(RIDGELAND, Miss.) — SkyGolf, maker of SkyCaddie, the most trusted Rangefinder in Golf, today announced that the SkyCaddie SX500 has received the Best Handheld GPS award in the MyGolfSpy 2020 GPS Buyers Guide followed by the SkyCaddie SX400.
In 2018, SkyGolf introduced the 20th anniversary limited edition SX500, with the fastest processor, best battery life and the largest and most vivid display in the industry, the SX500 quickly became recognized for its outstanding functionality and powerful features. My Golf Spy awarded the SX500 its “Most Wanted” status and it was validated by tour professionals with five wins and several top ten finishes on the European Senior Staysure Tour in 2019.
Several of the SkyCaddie SX500 features that stood out to the MyGolfSpy testers include; fast course connectivity, outstanding visuals, club customization feature, durable case, and long battery life.
With SkyCaddie, unlike other GPS rangefinders, there is no waiting for an entire course library to be updated. You receive almost immediate access to the thousands of updates made each year to the course library. Such course updates are posted daily so you get real-time updates of your favorite courses each time you connect wirelessly via Wi-Fi. Only SkyCaddie walks each course to record thousands of points with sub-meter precision because we know that you cannot trust your club if you cannot trust your distances. Knowing and trusting critical distances lets you manage your game and eliminate those high scores from your scorecard.
“We’re happy to see both the SkyCaddie SX500 and SX400 at the top of the MyGolfSpy Best Handheld GPS award list,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyGolf Chief Operating Officer & SVP of Sales. “SkyGolf continues to pioneer the use of innovative, technology-based products to help golfers improve their game and have more fun and it’s great to receive validation of our technology from MyGolfSpy’s independent, unbiased test results.”
The robust features of the SkyCaddie SX series are easily tapped with a large intuitive touch screen and a host of automated features such as Auto-Course Selection, Auto-Hole Advance and Auto-Zoom, making it almost "touch-free" from the parking lot to the 19th hole. The large HD display combined with HD quality course graphics, only available from SkyCaddie, provide the best view of the most-reliable information in the game to allow you to play your best golf.
The powerful processors of the SX500 and SX400 allow SkyCaddie to feature Dynamic HoleVue, which automatically re-orients the entire golf hole from your position to the green as you progress from the tee. So, by leveraging SkyCaddie’s patented IntelliGreen technology, golfers can now see the entire hole from their point-of-view to quickly acquire distances to avoid intervening hazards to plot the best strategy for every shot... only from SkyCaddie!
The SkyCaddie SX500 and SX400 both come in a highly water-resistant design to withstand the elements on the course. And, both models allow the golfer to track the club, location and distance of each shot in real-time as you play. You’ll know how far you hit every club in your bag, resulting in better game management and lower scores. Improve your game with detailed, post-round analysis using SkyGolf 360 where all your game data is stored, analyzed and displayed in easy to see formats and graphs to track your progress and identify areas for improvement.
