SKYCADDIE®’S NEW SG2.5LITE GIVES ENTRY-LEVEL ACCESS TO WORLD-LEADING SKYGOLF TECHNOLOGY
You can’t trust the club, if you can’t trust the caddie.
And since SkyCaddie®’s new entry-level SG2.5Lite features the same world-leading advanced GPS technology found in the company’s top-of-the-range SG5 model, this great value little wonder is the most trustworthy caddie you can buy.
Now, UK golfers can buy the #1 rangefinder in golf for just £149.95. With unmatched reliability the SkyCaddie® SG2.5Lite (available now) automatically calculates the distance to the front, centre and back of the green per hole, simultaneously, in less than a second – on over 95% of the 18-hole golf courses in the UK.
This rechargeable, ultra-light, compact handheld device also gives the golfer the true shape of the green in a mono visual display, and features SkyCaddie®’s popular Mark Your Ball function, enabling golfers to know the distance they have hit any shot.
The SkyCaddie® SG2.5Lite is upgradeable to SkyCaddie® SG2.5 functionality, which adds powerful IntelliGreen® technology and additional target information on each hole.
SkyCaddie® has walked more golf courses than any other rangefinder in golf.
Like all SkyCaddies®, the SG2.5Lite accesses the growing SkyGolf® course mapping library, which now contains approaching 30,000 golf courses in 42 countries worldwide, including over 2,300 comprehensive, up-to-date downloadable maps for golf courses in the UK and Ireland.
SkyCaddie® also sets the accuracy benchmark in golf course mapping technology.
Only SkyCaddie® maps every single golf course on foot, with certified professionals walking the course with high-quality, survey-grade equipment triangulated with both orbital satellites and land-based positional beacons. And SkyCaddie® mappers mark up to 40 critical targets for each hole, including distances to hazard, fairway targets and layups which would not be visible with a laser rangefinder or from satellite maps.
SkyCaddie® Membership Plans keep your GPS rangefinder up to date with the latest upgrades.
SkyCaddie® provides golfers with a selection of Membership Plans, which provide access to the world-leading SkyCaddie® global golf course library. Crucially, the golfer who regularly updates his SkyCaddie® also receives free software updates; GPS updates; course updates and notifications, and has access to Favourite Course storage functionality.
This means that your SkyCaddie® SG2.5Lite is a constantly-improving piece of technology.
