The CaddyTrek can easily be transported in your vehicle and checked as baggage with the exception of the battery. Lithium batteries of the size used by the CaddyTrek are restricted on most commercial flights. Check with your carrier for specific instructions and restrictions.
The Caddytrek typically follows within six paces of the golfer, but it takes some trial and error to recognize terrain, obstacles and how to move with the unit to get the most out of the experience. If a golfer wants to move quickly, the CaddyTrek can move faster in remote control mode by pressing the forward toggle arrow on the handset.
The CaddyTrek can be used for 27 to 36 holes depending on the golfer and the course being played. We recommend that you charge the battery after your round of golf to always ensure it may be used for maximum play.
The CaddyTrek is designed on a proprietary robotic system using advanced sensing and motion control technology. Sensors on the CaddyTrek pick up the signals from the remote handset carried by the golfer, calculating distance and angle.
The battery is enclosed in a limited waterproof housing unit to eliminate exposure to rain or any outdoor elements. The rear wheel motors are also sealed to prevent exposure to rain and other outdoor elements. The handset can withstand limited exposure to moisture or rain, but it is not recommended. However, if the cart goes into a lake or water hazard, depending on the amount of time submerged in water, there could potentially be problems to the internal electronics.
For starters, it is always important to keep the CaddyTrek under user control. Tracking modes, including Follow and Marching are designed primarily for wide-open spaces like the fairway. When encountering rough terrain or unpredictable environments such as a parking lot, try using Remote Mode or set the motors to neutral and push the cart around obstructions.
The battery can be charged inside the unit with the provided battery charger (included with purchase). For users on the go, the battery can be removed from the unit and charged at home or in the club house. Battery charger uses a regular 110V household outlet.
It takes about 6 hours for battery to restore to a full charge.
The first thing to keep in mind is to never misplace the handset as this is what controls the unit. Whenever you are in doubt, whether it is during Follow Mode, Marching Mode or Remote Mode, you can press the STOP button multiple times to revert to Standby Mode. This will lock the motors and stop the unit immediately. Practice this exercise before use.
