Motocaddy have unveiled what they say is their “most technologically advanced electric trolley ever”, along with a free GPS app that connects to the trolley to provide distance data plus mobile alerts.

The S5 Connect trolley can be synced to the app via a Bluetooth
connection on any compatible smartphone; allowing the trolley’s digital
display to be used in place of a conventional GPS, offering golfers
front, middle and back distances to the green, along with the par of the
hole, clock and round timer.

The brand’s first-ever mobile app is available to download now from the Apple and Google Play app stores.

The new S5 Connect can also receive notifications alerting you of any
incoming calls, texts, emails or a range of app alerts, including
WhatsApp and Facebook.

The phone can remain connected even when securely placed in the
pocket of a golf bag or whilst being charged by the trolley’s patented
USB charging port.

As well as the innovative ‘smart’ technology, the S5 Connect has the
modern look and features found on the latest S-Series models.

These include a soft-touch ergonomic handle (above), low-profile, quick release wheels, Motocaddy’s
super-fast Quikfold mechanism and its Easilock bag-to-trolley
connection system, while both battery options come with a full five-year
warranty.

Motocaddy have partnered with a world-renowned golf GPS
mapping company in the United States to provide some 36,000 courses
worldwide, accessed through the ‘Play Now’ mode on the app.

Overhead maps and detailed yardages, distance of the last shot and
dedicated greenside information are all available, as well as ‘Shot
Planning Control’, which allows you to pinpoint how far any target is on
the course.

proud to be pioneering the next generation of electric trolleys,” said
