Product Review: Bushnell Hybrid Laser Rangefinder and GPS Device
Bushnell Golf has answered my prayers, offering the best of both worlds in its Hybrid – a laser rangefinder and GPS device all rolled into one, handy package.
The Bushnell Hybrid is a first-of-its-kind device and marvel of modern technology. I may have exaggerated a bit with “marvel,” but not by much.
The laser shoots a flag from 400 yards away and is accurate to 1 yard. You know you’re hitting the target thanks to 5× magnification. When you’re locked and loaded on the flag, “PinSeeker with JOLT Technology” alerts you with a slight vibration.
Prefer GPS? The Hybrid comes preloaded with more than 36,000 courses in 30 countries. Like most GPS devises, the Hybrid readout provides distances from the front, center and back. Unlike many of its category contemporaries, the Hybrid gives you up to four hazard distances per hole. Automatic features include course updates, course recognition and hole advance.
Bonus: The Bushnell Golf App is included with the purchase of a Hybrid. In addition to an overhead view of the hole you’re playing, the app allows golfers to schedule tee times, record your scores, sync with the Swing Pro for game improvement or even track your steps with the pedometer if you’re interested in the fitness component of golf.
The Bushnell Hybrid is a PB&J of distance measuring devices. It’s an original and will hard to beat. Log onto bushnellgolf.com to learn more or order yours for holiday delivery today.
