SkyGolf®, makers of SkyCaddie®, the #1 rangefinder in golf, have released an update: software version 3.0, also known as the Course & Feature Expansion Package, which includes new features QuickVue™, IntelliGreen® Pro (beta) and HoleVue™ (beta). The New features, available to users of SkyCaddie SG3.5 and SkyCaddie SG5 via software update, provide even greater accuracy and precision while giving more control to the golfer. The update puts professional caddie-level information in your hand with the tools and automation to make golfing better quick and easy.
SG3.5 and SG5 GPS Rangefinder UnitsThe SkyGolf SkyCaddie SG3.5 and SG5 handheld GPS units are premium golf tools designed to maximize performance through better choices. By giving the golfer exact information on distance and layout, better choices will be made regarding club choice and shot planning, ultimately resulting in better scores, less frustration and faster rates of play. The SG3.5 and SG5 feature vivid, full-color LCD screens and large rubberized buttons for easy use. The units use the latest GPS technology and provide access to course libraries exceeding 24,000 golf courses! The SG3.5 uses convenient AAA batteries and the SG5 uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, but both offer a full suite of course tools like digital scorecards, ball marking, distance information, course layout imagery and much more.
QuickVueQuickVue provides a virtual preview of the safest path from the tee to green. With a single glance, golfers know:
- the exact green shape with IntelliGreen
- the total distance from tee to the green
- the shape of the golf hole
- the distance and direction to the perfect fairway position
- the distance remaining from that position for the approach shot to the green.
IntelliGreen Pro (beta release)IntelliGreen Pro allows you to plan your approach shots with the same critical information and precision used by PGA Tour players! Many greens have elevation changes -- upper levels, lower levels, mounds and false fronts -- that go undetected by traditional laser rangefinders, do not show up on aerial photography and cannot be seen visually from the golfer's approach position. With SkyCaddie's exclusive ground-mapping technology, you'll know the distances to those parts of the green in order to "dial in" your shots. IntelliGreen Pro (Beta) is a dynamically-enhanced version of IntelliGreen that adds the ability to display:
- major tiers
- false fronts
