Callaway Intros New Golf GPS Handheld
Callaway Golf Company on Friday revealed its next generation golf GPS device, the Callaway upro mx that features a full-color Multi-Gesture 2.2" LCD Touch Screen and an Optical Finger Navigation system. The product is set for a May 2011 availability at a retail price of $199.

The upro mx is pre-loaded with more than 25,000 courses and it offers hi-resolution actual aerial photography of each golf course with no annual fees.

Some of the on-course features include the “Virtual Green View”, which uses a proprietary imagery process to show the green and the surrounding area in vivid detail, including exact putting distances.

SmartView displays the ideal view for the upcoming shot based on the golfer's position on the course, while two other views are also available at the press of a button.

A “ProMode” offers an enhanced feature set, including TV-style video flyovers that provide an advantageous perspective for each hole layout, and “AnyPoint Technology”, which provides golfers accurate distances from any location on the golf course.
