Beginning immediately, golfers can try out StarCaddy golf yardage and GPS software live on the golf course, with the release of the new demo version of StarCaddy. For the first time, Palm and Pocket PC PDA owners can select a free trial map of their choice with the downloadable trial version. This allows users to experience all of StarCaddy's features by actually taking it along with them when they play a round of golf.
StarCaddy is an easy-to-use software package for Palm and Pocket PC PDAs that creates the ultimate tool for getting accurate yardages on the golf course. Golfers can use StarCaddy to determine the exact yardage to any course feature (greens, hazards etc), keep score and take the guesswork out of their game. StarCaddy uses digital course maps created from satellite and aerial imagery to display the exact position of the golfer and all course features.
