Skytrak+ is the next generation of the best selling golf launch monitor of all time.
GSPro is the most popular golf simulation software that makes use of an Open API that allows members of the GSPro community to connect all types of launch monitors, including those that aren’t officially supported.
At this time, the Skytrak+ is not officially supported by GSPro BUT there is an early version of a user-created connection to GSPro available!
It should only take you about 15 minutes from the time you purchase GSPro on their website to download everything and start playing your first round using your Skytrak Plus.
Below I will outline the steps to get your SkyTrak Plus up and running with GSPro so you can enjoy some awesome simulation golf on 500+ amazing courses.

1.) Purchase your GSPro license on gsprogolf.com
There are 2 purchase options, subscription and subscription + lifetime add-on. The lifetime add-on will give you ownership of the license should you decide to stop paying for the annual subscription in the future. You will no longer receive any updates if you stop paying the annual subscription.
I would just choose the annual subscription as you are going to want the latest updates.
You are required to select your launch monitor when purchasing. Choose “Other/Open API” to use your Skytrak+.
2.) Download GSPro using the license key and instructions emailed to you.
You will receive an email with a license key, a download link, instructions and a quick start guide.
3.) Download the Connection Files
There are two options for your Skytrak+ connection. Download the version you prefer.
No Putting – Download (Recommended)
This has been updated to work with SKYTRAK v4.4.1.
This option does not allow you to putt on GSPro with your Skytrak+. You will want to select one of the AutoPutt options in your GSPro round settings.
No worries, playing with AutoPutt on GSPro is still plenty of fun and very challenging.
Putting with Issues – Download
This will only work with SKYTRAK v4.4.0.
This option will let you putt with your Skytrak+ but have the following issues:
1 – Putts have no Horizontal Launch Angle
2 – You may have to hit your first putt extremely hard to get putting mode to activate
3 – Sometimes you may get stuck in putting mode and need to reset your connection.

4.) Place the Files in your SKYTRAK folder
Unzip your downloaded file and move the BepInEx folder to Program Files > SKYTRAK.
Inside the BepInEx folder there are 2 files named doorstop_config and winhttp. Move those 2 files from within the BepInEx folder to the SKYTRAK Folder.
When finished, your SKYTRAK folder should look like this:
5.) Open GSPro with the OpenAPI Connection Window
Launch GSPro and make sure the OpenAPI connection window opens and remains open.
If this is your first time launching GSPro you may see a gray window with black buttons. Choose the OpenAPI button and that OpenAPI window will open every time you launch GSPro in the future.
If a different type of connection opens go to GSPro Settings > Game > Reset GSPro Connect. This will reopen your connect window and allow you to choose OpenAPI.
6.) Open SKYTRAK Driving Range
Open the SKYTRAK software and open the driving range. You may need to right click on SKYTRAK and select Run as Administrator.
Your GSPro OpenAPI window should now have a green stripe at the top and say “connected” at the bottom.
That’s it, you’re done! Enjoy playing hundreds of golf courses on GSPro using your Skytrak launch monitor.
If you downloaded the No Putting version, don’t forget to choose AutoPutt in the settings before starting a round.
Frequently Asked Questions
What subscription do I need for my Skytrak+ to work with GSPro?
Currently you only need the Basic (free) subscription from Skytrak to be able to work with GSPro. There is no guarantee that won’t change in the future!
What if I have trouble connecting or using my Skytrak+ with GSPro?
Since Skytrak+ is not an officially supported launch monitor for GSPro, neither GSPro or Skytrak will help you with the connection. The best place to ask for help would be within Discord in the Simulator Golf Tour channel or the STVision channel. There are lots of helpful users there that can help you troubleshoot.
What if I have multiple launch monitors or change launch monitors in the future? Do I need to buy GSPro again?
No. Simply email GSPro support and let them know which launch monitors you have. They will add the correct connection options to your license. For example, if you select Flightscope when you purchase GSPro just email GSPro support and let them know you also have a Skytrak and need the Open API option as well. They will add the Open API option to your account and you can then switch between launch monitors using the GSPro connection window that opens when you launch.
Why do I have to use this program to connect my Skytrak+ to GSPro?
GSPro allows an Open API option which basically means they make their code free to the public. This allows anyone to review their code and create other programs that can connect or add to it.
Regular users have created bridge programs that allow connections to other launch monitors like Skytrak and then shared them with the community. Once connected, the playing experience is the same!
The original SKYTRAK worked with GSPro. Is this the same connection method?
No, the SKYTRAK+ will not connect using the same method as the original SKYTRAK. A new program needed to be made just for the SKYTRAK+.
Will SKYTRAK+ be officially supported in the future?
We hope so! That doesn’t seem likely at this time as you would think they would have done this prior to launching the Skytrak+.
They could be waiting for the current Trackman vs GSPro lawsuit to be resolved before partnering with GSPro. Earlier in 2023, Foresight Sports announced a GSPro partnership only to put it on hold once news of the Trackman lawsuit broke.
Will GSPro show my club data from the SKTRAK+?
With these early versions there is no club data getting passed through to GSPro. Hopefully that will change in the future.
When will the putting issues be resolved?
Hopefully the users that created this will get these issues resolved in the near future but keep in mind they are doing this in their spare time. We will try to update this page with new versions when they are released by the developers.
The Skytrak+ still uses a camera to measure the ball data which means there is no additional space requirements that are typical of radar-based launch monitors.
As with most new launch monitors being released these days, the big question is will Skytrak+ work with GSPro. For many, if the answer is no it means they will move on to a different launch monitor that will work with GSPro.
GSPro has quickly become the best golf simulator software available (in my opinion) because of it’s amazing graphics, course selection (400+ and counting), wide user base that includes online play and tournaments, as well as the best value.
The software is currently offered at $250/yr which makes it a fraction of many other golf simulator software options like E6 Connect and TGC 2019.
