Pocket Caddy Golf GPS App Factors Wind, Elevation Change

Pocket Caddy Golf GPSI guess it had to happen eventually: a golf GPS app that factors in windage and elevation change. Pocket Caddy recently announced an update to its golf GPS app ($0.99)with improved accuracy for factoring wind and elevation changes into club and aiming recommendations. Pocket Caddy imports data in real time from the nearest weather station to provide a windage factor. The app also automatically uses elevation change for yardage, for example, showing you "202 yards, plays 215 yards." Unlike many golf GPS apps, Pocket Caddy does not include a big database of courses with yardages and hazards pre-filled. You must tap to target your next shot on a satellite view of the course you are playing. Getting wind and elevation data on the course is also banned under the rules of golf, but should be fine for casual play. Image Pocket Caddy
