SkyCaddie adds wifi capability to SGX

There is no resting on laurels in the competitive age of technology, which is why SkyCaddie has made improvements to the rangefinder that earned gold in Golf Digest's 2011 Hot List for GPS devices.

The SGXw has added wifi capability (hence the w) to its device, thus simplifying the process of downloading courses (and accommodating course updates), either in your home, at your business, at the golf course, or, when applicable, even utilizing a smart phone to gain Internet access.

RangeVue is another new feature, using pre-set yardage arcs (shown in the image), instantly providing yardage to various points on the course. In this regard, SkyCaddie claims an advantage over even laser rangefinders, providing "more information, faster and more reliably...without aiming or requiring line of sight."

Another relatively new feature offered by SkyCaddie is a trade-in program. Trade in any SkyCaddie or Bushnell laser rangefinder or even golf clubs to secure a discount on a new SkyCaddie.
