Leading power trolley brand Motocaddy has launched a new cellular-powered Performance Plan across its premium GPS electric trolley range to supercharge the technology now available to new and existing hi-tech trolley owners.
After being the first powered trolley brand to introduce cellular connectivity earlier this year, Motocaddy has added the cutting-edge Performance Plan upgrade from this week, enabling many thousands of M5 GPS, M5 GPS DHC and M-TECH GPS model owners to unlock a selection of stunning performance-enhancing features at their fingertips.
- Full hole mapping across 40,000 courses directly onto the trolley handle.
- Detailed green view with greenside hazards and drag & drop pin positions.
- Score & statistics tracking through the trolley’s touchscreen display.
- Performance analysis through the free Motocaddy GPS App.
- Real-time course updates to ensure access to the latest mapping.
- Notifications of software updates & ‘on-the-go’ downloads.
Harnessing the in-built Cellular connectivity offered by the three hi-tech models, the new Motocaddy Performance Plan is available initially through a generous trial period, followed by an optional annual subscription package offering great value to golfers.
The same plan and upgraded software is also available to operators of Motocaddy M5 GPS rental fleets.
“This development marks a major step forward in the technology offered by modern electric trolleys and another industry first from Motocaddy, as we utilise the unrivalled connectivity offered by our hi-tech GPS models to deliver revolutionary new features to golfers,” said Marketing Director, Oliver Churcher.
“The cellular-powered Performance Plan has been years in the making and it shows the extent to which Motocaddy futureproofs its products to provide the best features to consumers. Offering generous free trial periods will allow our trolley owners to really get to grips with what the Performance Plan offers and we urge all our retail partners to encourage their customers to take advantage. Ultimately, we expect the new features will help retailers sell more Motocaddy products and attract golfers to our brand,” he added.
To access the free trial, users will need to install the latest firmware update onto their trolley. Following installation, the free trial is activated when registration has been completed on the trolley handle and runs for six months on the M5 GPS and M5 GPS DHC models and 12 months on the flagship M-TECH GPS trolley. Following completion of the trial period, users will be given the option to proceed with an annual subscription plan or revert to the ‘standard’ functionality offered on the trolleys with the Performance Plan features disabled.
Annual subscriptions will be priced at £49.99 (€59.99) and provide the subscriber with full access to the Performance Plan features over a 12-month period.
For golfers to take full advantage of the scoring and statistic tracking feature, users will also need to install the latest version of the free Motocaddy GPS App – available on compatible iOS and Android smartphones – and register/login using the same details on both devices.
Rental fleet access
The installation and registration process are the same as above and rental fleet owners are able to register all their trolleys using the same email address if required. A list of registered trolleys will show within the Motocaddy GPS App.
“Allowing rental fleets to access the new Performance Plan enables our stockists to not only offer enhanced features and better service to their renting customers, but also provides a perfect sales opportunity,” added Churcher.
