Gogogo have created a small storm in the rangefinder market and now have several different rangefinder models to choose from. We tested the Gogogo Sport Vpro to see how it performs against some of the top rangefinders on the market and similar-priced rangefinders.
The Gogogo Sport Vpro has become a well-known option for golfers in search of a budget rangefinder. This model comes with 3 different modes, slope mode that can be toggled on and off and a rechargeable battery.
The usability and build are very impressive considering the price. It is accurate to within 1 yard up to 150 yards and within 2 yards when trying to locate targets up to 200 yards. However, be aware that it will pick up the background now and again and give you a false reading.
This still offers great value and is a fine choice for beginner and infrequent golfers shopping on a budget.

Gogogo Sport Vpro Rangefinder Overall Ratings
Golf Insider Verdict 83.9
We test every rangefinder for accuracy so you can know ahead of time what to expect. This testing involves measuring four known targets between 50 and 200 yards. Each rangefinder has 3 attempts at each in a randomised order.
The Gogogo Sport VPro is about 99.24% accurate, with an average yardage error of just .89 yards.
|Avg. yardage error
When we dive a little deeper we see the Gogogo Sport Vpro is very accurate inside of 150 yards. Expect the distances to be off by only about a yard. The error creeps up a bit as we get up to 200 yards to just under 2 yards.
This is good enough for most golfers.
When compared to a premium model, golf rangefinders priced over $400, the accuracy rating is 99.6% or less than 0.3 yards of error.
The only thing to be aware of here is that the Gogogo Sport Vpro sometimes picks up a tree or post behind the pin when we tested this around a tree-lined golf course. It can be hard to lock on to the pin with green surrounds covered in trees and brush as you get up to 180 yards and further away.
There are three modes to choose from:
- Distance Measure & Normal Scan Mode (M1)
- Golf Mode (M2)
- Speed Mode (M3)
The normal scan (M1) allows you to hold down the power button and then scan to see the distance adjust as you scan. The continuous range readings help you scan across trees, bunkers and other obstacles to work out how far to hit it off the tee or when laying up.
Golf mode (M2) contains the slope function, that can be switched on/off using the button on the side of the Gogogo sport Vpro rangefinder. Golf mode shows the real distance and slope-adjusted distance.
Speed Mode gives you the speed of objects moving away or towards you, not too much use for golf here, unless you want to find out the fastest golfer in your group…
Visuals & Optics
The visuals and options from the Gogogo Sport Vpro are good, but you have to keep in mind the price of the unit. The picture is clear and they’ve done a great job fitting all the information onto the screen with slope mode, but it’s just not as clean-looking as the Bushnell V6 rangefinder or other more expensive rangefinder models.
For new rangefinder owners, you’ll likely be really impressed. If you are moving down from a high-end rangefinder just be aware that the savings have to come from somewhere and lenses are expensive!
It’s only going to take you a few seconds to learn how to use the Gogogo Sport Vpro rangefinder. The button allows you to switch between the different modes, and you can also change from yards to meters if necessary.
There is really no learning curve here, it’s a simple model that does what it is supposed to.
The only real reason our scoring went down a little when it came to usability is that some of the buttons feel a little stiff. We would also add that this needs to be charged up, unlike most rangefinders that have a battery.
However, we are yet to wear the battery down since our first charge. So you can expect this to last you a few rounds of golf between charges.
The Gogogo Sport Vpro is lightweight, nicely finished, and feels more expensive than its price tag would suggest. The slope button may not be as easy to click into place as other rangefinders, but for the price, the build feels very impressive.
The build quality won’t keep you from being satisfied with this device.
If you had asked us during testing we’d guess this would be a $199 – $299 rangefinder. We were amazed by how cost-effective this rangefinder is; it has tremendous value when looking at the overall functionality.
Golf Insider Verdict
If you want a low-cost rangefinder that gives you a really solid idea of distances, the Gogogo Sport Vpro is well worth your money. You are going to get an obscure reading from time to time; to avoid that you’ll need to spend $200+ on a rangefinder. However, if you can live with that, the overall pricing, usability and accuracy make this rangefinder one of the best options on the market.
A great buy for beginner golfers, infrequent golfers and golfers that like a no-frills laser rangefinder at a great price.

The GolfBuddy rangefinders tend to be a good alternative to the Gogogo Sport Vpro, but they are going to come at a higher cost. The GolfBuddy has the LaserLite is one of the best we’ve tested for accurate readings if you have a little more cash to spare.
