When it comes to golf technology, you'll do well to find a brand who are working as hard as Motocaddy to add innovative new products to their collection.
Their new range of electric trolleys for 2021 proves that, as they see the launch of the world's first cellular enabled trolleys to make sure that you stay connected with the outside world even when on the golf course. They have also expanded their existing range of GPS trolleys from two to five, giving more golfers the chance to improve their scoring without having to add additional devices.
The cellular capability will be available from this summer in all M5 GPS and M-Tech models, giving golfers access to more advanced course mapping, real-time updates and performance tracking data straight to the trolley screen.
The trolleys will feature a built-in sim card and aerial antenna so that they work in the same way as a smartphone would, and this has already been included into M5 GPS trolleys from 2020 so that existing owners do not miss out.
It's another world first for golf trolleys and we're really excited to build on the impressive features already offered by the M5 GPS model.
The M5 GPS raised the bar last year, with its user-friendly and ultra-responsive touchscreen technology combining with the unprecedented reliability offered by our M-Series range. Cellular connectivity is something entirely new for electric trolleys and with real-time data connectivity, the opportunities for future development are endless.

The new cellular features will be available through an annual subscription package, unlocking features including full hole mapping, greenside hazards, scoring statistics and round summaries.
