USB Overdrive, CaddieSync for Snow Leopard

USB Overdrive is now available in a Snow Leopard/64-bit version. Yippee! I'm waiting for a DVD to finish encoding before I restart.

Compare this with CaddieSync, the application you need to use to synchronize your "SkyCaddie"1 - which still is not available for Snow Leopard. I emailed support and was basically told "Apple just released Snow Leopard and our engineers have only spent two weeks with it."

I replied and pointed out that, as one of two main operating systems that they support, you'd think they'd have used the developer seeds or something. Their reply can be summed up as "uhhhhhh." And the last time I tried to run their installer, it asked me for Rosetta2. C'mon, people. They've rendered my SkyCaddie useless as I can't change it for courses I'm traveling to - which is the only time I use the thing anyway.

Footnotes

  1. A golf GPS device that tells you how far away a green, a bunker, a pond, etc. is.
  2. I have no plans to install Rosetta. Ever.

  1. I spoke with SkyGolf this morning and they wanted to take remote control of my Mac (figure the odds on this) so they could make some "adjustments" to make my Mac work with my SkyCaddie in the interim while they're still working on a Snow Leopard version of CaddieSync. SkyGolf is one of the poorest at customer support that I know of...but we don't have any options other than wait šŸ™

    Wow. I think I'm going to ask for a free year's subscription if they keep this stuff up.

  3. You could ask...but they're so arrogant at SkyGolf they probably wouldn't even answer you. I think if enough comments about their inability to support the Mac community with this Snow Leopard issue were to surface on all the major blogs...it might help. The only thing they understand is $$$...or the loss of it.
