Bushnell Golf has launched a Bluetooth speaker with built-in GPS yardage capabilities.
Designed to be mounted on a golf buggy, the Wingman GPS Speaker provides players with audible yardages for the front, centre and back of the green from their current location, while playing the music of their choice through a mobile app.
Golfers can pair their smartphones with the Wingman and the Bushnell Golf app, then press a button to get their yardages for an all-in-one solution for playing music and knowing your yardage into the green. The Wingman comes with Bushnell’s magnetic BITE mount, which can secure the speaker to any golf cart.
Bushnell Golf has also announced a upgrade to its GPS app. FREE to download for all Bushnell Golf product owners and suitable for Apple and Android phone users, the new App provides access to a selection of features designed to further enhance a golfers’ experience on the course. Once downloaded, the App can be used with or without a Bushnell device, enabling golfers to benefit from its many features even if they aren’t using their laser or GPS.
“Golfers are always looking for a competitive edge, while still trying to have fun. We are excited to introduce a product that will allow them to enjoy themselves on the course, while providing them with the functions of a distance measuring device,” said Andrew Grose, Managing Director, YUMAX Golf. “With its ability to play music and provide the GPS data golfers rely on, the Wingman GPS Speaker is unlike any other product in the industry, and we are thrilled to add it to the Bushnell Golf family.”
The device, which has a battery life of up to 10 hours, has an RRP of £149.
