Calibrating Your Device

The Tour Read Golf app accurately measures the slope of the green and translates this into a precise “Tour Read” of the amount of break to play and the pace you need for any putt. In order to do this it uses the internal sensors on your device. Calibration is a process that will help to ensure that the internal sensors of your device are accurately determining the slope of the device.

Calibration can also mitigate the effects of “bumps” on the back of your phone. These bumps may be caused by the protruding camera or by the shape of any protective case that you have added. In most cases, calibration should allow the app to function well even with the case on.

After you subscribe to the app, you should be automatically prompted to Calibrate your device. 

You can also Calibrate your device at any time by tapping the Calibrate under the Settings menu (gear icon at top right of the app).

Once you start the calibration process, simply follow the steps as described on your device. You should always try to calibrate your device on a firm, flat surface such as a table or desk.

Will my the case on my device affect reads?

It could. If the back of your phone isn’t flat or has “bumps” on it such as the protruding camera or case, this can affect the read. In most cases, calibration should allow the app to function well even with the case on.
