GolfLogix Has New Interactive GPS Golf App Features
SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – GolfLogix has introduced new Interactive GPS features providing Champion members additional tools to improve course management and play better golf. According to company president Pete Charleston, the new software was created based on feedback from the GolfLogix community of 1.5 million members.
The new automatic update features for Champions members include:
Club tracking – This patented system gives GolfLogix exclusive rights to accurately capture club distances and locations of logged clubs, overlying shots on hole imagery to produce a mapped history of every round
Aerial flyover – Similar to what’s seen on TV, the flyover provides a birds-eye video tour of each hole from tee to green
Pin position – Eliminates the need for lasers, allowing users to zoom in to get specific GPS distances to the pin or any other key points (hazards, landing zones) on any hole
Digital yardage book notes – Allows users to create and save critical notes directly on hole imagery (ex: false front 12 yards from edge of green; fairway slopes right-to-left toward water 250 yards from tee box)
Easily downloaded from www.GolfLogix.com or App Stores such as iTunes, Android Marketplace and BlackBerry App World, the software is compatible with more than 60 smartphone models.
In addition to the upgraded Champion membership which costs less than $20 annually, the free GolfLogix app provides accurate distances to the center of the green, yardage book quality imagery, scorekeeping and in-round pro-level stat tracking for more than 30,000 courses worldwide. All existing Club members will get a free round credit to try all of the new 2012 Champion member features.
And more enhancements are coming in mid-2012, when the GolfLogix app will feature instructional videos and tips from the Golf Digest teaching vault. As the software continuously captures a player’s stats during the round, personalized feedback, instant advice, tips and drills will be sent to his or her smartphone for review and comparison against previous rounds.
All GolfLogix levels include access to the Member Clubhouse, the No. 1 online golf community where millions interact through social forums, offer challenges to fellow golfers and maintain an indexed handicap. Personal web pages for each user also store performance statistics, so every round can be analyzed by fairways hit, greens in regulation, putting, shot trends and more.
