2.4.3 Play Golf
From the Main Menu (See Figure 3 above) tap the Play Golf option. You will then be able to select
available ProMode® courses by tapping on the PRO MODE COURSES option. If you wish to play a
course in BasicMode, or GoMode, you can select the country where your course is located, and navigate
to the specific golf course.
Note: The upro mx’s electronics provide unmatched GPS performance. Satellite acquisition typically
occurs in less than one minute when you are positioned outdoors with an unobstructed view of
the sky.
If your upro mx has achieved satellite lock, you will automatically be provided with a list of nearby golf
courses, with the distance to the course listed to the right.
Courses available in Basic Mode and
GoMode® will just show the distance, but courses available with ProMode® imagery will display the
ProMode® icon.
When selecting a course, you will be provided with basic information about the course including city, state
or province, country, and map version.
Click Play to begin your round.
2.5 BasicMode
Your upro mx contains more than 25,000 pre-loaded courses which you can use without additional fees
required. There are two modes with which to access these pre-loaded courses. The first mode, called
Basic Mode, gives distances to the green center, front and back as well as all hazards. Basic Mode
consists of two views, the Green View and the Hazard View.
2.5.1 Green View
As shown in below Figure 6a, the Green View displays distances to the front, center and back of the green.
upro mx User Guide (v1.0) ©2011 Callaway Golf Company Page 10 of 24 Figure 6a: BasicMode
Figure 6b: Basic Mode
Green View
Hazard View
2.5.2 Hazard View
The Hazard View (Figure 6b) displays distances to each hazard as well as the distance to clear each
hazard or object on the course. There is no limit to the number of hazards that can be displayed in the
Hazard View and the hazards are displayed in order of proximity to your current location.
2.5.3 Shot Tracking
Distances of your individual shots can be measured by using the Shot Tracking function from either screen
in Basic Mode. Start a measurement by tapping the Shot Tracking icon in the lower right hand corner of the
screen (See Figure 4 on Page 9). A screen will pop up asking you to choose the club used on that shot.
Once you have selected the club you are tracking, you will be returned to the previous screen, and a
running total of the shot distance will be displayed in the lower right hand corner of the screen, including
the number of shots you have tracked.
When you have reached your ball, press the lower right hand corner of the screen again to end the shot.
You will be presented with several options – See Figure 7 below.
uPro User Guide (v1.5) ©2011 Callaway Golf Company Page 11 of 24 Figure 7: Shot Tracking Options
2.5.4 On-Screen Indicators
In BasicMode, there are several indicators that provide status during play. These indicators provide the
time, battery level and satellite signal strength as shown below in Figure 8.
Signal Strength

Battery Level
Figure 8: Basic Mode Indicators
upro mx User Guide (v1.0) ©2011 Callaway Golf Company Page 12 of 24 The satellite strength indicator provides status on the state of the GPS. When the GPS is locked (obtained
a position fix) then this indicator will show between one and five bars. If the GPS has not obtained a lock
then there will be no bars highlighted.
2.6 GoMode®
In addition to BasicMode, your new upro mx comes with the ability to utilize our powerful GoMode® option
to enhance your understanding of your approach shots.
By clicking on the Mode button on the right hand side of the device while in BasicMode, you will toggle
between these BasicMode and GoMode®.
2.6.1 AnyPoint® Technology within GoMode®
You can access AnyPoint technology by taping the tab at the bottom left corner of the screen. See Section
2.7.4 for more information on AnyPoint technology.
2.7 ProMode®
Your upro mx can be enhanced through the download and use of the patented ProMode® technology.
This powerful information tool encompasses a variety of features that allow you to get the best information
for each shot in the most intuitive way. The most common method for entering ProMode® from BasicMode
is by simply pressing the Mode button on the right side of the device (See Figure 1 above). Pressing this
button at anytime will toggle back and forth between ProMode®, Go Mode®, and BasicMode.
