GolfBuddy Advanced Voice+ Audio GPS Launched

By: Golf Shake | Fri 01 Feb 2013

golfbuddyGolfBuddy, the first golf GPS rangefinder manufacturer to offer pre-loaded courses with no annual membership fees, has announced the launch of its highly anticipated new GolfBuddy Voice+ unit.

Boasting dual watch and GPS functionality, this next generation model of its award-winning GolfBuddy Voice was introduced at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando FL.

Building on the groundbreaking technological innovation of the original GolfBuddy Voice product, the enhanced Voice+ unit measures only 1.7”x1.7”x 0.4” and adds several exciting new features, while remaining as easy-to-use and accurate as the original GolfBuddy Voice.

Packaged with a comfortable silicone wristband to provide the user with greater comfort, usability and wearability - the new Voice+ performs excellently as a watch or GPS rangefinder on the course.

Additionally, the Voice+ features an 11 hour re-chargeable lithium battery, to offer the golfer two full rounds of use on a single charge. 

Integrated enhancements to the Voice+ software also enable the unit to display three distances - to the front, centre and back of the green - simultaneously on the main screen.

This improvement allows the user to quickly access all distances visually or through its audio talking functionality, whether it's worn on a hat, belt, shirt pocket or wrist.

“The GolfBuddy Voice+ is another example of our commitment to offering golfers the most feature-rich products in the market without any long-term subscription or membership commitments or additional fees,” said Harry Jung, president of GolfBuddy.

“Following on from last year’s highly successful Voice product, the Voice+ provides golfers with superb accuracy via the latest GPS technology, features and benefits to ensure a great day on the golf course.”

Like the Voice, the enhanced Voice+ actually speaks yardages with the press of a button, stores up to 40,000 courses in its memory, and comes pre-loaded with over 36,000 free golf courses from around the World.

And the Dynamic Green technology always shows front, middle and back distances directly from the golfer's angle of approach, however wayward they might have been! This ensures that GolfBuddy distances are more accurate than those brands that only display static front, middle and back of the green distances in a line from the centre of the fairway.

As with all GolfBuddy products, there are no annual membership fees, and no hidden costs to download courses.  The Voice+ is ready to go right out of the box.

The Voice+ also features the ability to immediately change from yard to meter readings, tells time via a digital clock, comes pre-loaded with 12 different languages and uses GolfBuddy's Auto Course & Hole Recognition technology - which means it always knows exactly what hole and course you're playing.

Weighing just an ounce and measuring only 1.7" wide, the multi-lingual GolfBuddy Voice+ benefits from all the technical development that has made GolfBuddy the clear global leader in the development of innovative measuring devices for golfers.

Around the world, GolfBuddy uses teams of expert mappers to walk courses and create ground-verified data maps that give supreme accuracy. This dedication to accuracy gives golfers the most reliable distance readings available.

The GolfBuddy Voice+ will have an RRP of £159/€199.
