Yes. The MLM normalizes data. This means the MLM does not take wind, weather, slope or elevation into consideration. It assumes a premium ball is being used. Since the MLM assumes you are at sea level, if you are located in an area with high altitude/elevation, you may see shorter distances appear on your MLM.
Yes, this is currently a premium membership feature. You can change the data points by starting your session and tapping on the bottom left-hand part of the screen (you should see three lines). Once you tap on the three lines, the second option is “Change Metrics”. Then select the three metrics you would like to be shown in instant feedback.
Overheating is due to your iPhone/iPad getting too hot. Generally, your iOS device is overheating more so from the direct sunlight/humidity than the actual temperature. To help prevent this, shade your MLM as much as possible, such as with your golf bag. Make sure all apps are closed out in the background of your device and just the MLM app is running. Taking off the case will also help with your phone not overheating as quickly.
Note: Please note iPhones made before the iPhone 11 are more prone to overheating.
The MLM requires a ball to be hit in order to receive data. Using SuperSpeed Sticks or other trainers with the MLM where you are not hitting a ball, will result in you not be shown any swing speed data.
If you are seeing your MLM change from green>blue>green but no data is appearing, please see the below steps to ensure proper set up and alignment:
1. The MLM is set up on a flat surface and not angled; if you are on a slant, use the MLM case to level it to the ball.
2. The MLM is at least 6 ft behind the ball and no more than 8ft.
3. The MLM is facing down the target line in order for ball flight to be seen. There needs to be at least 8ft of ball flight before hitting the net in order for data to trigger and at least 60-80 ft when hitting outdoor.
4. Make sure no objects are obstructing the camera view of the ball. Ex. Too tall of a mat, tall grass etc. The ball needs to be in view in order to track data.
5. Ball must be in view on the screen, if you cannot see the ball on the screen, the MLM will not be able to pick up its starting position.
6. Lighting: Wither your net is located indoors or outdoors, you need sufficient lighting. This includes at the beginning position of the ball as well as the ball flight. If the initial ball cannot be seen, you will not receive data, as well if the ball flight cannot be seen, you will not receive data. A room with overhead lighting filling the room is suggested.
7. If you have a magnetic phone case, remove before using MLM.
