GoGoGo Sport Vpro GS24 MTL Review
In this GoGoGo rangefinder review, we will focus on the functionality and accuracy of the GoGoGo Sport Vpro GS24 MTL. The GoGoGo golf rangefinder is a budget-friendly golf tool that packs a surprising amount for its price features compared to a high-end Bushnell or Nikon device. However, if you are curious as to if this is enough technology for your needs as a player, we have you covered.
The accuracy of the GoGoGo Sport GS24 MTL is quite good, considering the price range. If you are within 150 yards, there is a Flagpole Locking mechanism that ensures you are properly locked into the target. When the flagpole is locked, the device will vibrate to inform golfers.
When testing this unit, we found the accuracy was within the +/- 1m that GoGoGo Sport claims. Compared to another rangefinder at a higher price point, the accuracy was the same from 150 yards and in.
Outside of the 150-yard range, the flagpole locking technology has a reduced capacity, and this has some impact on the overall accuracy of the rangefinder. Golfers that have a really steady hand, may not notice too much of a difference in performance, but now and again you may have to check you have your target and not the backdrop.
The GoGoGo Sport Vpro has slope functionality, and the TL and MTL models are also tournament legal model, as you are able to turn the slope function on and off with the flick of a switch.
Many amateur golfers get excited to find out that a budget rangefinder has slope technology. Some of these budget laser rangefinders don’t allow you to turn the slope off. This is one of the main features that golfers need to look out for when choosing their rangefinder.
The slope mode is just as accurate compared to more expensive rangefinders; expect the slope readings to take a fraction longer to load up as they do their calculations to help improve accuracy. Overall having the option to switch from one mode to the next is the most important feature and there has to be some trade-off for what you save in terms of price.
The mode button on the top of the GoGoGo Sport Vpro GS24 MTL allows you to switch between the slope and non-slope modes. In addition, you can use the modes button to toggle between meters and yards.
Visuals & Optics
Of the three rangefinders in the GoGoGo Golf Sport Vpro lineup, the GS24 MTL has the best optics. There is a high-performance lens that helps reduce reflected light and gives you a really clear image of the hole. We didn’t notice this lens being any clearer than others we tested; however, it is effortless and easy to see your yardages in all light conditions.
In addition, the diopter (twisty eyepiece) can be adjusted to ensure that you are focused to the exact level you need for your vision. For those with vision problems, the GoGoGo Sport Vpro lineup is a good choice. However, if you have a really shaky hand, you may still struggle to get accurate yardage.
From 150 yards and in, the GoGoGo Sport VPro makes it really easy to get a yardage. The Pin Seeking technology locks into the flag, and it will vibrate to let you know you are on target. We found this to happen really quickly, and the accuracy was great.
In the 150 to 250 yard range, you can zero in on the flag, and it should pick up without any trouble or confusion. With the 150 to 250 yard range, the unit will not vibrate.
Overall, golfers need to remember this is a very budget-friendly rangefinder. The usability is good, but it does not have all of the high-end pin locking technology that premium units will have. However, we did trust the yardages we got with this model.
The GoGoGo Sport Vpro GS24 MTL has a slightly cheap feeling compared to premium models. This is not a very heavy rangefinder, and it doesn’t have the same tactile feel that a premium model will have. The compact size is nice as you can use it comfortably with just one hand.
The MTL model is our favorite of the three because of the magnetic cart mount. The magnet is actually quite strong, and it is a great place to keep your rangefinder as you travel from one hole of the golf course to another.
When it comes to the overall pricing for this unit, it’s going to be hard to beat. The functionality that the model provides for a fair price makes it a solid investment. A higher-priced model would give you more accuracy in the 150 yards and up range and more speed with slope readings. All of the GoGoGo Golf Rangefinders come with a one year warranty.
The GoGoGo Sport Vpro GS24 has three different models for golfers to choose from. The price difference between each of the models is just $10. Try not to let the price come into play when the difference is so small; instead, choose the rangefinder model that is the best overall fit for your needs as a player.
All models come with a carry case featuring a quick access elastic strap, cleaning cloth and manual.
GoGoGo Sport Vpro GS24 (Base Model)
This is the basic model and the cheapest of the three. The GoGoGo Sport GS24 does have slope technology which is rather impressive for its price. However, the issue is that the slope cannot be turned on and off; therefore, this is not tournament legal.

GoGoGo Sport Vpro GS24 TL (Tournament Legal)
The GoGoGo Sport Vpro GS24 TL is the most popular model as it has all the functionality found in the base model with the ability to turn slope on and off. Even if you don’t think you are going to compete in a tournament at this stage in your game, having the option to turn this on and off is nice.
GoGoGo Sport Vpo GS24 MTL (Magnetic & Tournament Legal)
The only difference between the TL and the MTL is the fact that the MTL features the magnetic cart mount. For a few extra dollars, you can save yourself from having to buy a cart mount or worry about where you may store your rangefinder.
Golf Insider verdict
This GoGoGo model topped our list of the best rangefinders under $100/£100. If you consider yourself an average golfer who wants a simple and accurate yardage to a pin, the GoGoGo Sport Vpro GS24 is a perfect fit for your needs.
For frequently playing golfers wanting exceptional accuracy and ease of use from outside of 150-yards, the GoGoGo Sport Vpro is still an option, but we’d recommend spending a little more for improved usability.
Frequently asked questions
In this next section, we’ll try and clear up any outstanding questions that you may have about the GoGoGo Golf rangefinders.
How do you use a GoGoGo rangefinder?
The GoGoGo rangefinders are extremely user friendly and are built for the average golfer. You don’t need to be a tech wizard to work a GoGoGo rangefinder. Simply set your GoGoGo rangefinder to meter or yards, hold the unit up to the target and press the button on the rangefinder. The yardage will appear within a second and will be displayed in the rangefinder scope.
Which GoGoGo rangefinder is the best?
Of all the GoGoGo rangefinders we tested the GoGoGo Sport Vpro GS24 MTL was the best overall choice. This model has a few more features than others, and it helps it stand out as the best. The GS24 MTL is a tournament legal rangefinder that also has magnetic functionality. The high strength magnets allow the model to stick to the side of the cart when not in use.
How do I change my Gogogo rangefinder from meters to yards?
To switch your GoGoGo rangefinder from meters to yards hold down the mode button on the top of the unit for two seconds to switch between meters and yards. This model does come from the manufacturer set for meters.
What battery type do the GoGoGo rangefinders use?
The GoGoGo Sport rangefinders use two AAA batteries. These batteries are easy to source, and you can keep a few extras in your golf bag. We found that the batteries lasted for quite some time as the unit will automatically shut off when not in use.
Is Gogogo a good rangefinder?
The Gogogo is a low-cost rangefinder that includes the slope function, relatively quick readings, and a very clear view of the Pin. There are several different GoGoGo rangefinders for golfers, and they all have the same baseline accuracy. The main differences from one to the next will be the ability to turn the slope on and off and the additional features like magnetic cart mount or Pin Lock technology.
Summary – GoGoGo Rangefinder Review
If you are an average golfer on a budget, the GoGoGo Sport Vpro should be on your list. Avid golfers looking for premium technology and incredible accuracy should consider something like a Bushnell rangefinder instead. In addition, the GolfBuddy Laser Lite is an excellent alternative to the GoGoGo if you want a compact model with lots of reliability.
