I went from everything is fine to ...what I described. Cables are fine, batteries are 2 years old, nothing was changed except I added the device. But, in fairness, I spoke with the owner of the site/inventor of the product and he wasn't sure it would provide the same boost on my '08 compared to earlier years, so maybe it's just that.

Well from what you said you got the boost, age of batteries not sure that makes a difference! put a meter on them and post the voltage sitting and when driving someone will help you out.

I know this: before the speedy link I could drive it 36 holes of golf; with it, sometimes barely making it home after 18. I don't need to take any measurements to know that energy consumption has increased with the speedy link device attached.

Since you don't need to take any readings of your batteries, because your sure that they are a 100% ok, now that you took the speedy link off your cart, does it get the 36 holes now,?? ---- that it would not get with the speedy link hooked up ??

is this what you meant, increased ?

yes...got it before the speedy link, and can now go 36 since disconnecting it. Wish it weren't true, meaning battery consumption was unchanged, but the fact is it is dramatically different.

Just pay $100 and get speed code 4 programmed.

I wonder why a 2008 model was so iffy as to whether the speedy link would work well as the owner warned me? Makes me wonder if a Level 4 upgrade will be as problematic. I do miss the speed increase so I'll probably do something.
Anyone in the market for a one month old Speedy Link?

I have no idea what the issue is with your speedy link but from what I've read, things changed for the Precedent midway through the year of 08'. When ordering parts for my 06', it will always say that it is good for Precedents up to the year of 2008.5.

Right, they apparently changed back to 36 volt systems.

IMPORTANT!!!!!!!
Well, now it seems I need to retract all that I previously said about the battery issues. Just got back from playing 18 holes and the cart barely made it back to the clubhouse. In other words it is exhibiting the same problem I had when the Speedy Link was installed. So, apparently there is no connection between the Speedy Link and my batteries wearing down so **** quick. If i could erase all the above messages i would since it is unfair to place the blame on the device. My apologies to all who might have been misled.
Oh, and as soon as the batteries are charged I'm putting it back on!
