Anyone seen or heard about this upcoming rangefinder from Precision Pro?


Recommended Posts

News to me, but can you say "Garmin Z80", but on the phone instead of the view finder!!

There's a lot of tech in that. I'd imagine a pretty significant price jump from the NX9.

This will not be cheap

Curious to see how well it would work 

 

Precision Pro is known for being the reliable brand that competes with the big names on a budget. I can't imagine this will be anywhere near the price range of the Bushnell Pro XE or the Garmin Approach Z82. If it is, I don't imagine they'll be selling many units.

Looks very interesting. At $300 it would be worth trying out

Man, you guys are some serious cyber sleuths! That page wasn't supposed to be available to the public yet (don't worry, our webmaster has been appropriately flogged for his negligence). 

 

The new rangefinder is called the R1 Smart Rangefinder and will be coming out towards the end of April. In the meantime, you can get a sneak peek of it in the devices tab of the new & free Precision Pro Golf App. We can't say much, but you're gonna want to download the app to make the most of the rangefinder. Be sure to stay tuned to our social accounts where we'll be dropping info on price, features, and pre-orders.

Oh man I really hope that's in jest and that your webmaster isn't in any actual trouble. I legitimately don't remember how I stumbled upon this page. Can't wait for more details to come!

Sadly, no golf shows to stop in and discuss with you guys. I always enjoy visits as you guys are local to me. I can’t wait to read reviews/hear more.

you can blame Andy at SGS for leaking the existence of the app. Anyway you’ll offer Apple Watch support? This app beats all others I’ve tried, and I’ve tried them all! Interested to see how it’ll work with the new laser zapper, guess I’ll have to buy the new model...

If he didn’t want to be flogged, he shouldn’t have flogged up. 😉 Just kidding... no webmasters were hurt (or even received a stern look) today. 


That was actually an old page that we used to judge golfer’s interest. They were interested. Very interested. And we’re excited to share it with all of you very soon!

Dang it, Andy! Jk, the app is actually 100% ready to start helping golfers shave strokes! So glad to hear that you're digging it!

 

Apple Watch support is high on our list of priorities and we aim to make that happen ASAP. Don't forget - when the time comes to upgrade, we offer a 30% trade in discount.

 

Assuming you're talking about our customer service rep extraordinaire, Eric gave a quick, "howdy" and then scurried back into the phone booth to don his superman cape and get back to helping customers.

I was not aware of the trade in discount! Heading to your website right now to check it out...

 

Good to know about the Apple Watch support, as I use both the front-middle-back numbers from my watch and your zapper before I ultimately shank it to the adjacent fairway.

MGS released a first look at the new rangefinder. Should be on their front page.

 

It looks great with all of the tech between the app and rangefinder. I'm definitely going to purchase and trade in my NX7 Pro. Hopefully this will kick Arccos to the curb for me.

Of course, I just ordered an NX9 yesterday, and this gets announced the next day!🤬 I contacted their customer service, and unfortunately they can't cancel that order, but they're saying I can return it for a refund, and I can pre-order the R1. I'll be curious about a few things before pulling the trigger:

  • Is the GPS an internal unit or does it use the GPS on your phone? It sounds like it's internal, but I'd like to confirm, because phone GPS accuracy isn't always totally reliable
  • Is the switch on the side for tournament mode? Seems like that's likely what it is, but would like to confirm.
  • It mentions that it comes with a charging cord -- is that for the GPS only, or for the entire unit? On other PP devices, it mentions that a battery is included, so does this one use a rechargeable battery, and if so, how long will it work on a charge, and is the battery replaceable if it stops holding a charge?

Found the answer to one of your questions. Ha

 

From their site:  An external switch easily turns slope on and off for tournament play.

They've already done one pretty significant update to the R1 page since yesterday (where it mentions the external switch for tournament mode, among other things), so it won't be a surprise if we start seeing pics of the display pretty soon.
