SkyCaddie launch the SGX - the next generation GPS rangefinder
January 8, 2010

SkyCaddie has introduced a series of complementary game-changing technologies with the launch of its revolutionary SkyCaddie® SGX™, the next generation rangefinder.

The SkyCaddie SGC - the next generation GPS rangefinder

“Our mission is to help golfers play smarter, play better, play faster and have more fun. We believe that if golfers experience more rewards from the game, they will play more rounds, take more lessons, get properly fit for equipment, and share their passion with other golfers, both new and inactive, to help to grow the game,” said Richard Edmonson, CEO, SkyGolf.

“The SkyCaddie SGX is not only the most advanced, reliable distance measuring device in golf, it is a platform that can extend the game beyond the 18th green. Moreover, it provides a foundation for improvement, while providing access to a passionate golfing community where players come together to enjoy the sport and celebrate achievements, which will motivate them and others to play more golf.”

The SkyCaddieSGX boasts a durable, sleek design with a large 3-inch easy-to-read, transflective LCD screen that provides brilliant colour images even in the brightest sunlight. Powered by a long lasting rechargeable Lithium-ion battery, the SGX will operate for up to 14 hours of continuous play on a single charge. An innovative, dual navigation option provides easy one-handed operation and precision positioning without blocking critical screen information, eliminating errors generated by large fingers and the difficulty of using gloves on touch screens.

The SGX also includes SkyCaddie’s proprietary TruePoint Precision Positioning Technology in a high performance GPS engine with ultra-fast satellite acquisition for accuracy and reliability. The unmatched accuracy of the SGX is crucial to a golfer’s confidence, which is further enhanced by an omni-directional, high performance GPS antenna that locks quickly onto more satellites and stays locked to optimise performance and accuracy in all terrains, including under the foliage of trees.

The SGX comes with up to 30,000 pre-loaded, ground-verified maps, making it “Ready to Play” out of the box with basic green information.

Only SkyCaddie ground-verifies every course map in its library to ensure golfers have information they can trust. These are offered in easy to understand annual membership plans, with no hidden fees or variable charges, and the enhanced storage of the SGX offers the capability to maintain up to 50 full-featured courses in the SGX at one time.

The SGX also supports SkyCaddie’s growing database of courses offering Interactive HoleVue™ with Zoom capability, a ground-corrected graphics library of course maps in brilliant colours and detail. HoleVue enables the golfer to know the distance to any point on a hole, for better course management and strategy.

SkyCaddie’s patented IntelliGreen® technology showcases the exact shape of a green by automatically rotating the green to match a golfer’s angle of approach, providing all the distances needed to hit more greens and avoid three putts. The SGX also offers IntelliGreen® Pro, providing distances to major green contours, false fronts and any other point on the green, plus front, carry and back distances from any angle of attack.

Lastly, SGX offers a convenient Digital Scorecard and Stat Tracking option to track key game statistics, including greens in regulation, fairways hit, driving accuracy and distance, plus total putts. Golfers can then auto sync this information to SkyGolf’s newly created online community, Club SG Beta, storing their game data in a personal performance locker and, in turn, track key stats, learn about courses, find a teacher, learn if their equipment is helping or hurting their game and connect with other golfers.

Edmonson adds, “Growing the game by helping golfers to play better and have more fun fuels the passion that keeps us innovating. This innovation is why we’re number 1 in golf’s only growth category, and why we always have something game-changing on the horizon.”
