Reviewing the Trackman iO home golf simulator

Trackman, known for its state-of-the-art technology in the golf world, has introduced the overhead-mounted Trackman iO Launch Monitor, specifically designed for users looking to enhance their indoor golf experience with a home Trackman golf simulator.

Created for golf enthusiasts wanting a top-notch indoor setup, the Trackman iO seamlessly combines radar, infrared, and high-speed imaging to deliver unmatched precision and performance. And the Trackman iO price is more manageable than the Trackman 4.Press release photo 2



The Trackman iO boasts a blend of photometric and radar capabilities at its core, delivering real-time data on key metrics like 3D spin and spin axis. With high-speed cameras recording movements at 4,600 frames per second and radar tracking in tow, players can expect exceptional accuracy.

A standout feature of the Trackman iO is its impact video replay, offering players valuable insights into their ball striking, swing dynamics, and ball flight.


Prospective Trackman iO buyers will have the choice between two packages: the home package and the home complete package.

With the home package, users can enjoy a driving range with ball data (more details below), on-course practice options, and access to 50 real golf courses and three fun games.

Opting for the home complete package will grant users all the features of the home package, as well as club data, shot analysis including impact replay, a performance center, and access to all golf courses and games.


Complementing its hardware prowess is the Trackman Performance Studio software, offering a myriad of options ranging from top-notch training modules to family-friendly games. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a casual player, Trackman caters to all ages and skill levels with its comprehensive suite of features.

Unlike traditional setups, the Trackman iO's ceiling-mounted design eliminates the need for floor space, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a refined simulator setup without compromising on performance. With no minimum distance requirements in front or behind the ball, players can enjoy unparalleled flexibility in their practice sessions.



In order to properly use the Trackman iO, it is essential to follow the recommended mounting requirements for optimal performance. By adhering to Trackman's guidelines, the device must be mounted between 9’4” to 10’ above the hitting surface, with a preferred height of 9’8”.

The unit should be positioned 3’3” to 3’5” in front of the tee. For screen to tee positioning, there is a minimum of 8’2” for Trackman iO, however, Carl's Place recommends at least10' between impact screen and tee for safety, screen longevity, and other reasons. By following these specifications, you can ensure seamless functionality and unlock the full potential of this cutting-edge technology.


While many high-end launch monitors demand a somewhat robust PC setup, the Trackman iO takes it up a notch. To ensure optimal performance, Trackman recommends the following specifications for your PC:

  • Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • 32 GB RAM
  • Intel i7 or i9 3.4 GHz processor
  • Nvidia RTX 4070Ti graphics card
  • 1TB SSD storage
  • Dual 1GBit/s Ethernet ports
  • Laptop compatibility: Not Applicable

The elevated PC requirements stem from the Trackman iO's reliance on the graphics card processor, rather than an onboard processor. Keep in mind that Trackman Performance Studio does not support Iris Xe graphics cards or AMD processors.

In recent years, the fact that Trackman would offer a launch monitor targeting home use at a more reasonable cost would have been hard to believe.

While it still falls on the higher end of the budget spectrum, its pricing is becoming more competitive with other popular home options such as Uneekor and Foresight launch monitors.

The Trackman iO revolutionizes indoor golf with its cutting-edge technology, user-friendly design, and versatile software options. Whether you want to improve your skills, play virtual golf, or enjoy a friendly game, the Trackman iO offers a top-of-the-line experience.
