Motocaddy are launching their most technologically advanced Electric Golf Trolley to date that includes a FREE GPS mobile & tablet app which connects to the trolley providing distance data and mobile alerts.
The new S5 CONNECT Electric Golf Trolley can be synced to the app via a Bluetooth connection on any compatible smartphone. This allows the S5’s digital display to be used in place of a conventional GPS device, offering front, middle and back distances to the green, along with par of the hole, clock and a round timer. The S5 features nine speed settings and stopping and starting as required around the course.
Motocaddy S5 has a full range of notifications that come straight through to your mobile device once connected to the free app. Incoming calls, text messages, emails and even WhatsApp and Facebook alerts. The phone can remain connected even when securely placed in the pocket of a golf bag or being charged by the S5’s USB charging port.
Tony Webb, Motocaddy’s Managing Director has this to say about the S5 trolley:
“The S5 CONNECT is at the forefront of golf technology and we’re proud to be pioneering the next generation of electric trolleys,”
“It acts as the ultimate caddy for any golfer out on the course, as it carries your bag and gives you accurate yardages. The first iPhone was launched a decade ago and since then a lot has changed in golf technology. We’re certainly not encouraging golfers to keep checking their phones during play, on the contrary, we believe the S5 CONNECT could actually reduce phone use because it tells you all you need to know and can be pre-set to let you focus on your game.”
S5 CONNECT comes with all the great features of any Motocaddy S -Series Trolley.
- Soft-touch ergonomic handle
- Streamlined battery tray
- Super-fast QUIKFOLD mechanism
- Quick release wheels
- Adjustable Distance Control (up to 50 yards)
- EASILOCK bag-to-trolley connect system
Motocaddy’s first-ever mobile phone app features a number of easy-to-use modes and can be used without syncing to the S5 CONNECT trolley.
There’s over 36,000 courses worldwide accessible with overhead maps, detailed yardages, last shot distances and detailed greenside information.