Note: You can purchase and download ProMode® courses from www.callawayuxplore.com at any
time after your purchase and registration.
2.7.1 SmartView Technology
Upon entering ProMode, the uPro dynamically generates the most appropriate view of the course for your
next shot. This patented technology allows you to cycle through two additional views with press of the OFN
button. Based on your location on the course and the layout of the hole, three different SmartViews are
dynamically generated. An example of one of these views is shown in Figures 9a and 9b below.
uPro User Guide (v1.5) ©2011 Callaway Golf Company Page 13 of 24 Figure 9a: Fairway SmartView
Figure 9b: Green SmartView
The distances are constantly updating while in ProMode as your position changes. Additionally, the uPro
identifies your current position on the image of the course by displaying a red diamond character. As your
position changes, the uPro will continually update your position on the image as well.
2.7.2 Pan and Zoom
The uPro also allows you to zoom in and out and pan anywhere you like on the hole. There is a zoom
slider at the bottom of the touch screen which allows you to zoom in to any level you desire. You can also
double-tap the screen and it will automatically zoom in. To zoom out, you can double-tap the screen again.
If you wish to pan in any direction, you simply swipe up or down on the screen to view your desired portion
of the hole.
2.7.3 Displayed Distances in ProMode®
Depending on the zoom level, the number of features in view and the font size, it may not be feasible or
practical to show all distances at the same time superimposed on the image. The uPro’s software
dynamically determines what distances will be displayed and which ones will be hidden. A colored dot, or
reading point, located next to the distance reading is used to show the precise location corresponding to
the distance being shown. The table below illustrates the meaning of each of these colored coded reading
points:
upro mx User Guide (v1.0) ©2011 Callaway Golf Company Page 14 of 24 White
Red
Indicates corresponding distance being displayed is a reading from the
green, either center, front or back.
Indicates corresponding distance being displayed is a reading from a
bunker or other feature on the golf course.
Indicates that a distance would normally be displayed for this precise
Yellow
location but is currently hidden due to lack of space on the screen to
display this distance. Selecting a different SmartView or increasing the
zoom level will allow the distance to be displayed.
2.7.4 AnyPoint® (Measure Functionality)
Our AnyPoint technology represents a hybrid of traditional laser and GPS capability, allowing you to
enhance your understanding of the hole including obstacles you can and cannot see. Due to the extremely
precise imagery used on the uPro, you have the ability to measure to and from any point on the course
with exceptional accuracy.
To reach this helpful feature, tap the crosshairs icon in the lower left of the screen. There will be two
measurement lines that can be mover around the hole to get distances from where you are to anywhere
you like, and a second lay-up distance. First, touch the point you’d like to move, you will notice that the
point turns red. You are able to then drag the point to your desired measurement location, or you can use
the OFN to precisely place the point at your desired location.
uPro User Guide (v1.5) ©2011 Callaway Golf Company Page 15 of 24 Figure 10: AnyPoint Measurement
During a measurement, you can also change zoom levels if you would like. Exiting Measure Mode can be
done at any time by tapping the tab on the lower left of the screen.
2.8 Shot Tracking
Shot Tracking gives you the ability to select the club you use for each shot and let the device keep track of
your yardage. You will be able to build an averages distance for each club in your bag by consistently
tracking your shots during your rounds.
See Section 2.5.3 above for instructions on how to operate.
2.9 Score Keeping
You can keep your score, and the score of up to 3 playing partners with your upro mx.
After clicking Play Golf, and selecting the course you want to play, you will be prompted to select your stats
settings. If you select the scorecard, you will then have the option to select Fairways Hit, GIR (Greens in
Regulation), and Putts. Choose your selections, and click the Green Check Mark at the lower right-hand
corner of the screen.
upro mx User Guide (v1.0) ©2011 Callaway Golf Company Page 16 of 24 The next screen allows you to enter in your initials, and the initials of your playing partners. You can
