SkyCaddie's latest SX500 handheld GPS their most powerful and accurate yet

Published:

SkyCaddie say their latest SX500 handheld GPS is their most powerful and accurate yet, using PinPoint technology to give accurate distances to pins for the first time.

SkyCaddie's new SX500 GPS handheld is their most powerful, accurate and feature-packed handheld distance measuring device yet, with 40 geo-referenced targets per hole and a range of technologies to offer a substantial amount of insight before you play each shot. 

Launched in the year of SkyCaddie's 20th Anniversary, the brand say their latest GPS device provides accurate distances to every single hole feature faster than a laser, and is the culmination of everything which SkyCaddie represents to golfers.

So what makes it SkyCaddie's Ultimate GPS?

A new PinPoint technology in SkyCaddie's SX500 gives accurate distances to each day's pin positions, while IntelliGreen® Pro provides distances to false fronts, major tiers, greenside mounds and contours on the green.

Dynamic HoleVueTM with Integrated Targets continuously re-orients the entire hole map from your exact position to give up-to-date information and distances to hazards and landing areas, and Dynamic RangeVue® overlays fairway landing areas and greens to show at-a-glance yardages across the full width of the hole - even when your view is restricted.

The Dynamic RangeVue® has an additional Club Ranges feature (restricted to use only in practice rounds and casual golf) for in-play club selection suggestions tailored to your game when you enter your personal club-by-club hitting distances into your SkyGolf 360TM account and synchronise your device. 

There's also a 5" full HD touch screen in the highly water-resistant design, a hi-capacity rechargeable Li-Polymer battery which lasts for over 36 holes, a 13-megapixel camera, in-built WiFi,  a Super Large Number Mode and a Digital Scorecard with handicapping that tracks total putts and fairways hit.

Elsewhere, a Shot Distance Measurement feature helps you track how far you have just hit the ball, and helps you to learn your club distances; Target List View gives you a quick list of all the targets ahead of you on the hole; and Tee Box Selection, Gender Selection, Dual Green Support, Yards or Metres option, Stat Tracking and a North Indicator are also available.

SkyCaddie's SX500 will be available in the UK from late August 2018 at RRP £379.95, which includes a year’s pre-paid Birdie membership covering over 99% of golf courses in Great Britain & Ireland.
