New Sure Shot Golf GPS

sureshotGolfGPS.jpg
The Sure Shot GPS Golf course device is getting an upgrade in the near future. At the upcoming PGA show in Orlando they will introduce an upgraded Sure Shot GPS system that will include several enhancements to make the product a lot better to use. The device can help golfers estimate distances while on golf courses thus making their game better….. their game, probably not mine. Anyway, the newer units have: a next generation GPS chipset, a brighter screen, better battery life (lasts 13 hours or 2 rounds of golf), and will be WAAS compliant. With the $399 list price, you get a year’s subscription to golf courses around the world, so that your unit is ready to go when you are.

The little unit offers you your current location and with a subscription to the iGolf service (igolf.com) you can download maps of golf courses from around the world, allowing you to know the course layout and the distance to the green from where ever you are.

You can get a reading in yards of how far you are to the front, center, or back of the green as well as seeing all of the hazards in your way such as sand and water traps. If you choose to make your own maps you can designate up to 11 distance markers and 8 additional points for each hole. Another decent feature is that it can learn your shot distance with each club to make club selection even easier.

GPS Ruining Golf in the UK?

Could something as simple as a GPS ruin golf in the UK? Golf's governing body, St Andrews-based Royal and Ancient Golf Club, has yet to rule on the legality of a new GPS device that would tell the golfer how far to the bunkers, green or the pin. "Every time a golfer moves along a hole, the device will receive instant information on course lay-out and exact yardages to hazards such as bunkers and the greens beyond from a satellite thousands of miles above in space.

Jeremy Cooke, the managing director of manufacturers' Golf-Plus.UK Ltd, said: "Using global positioning satellite technology provides a constant stream of accurate information that helps you to play the correct club every time you hit a shot."
