The popularity of golf GPS devices has skyrocketed recently, and now it’s rare to see a golfer without some sort of navigation system or another either tucked into their bag or on their wrist. GPS systems and optical rangefinders
are similar in design and performance however the crucial difference is that rangefinders use lasers to plot distance whereas GPS relies on satellite signals.
One of the key benefits of a lot of the GPS models now is that they come pre-loaded with a number of golf courses so you can literally ‘pick up and play’.
Pre-loaded models such as the Garmin G6 come with more than 30, 000 golf courses already installed in the system. Pre-loaded models offer the same functions as subscription GPS devices, including pinpoint scoring for yourself and a fellow golfer, shot distance measurements to front, middle and back of the greens and a clever hazards-finder which helps locate any hazards which might be lurking about the course.
If you want to refine your golf play to the tee then investing in a GPS system is a wise move. Browse OnlineGolf.co.uk’s range today.
