak, however, is a commercial and for-profit organization and as such is subject to an appropriate level criticism. And, it's hard to argue against that it's been a while since there has been much hardware innovation in this part of the market, and the commercial orgs at the center of our universe have been relatively quiet lately.

    Thank you SkeetShooter! Wow...that's powerful stuff. Now I gotta wonder: Does the USA care? And, why does Facebook allow scamming ads, such as camper trailer for $139 with free shipping, or a pellet feed smoker, three levels, temp controls for $78. And if you check out one of these ads, your feed becomes infested with all the other scam ads.

    I think it was my comment: "It doesn’t take a competent dev team a year to become gdpr compliant while working on nothing else. So either Seth is lying to us on what’s going on, they have no devs or they have completely incompetent leadership on the dev team."

    I never called them incompetent I just said it was one of those 3 things. My guess is there is an X factor we don't know about.

    I feel bad for phrasing it like this--my apologies Seth.

    Where is the "abuse" a couple of you have mentioned? I've looked a couple of times but can't find it.

    GDPR is the Global Data Protection Regulation. As for some of the blockbuster judgements that have been levied so far:

    Serious deal if you get caught for infractions

    Nice rant SkeetShooter! What the heck is GDPR? Privacy related? It's been twenty years of continuous new policy and programming: the turn of the century, SAP implementation (that was all hopeless non-working not understandable BS until management finally buckled and hired higher level SAP consultants at $600/hr), network security (actually requires 24/7 human monitoring to back up the security programs against attacks), network security again for the electric and gas utility systems (plus hardened anti-terror housing and remote backup), what's next?, was it Sarbanes-Oxley? Then...what? LOL

    I agree Celeras... Seems like mostly one guy... The whole gripe or in my opinion, lack of understanding around GDPR compliance, is such a waste of time to discuss. My company, a pretty large NGO, has several lawyers, outside council, internal compliance review committees, data specialists, vendors, and a slew of other people just in the U.S. portion of our organization, working on GDPR compliance for our supporters. We have been working through it for over a year and are just starting to get to the point where we have a fully executed MoU with internal and external tollgates to be in compliance.

    We are spending so much time on this because the penalties are so severe for non-compliance, that if we were ever caught, even if it was something so minutely overlooked, we could be fined millions. That's not acceptable for us and hits our bottom line, which is ultimately humanitarian aid for people around the world.

    So for those few that don't understand why SkyTrak is taking their time and delaying product updates, you likely do not understand the risk that non-compliance of GDPR standards have, and you don't understand their corporate structure or staffing. Its very easy for anyone on the outside to make comments that this is "unacceptable" and I deserve better, and all that crap... If you feel that way, then maybe you should sell your product and purchase something else.

    Sorry rant over. I just don't like it when people think they are entitled as a consumer to all these things. I don't think anywhere it said that Skytrak would continuously provide you with updates on the product, or that they would even dedicate one of their staff members to the digital abuse and negativity that is being spewed here and other forums.

    OK, rant really over now.

    It honestly seems like it's just one guy over and over again, so I wouldn't sweat it so much. I'm just hoping the ball speed fix is in by winter when I can't play actual golf 🤞🤞

    One thing I'll never understand is why the security updates needed to stop all other bug fixes and features? A well staffed engineering team could easily be working through those things while others, for example, are finishing off adjustments for ball speed fixes (that were in robotics testing 7 months ago). Why was GDPR so tied to the graphics updates that were part of 3.4? The lack of updates just seems so deliberate it forces your customers to be suspicious.

    It's fair for me to have high expectations for a company I've given thousands of dollars to.

    I read what Seth was saying--there were significant delays due to GDPR requirements and security concerns. Those sort of things need addressing and are the cost of doing business. I totally understand that.

    Now that those changes have gone well beyond a reasonable timeframe, the story has changed. There is an unknown factor that Seth cannot share with us. SkyTrak doesn't want to share this information and they don't feel they owe that to their customers--that's a business decision.

    At this point it's fair to assume there is something much larger at play but pestering Seth is not the right way to go about getting information--sorry, Seth.

    Unfortunately you will never please everyone and sometimes you just have to ignore certain people since no matter what you say they will refuse to listen or believe you anyway.
