Callaway has added to its range of distance measuring devices with a Hybrid Laser-GPS model that incorporates the two popular methods golfers use to map their way around the course.
Combining the precision of a laser with the at a glance measurement information of GPS the Hybrid packs everything you need into a compact device that still weighs in at just 220 grams.
Using Callaway's Pin Acquisition Technology (PAT), the laser can locate and lock on to flags up to 300 yards away with accuracy to within one yard and also offers 6 times magnification for multiple-target measurements up to 1,000 yards away.
The GPS function gives accurate distance measurements to the front, centre and back of the greens as well as layup and carry yardages to hazards and doglegs. The device is pre-loaded with yardage information for more than 30,000 global golf courses and there are no download or subscription fees.
Joining the Hybrid Laser-GPS is a Pro version of the Callaway 300 Laser Rangefinder. The 300 Pro features 'Slope' technology that measures the angle of incline or decline to the target and uses this to calculate the slope-adjusted distance.
