Sony Ericsson P990, M600, W950, & P1i Smartphone (Eagle Value/OTA) Tour

This IntelliGolf® Quick Start Tour will show you how easy it is to score a round of golf on your Sony Ericsson smartphone using the IntelliGolf Eagle Value/OTA edition software. The screen shots below are from a Sony Ericsson P-series smartphone. While these screens might not look exactly like your screens, the general flow of IntelliGolf will be relatively consistent from phone-to-phone.

Installation Instructions: If you download the Eagle Value edition wirelessly to your smartphone, it should have installed wirelessly for you. If it did not install, please contact your wireless reseller. If you downloaded the Eagle Value edition from an Internet-based (non-wireless) reseller, please save the igeaglejspxxx.jar file to your PC. Then, use Sony Ericsson's "Install Application" utility (PC Suite) to install IntelliGolf onto your smartphone. Note: After downloading the Eagle Value/OTA software to your PC, please verify that the downloaded file ends with the extension .jar. If the .jar extension has been changed to .zip (i.e. during the download process), simply rename the .zip extenstion to .jar and then install it onto your smartphone.

If you would like to enter a player's handicap, you have four choices:

  1. Handicap
    Use this selection to define a player's handicap.
  2. USGA Index
    Use this selection for players that have a USGA Handicap Index. IntelliGolf will compute a course handicap for the golfer using the formula: Course Handicap = Index * slope / 113. IntelliGolf supports a men's and women's slope rating for each tee, so be sure to set the Sex field correctly if you are using this handicap choice.
  3. Average Score
    Use this selection when a player does not have an established handicap but they have some idea of what their "average" score is on this course. IntelliGolf will compute a handicap using the formula: Handicap = Average Score - Course Par.
  4. EGA Index
    Use this selection for players that have a Handicap Index issued by a European golf association. IntelliGolf will compute a course handicap for the golfer using the formula: Course Handicap = Index * slope / 113 + rating - par.
Players Screen.
After you have selected up to 5 players for the round tap on the >> button. For each player in the round you can select the round handicap, which tees the player will be playing, and whether or not to track putts.

Choose Sidegames Screen.

4. Add the Side Games.

If members of your group have agreed to a friendly side game, add games here by tapping on the Add button. If you're playing "just for fun", enter a wager of 0. This screen is also used to edit or delete games already being played.

Choose a wager amount and which golfers are playing. Skins can be scored with or without carryovers, and Nassau can be played with or without presses. Tap on the currency symbol to change what currency you wish to use for wagering.

The handicap strokes for each player are shown to the right of their names. Handicap scoring can be calculated one of four ways on an individual game basis:

  1. Handicap difference
  2. Full handicaps
  3. Handicap values
  4. No handicaps

When using the Handicap difference method, IntelliGolf subtracts the low handicap from all players' handicaps. The Handicap values choice lets you enter a handicap value for each player for just this game.

Hole Screen.

5. Enter Strokes, Putts and Hole Information.

This screen is where you enter the strokes and putts for the players as well as hole yardage, par and handicap information (if you have not already done so). Everything can be entered by tapping on the desired field and then tapping on the numbered buttons at the bottom of the screen.

Entering the scores shown is as easy as tapping on the 5, 1, 4, 2, 5, 2, 7, 2 buttons! A golf tee works great for this if you don't want to pull out the stylus.

On the first hole, tap on the Start button when you tee off. IntelliGolf will automatically keep track of the elapsed time of your round in the upper right corner of the screen.

The dots after the hole score column indicate how many strokes that player gets based on the handicaps for the current sidegame.

If you tap on a player's name, a round scorecard will be shown for the player.

If you tap on the box under the flagstick, it brings up this screen so you can track statistics for your drive, approach shot, chip, and putts.

For drive, approach, and chip shots, you can mark whether your shot hit the fairway/green, or missed. If you missed, you can mark whether the miss was left or right and/or short or long (via the arrows).

GPS Screen

6. IntelliGPS® (Eagle versions only)

IntelliGolf provides the ability to view distances from tee-to-green with GPS accuracy using industry-leading GPS receivers. Just tap on the "satellite icon" at the bottom of the main scoring screen and start viewing IntelliGPS distances immediately. Club selection has never been easier.

GPS Survey Screen
Plus, if your favorite golf course's GPS coordinates aren't uploaded yet, you can use IntelliGolf's handheld/smartphone GPS survey screen (and a GPS receiver) to quickly enter GPS coordinates "during" your round of golf. Or, you can use our Internet-based Course Survey Editor (CSE) to survey your favorite course(s) "before" your round of golf, using Google Earth, from the comfort of your own home). The choice is yours!

For detailed instructions on how to set and GPS-survey your favorite course(s) please click here.

To survey the course you are currently playing using your handheld/smartphone, simply tap on the Record button as you reach the 200, 150, and 100 yard/meter markers, any of three custom fairway points (e.g. creek, sand trap, lake, etc) per hole, and the front, center, and back of the green. IntelliGolf will record these GPS coordinates for you and automatically convert them into distance readings. It's that easy.

GPS Setup Screen
This screen is used to set which Bluetooth GPS reciever will be used to read GPS distance positions. The first time you use this screen you must choose the "Discovery" menu so IntelliGolf can bond with your GPS receiver.

Please see the Bluetooth documentation for your phone. You must turn on Bluetooth communication before starting IntelliGolf, and you may also need to add your Bluetooth GPS receiver to the devices list in your phone's Bluetooth setup screens.
