There is a Comprehensive CourseView map feature with over 43,000 preloaded courses so you'll have access to intricate detail of the course. You can pan and zoom or get a bird's-eye view of each hole. Then, the Improved Virtual Caddie. This feature takes into account shot dispersion data, historical swing data, elevation and wind to offer up the most accurate club suggestions.
The Enhanced PlaysLike Distance feature takes into consideration uphill or downhill lies, wind, temperature, and even air pressure to offer you an analytical estimate. The estimate will help you visualise how your shot will play out, so you can adjust your strategy. With AutoShot round analyzer you can pair the watch with the Approach CT10 club tracking sensors and you'll unlock a new level of game-tracking capabilities.
