Callaway Golf Company’s new upro mx+ golf GPS device is now available and is one of the better range finders on the market. Callaway says the upro mx+ 9$249) is the only golf GPS on the market that offers ProMode, offering golfers aerial imagery and video flyovers of each hole. Each device comes with access to free and unlimited ProMode course downloads.
“The upro mx+ device is the result of extensive listening to what golfers want out of a distance measuring device out on the course,” said Dr. Alan Hocknell, senior vice president of research & development for Callaway Golf. “Active listening was followed by a lot of hard work to deliver an easy to use, meaningful experience that will help golfers see more and know more out on the course, and give them the confidence to hit better shots.”
A compact, three-ounce device boasting a full-color, 2.2″ LCD touch screen, the upro mx+’s updated software also features Anypoint Technology, which Hocknell said helps golfers strategically plan their upcoming shots. The Anypoint Technology feature shows yardage to any location selected on the hole, and the yardage left from that location to the green. Additionally, a Digital Scorecard allows golfers to track their scores and basic golf stats on the device, including fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts during each round.
Callaway has also enhanced features on its uxplore web site, www.callawaygolf.com/uxplore. UPRO users tracking performance on the device’s digital scorecard will be able to automatically upload their scores and stats to the uxplore web site to view their historical performance and compare to other golfers in the community. Golfers will also continue to have access to all 25,000 courses in Callaway’s online database to help get ready to play at a new course. These features are available to upro mx+ GPS owners and those who register for free on the site and want to input their scores manually.
