See Difference Between Golf Buddy World Platinum vs. Golf Buddy World 

The verdict is in. From a features and functions perspective the Golf Buddy World Platinum and the Golf Buddy World have both physical differences and a few different statistical analysis features. The GB World Platinum is able to track scores of up to 4 players while providing stats and analysis of the owner. The GB World can only keep track of your score. The World Platinum is also able to record extra information such as fairway hit percentage and putting averages. The physical difference comes with the newer World unit being slightly smaller, thinner, and lighter. You will also notice that the World has more buttons than the Platinum. This is probably no big deal unless you have a preference for buttons as opposed to using the touch screen for features and functions. Let's take a look at a side by side comparison of the sizes and specifications.

Don't worry about finding the BEST Price. We continually monitor the top retailers for the best golf deals. You will find links for the current best prices on the Golf Buddy GPS units.
