Motocaddy extends GPS trolley options with new S5 model – Golf News

Motocaddy has introduced an all-new S5 GPS electric trolley – and matching S5 GPS DHC model – as the first ‘smart cart’ in the brand’s S-Series range.

The new trolleys expand Motocaddy’s GPS range to eight models across its S-Series and M-Series categories, all featuring a fully integrated GPS system across more than 40,000 golf courses worldwide.

The new S5 GPS features include the brand’s one-step folding mechanism, and its ‘click ‘n’ connect’ battery system, which not only provides cable-free connectivity, but also automatically disconnects the battery when folded and offers an access port to allow onboard charging without removal.The GPS system is built into a 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen display which features a dynamic green view of the hole being played and incorporates the ability to drag and drop the pin position, plus accurate yardages to the front, middle and back of the green.

Other features visible directly through the trolley handle includes any hazard information on the hole, score tracking and the par of each hole, a clock and round timer, the ability to measure a shot, automatic hole advancement and a battery indicator. Potential life-saving defibrillator locations at the course can also be found on the screen, as well as CPR instructions for playing partners.

When connected to the free Motocaddy GPS app, golfers can also receive a wide range of smartphone notifications direct to the screen – alerting them to a call, text message, email or range of app alerts, including WhatsApp and Facebook. A preview of message alerts can also be read on-screen. On course smartphone charging is also available using the trolley’s patented USB charging port, plus course and system updates via the built-in WiFi connection.

Owners of the new S5 GPS qualify for a free six-month trial of the Motocaddy Performance Plan. The no-obligation upgrade allows golfers to unlock a selection of hi-tech game management features. These include access to full-hole mapping with the ability to move the target for ultimate shot planning; a detailed green view showing the shape of the green and greenside hazards; advanced statistic tracking; performance analysis through the free Motocaddy GPS App; real-time course updates to ensure access to the latest mapping; and notifications of software updates with ‘on-the-go’ downloads. The normal cost of Performance Plan subscription is £49.99 a year.

The S5 GPS offers nine speed settings with speed indicator, adjustable distance control (up to 60 yards) and the brand’s EASILOCK bag-to-trolley connection system – removing the need for a lower bag strap.

Available for an extra £50, the new S5 GPS DHC takes the same features offered by the all-new S5 GPS and adds automatic downhill control that adjusts to maintain a constant speed while moving down a gradient for a smoother ride, plus all-terrain wheels and an electronic parking brake.

The new S5 GPS and S5 GPS DHC are available in graphite/blue.
RRPs: Standard Lithium battery £999.99/DHC £1049.99; Extended Lithium battery £1049.99/DHC £1099.99.
