The new Arccos Caddie Rangefinder replaces the Plays Like Distance in-app feature. In addition to precise yardages, Arccos Caddie Rangefinder will provide golfers with club recommendations from Golf’s Smartest Caddie, so they can truly trust the club they pull for every shot.
The Arccos Caddie Rangefinder takes into account wind (speed, direction and gusts), temperature, humidity and altitude. The altitude calculation is personalized to each Arccos Caddie user based on any altitude differential between their home course and the one they’re playing.
The Front, Center, and Back screen displays the following information:
- Left Column displays white numbers which are the raw GPS distances, not adjusted for environmental factors
- Center Column displays green numbers which are the GPS distances that account for wind speed, wind direction, temperature, humidity, and altitude
- Right Column displays green numbers which are the adjusted GPS distances that account for wind gusts when a gust may impact the shot
“The calculations that we do as caddies – uphill, downhill, wind direction, temperature and even altitude – it takes us a few minutes to figure all that stuff out. Now the Arccos Caddie Rangefinder is gonna do that for you in real-time, it’s amazing!” said Ted Scott, PGA TOUR Caddie.
