SkyCaddie® unveils the new Wi-Fi enabled SGXw. With its new wireless capabilities, members simply connect directly to SkyGolf’s network via any non-browser Wi-Fi for fast, easy course downloads. Since most cell phone carriers now offer wireless tethering, SGXwusers can even utilize their Smartphone’s Internet access as a “personal hotspot.”
In addition to wireless connectivity, the SGXw comes with many additional stroke-saving features. Interactive HoleVue™ with Auto Zoom provides an eagle’s view of the entire hole, providing yardages needed to avoid hazards and play smarter golf from tee to green. Dynamic RangeVue’s pre-set yardage arcs adjust dynamically over fairway landing areas and greens allowing golfers to select the best club more quickly for every shot. IntelliGreen® Pro calculates distances to major green contours and false fronts, as well as any other point on the green from your angle of attack, saving strokes and reducing three-putts. PinPoint™ Technology (coming in 2012) allows golfers to easily add pin sheet positions while availing themselves of the advantages of the best GPS has to offer, without the hassles and limitations of aiming a laser. Combined with IntelliGreen, you’ll have every bit of information professional golfers demand from their caddies on approach shots.
SkyCaddie makes no compromises on components. The SGXw features a large 3-inch, high-resolution, transflective TFT-LCD screen for brilliant images in the brightest sunlight, an Omni-Directional, high performance GPS antenna and a 50-channel GPS receiver that locks quickly to more satellites and stays locked to optimise performance and accuracy in all terrains. TruePoint GPS™ Precision Positioning Technology, a proprietary high-performance GPS engine for ultra-fast satellite acquisition, delivers unmatched accuracy and proven reliability. An Optical Trackpad provides quick and easy navigation while AutoView enables golfers to change between SkyCaddie’s most popular screens with a simple turn of the wrist. Thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity, golfers can instantly sync and store their scores and stats online at ClubSGfor post-round analysis.
