GolfBuddy Sets Spring Launch
March 9, 2011. GolfBuddy, the first GPS rangefinder company to offer preloaded courses with no annual membership fees, has announced the launch of the next generation GolfBuddy World, an easy-to-navigate GPS rangefinder with a high-resolution, color touch-screen. The GolfBuddy World was first introduced at the 2011 PGA Merchandise Show.
The Golf Buddy
GolfBuddy World has the capacity to hold 40,000 courses in its internal memory, and comes preloaded with more than 35,000 courses worldwide. Like all GolfBuddy products, the World is fully operational right out of the box and doesn't have any subscription fees.
It's high resolution, color touch screen is easy to navigate, with or without a golf glove, and also features anti-glare technology that allows the image to remain completely visible at all times, even in direct sunlight.
The GolfBuddy World displays a full layout view of each hole plus an overhead view from the tee box to the green. Golfers can carefully plan their shots with quick and accurate measurements to all targets and hazards on the hole. By using the innovative Touch Point Technology, one touch of the screen provides an instant yardage reading from the ball to the green.
The GolfBuddy World is packed with a host of other features to help maximize and track your game:
• Digital Scorecard: Allows you to record scores for up to 4 players during each round;
• Statistical Analysis: Lets you keep track of your stats during a round including fairways hit, greens in regulation, average putts per round and sand saves;
• Shock and Water Resistant Casing: Built with impact-shielding side bumpers, and a high tech rubber coating for the body;
• 50 Channel Satellite Reception: Quickly and automatically recognizes the course and hole you are playing. Greatly reduces lost signals even during heavy cloud conditions;
• Rechargeable Lithium-ion Battery.
"The GolfBuddy World continues our progression of offering golfers the most feature-rich products in the market without any long-term commitments or additional fees," said Harry Jung, president of GolfBuddy. "Similar to last year's highly successful Platinum, the GolfBuddy World comes preloaded with over 35,000 courses worldwide, offering golfers more playing options than any other product on the market."
Additionally, one touch of the screen allows the user to zoom-in to the green and adjust the pin placement to an exact position on the green. The display features the actual shape of the green, allowing the golfer to calculate exact yardage on approach shots resulting in greater confidence and precision.
"There is no other product on the market that can compare with the GolfBuddy World, when it comes to features, price, performance and reliability," added Jung.
"We employ hundreds of professional course surveyors from all over the world who carefully map-out every hole on every course," continued Jung. "That data, combined with our 50 channel satellite system, makes the World extremely accurate."
