Pocket Caddy Golf GPS Coming to US - Rumor
So, a reader wrote in the other day letting me know that the Pocket Caddy, a touch screen GPS is rumored to be coming to the US later this year. I didn't really think much of it, until I started looking into their website. It's got some features that are pretty advanced and doesn't just tell you that you are 175 yards from the green; way more than that. So I thought I would pass more about it along.
At the base, the unit gives you insight into where you are on the course, and distances to the green and hazards. Yea, that's basic, but like I said, it goes a lot further. As you play, you get an overhead picture of the hole, and as you play along you mark where your shots landed.
Not only does the Pocket Caddy keep score for you, but after your round, sync it with the computer and it will pump out an analysis of your round, giving you your average drives, and a visual graphic of their accuracy. Same thing with your approach shots, showing you a visual of where you land, and some cool stats on the approach shots. Finally, because the software is integrated with Google Earth, the analysis will also show you a visual of the hole and where your shots were.
Because you are entering the information on what club you use on each shot, the Pocket Caddy will also start to recommend clubs for you. Something you should have in the back of your head, but I find myself questioning my choice sometimes and could use the help.
The site has a lot of information on the unit. Currently it comes loaded with a golf course, and others can be bought for an additional charge, then added through the desktop software. This handy comparison chart pits it against a lot of the other units in the marketplace.
