RICHMOND, Va., April 10, 2012- Bag Boy, the No. 1 name in golf cart innovation, has introduced a healthier alternative to conventional motorized golf carts with its new electric walking cart the Navigator Elite.
Designed to make walking the course easy and enjoyable the Navigator Elite features Straight Tracker Technology™, a unique gyroscope navigation system that maintains a straight path even on the toughest terrain.
"The Navigator Elite is one of the most innovative and lightweight electric carts on the market today," said Craig Ramsbottom, President, Dynamic Brands, Golf Division.
"The cart features new technology like an ultra-lightweight lithium battery and a new navigation system designed to climb and descend hills with ease. Another unique feature is the high-tech interactive screen that looks like an automobile dashboard and monitors battery charge, distance traveled, time, service, and maintenance schedule."
The Navigator Elite Highlights:
Straight Tracker Technology ™ featuring unique gyroscope navigation system will keep the cart navigating in a straight line on the course
Full directional remote control (forward, left, right and reverse) with nine speeds
Color interactive screen that shows battery charge status, distance traveled, time, service and maintenance schedule
Durable aluminum frame

Fourth wheel under battery for added stability, plus low profile, wide wheels for easy maneuverability

Number of convenience features: adjustable handle, sand/seed holder, swivel drink holder, umbrella holder and storage compartment on handle
The Navigator Elite folds down in seconds with just two simple steps. The folded dimensions are 35 inch x 24 inch x 14 inch, making it easy to fit into a car trunk.
It is also backed by a two-year limited warranty and is available in dark gray. The suggested retail of the Navigator Elite is $2,295.95.
"Walking is a tradition of the game that has gotten lost with the use of motorized golf carts," said Ramsbottom.
"Research shows that people who walk the course not only improve their health but play at a more consistent pace and are able to visualize their shots better. As an industry leader, we feel it is our responsibility to keep innovating products that make walking more enjoyable for golfers of every age."
