The GolfBuddy World uses many features of the World Platinum and also adds easy to use push-buttons to allow the user to quickly navigate through the unit’s interface. Designed to give maximum speed of use, World retains many of the previous features including: 40,000 course memory, Intuitive TFT touch screen, TouchPoint instant distance measurement, Direct Overhead Imaging for complete hole layout views, Pro Play game statistics recording & Stableford scoring, Pre-loaded global courses, Touch ‘N’ Move Flag, Dynamic Green Approach, a lifetime of fee-free, no subscription worldwide golf course maps.
With a bright, anti-glare 2.7inch LED screen, the GolfBuddy World offers golfers a single ‘green view’ gives exact distances to the front, middle and back of the green, while the World’s smaller size makes it more comfortable in the hand – especially with lady and junior golfers – and easier to slip into a pocket.
GolfBuddy European general manager, John Ennis, said: “We noticed that there are two different types of GPS users. There are those golfers who want a GPS device loaded with the maximum technology we can provide. Others want their GolfBuddy to simply give them the best information as they play and prefer to compare historical playing statistics online. The World Platinum is a larger, pure touchscreen model and is ideal for the golfer who wants their historical playing statistics at their fingertips, or who wants to record scores for all the players in their group during a round. World gives access to GolfBuddy’s menu system via buttons rather than through the touchscreen and saves scoring and shot details purely for the round being played, although the data can be stored online through the GolfBuddy Manager software.”
