I had a beeper installed on my Yesteryear cart to signify that the turn signal was still on.
But Gordon's Garage did an awful job so the beeper rarely beeps.
Of course I'm getting it fixed, but I'm not impressed with GG's workmanship.
And the line-ups at GG are huge, even with an appointment.
Take it back and tell them it doesn't work. Tell them you are a friend of Gracie the enforcer.

I would think you can have an aftermarket backup camera added.

I assume you've seen a back-up camera which is low.
I've never seen a back-up camera on a golf cart. With golf clubs aboard, it's difficult to see.
I love the idea of a back-up camera, could it be adjusted to be higher?

New carts have them incorporated into their rear view mirror (the one inside the cart). The camera is in a newly designed "third brake light" on the rear of the cart. The new brake light also has white lights which serve as a backup indicator. I'm not sure if the Brownwood cart store has one on display, but as of a few weeks ago there was one at the LSL location.

1. An adjustable driver's seat. I'm short. My foot doesn't reach the pedal all the way so I have to "tiptoe" the gas and brake. Hubby is taller, so adding a block to the pedals would be a real pain in the butt because we'd have to add them and take them off every time "the other" of us is driving that day.
2. Safety glass windshield and wiper.
3. Factory installed seatbelts.
4. A hybrid system that includes electric, gas, and solar panels on the roof.
5. It must be some hideous gaudy shade of orange and purple. Maybe plaid. If I can't have a bend-over lady in my front yard, dammit, I'm gonna make my statement with my golf cart! (just kidding, though orange is a great color for a golf cart I think)
6. Rollover bars.
7. A fog horn.

Orange is chosen by many. And other bright colors. I am glad you are kidding about the bend over lady.

I remember how skeptical I was about this place after seeing how great it appeared to be after seeing it a couple of times. I questioned many of the things that you are questioning and I was met with hostility and negativity, just as you are.

That is because many people who live here all year around and enjoy it are just like many other Americans defending their home town.

There are so few really negative comments that many people will think anyone who is negative is a troll.

What is important to remember is this; we are a true melting pot of geographic culture here. There are people living here from all States and they bring with them their mini cultures and their upbringing and their social attitudes. We are predominantly traditional people and predominantly ...not rich. We are also predominantly law abiding and rule following but that does not mean we are not creative and very talented and interesting. Wait until you hear the musical talent and see the artistic talent we have here.

What I am trying to say is this. You will find friends here who look at things the way you do. They will be exited to join you in your new adventures. You will find friends here who do NOT look at things the way you do. Older people are very wise and have seen just about everything in the five decades plus that most of us are. Older people are often outspoken and often they are the silent and will just leave you alone if they don't like you. You can be either, whatever fits you comfortably. There are lots of us here. Choose your friends and choose your groups. We have tons of room right now in the high season in the classes I attend at Laurel Manor which are at this time a painting class, a craft class and a ceramics class. I try to avoid the more widely attended exercise classes. Not because they are crowded but because I just hate to exercise.

I will look for your orange golf cart.
