Introducing the brand new SX500 from Skycaddie. The three watchwords from Skycaddie to describe this fabulous new handheld GPS are: vivid, powerful & accurate.
The SX500 features a full high definition (HD), 5 inch touch screen that you are able to use even when wearing your golf glove. The screen allows you to view the course in stunning graphics. The device is powered by an extremely fast multi-core processor that gives you yardages quickly. This means you are not waiting for the device to catch up with your position on the course. There is no need to connect to a computer as there is Wifi connectivity so that updates and course downloads can be done quickly and efficiently. There is also a free concierge set up service with the SX500 bundles.
The device comes preloaded with over 35,000 golf courses and according to Skycaddie, only they walk the courses and take thousands of reference point measurements so that all of the yardages are pinpoint accurate. There are yardages to front/middle/back of the green, to all hazards and to any point on the hole by using the moveable cursor on the device. This gives the golfer all the information they need to choose the right club for the shot. The device features an auto course selection so you can just turn up and play. It features an auto hole advance function and by 'pinching' or double tapping the screen, crucial distances to hazards, carries and layups are shown.
With Skycaddie's patented Intelligreen technology, the device shows the exact shape of the green from your playing position. This includes the distance of any bunker carries, false fronts, mounds or different levels/tiers on the green. This comprehensive information helps the golfer choose the type of shot and club to play.
The weather is not a problem for the SX500. The device is highly water resistant and with its rugged design, it continues to give extremely accurate information in the worst of weather conditions. For those golfers who like to analyse their round, the SX500 offers digital scoring on the device together with stat tracking and more for a complete overall picture. The battery will do a minimum of 36 holes before it needs to be recharged.
Nothing is left to chance. All the information is available for the golfer to make an informed decision in order to trim those all important shots from their score.
