Still nothing about this new device on Bushnell’s website.

Yes. I currently play in France with weather in the 40's at sea level and I will go soon to South Africa with about 5750 feet of elevation and temperature in the 80's.
It's a difference of about 40 yards on a drive and 20 yards on a 7 iron which is huge!

I think this is great.  

Much like having the green maps of my own course allows me to "calibrate" my A.P.E. green reading with my feet every time I play, having this information available will allow the golfer to "calibrate" their numbers much, much better.

I wonder why Bushnell has not updated their website yet with the new offering?

They wanna keep selling their other products in the interim

Are they dropping prices of the current models once this is released?

Some stores might discount the X2 because it's the same price, 550$ but won't offer the same features. So they'll have to discount whatever stock they have left.

Doubtful, they just raised prices on all models a few months back, typically they dont do Rebates/discounts except at fathers Day and Christmas.

I can't wait for the day that I laser the pin on a par 3 and my rangefinder reads "Knock-down 7 iron, aim 3.1yd right".

I really hope someone annouces something cheaper with similar technology. I travel ALOT and play different courses in significantly different altitudes and always have trouble getting "calibrated". Its a must buy for those that travel.

Leupold’s rangefinders have taken account for elevation and temperature for years. They refer to it as “True Golf Range.” It’s on every rangefinder they sell with slope, not just the flagship models.

Apparently Bushnell is going to release a new rangefinder at the PGA show called the PRO XE which will factor in Altitude and Temperature.

"With the Pro XE, we take that adjusted distance one step further. The E is for elements - temperature and adjusted altitude have been factored into the “Play As” equation to give you the most accurate compensated distances ever."

Anyone with pictures or more infos?
this thing is sweet!

Worth waiting for the new model or just pull the trigger on the x2? Thoughts?

They're the same price and the XE offers more features...
It should come out late march. I know I'm waiting.

However if some sellers discount the X2, you dont need the extra features and you can't wait...

You can find brand new X2’s on the bay for a song now if you want to save some coin.
