Motocaddy, the global market leader in electric caddy sales, has dominated the latest MyGolfSpy ‘Most Wanted Electric Carts’ listing with its M7 GPS REMOTE and M7 REMOTE models rated #1 and #2 by the independent website with more than 80 million readers worldwide.
The unrivalled feat also means that a Motocaddy electric caddy has been chosen as the ‘Most Wanted’ winner for an unprecedented fourth year-in-a-row, after the M7 REMOTE model took top spot in each of the last three years.
The 2023 ‘Most Wanted’ winner, the M7 GPS REMOTE, was launched earlier this year to global acclaim as the world's first remote-control electric caddy with touchscreen GPS. It remains the only model of its kind on sale in the U.S. market and scored an incredible 98 out of 100 overall in the test, with MyGolfSpy taking buying considerations such as cost versus performance, compatibility and size into account.
Finishing first in three out of five scoring categories - including manoeuvrability, ease of use and features - the popular website said of the winning model: ‘The Motocaddy M7 GPS is the best electric golf caddy for 2023. The large touchscreen GPS makes the overall user experience an absolute dream. Filled with features like a bright GPS display and USB charging for your phone. The M7 GPS is extremely manoeuvrable thanks to its swivelling front wheel and remote-control feature.’
“We’re thrilled to have the top-rated electric caddies on the market and to claim the ‘Most Wanted’ spot four years running is just fantastic,” said Mark Kuryak, Motocaddy General Manager/President of the Americas. “We’d like to thank the team at MyGolfSpy for this special recognition after they tested all the leading brands in the market and found that Motocaddy offered golfers the most to enjoy their game.
“The electric caddy category is growing at an astonishingly fast rate in the U.S. and we’re excited to be leading the charge by introducing more and more golfers to our high-tech, reliable and easy-to-use models,” he added.
The M7 REMOTE, a three-time winner of the ‘Most Wanted’ title, scored an impressive 96 overall, coming in joint 1st place in manoeuvrability and 2nd place in ease of use and features. MyGolfSpy said: ‘There's a reason it's been a perennial winner. The Motocaddy M7 REMOTE boasts great manoeuvrability and awesome features and the remote control is easy to use. It also features manual mode if you want to hold on while you walk.’
“The M7 REMOTE has been so successful with American golfers for the past three years, that we took its blueprint and added the most innovative ‘best-in-class’ GPS technology to produce a caddy that literally has everything a golfer needs to get them round the course,” said Kuryak.
The M7 GPS REMOTE features a fully integrated, super-fast GPS system with 3.5” touchscreen, providing players access to accurate green visuals; front, middle and back distances; plus, hazard information across more than 40,000 preloaded courses.
On top of that, the M7 GPS REMOTE features the world’s most-advanced electric caddy GPS technology through Motocaddy’s exclusive cellular-powered GPS Performance Plan, allowing golfers to unlock a selection of stunning hi-tech game management features.
These include access to full-hole mapping with the ability to move the target for ultimate shot planning; a detailed dynamic Green View showing the shape of the green and greenside hazards with drag and drop pin positions; score and statistic tracking; performance analysis through the free Motocaddy GPS App; real-time course updates to ensure access to the latest mapping; and notifications of software updates with ‘on-the-go’ downloads.
The pocket-sized remote-control handset can move the caddy forward, left, right and in reverse, plus pause and resume. It can also switch instantly from remote to manual control mode and back again if the user wants to control it from the handle like a regular electric caddy via the speed button. In addition to including automatic Downhill Control technology, there is an emergency stop and a handset lock function. The LCD touchscreen also includes an additional battery meter indicating the capacity of the handset.
When connected to the free Motocaddy GPS app, golfers can also receive a wide range of optional smartphone notifications direct to the screen - alerting them to a call, text message, email or range of app alerts, including WhatsApp and Facebook. A preview of message alerts can also be read on-screen.
A cell phone can be securely placed in a golf bag pocket and charged using the caddy’s patented USB charging port. In addition to the cellular and Bluetooth® capabilities, other connectivity features include super-fast Over‑the‑Air course and system updates via the built-in WIFI connection.
Following the award-winning M7 REMOTE blueprint, the M7 GPS REMOTE also offers a next generation High Power 28.8V system, powerful 230W DHC twin motors, a removable anti-tip rear wheel, a 360° rotating front wheel, plus the exclusive EASILOCK® bag-to-caddy connection system that removes the need for a lower bag strap.
