The Motocaddy M7 GPS Electric Trolley breaks new ground as the world’s first remote control GPS trolley. Is this the best golf trolley made yet?
Motocaddy were the first to incorporate GPS technology into the screen of a golf trolley in the M5 model and have now gone a step further with the launch of a remote control version too.
While the release of trollies that can be guided by remote control isn’t new, one with incorporated GPS and that is what sets the M7 apart from the rest.
We take a look at the new design, what MotoCaddy have come up with in the product and whether or not it is worth splashing out on.
What Motocaddy says about the M7 GPS Remote Control Trolley:
Offering the ultimate in responsive control, the all-new M7 GPS is the World’s first remote-controlled touchscreen trolley featuring quick and accurate fully integrated high-performance GPS for over 40,000 worldwide courses.
“The new M7 GPS delivers the ultimate caddie experience to give users an edge.
“It offers everything a golfer needs to transport their clubs around the course effortlessly, whilst providing pinpoint yardages and GPS mapping through its super-responsive touchscreen.
“The revolutionary electric trolley GPS technology pioneered by Motocaddy in 2017 has advanced a great deal in recent years.
“Today, our cellular-powered Performance Plan combines with the most responsive remote-control technology on the market to take the trolley experience to an exciting new level.”
Motocaddy M7 GPS Electric Trolley Design & Features
Motocaddy have taken the M5 GPS model, improved it and added in remote control technology to launch their most complete trolley for 2023.
The M7 features a fully-integrated GPS device into the screen of the trolley with a 3.5” LCD touchscreen display to deliver all important distances to the front, middle and back of green as well as hazards.
Those distances are available for more than 40,000 pre-loaded courses worldwide and are displayed in a dynamic green view with the shape of the putting surface.
You can also use drag and drop pin positioning to get exact distances to the flag based on the position on the day of play.
That is also nicely displayed as part of a solid M-Series trolley frame that folds down for handy storage in the car or garage.
The key difference between the M5 GPS vs M7 GPS is that that new 2023 model comes with a remote control operation for the first time.
The trolley can be steered hands free in forward, left, right and reverse directions via a handset that can also be stored on the side of the M7 when not being used.
It also features automatic downhill control to manage the speed going down gradients, and has all terrain DHC tyres with an anti-skid tread to cope with all conditions. There is also a removable anti-tip rear wheel.
The M7 also offers score tracking, shot distance measurements, smartphone notifications and a USB charging point.
Verdict: Is the Motocaddy M7 GPS golf trolley any good?
In a word, yes. The M5 was an excellent addition from Motocaddy and the M7 is a serious upgrade with improvements and the launch of the remote control features.
Using the remote control won’t be for everyone who feel they might not control the trolley well, but it really makes walking the course much easier.
It is just about the most complete golf trolley you will find – perhaps no surprise as the world’s first remote control GPS model – and is top class. The other negative is the eye-watering price tag.
How much does the Motocaddy M7 GPS Electric Trolley cost?
It will retail at £1500 / $1800 USD, making it one of the most expensive on the market.
