Golfers have switched on to the idea of a free GPS app from leading trolley brand Motocaddy, with more than 13,000 downloads being made in April alone.

The Motocaddy GPS App was launched earlier this year in order to capitalise on the first Major of the season with interest in the game at its peak.

Featuring a number of easy-to-use modes, the brand’s first-ever mobile phone app can be used as a stand-alone, fully-featured mobile GPS device. Or, it can be synced with the world’s first GPS electric trolley – Motocaddy’s S5 CONNECT – launched this summer with smartphone notifications and a USB charging point. (more…)

The renewed partnership will see Motocaddy upgrade the prize presented to the winner of all 16 events this season to its featured-packed S3 PRO electric trolley (worth £499.99). Motocaddy will continue to provide support at every Tour event, which will feature in a two-hour highlights package on Sky Sports and be broadcast on several other networks around the world. (more…)

Just a few months after the successful introduction of its first Downhill Control trolley – the S1 DHCMotocaddy, the UK’s top-selling trolley brand, is adding a second model, this time to its popular compact-folding M-Series range.

The new M1 PRO DHC incorporates the same standout features as the M1 PRO, including the three-point folding system that has been developed to enable the trolley to fold over 40% smaller than standard models. But it can also maintain a constant speed while moving down a gradient – thanks to a special single motor that offers downhill braking, coupled with an electronic parking brake.

The trolley’s power output is adjusted automatically to control the rate of descent without the golfer having to make any changes to the pre-hill speed setting, while the simple to use electronic parking brake will hold its position on the steepest of slopes thanks to an innovative solenoid braking system.

Motocaddy, the UK’s top-selling trolley brand, has unveiled its most technologically advanced electric trolley ever along with a free GPS app that connects to the trolley to provide distance data plus mobile alerts.

Following extensive product development, the S5 CONNECT trolley can be synced to the app via a Bluetooth connection on any compatible smartphone; allowing the trolley’s digital display to be used in place of a conventional GPS, offering golfers front, middle and back distances to the green (in yards or metres), along with the par of the hole, clock and round timer. The digital control button works in the same way as other Motocaddy models, regulating the nine speed settings and stopping and starting as required around the course.

But, in another ground-breaking move, the new S5 CONNECT can also receive notifications alerting the golfer of an incoming call, text, email or range of app alerts including WhatsApp and Facebook. The phone can remain connected even when securely placed in the pocket of a golf bag or being charged by the trolley’s patented USB charging port. (more…)
