The GolfBuddy World Platinum is designed for use by the golfers of all skill levels. With its full function touch screen, users can point to anywhere on the course and attain distance to and from that point. The World Platinum presents a dynamic and simple to use interface. The World Platinum is both shock and water resistant.Take the guesswork out of your golf game with the GolfBuddy World Platinum, a true GPS rangefinder with automatic course and hole recognition. The Golf Buddy World Platinum–which comes preloaded with 40,000 courses from around the world–helps you gain confidence on the course by telling you exactly how far and where to go with every shot. The unit is equipped with a full-color, high-resolution, outdoor-visible touchscreen that gives you the exact distance to greens, bunkers, lakes, lay-up points, trees, and more. The view of the green is dynamic, meaning the Golf Buddy World Platinum changes the shape of the green depending on your angle of approach. Need to know whether the trees on the right are in play, or whether the far bunker is within range of your 7-iron? Just grab the Golf Buddy World Platinum and it provides all the information you need. Users can easily switch back and forth from the full layout mode (with zoom in and zoom out options)–which helps them gauge the distance to any point throughout the course–and the standard numbers mode, which displays the distance to the front, center, and back of the green as well as key target points. You can also customize your own target points. Plus, there’s no need to aim the GPS to obtain distance information, as the GolfBuddy World Platinum automatically recognizes your surroundings. Just turn it on and play.
The GolfBuddy World Platinum automatically displays the distance to the green and calculates the distance to sand traps, ponds, and other hazards.
How the GolfBuddy World Platinum Works
The GolfBuddy World Platinum offers a number of features that help you take your golf game to the next level. The four-player score tracking feature, for example, lets you record countless rounds, and includes tags for the course and date. This helps you calculate your handicap and track your progress over time. The GolfBuddy World Platinum also calculates the actual distance you hit with each club–a critical component for lowering your scores. Just mark your starting position, hit your shot, and walk to where the ball landed. And to help you improve your course management skills, the GolfBuddy World Platinum tracks your distance from the green (front, center, and back) at all times and the distance of all in-play hazards. The unit lists every item that can affect your play, even if you can’t see it from your present location. The GolfBuddy World Platinum even provides the lay-up (approach) and carry distances for each hazard, so you’ll know how to effectively bypass the ponds and sand traps that lay in wait.
Perhaps the coolest feature, however, is the automatic course recognition. Rather than requiring you to sort through thousands of pre-loaded courses, the GolfBuddy World Platinum automatically locates your course and hole the minute you turn it on. This helps you keep your mind focused on your game rather than your GPS unit. Other features include a shock- and water-resistant case, 50-channel satellite reception, multiple language recognition, and a high-capacity lithium-ion rechargeable battery. The GolfBuddy World Platinum–which doesn’t require any annual or course download fees–comes with a USB data cable, belt clip, and swivel holster.
