The Callaway Hybrid Laser GPS Rangefinder combines the GPS and pre-loaded maps with the pin-seeking precision of a laser golf rangefinder in a single, compact unit. Whether you are attempting to fire at the flag, shoot to the middle of the green, or recover from a bunker shot, this golf tool has the ability to provide any distance information required.
Pin Acquisition Technology (PAT) – This hybrid unit has the ability to accurately detect the pin from a distance of over 300 yards. Use this info to make the most accurate shots even when you aren’t able to physically see the flag.
Measurement – The laser rangefinder has the ability to measure distances that range: 5 to 1,000 yards with superior accuracy that only has a slight leeway of +/-1 yard. Also, the laser is designed to scan the landscape to pick up a variety of targets at the same time. Plus, there is the option to measure distances in yards or meters.
Magnification – The 6x magnification of this hybrid makes objects on the golf course appear that much clearer and closer. This is certain to help when trying to target an object in a quite cluttered area.
Pre-loaded courses – The Callaway Hybrid GPS is pre-loaded with a total of 30,000+ golf courses from around the world. With the top courses included from domestic and international locations, there is little risk of playing a course that isn’t included in this device. Also, there are no subscription or download fees to keep the GPS maps up to date.
Weight and dimension – The GPS/rangefinder unit is quite light at 7.58 oz considering the amount of tech that is squeezed into this package (dimensions 4.25 by 3 by 1.75 inches)
A great hybrid golf rangefinder that works, the Callaway Hybrid Laser GPS Rangefinder Power Pack is very easy to use and feels relatively lightweight. The GPS ability is nice to have, not only for the map courses, but also the extra information for the back, middle and front of the green and to hazards. The laser technology seems to be highly accurate and even emits a quiet chirp sound when the laser is locked onto the targeted pin.
