Compact new SX400 joins SkyCaddie’s ultra-fast GPS range

SkyCaddie’s new SX400 gives golfers the powerful features found in the award-winning, Tour-proven SX500 model, in a more compact size.

The advertising-supported SkyCaddie SX400 is available in the UK from October 2019 at RRP £299.95.

The SX400 and SX500 (RRP £379.95) both have ultra-fast multi-core processors which make them not only golf’s fastest golf GPS units – but also the fastest distance measuring devices golfers can use.

With its 4-inch HD touchscreen the SX400 joins the larger SX500 (5-inch screen) in delivering golf’s quickest and most comprehensive way to measure yardages while providing the best-possible view of every hole you play.

Because both the SX400 and SX500 have Wi-Fi connectivity which literally ‘cuts the cord’ to the computer, golfers can wirelessly download SkyCaddie’s very latest course maps and software updates within moments, right before they play.

And the new SX400 and the SX500 both conform with the R&A’s legal guidelines for use in competition.

James Holmes, SkyCaddie’s General Manager UK & Europe, said: “We have included all of the SX500’s advanced stroke-saving features in the SkyCaddie SX400, for golfers wanting a more compact version of this game-changing device.

“After four wins and dozens of top ten finishes for the SX500 so far on the European senior Staysure Tour,” he continued, “a growing number of elite golfers are now telling us that the features provided by SkyCaddie’s new GPS devices mean that they no longer need their laser or even a yardage book.

“All a golfer has to do is try a single round with the SX400 or SX500, and they will grasp instantly why the Tour golfers are now using them.

“The true clincher, for serious golfers, is that the SX400 and SX500 both have the ability to show today’s pin positions. This most appeals to golfers who previously relied on the limited-vision, single-yardage option which a laser provides.

“The new SX400 and its bigger brother the SX500 both provide all the information the best players in the game need, in a faster and easier way, so they can focus on playing their best golf.

“We believe that SkyCaddie’s SX400 and SX500 are the best-priced, easiest to use, and most features-packed distance measuring devices on the market today.”

Because SkyCaddie mappers have already paced out every detail of the green ahead of you, the SX400 shows you its exact shape, depth and major contours on the green from anywhere on the golf course, filling you with confidence to hit your best shot to the green.

With the SX400 there’s no time wasted in aiming. Instead, Dynamic HoleVue technology automatically presents yardages to every hazard, carry and lay-up point on each hole, from your current angle of attack, with more details and yardages appearing as you zoom in.

Both devices feature SkyCaddie’s unique IntelliPath Technology, which gives yardages to targets along and beyond your target line, instantly showing you the relevant carry and run-out distances with no need to aim.

This is ideal for planning tee shots over bunkers and around dog-legs, or where you want to stop short of a lake, a ditch or the end of a fairway.

Just like the SX500, the SkyCaddie SX400 comes preloaded and “ready-to-play” with over 35,000 exclusive, ground-verified, error-corrected SkyCaddie course maps, created without the short-cuts taken by the competition.

Where other GPS brands rely on aerial photography which is inaccurate and often years out of date, only SkyCaddie creates and frequently updates each course map on foot to record thousands of points with sub-metre precision.

With hundreds of golf course changes mapped on foot by SkyCaddie in the UK each year, the SX400’s convenient and rapid connectivity puts the very latest golf course maps into your hand before every game of golf.

The SX400 comes in a compact, sleek, highly water-resistant body that’s easy to hold or to attach to your golf bag or golf trolley.

Boasting an exceptional battery life of over 20 hours, more than three 18-hole rounds of golf, the SX400 is ready for extended playing time – just like its big brother the SX500.

And by using multi-constellation satellite navigation systems, the SX400 and SX500 provide enhanced accuracy under tough weather conditions or when under tree cover.

So whether you prefer the largest display in golf with the SkyCaddie SX500, or the more compact SkyCaddie SX400, both devices assure that you have golf’s most-powerful rangefinder, with the most-brilliant screen, from the most-trusted distance-measurement brand in golf, SkyCaddie®.

The SkyCaddie SX400 retails for £299.95 in the UK from October 2019, and comes with a 1-year UK & Ireland Membership (Birdie) as an introductory offer. After your first year, memberships start at just £29.95 per year for the Birdie which gives you hundreds of exclusive ground-mapped course updates each year, ensuring that only SkyCaddie GPS users have the latest, most accurate information about the hole ahead.
