With the V300 Plus, Sonocaddie is starting to rival SkyCaddie with the sheer number of devices they have available: 6 versus SkyCaddie’s whopping 7 devices. A marketer’s dream!
The Sonocaddie V300 Plus has a color screen and comes preloaded with basic distance information, including course hazards, targets and a graphic indication of whether they are on the left, center or right side of the hole. It does not, however, provide a map of the hole. Accessing hole maps, which include both color graphic layouts and satellite images, requires an additional membership fee of $29.95 per year.
Lastly, though you may expect the V300 and V300 Plus are the same physical device but with different features, they aren’t. The V300 Plus is slightly lighter and thinner, with a plastic exterior. The V300 has a rubberized exterior, and comes with graphic course maps included (and slightly more expensive), though not satellite images and has slightly different membership options.
Though we haven’t tested the V300 Plus, the device appears to be quite similar to the V500. The hardware is slightly different, but features and functionality appear to be the same.
