8.25am 11th April 2007 - Corporate

GPS Industries, Inc (GPSI), the leading innovator of Wi-Fi enabled GPS systems for golf facilities, resorts and residential communities, has completed the installation of the Company’s patented Inforemer-HD™ system at Portugal’s Vila Sol Spa & Golf Resort.

Rated among the top courses in Europe by Golf Digest Magazine and twice host of the European Tour’s Portuguese Open, Vila Sol is a stunning 27-hole championship course renowned for its woodland setting of umbrella pines, fig, almond and 300 year old cork oak trees in the heart of the Algarve. Included on the estate is an elegant five-star hotel with 189 luxurious guest rooms.

Always careful to maintain Vila Sol’s reputation as a member of the exclusive ‘Leading Hotels of The World’, the resort carefully scrutinized the gps-for-golf market, after which “We discovered that the full capability, diversity and quality of the Inforemer-HD™ system put GPS Industries light years ahead of any other company,” said director of golf, Sean Corte Real. “The fantastic feedback from our guests after their experiences using these amazing cart-mounted units has made our decision to go with GPSI truly invaluable.”

Commented GPSI president and CEO Robert Silzer, Sr., “As the list of discriminating European resorts and courses choosing our Inforemer-HD™ systems continues to expand we fully expect to meet our ambitious objectives in the largely untapped European market. In fact, our growth around the world continues at a remarkable pace and is reflected in our recent guidance that sales through just the first half of 2007 will exceed our full year revenue for 2006.”
