Motocaddy reveal M7 GPS, a remote-controlled electric golf trolley with touchscreen GPS.
Part of the award-winning, compact-folding M-Series range, M7 GPS will be among the best electric golf trolleys 2023. It features a fully-integrated, super-fast GPS system with accurate green views, front, middle, and back distances, and hazard information across more than 40,000 pre-loaded courses worldwide.
Motocaddy say the new model offers golfers the ‘ultimate caddie experience by blending responsive control with performance-enhancing features’.
Anyone who buys an M7 GPS will also qualify for a 12-month free trial (no obligation, £49.99 afterwards) of the Motocaddy Performance Plan, allowing you to unlock a selection of hi-tech game management features, including full-hole mapping with movable target, and a detailed dynamic green view showing the shape of the green and greenside hazards with drag and drop pin positions. You can also access score and statistic tracking performance analysis through the free Motocaddy GPS App, real-time course updates to ensure the latest mapping, and notifications of software updates with ‘on-the-go’ downloads.
M7 GPS features loads of the same tech found in the award-winning M7 Remote, one of the best Motocaddy golf trolleys, including a rechargeable handset, removable anti-tip rear wheel, and the brand’s cutting-edge Downhill Control technology.
“The new M7 GPS delivers the ultimate caddie experience to give users an edge,” Oliver Churcher, Motocaddy Marketing Director, told us. “It offers everything a golfer needs to transport their clubs around the course effortlessly, whilst providing pinpoint yardages and GPS mapping through its super-responsive touchscreen.
“The revolutionary electric trolley GPS technology pioneered by Motocaddy in 2017 has advanced a great deal in recent years. Today, our cellular-powered Performance Plan combines with the most responsive remote-control technology on the market to take the trolley experience to an exciting new level.”
M7 GPS includes a super responsive, crystal-clear 3.5” LCD touchscreen display that is usable in all weather conditions, even whilst wearing a glove. Other features include a clock and round timer, an indication of the par and handicap of each hole, shot distance measurement, automatic hole advancement, score tracking and a battery indicator.
Potential life-saving defibrillator (AED) locations at the course can be found on the screen, as well as crucial CPR instructions, which is why we partnered with Motocaddy for our Drive for Defibs campaign.
When connected to the free Motocaddy GPS app, golfers can also receive a wide range of optional smartphone notifications direct to the screen – alerting them to a call, text message, email or range of app alerts, including WhatsApp and Facebook. A preview of message alerts can also be read on-screen.
A smartphone can be securely placed in a golf bag pocket and charged using the trolley’s patented USB charging port.
The pocket-sized remote-control handset can move the trolley forward, left, right, and in reverse, plus pause and resume. It can also switch instantly from remote to manual control mode and back again if the user wants to control it from the handle like a regular trolley via the speed button. In addition to including automatic Downhill Control technology, there is an emergency stop and a handset lock function. The LCD touchscreen also includes an additional battery meter indicating the capacity of the handset.
The M7 GPS has a wider wheelbase than standard M-Series models and uses all-terrain tires. It also folds down easily to a compact size.
Powered by a next-gen and high-power 28.8V system, the M7 GPS has nine speed settings with a speed indicator, plus a super-lightweight waterproof Ultra Lithium battery that can be charged without being removed. It also features Motocaddy’s exclusive Easilock connection system.
