How a GPS Golf Unit Can Help Your Golf Game

Jul 28, 2008
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite navigation system that offers reliable positioning, timing services and navigation on a constant basis and is freely available to every one. All you need is a GPS receiver and you will be able to get the correct time and location.

In the initial stages of development, no one could have imagined how GPS would eventually become part of our everyday lives and how it would be used in some amazing ways. As GPS was being opened for use to the public by former US President Ronald Reagan, he would never have guessed that a GPS golf system would one day be developed. Well, the GPS golf systems are now available and becoming more and more popular

While playing golf, a GPS golf system makes available maps and any other information about the golf course that is important to help you with playing that particular course. The systems can also track golf balls with implanted trackers in them and it is therefore virtually impossible to lose your ball.

As you can imagine, these digital caddies are quickly becoming more widespread. As a matter of fact, while renting the golf cart one can rent the GPS golf system as well. For golfers or persons who want to try out the system to see how it works, there are some options that they could buy and which are discussed below.

The Garmin GolfLogix System is a robust and precise unit that is also very user friendly. One of its main features is that it can identify the hazards that are facing you on any particular hole. These hazards include: Front, Center & Back of Green; Bunkers; Water; Lay-ups; and, Carries. The screen advances automatically to all of the targets on the golf course so there are no buttons to push or lasers to point during your round. The system includes a backlight screen that allows you to view information easily even when playing in poor or overcast light.

The most advanced system on the market is the Sonocaddie Caddie Range Finder Pro System N030. The system is palm sized and portable. It keeps you aware of the distance from the targets while on course - with one click of the button you know exactly the length of your drive. The system will also let you know of any hazards and trees. The gadget stores information regarding many courses and you can get further information by downloading a particular course to the system.

For people with windows enabled phones, all you have to do is buy GPS Golf Pro. Since the device is Bluetooth enabled and GPS receiver equipped, it simply networks with the phone and there you have your GPS golf system. It's as easy as that.

For all those interested in improving their golf handy cap then a Golf GPS device should be on top of their list. It also makes a perfect gift idea if you need a present for a golf lover. With this amazing technology you are almost guaranteed to cut strokes from your game.
