Safety recommendations for Power Assist mode

While in Power Assist mode, the following safety precautions should be followed:

  1. The ForeCaddy should always be steered manually when making a turn. When making a sharp turn, push the handle down to lift the front of the ForeCaddy upward to assist turning.
  2. On complex turns or road sections, when the ForeCaddy is stopped, press the deceleration button to switch into neutral mode. This makes it easier to maneuver if you need to stop the ForeCaddy (without sliding). To resume Power Assist mode, press the Power Assist button again after pushing or pulling the ForeCaddy.
  3. When the ForeCaddy is connected to the remote control in a stopped state, press the acceleration button to move the ForeCaddy forward automatically. Press the Power Assist button or the stop button on the remote control to stop the ForeCaddy. The ForeCaddy will automatically switch to standby mode if its distance from the remote exceeds 10 feet.

MODE 3: REMOTE CONTROL

UPDATE: Firmware 5.0

Firmware 5.0 adds speed control to Remote Control mode. It also
improves turning while in Remote Control mode and decreases the
ForeCaddy weaving in Follow mode.

REMOTE CONTROL: Firmware 5.0

Firmware 5.0 allows you to change the speed of the ForeCaddy while in Remote Control mode. To enter Remote Control mode, press the Remote Control Button button. While in Remote mode, quickly press the control stick in the forward direction and release. This will put the ForeCaddy in 1st speed. Quickly press and release forward again for 2nd speed, and again for 3rd speed (top speed). While the ForeCaddy is in forward motion, you can turn left and right with the remote. You can decrease the speed by quickly pressing the control stick in the backward direction and releasing. You can repeat this until the ForeCaddy goes back to a stopped position. To go in reverse, quickly press back on the control stick and release while the ForeCaddy is stopped. To stop the ForeCaddy at any point, quickly press Remote Power Button on the remote control. After pressing Power Button you will need to press Remote Control Button again to use the remote functions.

Safety recommendations for Remote Control mode

While in Remote Control mode, the following safety precautions should be followed:

  1. Practice operating the ForeCaddy in a field or large, obstacle-free area prior to using on the golf course.
  2. Always inspect your environment for potential obstacles or dangers prior to operating in remote mode.
  3. Never operate the ForeCaddy remotely near vehicular traffic (roadways) or in areas with dense pedestrian traffic.
  4. Never operate the ForeCaddy remotely on steep hills, near water features, or other natural or man-made obstacles that may result in damage or injury.
  5. Immediately disengage the ForeCaddy from Remote Control mode in the event of a potential accident, or if an accident has occurred.

MODE 3: FOLLOW (BETA)

To activate Follow mode, stand IN FRONT of the ForeCaddy.
Press the Follow Button button and then begin walking (the button will illuminate green).
The ForeCaddy will begin to follow, and will maintain the speed you are walking.

Follow Mode

To exit Follow mode, come to a stop and allow the ForeCaddy to come to a rest,
then simply press the Remote Button button on the remote to instantly switch to Power Assist
mode (Blue).

To resume Follow mode, simply press Follow Button and the ForeCaddy will resume following.

Safety recommendations for Follow mode

WARNING: Follow mode must only be used on an open field or fairway.

PLEASE NOTE: Follow mode is still in BETA.
The Follow mode is undergoing testing and development and therefore requires skilled use and thoughtful execution. Please use caution when using the ForeCaddy in Follow mode (BETA).

PLEASE NOTE: It is normal for the ForeCaddy to “weave” slightly while in Follow Mode (BETA). When encountering obstructions that may be close to this 15 foot-wide safety zone, reduce your walking speed. The cart will also slow down and will weave less.

While in Follow mode, the following safety precautions should be followed:

  1. NEVER use Follow mode when the golfer is behind the ForeCaddy. Always make sure there are no obstacles between the ForeCaddy and remote control prior to use.
  2. NEVER use Follow mode around tee boxes, greens, or steep terrain. Use Follow mode ONLY when past the teeing area and before the green. (For more information, see mode usage on page 16.)
  3. For best results, be sure to wear the remote control on a belt on the backside of the hip to insure it has close, unobstructed access to the cart. You don’t need to see the buttons to operate them; simply practice switching from green to blue and back again by pressing each button on the remote.

Safety clearance in Follow mode (BETA)

While using Follow mode BETA, always allow for 7.5 feet of obstruction-free space on both sides of the ForeCaddy for safe operation.
