Garmin Approach G5 Touchscreen Reviews:
This unit is great for the golfer that travels and wants more intricate info on the course. It provides yardages to hazards and traps as well as being able to move the flag to a more precise position for the approach shots. Well worth the money since there’s nothing more to pay after you buy it.
Have used it on multiple courses and love the way it performs. On a course we had never played before, we used the feature that allowed us to project where we wanted to lay up and it helped us in our course management tremendously. We actually shot our average score on this difficult course. It also helped with the ability to place the flag on the green. Since these were large greens, it helped our yardage tremendously and ended up with only 26 putts on large, undulating greens.
The Garmin Approach G5 is everything I wanted in a golf gps. Easy to use. No subscription fee. No golf courses to download. Very accurate. Well built and waterproof. I have used this in Florida where every course I played was available. I live in upstate NY and I haven’t found a course yet that isn’t on the Garmin Approach G5.
Easy to use right out of the box. Great price thru Amazon. I chose the Garmin Approach because it has no additional fees. Free updates from the Garmin website as they are available. Most all courses in my region are featured. You can look to see courses in your area also from the website. Great for playing courses when you travel. The GPS seems to be very accurate with the distance to the pin or a hazard. Zoom in feature lets you change pin location for even more accuracy. Rugged, Water Resistant Construction, Good Battery Life. Definitely a great choice.
