Motocaddy M5 Connect

Editor’s Choice 2019

Arguably one of the most comprehensive electric trolley offerings you’ll find, the M5 Connect is aimed at golfers who are short on space but also want cutting-edge features.

Itfeatures a completely new frame, wheel and battery design, combining to create an 11 per cent smaller folded footprint than its nearest competitor. The GPS functionality comes from the free Motocaddy app, which uses Bluetooth to transfer the distance information to the digital screen on the handle.

Simple assembly

The assemblyprocess has been made much simpler, now using just two clips to go from fully erect to folded down. A further stage involves inverting (flipping) the wheels if you want to save even more space. A pop-out clip allows the trolley to stand vertically for easier storage.

Similar to the S5 Connect, golfers can measure shots and access front, middle and back distances on the handle via their smartphone, as well as text and call notifications. There’s also adjustable distance control to send your trolley off to the next tee and it has the Easilock base to connect it to a Motocaddy cart bag more easily.

Full of features

Especially tall and short golfers will appreciate the adjustable handle height, which is easy to tweak, while those with busy lives off the course will like the ability to stay connected to the outside world while on the course. The screen is surprisingly easy to read given its modest size and the USB charging port enables you to keep your phone topped up, although the Power Save mode on the Motocaddy GPS app means you hardly lose any juice or data during a round.

With a smaller, lighter and more powerful battery to top it off, the M5 Connect was a shoe in for Editor’s Choice as trolley and gadget lovers will find everything they’ll ever need.
