I use the GolfLogix GPS-8 and considering buying the software for the Storm (used it during the trial).
Just called the guys at golfgps.com. They say development for Android is in the works but no ETA. They are currently working on TP2 software. Anyway, I love the device and software so if any of you with Android are interested in the software, I suggest giving them a call so we can nudge up Android implementation. I do not have a Hero just yet but I am thinking it is on the horizon for me if it can get ActiveSync with Exchange correct. I would hate to be without GPS for golf if I do make the switch.

I think this one costs $8 but it looks pretty nice.

I'm still on BB but am seriously thinking of switching once I can get out of my current phone (about a month). On blackberry I use www_bbgpsgolf_com, which is completely free but it's only for crackberries.

SkyDroid Golf : GPS for Android Phones
I'm actually the developer of SkyDroid. So I wanted to spread the word. We're only charging 99 cents right now for SkyDroid.
We are still building our course list, but we have a tool online where users can map any course and then download it to the app. So we've given people the resources to get GPS for any golf course in the world for 99 cents. We're getting 10-15 new courses a day added to our system by users.
The app gives you distances to the Front, Center and Back of every green as well as distances to features that have been mapped like bunkers, water hazards and target points.
You can also get satellite view of any hole you are playing and get distance to ANY point on the satellite map even if it hasn't been mapped already.
Let me know if you have questions.

Golf GPS app
I recommend GPSCaddy. There's a free trial version and the paid version is a one-off cost of about $20. It's specially designed for Android phones and has great graphics of the hole you're playing. Excellent support too - they'll quickly map your local course if the map's not already available.

Keep an eye on How Far Am I? - GPS Golf Application for Android

I have used a lot of other GPS Golf programs so I am going to list them and a little about each.
BBGPSGolf: The best overall golf gps app I used. It was all text based, free, and the one I used more often then any other while I was using BB's.
GolfLogix: Great graphics, good gps and info, killed my battery and never got through a round even when starting with a full charge on my BB storm 2. I have downloaded the version for android on my eris and have not tried it yet.
Intelligolf: Was my standard app for years on my BB until I started using BBGPSGolf. Great for keeping score and side games. Has GPS but not many course were mapped.
AccelGolf: Used a couple of times and liked it but did not like the rangefinder feature, cool score keeping method though. You tap letters for each shot, D for drive, P for pitch etc..... I am looking forward top trying their 2.0 version wehn it comes out.
GolfCard: Bought it and set it up to use and then the course was not mapped for GPS. Upgraded my eris to 2.1 and it no longer is in the market place....
HowFarAmI: From Justin, the same guy that made BBGPSGolf. Tells you how far you are from the center. Nice but basic. Granted it is free and I am looking forward to what his paid version will have. If it is something like a meld of his two programs then this could be the best.
NRange: Seemed no better than HowFarAmI and looked more cluttered on the screen.
I am looking for a go to program like I had with BBGPSGolf. I do not like range finders if I have to pick where I am on the hole. I like the features of BBGPSGolf and Golf Logix that mapped the entire hole and gave yardages for clearing sand traps etc.... I loved the side games scoring in Intelligolf, had some many games and tracked money etc. Accelgolf is pretty cool and ties stats and scores to webpage.
Overall, I am looking for a strong scoring and gps golf app that does not drain the battery. I like to keep the scores for everyone in our group and loved the desktop version of intelligolf that stored all the scores and calculated handicap etc. I also like the ability to track shots like in Accelgolf, BBGPSGolf and golflogix. I want it all in one solid app. If you know of one that is out there let me know.
Thanks and sorry for rambling on, hope I helped inform and maybe we can trade ideas and get Justin to build the best golf app ever for android......

I would like an app that does GPS and keep score... And I LOVE the ability to edit courses myself like in SkyDroid. When will we be able to keep score in that, Paul?
I'm buying an app soon and would like it to log my progress. It would be great to be able to go back and see where I hit for each shot both on the phone and on the computer... Maybe I need to develop my own if I want all that instead of pestering you
Anyone try any of these? Please let us know.

Just in case anybody happens to come across this and wonders, if you use the GolfLogix app and are coming from a different device, in may case Blackberry, you can transfer you account but make sure you use Droid as new device and not the Eris. From what I can tell so far it worked like a charm.
On another note, Golf Logix app will kick the crap out of your battery big time.

Whats the deal with Apps that use oobgolf. Like GolfCard.
It says 40,000 courses in the description on the Android market. This is so far from the truth. It really only has just over 11,340 mapped. (Courses with GPS Mapping)
I don't care if a course is in your database, I want to know if its mapped...
Any apps that have lots of courses mapped like GolfLogix, but are free and not a battery drain?
