Waite until you have several places close buy that you would go to on a regular basis. I would only get one cart for now.

Nothing hurt by waiting and see if you think a cart would come in handy even before the connectivity. On the other hand, if you go buy a new 2019 right now, and pay cash for it, you can save $1000 over a new 2020. We bought a house a year and a half ago south of the turnpike and bought a cart the day after we signed the offer on the house. But we bought a used cart that was like new with low hours for about half the price of a new one. Recently sold that cart for exactly what I paid for it and bought a 2020. Cart is certainly not a requirement down here but we do use it quite a bit. Golf on rare occasions but the dog demands a ride at least once a day.

Out of curiosity, where did you purchase your used cart last year ?

I purchased through an individual that advertised it right here on TOTV. Most carts here, at least most of the newer'ish Yamahas, have hour meters on them. I bought a 4 year old cart with 140 hours on it. That's about half of the average number of hours for a single year. It was a great cart and still is for the new owner.

6 months in DeSoto. 2 cars, both paid for. Get 60 mpg on the Prius; about 30 on the Camry.

When connectivity finally happens, we plan to sell the older car, Camry, & get the golf car. Not before, per the wife unit.::

Plus one we don’t golf and have a golf cart.

We have friends who live in Ocala they have been to TV to shop and have dinner at Lake Sumter Landing. We rented a 6 passenger golf cart to give them a tour of what it looks like from the golf cart. They couldn’t believe how much they missed by driving around TV in a car.
