After years of DMD manufacturers focusing most of their attention on their wearable GPS categories, GolfBuddy has unveiled its latest innovation with the VTX, the brand’s most advanced Handheld GPS ever which replaces the best-selling PT4 unit.

The GolfBuddy VTX is set to provide the most accurate, advanced and convenient handheld distances for Irish golfers this season.
The VTX incorporates a full colour touch screen and ultra slim, lightweight design, making it simple to use and barely noticeable to carry.  It’s compact size of just 9.5cm x 5.6 cm and less than 1.5 cm deep means it slips easily into a pocket while being large enough to convey all the necessary information for the hole. With access to GolfBuddy’s unrivalled accuracy and an industry leading database of over 38,000 pre-loaded courses the VTX is ready to be relied upon on virtually any course and will even auto update courses via Bluetooth to your phone if the venue isn’t instantly available.

Distance to front, centre and back of green, all hazards and full hole view including golfer’s position are clearly displayed to give all the information a golfer can need on the hole ahead. If you stray off course, GolfBuddy dynamic green view will give accurate distances from your angle of attack, even if it’s from a fairway across. Once you’ve saved that par (using impeccable distance control!) fill in the digital scorecard and move on to the next. With water resistance, 15hr battery life and access to both GPS and GLONASS satellites VTX provides the most reliable access to all your course information and if you ever decide you’d like a change of delivery, you can even switch the unit to male or female voice mode.

The VTX packs an enormous number of features into a well-priced handheld GPS. When combined with GolfBuddy’s unique technology and customer support, the VTX is bringing new levels of convenience, accuracy and value for money to the handheld GPS market this summer.

The GolfBuddy VTX is available in May for an RRP of €299
