Excerpt: The Garmin Approach G3 is what you would expect but does not blow you away. The best feature on the device is measuring your shot either from tee box to fairway or fairway to green. The device seems to be accurate but small and not easy to use.
Excerpt: This GPS was good but had its troubles. First, it had trouble finding you location on Earth. It could not find the courses I play at if it was not my home course. Also, the battery life was dreadful. If I made it through two rounds it was a miracle.
Excerpt: I bought this G3 unit from the Golfsmith store in Palm Desert on 7/09/2011. I waited a week to get back home in Northern California before I set it up and used it. It was easy enough to do and worked fine for about 4 rounds. Then when I turned it on, I could not turn it off.
