Utilizing 32 satellites that constantly circulate the earth, the Global Positioning System (GPS) is able to give you your exact time and location anywhere on the globe. All you require is a GPS device and within seconds you will know exactly where you are.

When the GPS was first being developed, it would have been hard to imagine how this system today would be used in everyday life. When he was US President, Ronald Ragan allowed the GPS to be open to the public. Before then it was only available to the military. Today, GPS technology continues to change and improve. It has now come to the point where you can use GPS technology on the golf course as your own personal, virtual caddy.

A GPS golf device will bring up electronic maps and detailed information on the course that you are playing. Some devices will even offer you tips, just like a real caddy. Furthermore, it is possible to find GPS gadgets that will track your golf ball so you will no longer lose your ball in the trees, long grass or other hazards.

With golf being such a popular game across the world, GPS golf units are becoming more and more common. In many places you are able to rent a golf cart with a GPS unit attached. There are a growing number of golf GPS units on the market today and some are outlined below.

The screen has a backlight which helps you view details in poor light or during overcast days.

The Sonocaddie Caddie Range Finder Pro System N030 is not only a mouth full to say but is also the most advanced golf GPS unit that you can find. With one click you are able to know the exact length of your drive with the unit automatically aware of the distance between you and the targets.
