Revolutionary remote touch screen trolley offers ‘ultimate caddie’ experience
Motocaddy, the world’s biggest-selling electric trolley brand, has introduced the game’s first remote-controlled electric caddy with touchscreen GPS that offers golfers the ‘ultimate caddie’ experience by blending responsive control with performance-enhancing features.
The revolutionary M7 GPS – part of the award-winning Motocaddy M-Series range – features a fully integrated, super-fast GPS system with accurate green visuals; front, middle, and back distances; plus hazard information across more than 40,000 pre-loaded courses.
In another ground-breaking move, M7 GPS owners qualify for a free 12-month trial of the exclusive cellular-powered Motocaddy Performance Plan*. The upgrade allows golfers to unlock a selection of stunning 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 dynamic Green View showing the shape of the green and greenside hazards with drag and drop pin positions; score and 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.
It also incorporates all the benefits of the award-winning M7 REMOTE model – winner of the MyGolfSpy ‘Most Wanted’ award for the last three years – including a rechargeable handset, removable anti-tip rear wheel, and the brand’s cutting-edge Downhill Control technology.
“The new M7 GPS delivers the ultimate caddie experience to give users an edge and seeing how popular the M7 REMOTE was with American golfers, we’re confident that it will be a big hit,” said Motocaddy Marketing Director, Oliver Churcher. “It offers everything a golfer needs to transport their clubs around the course effortlessly, while providing pinpoint yardages and GPS mapping through its super-responsive touchscreen.
“The revolutionary GPS technology pioneered by Motocaddy in 2017 has advanced a great deal in recent years. Today, our cellular-powered Performance Plan combines with the most responsive remote-control technology on the market to take the trolley experience to an exciting new level,” he added.
The M7 GPS includes a super responsive, crystal-clear 3.5” LCD touchscreen display usable in all weather conditions, even while wearing a glove. Other features include a clock and round timer, an indication of the par and handicap of each hole, shot distance measurement, automatic hole advancement, score tracking and a battery indicator.
The pocket-sized remote-control handset can move the caddy forward, left, right and in reverse, plus pause and resume. It can also switch instantly from remote to manual control mode and back again if the user wants to control it from the handle like a regular electric caddy via the speed button. In addition to including automatic Downhill Control technology, there is an emergency stop and a handset lock function. The LCD touchscreen also includes an additional battery meter indicating the capacity of the handset.
When connected to the free Motocaddy GPS app, golfers can also receive a wide range of optional 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.
A smartphone can be securely placed in a golf bag pocket and charged using the caddy’s patented USB charging port. In addition to the cellular and Bluetooth® capabilities, other connectivity features include super-fast Over‑the‑Air course and system updates via the built-in WiFi connection.
Equipped with a wider wheel-base than standard M-Series models, the M7 GPS also boasts all terrain tyres for impressive handling across the course. Like all Motocaddy M-Series caddies, it also folds down easily to a compact size for easy storage and transportation.
Powered by a next generation High Power 28.8V system, the M7 GPS has nine speed settings, with speed indicator, plus a super-lightweight waterproof Lithium battery (IP66 water and dust rating) that can be charged without being removed. It also features the Motocaddy’s exclusive EASILOCK™ bag-to-caddy connection system that removes the need for a lower bag strap.
