GOLFBUDDY VS4 VOICE GPS: THE ULTIMATE WEARABLE TECH3 min read


Posted on: 23rd Sep 2014

GolfBuddy – the pioneer of voice golf GPS in Europe – has launched golf’s most versatile and wearable audio unit to date with the sensational new VS4.

For golfers looking for a small, light, easy-to-use golf GPS that can be worn any way they choose on the course, the GolfBuddy VS4 is unrivalled.

It comes supplied with a bespoke designed wrist strap – turning it instantly into a ‘watch’ GPS. The VS4 simply clicks in place, leaving the user to either view distances on screen or press the facia button to hear it talk!

It also comes supplied with a hard clip-on case, which means the VS4 can be attached easily to a belt, shirt pocket or cap.

And in a new development, two additional accessories are available which make the VS4 the most versatile golf GPS there is.

Firstly, a retractable cord and mount (RRP £19.95) is available which allows the golfer to clip the unit to a belt loop, or golf bag karabina and pull it closer whenever they need a distance reading.

And secondly, an innovative flip-up leather case (RRP £15.95) lets the golfer simply lift up the unit to see the screen when it’s clipped to a belt – a big plus for any golfer whose waistline might normally hinder sight of the unit! (GolfBuddy VS4 has a flip-screen mode which turns the display 180 degrees to make the most of the new leather case).

Some of the key GolfBuddy VS4 technical specifications include:

  • Visual and Audio distances given
  • Dynamic Green ViewTM with green shape display
  • Large numbers only display
  • Shot Distance Measurement
  • Auto Course & Hole Recognition
  • Distances to Front, Middle, Back
  • Mute button
  • Yards/Metres selection
  • Manual hole change option
  • Multilingual
  • Preloaded with free courses & no annual fees
  • White/Gold or Black/Red colour choices

Dynamic Green View™ technology always shows front, middle and back distances directly from the golfer’s angle of approach, however wayward they might have been!

And 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.

The company’s accuracy is unrivalled. 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. GolfBuddy is one of only two brands that commit to mapping courses on foot.

And as with all GolfBuddy products, there are no expensive annual membership fees and no hidden costs to download courses or access premium features – which can cost up to £45 a year extra with other brands.

The VS4 is ready to go right out of the box with access to over 8,000 courses in Europe and North Africa and over 37,000 globally in more than 130 countries. GolfBuddy VS4 has an RRP of £159.95.

GolfBuddy is based in La Palma, Ca, with product development and course data management centres in Korea, one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-quality electronic products.

GolfBuddy is a Corporate Partner with the PGAs of Europe as its ‘official handheld GPS rangefinder’.
