SkyGolf, developer of SkyCaddie, has introduced its new SkyCaddie SGX rangefinder which will be available in April 2010 at a suggested retail price of £349.95.
The SkyCaddie SGX, powered by a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery and ready for 14 hours of continuous play, also boasts a new three-inch LCD screen that provides brilliant colour images even in bright sunlight.
SkyCaddie‘s proprietary TruePoint Precision Positioning Technology in a GPS engine with ultra-fast satellite acquisition ensures unmatched accuracy, which is further enhanced by an omni-directional GPS antenna that stays locked to optimize performance and accuracy in all terrains.
The SGX offers up to 30,000 pre-loaded, ground-verified maps making it “Ready to Play” out of the box. The SGX also supports SkyCaddie‘s Interactive HoleVue with Zoom capability. HoleVue enables the golfer to know the distance to any point on a hole, which helps them to plan the best strategy.
The SGX also features IntelliGreen technology that showcases the exact shape of the green by automatically rotating it to match a golfer’s angle of approach. Additionally, the SGX offers IntelliGreen Pro, providing golfers with the ability to obtain distances to major green contours.
An additional component in the company’s portal to golf’s future is Club SG Beta, SkyGolf’s new online community. Club SG Beta connects golfers to their game and new SGX owners can sync and store data in a personal performance locker and, in-turn, track key stats, learn about courses, find a teacher, learn if their equipment is helping their game and connect with other golfers.
