A Closer Look at the Bushnell Phantom 2 Feature Upgrades


The original Bushnell Phantom compact golf GPS made getting distances to the green easy and convenient. With several feature upgrades, Bushnell Golf has significantly increased that favorable user experience with the Phantom 2 small handheld GPS.

For an easier read, the Bushnell Phantom 2 has a larger display and an increased font size. You'll be able to see yardage to the middle, front, and back of the green at a glance.

This lightweight, compact golf GPS is always within reach. The size makes it easy to toss in a bag or stick to any metal surface. And the BITE magnet on the Phantom 2 GPS is stronger, allowing it to stay put as it rides along on your cart, your clubs, or your belt buckle.


The Bushnell Phantom 2 is truly a GPS made for the golf cart. It has a stronger BITE magnet mount that can hang tough while you roam the course.

Twice the battery life is another sweet upgrade of the Phantom 2. You get up to 18 hours—enough for 4 rounds of golf. But let's say you show up to the course and forgot to charge your golf GPS ... the Bushnell Phantom 2 compact GPS can now function while charging. Most golf carts come with a USB port—just plug in and charge and play away!


Choose your club with confidence when you know the distance to the front, middle, and back of the green. The Bushnell Phantom 2 golf GPS now offers GreenView with moveable pin placement. Simply cycle through the different pin locations and select to get a more precise distance to the flag.

Along with GreenView, the Phantom 2 now offers Dynamic Green Mapping. With this feature, your front and back distances are based on your line of play.

As with all Bushnell GPS devices, the Phantom 2 GPS handheld is preloaded with maps of golf courses. This version now has over 2,000 more, providing you with over 38,000 preloaded courses worldwide!


The Phantom 2 GPS comes with the Bushnell Golf app, allowing you to unlock useful yardage information, track and store your rounds and statistics, and execute course updates wirelessly.

How the Bushnell Phantom 2 Golf Cart GPS Works

The Bushnell Phantom 2 golf GPS comes ready to use right out of the box. It's preloaded with over 38,000 golf courses and is Bluetooth enabled to allow you to automatically update courses via the Bushnell Golf app.

When you put the Phantom 2 into Golf Mode, the auto course recognition pulls up a list of nearby courses. Then you simply select your course. Auto hole advance automatically advances you from hole-to-hole without having to press any buttons.

Shot Distance Calculator shows you how far you hit as you play.

There are 3 buttons on the left side of the Phantom 2 and 1 button on the right, which is the power button. The top button on the left is the up button for scrolling up the menu; the bottom button is for scrolling down; the middle button is the select button—cycles screens in Golf Mode and selects menu options.

The largest number in the middle of the display is distance to the center of the green. The numbers below are front distance (left) and back distance (right). The middle top number next to the flag (you guessed it) is the hole number. The one on the left is the par for the current hole, and to the right is your total score for the round. Smooth and easy operation!

Finally, you can choose from 4 different colors when purchasing your Bushnell Phantom 2 compact golf GPS: Black, Bright Royal Blue, Gray Camo, or Neon Orange.
