Yamaha Adds GPS Screen Option To YamaTrack Solution
Newnan, Ga. (October 27, 2016) – Yamaha Golf-Car Company has added yet another layer of innovation, function and affordability to its cutting-edge YamaTrack GPS Solution with the addition of a customized GPS screen that integrates a golf car to the course’s cloud-based fleet management control center.
The 8″ bracket-mounted YamaTrack GPS screen now gives a course two options for managing its golf car fleet. YamaTrack’s base option has a control box built into the golf car frame that wirelessly interfaces with the control center at the course. While players use the YamaTrack app on their mobile devices, the golf shop can monitor pace-of-play, ensure proper fleet rotation and security, even set geofences to control cart traffic. The control box teams with the YamaTrack mobile device app to allow players to gain shot-to-hole yardages while also offering two-way communication with the golf shop. The YamaTrack GPS screen provides golfers with in-car yardage measurement, hole flyovers, pro tips, two-way messaging with the pro shop and many other features.
The screen can be mounted to any Yamaha golf car, and equipping temporary tournament fleet cars with the same GPS system as the main fleet is quick and easy.
Fleet Management and Car Control
With the YamaTrack fleet management system the golf staff can now track the location of every golf car on the course, track pace of play, dispatch a marshal to where play might lag, automatically slow down a golf car approaching steep or winding terrain and when necessary even shut down a car (DC electric golf cars only). The course superintendent can similarly track the location of all utility vehicles and maintenance equipment through their cloud-based system on any internet-connected device.
YamaTrack can even create on-course geofences to establish a virtual perimeter around sensitive environmental areas, rain-soaked turf, green surrounds and the like. With the fleet back in storage, YamaTrack diagnostics can assess and maximize golf car rotation, battery life and amp hour usage. The system’s Shutdown and Lockdown features convey an added measure of security, both day and night.
Golfers connect with the course through either the course-branded YamaTrack mobile app (available for both Android and iPhone) or through the YamaTrack GPS Screen. This feature allows the golf shop staff and a golfer to interact through both the on-car GPS screen and a mobile device app. In both cases, the golfer benefits by having access to vivid course diagrams, precise golf course yardages and food & beverage ordering from the course.
For the golf shop, the player connectivity features are custom branded to the course and are designed to generate incremental revenue through faster food orders at the turn, as well as receive player feedback after the round if the player chooses to “rate the course”.
Since its launch at the PGA Merchandise Show in January, the free YamaTrack Player App has been downloaded to 14,545 mobile devices and used during 75,800 rounds played. Additionally, the app has been activated at 1,257 golf courses across the U.S.
YamaTrack offers integrated software programs that support a variety of golf course operations, including tee-time reservations, food & beverage management, inventory control and customer profile information.
YamaTrack’s internet-based facility management software, course information, yardages and graphics were developed in conjunction with iGolf, a leading provider of technology content and services for the location-based industry.

What is YamaTrack?
YamaTrack is Yamaha’s solution to bring affordable GPS to every golf course. YamaTrack offers a total fleet management solution, including golf car control for enhanced visibility and peace of mind.
Why should my course consider YamaTrack?
Courses should consider YamaTrack, especially if they already have a Yamaha fleet because it will allow the course to easily keep track of their fleet, easily manage their course, optimize their course based on customer activity and attract new customers using the free consumer app for mobile devices.
What capabilities does YamaTrack have?
YamaTrack has many capabilities, the main one is to keep track of your course’s fleet. It can keep track of your golf car fleet using cloud technology and affordable “Brain boxes” hooked into each golf cars wiring harness. The dimensions of the box are very small, approximately 2″ by 2″ by 3/4″.
YamaTrack can also be used to create geofences (a type of boundary set by the golf course, that will slow or stop a fleet car going past those boundaries, it can also be set up to warn the driver that they are entering a restricted area). Additionally, YamaTrack will show the locations of all active fleet cars on the golf course at any time with complete remote control over the speed of the cars (only available for electric cars right now). Included with the “brain boxes” and YamaTrack is a DNA system that will help manage your golf course, should you choose to do so.
What is YamaTrack DNA?
DNA can be integrated into most aspects of your golf course. As you can see, it allows you to easily keep track of inventory, control your security cameras, organize scheduling, keep an up-to-date menu for your restaurant, see and control your fleet, etc. DNA is included with the purchase of GPS systems for your fleet and can be viewed by the management at the golf course that have the password. DNA does not have to be implemented for anything other than the asset tracker, it is just a free perk in owning a fleet equipped with YamaTrack GPS and all other features will be free to use if your would like. The interface is shown below:
What equipment do I need to use YamaTrack?
To use YamaTrack and DNA, you need a Yamaha fleet and also the “brain boxes” hooked up to some or all of your fleet cars. To view YamaTrack from your course all you need is a computer/electronic device with an internet connection and a web-browser. There is only one optional device available, If you have YamaTrack you may choose to purchase screens for some of your fleet cars to run the Yamaha consumer app. Again, this app is free to all of your customers after you activate it to use on their own devices and these screens for your fleet are completely optional.
