If you ever wonder if you have too many devices in your life, and on the golf course, then PowaKaddy may have the answer.
In what is a breakthrough in golf trolley technology has announced the launch of the world’s first model with fully-integrated GPS technology letting you manage the game from the handle of your trolley.
Introduced to the brand's leading FW7s model the FW7s GPS incorporates GPS technology into a super-intelligent digital screen that will bring you fast and accurate distances to the front, middle and back of the green at over 30,000 golf courses worldwide.
On top of the you will also get precise distances to hazards and key course features meaning you won't need any other device to help you chart your way around the course.
Using the technology is simple too, with any course updates easily handled by connecting the FW7s GPS to the PowaKaddy website via a special dedicated programming port underneath the handle.
Mei Tierney, Marketing Manager at PowaKaddy, explains why the FW7s GPS is such a breakthrough product:
We’re really, really excited about our integrated GPS technology and what it means for the performance-focused golfer. Golfers can manage their game from their trolley handle without the need for getting any other device out of their bag or pocket – a real landmark moment for the electric trolley industry. As the GPS is built-in to the trolley handle, we believe it offers a reliable source of distance measurement that is irrespective of mobile signal, battery or internet data.
PowaKaddy has also included a built-in digital socrecard that track golfer's scores as well as saving every round to give you a performance history from the course. The super-intelligent screen even reacts to the golfer’s final score by displaying different emojis based on whether they break their handicap or not.
To allow you to see you what it can do the FW7s GPS has a 'Demo Mode' which means golfers get a preview of the trolley’s GPS functionality in Pro Shops rather than having to take it out onto the course and the technology is backed by the FW7s GPS carrying a full 3-year warranty.
Tierney thinks the FW7s GPS is a great option for serious golfers:
A serious amount of time, effort and investment has gone into the production of the FW7s GPS to make sure it performs to the very highest of standards. It has all the features of our award-winning Freeway range, while the fully-integrated, high-performance GPS delivers much more than just distances to the pin. We also believe the FW7s GPS offers an extremely attractive option for serious golfers, particularly when you consider the high-performance GPS technology on offer for just an extra £120.
Built on the distinctive low profile PowaFrame Chassis with a whisper-quiet 230W motor the FW7s GPS model has a number of high-performance features incuding a 3.5" Widescreen display that also incorporates a calorie counter to tell the golfer the number of calories burned during a round and an Adjustable Distance Control function to set the trolley off independently on a range of distances. A USB Charging Port also allows golfers to charge their smart phone during the round.
As part of PowaKaddy’s comprehensive range for 2017, the new FW7s GPS features several other established PowaKaddy technologies, including the sleek and compact Plug’n’Play battery system, which avoids any fiddly wires or connectors. The trolley comes with either an 18 hole or 36 hole PowaKaddy Lithium battery, which is the thinnest and most powerful design on the market and is available in a Gun Metal Silver frame colour with a choice of Brushed Silver or Carbon Graphite trims.
