GolfBuddy was the first to offer a GPS rangefinder preloaded with 35,000 courses worldwide and not charging a yearly subscription. Their latest device, previewed at January’s PGA Merchandise Show is the Voice – a speaking rangefinder giving yardage to the front, back and middle of the green.
It’s tiny, the same diameter as a golf ball, 1.68″. It’s light, about an ounce. It clips on the brim of a golf hat or belt and works with the push of a single button. A small screen also displays the yardage plus hole and being played and its par.
Priced at $179 the Voice comes with a silicon carrying case, data cable and wall charger.
