The quickest and most reliable way to check your phone's compatibility is to open up the Golf Pad TAGS tab in the preferences menu of the Golf Pad app and see if any warnings are displayed.


Golf Pad TAGS use technology called Near Field Communication (NFC). Most Android phones and iPhones have it nowadays. You can check the full list of NFC-enabled Android phones here

NOTE: This  link provided is informational only and it not maintained by Golf Pad. You can also verify with your phone manufacturer to determine if your phone is NFC enabled. 


iPhones 7 or later with iOS 12 or later are supported. iPhone SE is not compatible with tags. Android phones must run Android 4.0 or later.


Older Golf Pad TAGS may not work with iPhone, see this article for more information.
