IntelliGolf Installation Instructions

To install the IntelliGolf software on your PC and Nokia-based smartphone, please select your product (below) and then follow the product's instruction instructions. You'll be ready to golf in minutes!

For the IntelliGolf Eagle and Birdie editions to install and synchronize properly you need to have Nokia's PC Suite version 7.1.26.x (or higher) or Nokia's Ovi PC Suite version 2.0 (or higher) software installed on your PC. However, we highly recommend downloading and installing Nokia's latest PC Suite or Ovi Suite software. To find out more about this please click here.

IMPORTANT: Before starting the IntelliGolf software installation process (listed below) on Nokia-based smartphones, please make sure to "EXIT" (i.e. not simply Close) the PC Suite or Ovi Suite software. Please make sure that neither Suite is active/listed in the Windows tray (lower right corner on PC - right click, then Exit). IntelliGolf will call the Nokia Suites as needed during the installation process :-).

Eagle and Eagle Upgrade editions - The Eagle edition software is a virtual bundle of the Birdie edition and Eagle GPS Option software. First, double-click on the igbirdiexxx.msi file. That will install the IntelliGolf Birdie edition's desktop software, smartphone software, and synchronization software to your PC. When you are ask if you want to install the Birdie edition's handset software onto your smartphone, please leave the box "unchecked" (i.e. No). Second, double-click on the igeagleoxxx.msi file. That will install the Eagle GPS Option's smartphone software onto your smartphone. When you are ask if you want to install the Eagle edition's handset software onto your smartphone, please leave the box "checked" (i.e. Yes) and following the remaining instructions. Have a Great Round!

   Note 1: If you will be loading the IntelliGolf Eagle edition software onto a Nokia-based smartphone that includes an embedded GPS chip in it (e.g. Nokia N95) please click here for further set-up instructions.
   Note 2: If you will be connecting/using a Bluetooth-based GPS receiver with the IntelliGolf Eagle edition software and your Nokia-based smartphone, please click here for general set-up instructions.

Birdie and Birdie Upgrade editions (+ Eagle GPS Option) - First, double-click on the igbirdiexxx.msi file. That will install the IntelliGolf desktop software, handheld/smartphone software, and synchronization software. Note: If you also purchased the Eagle GPS Option (add-on) software, double-click on the igeagleoxxx.msi file next. That will install the Eagle GPS Option's GPS and Bluetooth smartphone software. Next, please see Note 1 or 2 (above) in the Eagle edition section. Have a Great Round!

Eagle Value/OTA edition - 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, then please save the igeaglenkxxx.jar file to your PC. Then, use Nokia's "Install Application" utility (PC Suite) to install IntelliGolf onto your smartphone. Or, you may download the IntelliGolf igeaglenkxxx.jar file directly to your smartphone and use the File Manager (Menu, Tools (or Office), File Manager) utility on your smartphone to install IntelliGolf onto it. Note: After downloading the Eagle 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.

User Instructions

TIP: On most Nokia smartphones, the middle "Navigation Button" or the "Touch Screen" is used to select pull-down menus (e.g. Tees v) and selection boxes (e.g. [Player Name]) in the IntelliGolf software. However, on some Nokia smartphones these items are selected using the "Space Bar" key and the "Backspace" button.

TIP: On most Nokia smartphones, the "screen width" and the "numeric keypad mapping" has been automatically done for you. However, on some of the latest smartphones this has to be done manually (only the first time) using IntelliGolf's advanced "Preferences" settings. If IntelliGolf's screen width or keypad mapping is not correct on your particular smartphone, please see the Nokia section of our FAQs for easy-to-follow instructions on how to set these items using Preferences.

To download a course, please select the Download Course menu command and follow the Search instructions in the next section.

Course Downloads Search.
To wirelessly search for a course, please enter (at least) the course's name into the Course field. Entering more information (e.g. City, State, Country) will help to refine the search, but may also limit the search. As such, entering just the course's name is best until you get familiar with IntelliGolf. Then, choose the Search command from the menu item. IntelliGolf will connect to the Internet and search the IntelliGolf database for your course. During the search you can use the Cancel command to stop the search at any time.
Course Downloads
At the completion of the search process, IntelliGolf will automatically present the list of available courses that meet your search criteria.From the course list, please select a course to download and then choose the Download command.

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.

Note: If you are a "professional" golfer and have a "plus" USGA Index (e.g. +1), please enter the handicap value number and then check the "Pro/+ hdcp index" checkbox. Most of us (amateurs :-) think of this as a negative handicap, but it is actually called a Plus Handicap.

Sidegames Screen.

4. Add the Side Games.

If members of your group have agreed to a friendly side game, add games here by choose the Add command. 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.

After choosing Add, this screen will allow you to select a game.
Add/Edit Sidegames Screen.

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). Scores and putts are entered on your phone's keyboard.

Entering the scores shown is as easy as tapping on the 4, 1, 4, 2, 5, 2, 6, 2 keys or buttons.

On the first hole, choose the the Start command 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.

Use the trackwheel/trackball to select player scores. Pressing the "Alt" key while using the trackwheel/trackball allows the other areas of this screen to be selected. Once selected, press the space key on your keyboard or use the Select/change command to see a player's scorecard/statistics, track shots, assign game points, or view the game scorecard.

If you select and activate the green rectangle under the flagstick, it brings up this screen so you can track statistics for your shots. You may also use the Shots menu choice.

For drive, fairway, 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).

Too see the information for all tee boxes on a hole, use the Tee Details menu command. If you haven't entered the tee box information for the course you're playing, that can be done here too.

GPS Screen

6. IntelliGPS® (Eagle versions only)

The IntelliGolf Eagle edition and Eagle GPS Option software provides the ability to view GPS distances from tee-to-green. This can be done using industry-leading GPS receivers connected to your smartphone or via the embedded GPS chip in some Nokia-based smartphones (e.g. N95). This is for GPS-surveyed courses as denoted by the "satellite icon" listed next to the course name. To get to the GPS distances screen, please select the GPS menu command or press the # on your keyboard.

This screen is used to set which GPS receiver (i.e. None, Bluetooth, or Integrated) that you will be using with IntelliGolf. If you are using a Nokia-based phone that includes an embedded GPS chip (e.g. Nokia N95) please click here for detailed set-up instructions.

If you will be using an external Bluetooth-based GPS receiver, please refer to the Bluetooth documentation for your phone. You must turn on Bluetooth communication before starting IntelliGolf. You may also need to add your Bluetooth GPS receiver to the devices list in your phone's Bluetooth setup screens. After that is done, then use IntelliGolf's Discovery menu item (via Options) to find the GPS receiver that you will be using with IntelliGolf. There is more on this in our FAQs in the GPS and/or Nokia sections clicking here.

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.
