This January, Pro-Fit will introduce a groundbreaking system to allow golf car owners to monitor and manage their vehicles more closely than ever before. Smart Link™ combines specially designed hardware with a smartphone application to provide owners with unprecedented control over their vehicles.
Smart Link is compatible with multiple golf-car models, including the E-Z-GO® TXT®, E-Z-GO RXV®, Club Car® DS and Precedent®, and Yamaha® Drive®. Pro-Fit is a line of universal and economical golf car accessories, available at more than 479 golf car dealerships nationwide and online at Pro-FitParts.com.
Smart Link provides golf car owners with the ability to gather robust data about vehicle performance including current vehicle speed, battery charge level, and expected recharging time. In addition, operators can plot their desired route to their destination with GPS guidance, receive maintenance reminders as necessary, and lock their vehicle to prevent unauthorized usage or theft.
“The Smart Link system offers peace of mind to the end consumer,” said Frank Cisterino, General Manager of Lake Erie Golf Carts. “With this tool, a father can lock the vehicle in the garage so his young child doesn’t accidentally turn it on, or an elderly golf-car owner can be notified that his golf car has less than 25 percent of its battery charge remaining and it’s time to get home. This is revolutionary in our industry.”
Smart Link is compatible with Android and Apple iOS-powered hardware, and allows monitoring functionality for up to 5 users, so a family can place the app on multiple smartphones. Alternatively, the app can connect to unlimited vehicles, creating a monitoring system for golf-car fleet operators. The required hardware and device are sold together, with no monthly fee for the application.
Smart Link easily attaches to the vehicle’s rear body with a supplied bracket and pulls only three milliamps of power from the battery. The “Lock-Out” feature connects to the Charger Interrupt circuit on all E-Z-GO, Club Car Precedent, Club Car DS and Yamaha Drive vehicles.
