GolfLogix, the Number 1 app in Golf, Raises the Bar Once Again with New 3D Flyover and Slope Distance Features Adding to GolfLogix’s industry leading GPS technology, two new features arm golfers of all skill levels with even more valuable information designed to lower scores and increase performance
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (August 2, 2022) – GolfLogix, already the world leader in app technology for golfers, once again sets new boundaries with two extraordinary new features: 3D Flyovers, which allows the user to see the shape and elevation of every hole from tee to green and GPS Distances with Slope that utilizes elevation data for accurate slope distance to any point on the course.
The drone-like 3D Flyover component offers golfers the opportunity to strategize on how to best attack any given hole, based on ability level, by showing a true representation of their ball in flight, using their own personal club distances for their tee shots and then their approach shots, so that they can see what lies ahead before they address the ball. The birds-eye flight perspective will remind users of the computer-generated renderings they have become accustomed to seeing on television during professional golf events.
In addition to the ground-breaking GPS based distance capabilities GolfLogix users have already become accustomed to, the new version showing slope truly takes all the guesswork out of determining shot selection and landing areas by using detailed elevation data to show “Plays Like” distances for uphill and downhill shots. The innovative new feature was created by measuring millions of elevation points on thousands of courses worldwide.
“As part of our core mission, we continually challenge ourselves to break barriers with our capabilities,” said GolfLogix President and Co-Founder Pete Charleston. “With the new dynamic aerial perspectives and even greater detailed elevation and slope measurements we’ve added, GolfLogix users have access to the most advanced data available at over 38,000 courses around the world.”
As with all existing capabilities on the GolfLogix app, both new features can be muted in order to remain compliant with USGA rules.
