Yamaha Golf-Car Company unveiled its latest  technological advancement, the YamaTrack GPS Solution, at the PGA Merchandise Show Demo Day and at their Trade Show Booth (# 2243) in Orlando, January 26-28.

YamaTrack is a cloud-based, multi-platform GPS solution that gives a golf course total fleet management and players an iPhone app designed to enrich their experience. A Yamaha Golf Car customer can choose among one or both of the systems to enhance course operations and a player’s full enjoyment of a round of golf at their facility.

“YamaTrack is an affordable and innovative fleet management tool that reduces course costs, enables optimal performance of a golf car fleet and enriches the experience for the player. We are quite excited to unveil this new addition to the Yamaha line of products at the PGA Merchandise Show and Demo Day.” remarked Yamaha Golf-Car Company President Tom McDonald.

Unique benefits to the YamaTrack GPS Solution include:

Fleet Management and Car Control

With the YamaTrack fleet management system the entire golf staff can now track the location of every golf car on the course, track pace of play, dispatch a marshal to where play might lag, automatically slow down a golf car approaching steep or winding terrain and when necessary even shut down a car. The course superintendent can similarly track the location of all utility vehicles and maintenance equipment while in the office or on an internet-enabled iPad while on the course.

YamaTrack can even create on-course geofences to establish a virtual perimeter around sensitive environmental areas, rain-soaked turf, green surrounds and the like. With the fleet back in storage, YamaTrack diagnostics can assess and maximize golf car rotation, battery life and amp hour usage.

Player Connectivity

The YamaTrack Player App allows the golf shop staff and a golfer to interact through an iPhone mobile app, a stand-alone companion to the YamaTrack system. When using the app, the golfer benefits by having access to vivid course diagrams, precise golf course yardages and food & beverage ordering from the course.

For the golf shop, the player connectivity features are custom branded to the course and are designed to generate incremental revenue through faster food orders at the turn, as well as receive player feedback after the round if the player chooses to “rate the course”.

YamaTrack’s internet-based facility management software was developed in conjunction with iGolf, a leading provider of technology content and services for the location-based industry. Course information, yardages and graphics are provided by the iGolf suite of course management tools.
