BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Avid golfers and weekend duffers alike can always know the distance to the green with GPSGolfShot, a new application available exclusively to Verizon Wireless customers. Using GPS technology, GPSGolfShot helps golfers navigate both new and familiar golf courses, giving them information to improve their games, right on their wireless phones.
GPSGolfShot provides real-time yardage readings on nearly 10,000 professionally-mapped golf courses across the United States, making club selection simple and helping to speed up play by eliminating the need to seek out distance markers or to pace off yardage. Course layouts are updated constantly and new courses are added frequently. Many golfers have their wireless phones with them when they play, and GPSGolfShot eliminates the need to carry an additional expensive range finder or other gadget.
GPSGolfShot also speaks distances with the touch of a button so it’s always possible to get distance information, even in bright sunlight. The “Measure My Shot” function allows golfers to accurately measure how far drivers or irons travel, providing information on how to play the next shot.
As golf season gets into high gear, GPSGolfShot is available now on many Verizon Wireless phones, including the LG enV®3 and LG Versa™ and the Samsung SCH-u410, SCH-a870 and SCH-a930. Customers can find GPSGolfShot in the Media Center or Get It Now® stores under the Download This! and Sports categories.
GPSGolfShot is available for $1.99 per round or $3.99 per month for unlimited use. For those who love to golf year-round, an annual subscription is available for $34.99. Airtime, data usage and messaging fees may apply during download and use of the application.
