The DS-Lite by UBVASA provides you with two basic services - handling the score card, and measuring distances.
It is a light version of the DiscgolfServant, having the restrictions that max two players are handled, and that the exporting of the score is possible max 15 times.

Here follows a summary of the features available.
- Up to two players in the same round
- Easy score entering: per player, after every hole just enter
* Number of strokes
- The score is available during play as
* Total number of strokes
* Net score
* Stableford points
- The score per player is available after the round as a CSV file to be exported,
containing the following data per hole:
* Number of strokes
* Net score
* Stableford points
* Drive distance
- Rangefinder using phone´s GPS
* References are classified into: Green/Tee/Bunker/Water/Other
* References are further given a name
* References are grouped by hole
* Any number of references can be added
* Distance is presented in meter, or yards
* Distance referencing Tee (=drives) can be saved per player in scorecard
* No limit on number of references
* Support for diff calibration
- Mapping of new course references
* Using Google maps to obtain location data, which is entered into a template
file, and then imported into DS-Lite
* Acquired using the GPS on the actual location, and directly fed into DS-Lite
* importing a course, received from someone who has created and exported it
(as a CSV file)
- Player names are saved in database, and easily available for
coming rounds
- Support for quitting the app, and then later resuming the (ongoing) round

The first thing you have to do after installing DS-Lite is to enter the course you want to play. If you can not find someone that already have done this job, from which you can get a file to import, then you need to do this yourself. Entering the "hard facts" about the course (name/num of holes, hole data) is easy, to enter location reference data (for the GPS rangefinder) you can use Google maps to find the latitude/longitude values needed. This is a process that takes an hour or two. To get the feel for the application before investing this amount of time, you can download the template course file from the developer web site. As that is a complete and working course definition you can then import it, and run a simulated round on it. Select it for playing, enter one or more players as new players, and try it out. If you are sitting close to a window you can even start the GPS, and try the range finder (the distances measured will be to the greens of this Swedish course). You can add new references, and maybe move around a little to measure the distance to these. If you like the app after this exercise, you can then invest in entering the data for your course, and the go for a real round of disc golf.

There is also a lite version on the Market, DS_Lite, that contains the same functionality, but with two constraints - max two players, and a limitation on the number of times results can be exported. For more info, go to DS_Lite.
This application only requires access to the GPS service, it does not require access to services that may induce costs, like access to internet, or telephony services.
