GolfBuddy is to launch its most advanced ever rangefinder with the GolfBuddy World Platinum - a super-powerful, interactive, touchscreen edition, with a lifetime of 40,000 free, no subscription, worldwide course maps

The GolfBuddy World Platinum brings together market leading GPS technology with an outstanding array of new functions designed to give golfers the ultimate game-management tool, all for a one-off price.

In the increasingly competitive golf rangefinder market, GolfBuddy World Platinum will offer unmatched technology, which includes:
- An industry-leading 40,000 course memory

GolfBuddy World Platinum provides precise yardages to and from any point on the course with elegant simplicity and ease of use. Superior 50-channel GPS satellite architecture and a Galileo compliant platform for faster signal acquiring times provide uninterrupted operation, better performance in city areas and lightning fast position fixes, even in environments where GPS signals are extremely weak, while outstanding tee-to-green course images and yardage numbers visibility come in a lightweight, ergonomic body with a bright, 3" hi-resolution, anti-glare LCD screen.

The GolfBuddy World Platinum

The Automatic Course & Hole Recognition system instantly understands and displays which course you are playing and also knows which hole you are on - making it perfect for shotgun starts or when playing resorts or complexes with multiple courses or layouts.

Out on the course, the transflective colour touchscreen LCD display ensures exceptional color and detail and uses thin-film transistor (TFT) technology which gives optimum performance and maximum image quality in bright light. And its anti-glare, smudge-resistant design makes it super-easy to use - even while wearing a golf glove.

When playing a hole, the Direct Overhead Imaging displays an eagle-eye view from tee to green, while TouchPoint gives users the ability to touch the screen to zoom in on a specific section or to instantly measure precise distances between any two points on the Full Hole Layout.

Players can switch easily to yardages mode and get an instant and clear numerical display of distance to the green, or select Targets mode and see a panel containing distances to and to carry all hazards ahead.

Around the green, Dynamic Green Approach provides exact distances to the front, middle and back of the green directly from the angle of approach and shows the actual shape of the green, while the Touch ’N’ Move Flag lets golfers position the pin anywhere on the green to calculate exactly how much room they have to play with.

Alongside its innovative Pro Play system – allowing golfers to track, record and analyse their own playing statistics, including greens and fairways hit in regulation and number of putts per hole, storing the data in the device or on your computer via the simple GolfBuddy Manager software – GolfBuddy World Platinum has been developed with and to meet the exacting course management standards of some of the world’s best Tour coaches, including Denis Pugh and Rick Smith.

With its mammoth 40,000 course memory and most of the world's golf courses pre-loaded, the World Platinum continues to establish GolfBuddy as the only GPS rangefinder brand that provides golfers true global GPS accuracy completely free of charge. With GolfBuddy there are no annual subscriptions or course download fees – you just turn it on and play - worth remembering when comparing prices.

The GolfBuddy World Platinum boasts a sleek and edgy design but has been manufactured to withstand the rigours of the golf course, with a rugged lithium-ion battery, shock and water resistant casing with impact-shielding side bumpers and a high tech rubber coating.

The GolfBuddy World Platinum will be launched in August at a RRP of £349. For more information, visit
