Sonocaddie V350 Golf GPS

Improve your game with the latest Sonocaddie Golf GPS unit. The range finder gives you the precise distance information you need to achieve a higher level of performance.

The unit is an improvement on previous products and offers various useful features:

Expanded view with full colour layouts preloaded

The Sonocaddie V350 Plus makes downloading a thing of the past as it comes preloaded with colour layouts. New courses are, however, continually mapped so users can update their course list any time by registering the membership.

Green view

By providing two additional coordinates apart from the distance of front, centre and back of the green, the yardage will change up and down continually until you find your ideal spot. This powerful technology gives you a better chance to choose any point as the perfect landing zone and turn your shot into a beautiful landing.

Distance calculator

By using Sonocaddie’s Mark function you will have a quick and precise yardage in your hand, to assist you in determining your driving distance. Simply press one button after taking the shot, then walk to the landed ball and you will see the result. You can do this for all your other clubs as well to know your distance for your entire set.

Personalised course information

With Sonocaddie you can make changes or corrections to the reference points right on the spot. You may change the given course information, and add or delete some of the reference points as the course may change over time.

Digital Scorecard and Game Analysis

Eliminate your paper scorecard. The Sonocaddie will automatically calculate the total score with the simple touch of a button, so you will easily know how you did on the front nine and the back nine holes. At the end of 18, Sonocaddie will present a summary of your round, even analyse statistics and the score with calculated rational and percentage.

Automatic Course Finder

A powerful and convenient search engine in Golf GPS, Automatic Course Finder can automatically find and list all the courses within a range from five to 50 miles. That means you can locate your course right on the spot and don’t have to go through all the courses in your device.
