Mobitee recently ran a contest on TheSandtrap.com challenging members to download the Lite version of their app and try it out on the course.  We received quite a few requests for additional information about the features available, so here are the full details straight from the source!  Bon apetit.

"Mobitee is the best GPS assistant, scorecard keeper, distance calculator, rangefinder and virtual coach, all rolled into one little app. Inside, you’ll find tools that have been developed by golfers for golfers. Yes, this application was made for you.

Mobitee is your personal, portable golf caddy. You’ll instantly know your distances and scores, as well as see an aerial view of each hole. This cross-platform app even gives you club advice for each shot you make to help you improve your game.


Want to know the distance remaining to the hole? No problem, check in with Mobitee to find out how much farther it is to any of the greens, hazards, doglegs, whatever you want. In a flash, your virtual coach will advise you which club you need and how hard you have to hit the ball, so that you can perform your best on the course.

Want to see an aerial shot of the hole you’re about to play? The app’s satellite images and flyover videos are incredibly helpful.  In addition, you have an automatic and interactive scorecard complete with handicap scoring.

To follow your progress, the new Shot Tracking tool enables you to record and track all your hits. It also shows you your covered distances and calculates your average hitting distance with each club.  Mobitee offers you a global selection of 25,000 courses and counting. Go ahead and use one of these, or add your own via the Mobitee website from your PC.  Whichever course you decide upon - the built-in guide offers you the address, lets you know what’s nearby, gives you route guidance and prices. You can even reserve a tee time."

I've downloaded and been playing with the Free version of this and it looks amazing but I do have a few questions before I decide on buying the full version:

- The description says that the app displays distance to hazards, however on a lot of the UK holes I've checked it only shows tee and green distances. Is there a way for users to add hazards for their local course or do we wait for the Mobitee developers to go through and add all that extra info?

- Markers on the courses (http://www.mobitee.com/golfs/details/id/14775-Horton+Park%28Millenium%29) seem to be from the very front of the tee to the very back of the green. How does the app know whether the green is 10 yards deep or 40 yards deep based on one marker for the green?

- With the shot tracking, does it automatically remove the user-set figure for certain club distances? e.g. if I mark my driver as "10 yards" and then I track a driver shot at 250 yards will it only use the actual distance I've hit with it or will it average the user's data and the actuals? Is there a way to use only user-set data or only recorded data or even a way to use user-set until real data is made available from the shot tracker?

- I remember seeing an article recently which said that the use of an iPhone (example) on a golf course is against the Rules of Golf for tournament play but I can't see any information about it on your website. Is it legal?

Thanks very much in advance.

Here are the details you're after (in blue), straight from Mobitee:

1) The description says that the app displays distance to hazards, however on a lot of the UK holes I've checked it only shows tee and green distances. Is there a way for users to add hazards for their local course or do we wait for the Mobitee developers to go through and add all that extra info? As this new version has just been came out, the description is not up to date yet. The one online is about the old version which only displays nearest hazards. The new version allows user to know distance from his position to any place on the map, which is much more powerful!



2)  Markers on the courses (http://www.mobitee.com/golfs/details/id/14775-Horton+Park%28Millenium%29) seem to be from the very front of the tee to the very back of the green. How does the app know whether the green is 10 yards deep or 40 yards deep based on one marker for the green? Markers on website are only displayed to show holes count and position (course layout), data into the app don’t use those markers; our team place markers independently.



3)  With the shot tracking, does it automatically remove the user-set figure for certain club distances? e.g. if I mark my driver as "10 yards" and then I track a driver shot at 250 yards will it only use the actual distance I've hit with it or will it average the user's data and the actuals? Is there a way to use only user-set data or only recorded data or even a way to use user-set until real data is made available from the shot tracker? You will have choice to use distance get from shot tracking, or average of all distances get for this club or a customized distance



4)  I remember seeing an article recently which said that the use of an iPhone (example) on a golf course is against the Rules of Golf for tournament play but I can't see any information about it on your website. Is it legal? Yes, this kind of tool are authorized by R&A; but for competition, you must previously ask your golf club (local rules)

Thanks for your questions!  If any other members need clarification, send your thoughts my way...

Good news on all fronts then. Very nice indeed!

Do we know when the team plan on adding all these features or whether they're already in there? For example with shot distance tracking options.

Also I assume it's possible once registered to let the team know of issues with markers on holes or on the website maps?

Thanks for finding that out; much appreciated!

I believe they're working these new features into an upcoming version.  The Mobitee team is constantly troubleshooting, so if you encounter any issues you can reach them via their company website.  Happy golfing!

My app only lets me see 5 holes, then it requires you to upgrade for $25.  How can I judge the system for a round if I can only access 5 holes?
