*If you are hitting into a screen and want to project e6 Connect onto it or are hitting into a net and want to project e6 Connect onto it, you can mirror your iPhone/iPad screen using either Apple AirPlay connected to AppleTV (some TVs and Projectors may have AirPlay built-in and not require AppleTV, check your specific model)
Purchase your Full Swing KIT here for $4,999 or montly payments with Affirm™ for as low as $139/month.
Review your options for E6 Connect plans that are compatible with the Full Swing KIT and make your purchase for as low as $299/annually.
Activate your E6 Connect License with your iPad or iPhone that you will be using to play & practice.
After you have activated your E6 Connect License and have charged your Full Swing KIT unit while updating its firmware to 1.15 (42) or greater, it’s time to get set up for your first round.
You are going to set your KIT 10 feet behind the golf ball and make sure that you have 8 feet (8 feet minimum, 10 feet maximum) in front of the ball for ball flight into your screen or net. The first time you use your KIT into your net/screen, it is time to align your target so your KIT placement is correct and you can mark where to place it behind you every time. The fastest way to do this without starting a practice session in the Full Swing App, use the side button to Set Target, shift unit until aligned to center of your net or screen.
From there connect your KIT to your iPhone/iPad using the e6 Connect App, you are ready to go!
