The Mevo+ portable launch monitor lets you automatically record and sync videos from multiple cameras for instant review on your iOS devices.
You can record and clip videos of every shot on your mobile device and overlay your selected data parameters. Connect up to three mobile devices plus your FlightScope Mevo+ internal camera for the ultimate video experience.
With the free FS Golf app for iOS and Android, you get data margins and instant feedback, customizable trajectory view and data blocks, and data and video combined.
The FS Golf for PC (free with the 2023 Mevo+, $99 to upgrade to older model) gives you complete customization with up to four views at a time on your screen and a table of your data with averages.
When you add on the Mevo+ Pro Package, it's just bonkers ... You get a ton of additional data (for your short game too), plus D-Plane data.
And now, when you have the Pro Package, you can add on the Face Impact Location software upgrade ($499), which allows you to view the precise location of impact for every club and compare it to the data for that shot. Face Impact Location also adds two additional data parameters: lateral impact and vertical impact.
Bushnell Launch Pro
The Launch Pro is the only golf launch monitor in this comparison that has a display on the unit. Out of the box, this is where you see your data (no head metrics; those come with subscriptions) without the need of software, iPad, or computer.
To get more data and visualization, you have to get a subscription—Basic (free first year), Silver, or Gold—and this gives you FSX Pro and FSX 2020/Play options. The data visualization you can get from this (like the Launch Pro itself) is a whole other beast. FSX Pro is compatible with an iPad and now with PC (not Macs). Keep in mind, you have to have a tricked-out gaming computer to run FSX 2020/Play. Check out our Bushnell Launch Pro Buyer's Guide to learn more about system requirements.
