PowaKaddy unveils world’s first touchscreen remote controlled GPS trolley

PowaKaddy has announced the launch of the RX Remote Range, which includes the world’s first touchscreen remote controlled GPS trolley.

The RX1 and the RX1 GPS feature a range of premium technologies, evolving PowaKaddy’s 2023 offering to new levels of design and innovation, and allowing golfers to take charge of their PowaKaddy with more ease than ever before.

The RX1 (RRP £1199.99) and RX1 GPS (RRP £1449.99) boast a slimline remote-control handset that has a 50-metre range, giving golfers complete wireless control of their electric trolley from the palm of their hand. Additionally, the swivel front wheel offers smooth manoeuvring in all conditions, while the Slope Traverse Assist (STA) helps to keep the trolleys stable on all terrains.

The RX1 is equipped with a 3.5ins full-colour widescreen display, while the RX1 GPS features a 3.5ins touchscreen OCA display, which is pre-loaded with more than 40,000 courses worldwide – with no annual fees or subscriptions required. The trolley also benefits from a Bluetooth-connected app for iOS and Android which allows for quick golf course updates.

Furthermore, both models feature twin powerful 30v 230w near-silent motors, a smartphone/GPS device USB charging port, an anti-tip rear wheel, a height-adjustable soft touch handle, a two-year warranty, and PowaKaddy’s high-performance low-profile PowaFrame Chassis.

They are powered by a special RX specific next-generation Lithium 30v Max Plug ’n’ Play XL-Plus battery, which is 40% smaller than the previous model, fully IP66 water and dust rated, and is the thinnest, lightest, and most powerful Lithium battery on the market – delivering up to 20% more power than previous models.

The RX1 and RX1 GPS headline PowaKaddy’s new and improved 2023 range and sit alongside the FX and CT ranges. The 2023 PowaKaddy CT range will feature a number of new updates, including a fresh look to the UK’s best-selling CT6 trolley, while the FX range will see a new line-up, featuring the popular FX3 and FX5 trolleys.
