For sure. Roger mentioned that this is the feedback he is looking for from the test so that they can use it for future models. Apparently the UK and US markets are a bit different in terms of customer wants and needs. I asked why the GPS and remote functions could not be merged into one unit and he said that in Europe most consumers have shown they don't really care much for a remote.

I can see the remote being a “distraction” that’s why I asked about the “follow me” option....with that you don’t have to worry guidance of the cart for the biggest part of the round...it just stays 5 yards behind you.

Great start to these reviews! Based on the videos and pictures it seems like the Motocaddy is even smaller and perhaps easier to unfold than my Caddytek.

Yep that is the way you disinguage the drive tracks-- I had figured it out and Roger confirmed it--- As far as handling and storing it does just fine--- Like I told Roger It could fit in the trunk of my S-500 easily with a staff bag if I did not have so much stuff in there already but that is my fault. But it does fit in the back seat fine. As far as the weight it is a sturdy built unit and a little heavy but did not strain my back too bad handling it. LOL talking about a race I already have one lined up with an old Vet who lives in the park who rides a Rascal Scooter but he insisted I have to have a loaded golf bag on it. I will have a "driver" though one of the young guys that runs and bicycles all time. I can not keep up with it set on 8. Yep this is going to be a blast. Wanted to get it on course yesterday but I had one of my "bad days" hoping to do it today but need to check the weather because they are calling for showers on and off today and they do not reccomend it in the rain for ovious reasons

We're going to need to see videos of this race! I was thinking I could race the GPS unit against a golf cart with the automatic distance control set to max (60 yards) but in that mode it automatically sets the speed to 5 so it wouldn't work. I could run behind it at speed 9 but that would be a 60 yard sprint!

Yep, also Roger mentioned that they are trying to focus on rental fleets at courses so having a detachable piece like a remote would be a liability. My buddy's dad who is retired plays with a remote cart (not sure of the brand) but I think after a while you just get used to having a remote in your pocket.

Yeah, it definitely folds and unfolds easier than my sun mountain reflex but that is a very old push cart.

So this is turning into as much a bag test as it is an electric push cart test! Haven't had a chance to test the Easilock function but will be on the range tonight and will just mount the bag to the cart for testing purposes. Moved my entire bag over and found a few differences from my Datrek Light II bag. The valuables pockets are deeper so more space for bigger phones. I have a Note 20 Ultra so fairly large phone that I will test the fit. I use my phone for the Grint during rounds so not that it would stay in there. The cooler pocket is really big. I can fit a 6 pack of seltzer water with room for ice and whatever other canned beverages you may be sneaking bringing on to the course...

I can also fit (though not at the same time as a 6 pack) my 1.5L insulated water bottle and the compartment still zips up. I drink a lot of water during a round (sometimes 3 or 4L in the heat of summer) so the big cooler pocket is a big plus for me especially if I plan on walking more rounds this summer!
 


Seltzer water mixed with barley and hops for me please [emoji41]

Saw some of the comments about hills. Anyone have super steep hills on the courses they play? Feel like almost every hole at my home course has steep hills. Here is an example of a typical hole at my home course. This hole I don't even consider to be one with that steep of hills relative to other holes.

I always walk (with a push cart). Its rough in the fall/winter rainy season, mud makes walking up and down hills even more tiring.

Yesterday I let the cart go up a fairly small but steep hill at my range. It actually flipped up like the scene in Cars with the tractors in the field. First time that happened but as @Tpoole22 mentioned, we don't have the wheelie bar in the back like the remote unit does as it is expected that you will be hands off with the remote units. I think it was because the speed was too fast going up. I think I had it on setting 5. As I was picking it back up, I noticed there is some sort of differential or other feature that makes the wheel on one side stop while the other side kept spinning. May be a safety feature to protect the motor or internal components from damage in such a situation. Will try to get a video of it next time.

Quick video and picture of the Easilock function. The studs fit into the slots on the "tongue" of the cart and really do keep the bag from moving. It is still easy to remove the bag if you lift straight up. Good function and I will have to test on rough ground to see if the bag stays on without the lower bag strap.
