PowaKaddy CT6 GPS Electric Trolley Review

Last year’s PowaKaddy CT6 GPS electric trolley was an excellent option for golfers that wanted at-a-glance, front-middle-back distances on a trolley that folded down compactly. But there was room for improvement, something that PowaKaddy has addressed in 2021.

The first being the screen. Specifically, PowaKaddy has moved to a full touchscreen for the 2021 iteration rather than using two buttons underneath, which did get confusing at times. Once you work out that you access the different screens and features like hazards by swiping in different directions rather than endlessly tapping the icons along the bottom with no success, this certainly represents an enhancement in the user experience.

The screen is more readable and graphics have been freshened up to make them more cutting edge and create a more premium feel overall, although some might have preferred the middle distance to have remained larger in the display. The other big improvement we noticed was the folding system and how small it collapses down to.

The space that the CT6 GPS saves, with its ability to invert the wheels, is truly game changing if your car boot lacks storage room. We’ve found it provides ample space for your clubs, shoes and other bits and pieces with room to spare while also being quick and simple to erect when you arrive at the course.

The addition of the Automatic Distance Function will please many long-standing trolley users who can now set the trolley off towards the next tee at a specific distance so it is in the appropriate place to not hold up play once you finish the hole. There’s even somewhere to store your tees so you’re never caught short.

The latest battery design is significantly slimmer, lightweight and easy to put in position and turn on with a minimum of fuss. On a flat course of average length, we’re confident you would get two rounds of life out of it. You can even adjust the tracking of the front wheel in case it starts veering to one side.
