Introducing the new, improved Motocaddy GPS app

The upgraded Motocaddy GPS app has launched today!

Available on both iOS and Android devices, the Motocaddy app is a free to use GPS rangefinder that utilises the world’s #1 database of GPS-enabled golf courses to provide key distances, hazard information and hole data for over 40,000 golf courses worldwide. Since its introduction two years ago, the original Motocaddy GPS app has been downloaded by more than 85,000 golfers and used for over 1,000,000 rounds globally.

      Loaded with features

      The new app has been completely redesigned and now includes a wide-range of visual and user enhancements; lifesaving AED & CPR features (UK & Ireland only); brand new mapping for reduced data, battery usage and quicker loading; plus statistical tracking to help golfers gain further insight into their game.

      Notable new features include:

      • Improved user interface, modern design
      • 3D course map & aerial hole flyovers (free registration required)
      • 2D course map with optional distance overlay
      • Vector course graphics for minimal data & battery usage, plus quicker loading
      • AED locator & CPR instructions (UK & Ireland only)
      • Tee box selection for accurate course information
      • Score tracking & Statistics for post-round analysis

      As previously, the app is compatible with all Motocaddy CONNECT trolley models and will also offer forward compatibility with future Motocaddy products.

      Potential Lifesaver

      In a world first, the latest Motocaddy GPS app can indicate the availability and location of an on-course AED (Automated External Defibrillator). The app also provides golfers with CPR instructions to administer to anyone suffering a cardiac arrest whilst playing golf. So far, more than 700 golf clubs around the UK and Ireland have registered the location of defibrillators within the Motocaddy Defibrillator Database and we plan to expand this feature into further countries over the coming months.

      The Motocaddy app is free to download from the Apple App Store and on Google Play.

       

      Information for existing app users


      Registration
      All app users are encouraged to register when prompted to make full use of the extensive range of app features. Registered users receive a number of benefits including quicker start-up, plus access to 3D maps and hole flyover features. Existing app registrations are not transferred into the new app.


      Connectivity
      Motocaddy CONNECT trolley owners will need to re-pair the app with their device. The process is incredibly easy and can be initiated via the "Pair Device" button on the app home screen. Pairing should take less than a minute, but it is recommended to pair your device and check for any firmware updates (via the 'My Device' button) prior to getting to the first tee. Existing pairings are not transferred into the new app.
