Way Points are features on the golf course that you can mark on the Shotmiser GPS to suit your game. The Way Points are saved then every time you switch on and select a Way Pointed course, your Way Points are shown automatically on the course hole maps, all with the associated distance information.
Read on to discover how to set Way Points and how you can make a big improvement in your course management by using your own personal Way Points.
You can create a Way Point anywhere you wish. The video will show you how or follow the instructions below.
To set your personal Way Points first turn on the Way Points option as follows:
1. Load a course
2. On hole 1 click (tap) menu
3. Click the spanner icon
4. Click options
5. Using the left or right arrow scroll until the Way Points option is shown
6. Tick the box then click accept
The above procedure only needs to be performed once.
Way Points can now be set for any number of your courses as follows:
1. Go back to the main menu
2. Click the spanner icon
3. Click tools
4. Click set Way Points. You will be back to hole 1 on the course that was loaded with an OK icon at the top right of screen; ignore that for now.
5. On the hole map, tap the point on the screen where you wish to set your first Way Point.
6. Click the target icon that appears (you need to click the target icon after every Way Point you set)
7. Repeat this process on each of the 18 holes using up to 8 Way Points per hole.
8. When you have completed all the Way Points for the chosen course click the OK button at the top right of the screen.
Now whenever you load up that course, the Way Point distances will always show on the screen. As you play the hole, the remaining distance to your Way Points will adjust in the same way as it does for the green.
What I suggest is this; when you are next playing a practice round, spend some time on each hole setting your preferred Way Points. As you walk down the hole and get to a point that you would like to hit your next shot from, set a Way Point. It could be the point that is just short of all the trouble or your ideal pitch distance to the green. Set Way Points for other obvious features such as bunkers, ditches, trees etc.
When you stand on that tee in the competition your GPS will now be showing your preferred distance lay-ups. Go ahead and hit the club for the distance to your Way Point. Stick to this game plan. Don`t get caught up with everyone else hitting driver, stick to your strategy.
If you use this Way Point strategy, you can expect to really improve your course management. It will be like having a caddie by your side.
