MOTOACTV Software Upgrade 6.6

Exciting news from MOTOACTV!

We're always finding ways to perform better-just like you. And we're proud to announce a new software upgrade for MOTOACTV featuring important enhancements like the new Golf  "Beta" Software.

To install the latest software, just connect your MOTOACTV device to your PC or Mac (cable included) and you'll be prompted to download and install. It's free and easy!

New  Features


GPS Yardage From your Wrist

Play over 20,000 courses globally and see your distance to the front, center and back of green, as well as distance to the hazards-all from your wrist. No more fumbling with laser finders, phone apps, or rummaging through your bag. It also contains the PAR information for all your favorite courses.



MOTOACTV keeps track of your scorecards, clubs and key stats like, the number of putts taken and even the greens in regulation that you hit. You can even customize your virtual golf bag with the clubs that you own and the distances that you hit each one.



MOTOACTV syncs your rounds wirelessly @ MOTOACTV.com where you get an unparalleled virtual representation of your round using a satellite view of the course. Move your mouse over the arc of the ball flight and pull up details of the shot you played.  You can also keep every scorecard for reference, and similar to other MOTOACTV workouts you can share your rounds with friends. Plus, see how the pros like Bubba Watson play on select courses before you play them yourself.


See your biometrics during the round, like distance walked and calories burned.
