Regardless of whether you’re an avid golfer or one who just likes to tee off once a month at the greens, GPSGolfShot is able to cater to your needs. This is not a new way to strike the ball, but is instead an application that will be made available to Verizon Wireless customers on an exclusive basis, relying on GPS technology to help golfers navigate through new and familiar golf courses. Knowledge is (potential) power, and applying such knowledge ought to give you an edge over the rest of the competition if done in the correct manner as you will hold all the relevant information about the course on your handsets before you even hit the ball once.
Just how accurate is GPSGolfShot? This software is able to offer real-time yardage readings on nearly 10,000 professionally-mapped golf courses across the US, helping you making fast and right decisions before reaching the club. Not only that, you will be able to be more efficient on the course as play can be sped up by removing the need to seek out distance markers or to pace off yardage. All course layouts will be updated constantly, and the database will also feature information on new courses thanks to frequent updates. After all, most golfers these days do carry their handsets with them wherever they go, and GPSGolfShot helps you save even more by doing away with the need to tote around an additional expensive range finder or other gadget.
Other interesting features of the GPSGolfShot also include the ability to voice out distances with the touch of a button, allowing you to concentrate on the game without having to squint your eyes to adjust itself so that you can make out the writing on the screen under the bright sun. The “Measure My Shot” function enables golfers to accurately measure just how far drivers or irons travel, giving them crucial information on how to play the next shot. With summer in the US about to hit full swing, Verizon Wireless has made GPSGolfShot available on most of their handsets, among them the LG enV 3, LG Versa, Samsung SCH-u410, SCH-a870 and SCH-a930. Interested parties can get a copy of GPSGolfShot in the Media Center or Get It Now stores under the Download This! and Sports categories, retailing for $1.99 per round or $3.99 per month for unlimited use. Those who can’t get enough of golfing all year round can settle for the annual subscription that is going for $34.99.
