Does the cart keep track of the distance walked?

The M7 doesn't however my GPS watch does and it's 7.3 miles.  I've been playing at least three times per week. Last week I walked four times for 28 + miles

The M5 does have a shot tracking option that lets you track shot distances. Not sure if it could keep track of an entire round. Maybe something for a future software upgrade?

Does the M5 have stat tracking capabilities too? Fairways Hit,GIR, # of putts?

You can track your score but it doesn't give you the option to add in number of putts or greens hit. We discussed that initially when we had our call with Roger and it was something that I think they were looking in to.

Within the last week I put 28 miles on the M7 MotoCaddy.  My 70 year ole arse has been humping like a bull in a pen full of heifers.   I can tell ya one thing for sure, if I had been pushing a cart around that many miles, my back would be yelling uncle! It's amazing how much better I feel post round while walking the hills around my course with the M7.  

For sure! Never thought I'd walk my home course before. I have a friend who does walk every time he plays and it looks like he's suffering but doing it for the exercise. With the Motocaddy I feel like I can do the same even in the height of a SoCal summer. How are you keeping track of your miles walked? Just based on the length of the course?

I have an odometer on my Garmin watch.  I will be walking through the summer too with plenty of water in the bag.  Plus now the water coolers are cold and full since covid.

Saw another one of these yesterday at my home course, this was an M7, a junior golfer was using it and it seemed effortless, made me want one even more.

Ah Icic. Hmm my phone sort of keeps track but when it's on the cart doesn't track. We are starting to get back to precovid course amenities like water and takes. But even then I never trusted the water coolers. Seen people drink from their bottles and put the mouth of the bottle right up to the spout lol.

Haha did you have to point out it was a junior golfer??? But yes I've been seeing more and more ecarts on the course.

My phone does too and I have thought about picking up one of those belt cases for it however being an apple iphone it's rather large.   I get points at Dicks for miles walked so it has crossed my mind.

I definitely get a lot of looks from the older guys around the clubhouse when I walk by because I'm only in my 20s. I'm sure they are wondering how I can have this expensive cart being young.

Well I had a big fail today. I played earlier and tried to take a video of the set up on the screen starting with selecting your course and how easy it is to switch between holes, track your score and hazards. I checked my phone and realized I took a picture instead haha

Hi, I’m new here. I have an M7 and love it…. apart from a fault it has. In fact this is my third M7 and it does exactly the same. 
 

It randomly stops by itself. And I don’t mean the auto-cutout at 120 seconds or 50 meter distance. This can be 5 seconds, 30 seconds, whatever, after the last remote command. But it just stops. About 15-20 times a round. I even make sure I’m holding the remote nowhere near the buttons, in case I was accidentally pressing stop  

The only other thing I noticed is that on the updated 2021 version the screen has been updated with an anti-glare screen. But in fact it’s much harder to see than the 2020 version, with was very bright and visible on all lights. 
 

Has anyone else noticed the stopping problem? It’s driving me nuts. Fair play to Motocaddy UK, they have replaced it twice. But each time it means weeks without a trolley for me.

LOL around here if you tell most folks about MGS they will look at you like you have Lobsters growing out your ears. In fact some guys around my course think I bought the thing. They can not begin to fathom MGS.  I tell them I am testing for Motocaddy and MGS I get a deer in the headlights look. Most of the interest besides the first 2 times I showed up with it comes from some of the tourist golfers. 

Went outside the box today ( as I am known to do) Put my Mini Staff Titleist bag on it. Fit well and with the angle my bag is at makes it easy to get to to the pockets etc. LOL Roger I was lazy and did not want to transfer clubs to the Motocaddy bag. I have so much stuff the Motocaddy bag stays stocked with balls gloves and tees all the time. I just grabbed the Titleist bag because I had my KZG graphite shaft irons in it and wanted to hit them

Sorry to hear about that problem but that is great customer service to keep replacing it.

FWIW.. I have a different brand electric cart - its remote has "Lock" and "Unlock" buttons. I haven't had to use them, though .. I unintentionally stop the cart when I'm using the handlebar and accidently hit the Go/Stop button in the center! 🤦‍♂️
