SkyCaddie’s top-of-the-range GPS device, the Touch, has received a range of software updates which make golf’s most advanced rangefinder even more powerful.
And all owners have to do is synchronise their devices online, to receive the latest SkyCaddie Touch updates for free.
Several of the updates enhance SkyCaddie’s exclusive golf course maps, which are produced by trained mappers using professional surveying equipment on foot during repeated visits to the club.
The chief headline-grabber is the addition of IntelliGreen Pro, an enhanced version of SkyCaddie’s exclusive IntelliGreen service which displays exact, up-to-date close-up maps of every green on the golf course. IntelliGreen Pro displays distances to key contours on each green, helping golfers to target a specific area even more accurately. If the pin is on an upper shelf at the back of the green, for example, SkyCaddie Touch owners will now know where the slope begins, and can club accordingly.
The IntelliGreen display has also been enlarged by 20%, in the update, making it even easier for you to plan your shot to the pin.
The Touch can display its course maps in spectacular HD graphics, and its Auto-Zoom feature when in HoleVue mode has been enhanced, now with seven levels of Auto-Zoom (it had three previously) and some improvements to the Manual Zoom feature enabling you to zoom into the area you wish to view in better detail. The updated Touch thus gives golfers their best-ever ability to manipulate their SkyCaddie map of the hole.
In response to popular demand from the UK, where Stableford scoring is more prevalent than in other parts of the world, the updated SkyCaddie Touch has added Stableford scoring to its Scorecard function. The Scorecard itself has been improved, and you are now able to add Putting information.
The latest updates to the Touch also help to improve pace-of-play on the golf course. The device itself now starts up three times faster, with many screens loading up more quickly due to the updated software.
And here’s a cool update for golfers who simply want everything to start automatically. When you get to the golf course, you can simply now walk to the first tee and switch your Touch on. Its AutoStart feature will automatically find the golf course, and will go straight to a display of the first hole – without any buttons needing to be pressed. You’re ready to play!
With even better Bluetooth connectivity and several other minor performance upgrades, the updated SkyCaddie Touch is far and away the most versatile, powerful and advanced GPS golf rangefinder the game has ever seen.
