Garmin Approach G3 Touchscreen Reviews:

Been a longtime Skycaddie user but bought the G3 recently. No annual fees, no 4 minute wait for the GPS to find the course I am on. Just turn on it and you’re ready to hit your first shot. Every course you need preloaded on it. The AA batteries last at least two rounds and I also bought some rechargeable batteries for future use.

I love my Approach 3. It already has tons of courses included. You don’t have to pay for any downloading as with other GPS devices. it is accurate and it really helps my game. Really durable too. I’ve drop it several times on the course.

Works as advertised. Very easy to use. Give you great information at a glance. I love that I no longer have to download courses or pay for downloads.

This is my first GPS. A great addition to my bag. The Garmin 3 is super easy to use. Loads fast and the yardages are right on! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good GPS at a low price.

I’ve had the G3 for 4 rounds now. It’s to easy. Garmin is hard to beat. Instructions not really needed. Golf buddy played around with it for five minutes and now he’s ordering his.
