The Garmin Approach G3 Golf GPS features a 2.6” sunlight-readable, touchscreen display for easy operation and keeps score for up to four players. This waterproof unit is preloaded with detailed CourseView maps, a database of more than 12,000 golf courses in the U.S and Canada, and there are no subscription fees. The detailed golf course maps provide precise distance information about fairways, hazards and greens from any point on the course. As you move about the course, the unit continuously updates your position and shows you the distance to each target.
great on the course
Pros: If you play a variety of courses this is the tool for you. It is much faster than a visual range finder, doesn’t require line of sight, and accurate with yard sticks on the course. If you are off the fairway it gives you accurate range to the center of green. Very handy if you are choosing between your 85 yd. wedge and 100yd #9 iron. The courses preprogrammed into it cover all my local courses, which is about a 50 mile radius of south suburban Chicagoland. It took about 5 strokes off my game, except on my home course.
Cons: It does go threw batteries, but if you can't afford batteries you shouldn't be playing golf. Rechargable batteries is an option as well. I keep a fresh pair of AA batties in my bag.
Other Thoughts: As you play the course it always knows which hole you are on and updates the yardage to the pin. I love it.
