    Company Seeks To Prevent Unauthorized Use Of Its Patented On-Screen
    Advertising and Position-Based Screen Scrolling Technologies

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 17 /CNW/ -- GPS Industries, Inc. (GPSI)
(OTC Bulletin Board:   GPSN), the world's leading provider of WiFi-enabled golf
management systems, announced today that it has filed suit for patent
infringement in the United States District Court for the Northern District of
Illinois against ProLink Holdings Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board:   PLKH), ProLink
Solutions, LLC, ABC National Television Sales, Inc., and LinksCorp, Inc.  The
suit alleges infringement of U.S. Patent No. 5,685,786, which relates to
on-screen display of centrally transmitted advertising and tournament
standings information.  GPSI has also asserted U.S. Patent No. 5,438,518,
which relates to the Company's position-based hole advance and screen
scrolling technology.  The Complaint also alleges that the ProLink companies
have made false representations in the marketplace and in connection with
financing activities that they own rights in the '518 patent, when in fact
they hold no interest in the patent are not authorized to utilize the
technology it covers.
    David Chessler, CEO of GPS Industries, offered the following comments:
"Today's filing is an important step in our strategy to establish the
Company's patent rights through the court system and to clear up the confusion
ProLink has attempted to create in the marketplace.  Our management team and
key investors are committed to pursuing this legal strategy to a successful
outcome.  GPS Industries has invested millions of dollars in its intellectual
patent portfolio.  We have a responsibility to our investors and shareholders
to vigorously defend these patents against any infringing parties. "
