How do you improve on the best GPS handheld in golf? Make it bigger!
The SX550 has a larger 5.5” LCD high-definition capacitive color touch screen to provide more viewing screen. The SX550 is driven by an ultra-fast multi-core processor for fast response.
The SX550 is the premium GPS handheld providing the very “best view” in golf with vivid course graphics and distances you can trust. It comes preloaded with more than 35,000 course maps from around the world.
Only SkyCaddie walks each course to ground verify their course maps with sub-meter precision. You deserve the most complete course maps in golf, that is why we record thousands of points on each course. To play better you need to trust your distance so you can trust the club on each shot. With SkyCaddie’s SX550 you will quickly SEE MORE, PLAY BETTER and HAVE MORE FUN than ever before.
The SkyCaddie® SX550 has a slim feel with highly water-resistant design. With a large battery, the SX550 is ready for extended playing time for that emergency 9, or even 18 more holes. Using multi-constellation navigation satellite systems, the SX550 provides enhanced accuracy and overall better performance under tough conditions or tree cover.
The powerful features of the SkyCaddie® SX550 are easily tapped with a 5.5", intuitive touch screen and a host of automated features such as Auto-Course Selection, Auto-Hole Advance and Auto-Zoom, making it basically "touch-free" from the parking lot to the 19th hole. The large HD display combined with HD quality course graphics, only available from SkyCaddie, provide the best view of the most-reliable information in the game to allow you to play your best golf.
Just like the SX500 and SX400, the powerful processor of the SX550 drives SkyCaddie’s new Dynamic HoleVue™, which automatically re-orients the entire golf hole from your position to the green as you progress from the tee. So, in addition to SkyCaddie’s patented IntelliGreen® technology, golfers can now see the entire hole from their point-of-view... only from SkyCaddie!
The SkyCaddie® SX550 comes preloaded with over 35,000 ground-verified, error-corrected courses without the short-cuts taken by the competition. Only SkyCaddie walks each course to record thousands of points with sub-meter precision because we know that you cannot trust your club if you cannot trust your distances. Knowing and TRUSTING critical distances lets you manage your game and eliminate those 6, 7, and 8’s from your scorecard!
Try SkyCaddie’s SX550 and you will quickly SEE MORE, PLAY BETTER and HAVE MORE FUN than ever before.
While other GPS products may provide a few calculated layup yardages, the SX550 delivers distances to up to 40 geo-referenced targets per hole, all integrated within HoleVue. Simply double-tap or pinch and zoom HoleVue to reveal instantly the critical distances to all hazards, carries and layups... all verified by SkyGolf’s ground mapping team.
Unlike other rangefinders, which rely on satellite imagery that is often outdated and unreliable, only SkyCaddie walks the course to capture accurate and verifiable data to provide you with distances you can trust.
With SkyCaddie’s patented IntelliGreen® technology, the exact shape of the green automatically rotates to match your angle of approach to provide all of the distances you need to hit more greens and avoid 3-putts. This proprietary feature gives you a chance to turn every shot into a scoring opportunity by providing front carry and back distances, depth of green, and distances to any other point on the green — simultaneously.
Only available on the SX550, the new and patented Dynamic HoleVue™ feature rotates the fairway and orients the green from your current position and angle of attack as you move from the tee to the green. Now, you see everything between you and the green instantly without touching a button and get the distances you need to avoid hazards and play your best golf. The group behind you will play through if try that with a laser!
Simply use the cursor to select your intended target and line of play and IntelliPath™ not only provides the distance to your intended target, but also automatically provides the distance to every other relevant attribute of course along and beyond your target line. So, now without wasting time trying to make multiple measurements, such as with a laser, to get distances to intervening hazards, end of fairways and other shot saving information, you will have every distance you need instantly and automatically from anywhere on the course. Play like a Pro and make the right club selection with everything a caddie would tell you in one simple step and displayed graphically on a stunningly brilliant screen.
Multiple yardage arcs overlay fairway landing areas and greens to allow you to select quickly the best club for every shot... start playing smarter and faster from tee to green.
With the SkyCaddie® SX550, you can learn quickly how far you hit each club. Customize RangeVue® by entering your club yardages. Then as you play, you will see your club range next to the RangeVue ring on every part of the course for much improved shot-making to fairways, layups and greens. RangeVue® with Club Ranges provides added confidence on every shot to avoid hazards and dial-in approach shots for more birdie putts.
IntelliGreen® Pro is a dynamically enhanced version of IntelliGreen that adds the ability to display major tiers, contours, false fronts, and mounds from your angle of approach to the green on selective courses. By moving the IntelliGreen crosshairs to the ridge lines on the image of the green, you can find instant distances and depth information for major tiers and false fronts. With IntelliGreen Pro, you’ll always know what’s ahead, no matter where you are on the hole, even if you can’t see the green!
In conformance with USGA regulations, SkyCaddie does not factor slopes or gradients into distance calculations.
SkyCaddie PinPoint® provides the ability to get distances to the pin on IntelliGreen to obsolete laser rangefinders. Simply enter pin sheet or zone information into the SkyCaddie® SX550 to get distances to the front, back, pin location or zone PLUS the depth and true shape green... AND all of this information is on one screen that changes automatically based on your current position and angle of approach from anywhere on the course…whether you can see the flag or not. With the SX550, you get more information, from more places quickly, easily, and without aiming! Try doing that with a laser!
Your SkyCaddie® SX550 can now track each shot you play! Which clubs you used, how far you hit them, and where you hit them from. Activate Shot Tracking on your SkyCaddie to track today's round, identify your strengths and weaknesses - and find out which clubs are helping or hurting your game! No need to buy additional hardware, and it is simple to set up. After you play, just WiFi Sync and use the in-depth tools to explore your round in detail at SkyGolf 360.
The SkyCaddie® SX550 provides scoring options for Stroke and Stableford with handicapping and tracks total putts and fairways hit. Turn the SX550 to the left or right and the AutoView feature displays a full 9-hole Digital Scorecard instantly in landscape mode.
Intelligent Automation™ provides an almost touchless and buttonless experience from the parking lot to the 19th hole. Whether you prefer only basic distance information or want everything the SkyCaddie® has to offer, simple on-off settings allow you to have it your way. Intelligent automation makes sure critical DISTANCE information is ready before you need it.
