Garmin Approach G5, caddie digitale

29 April 2011
  • Excerpt: Un GPS per il golf? Per un profano l'idea può sembrare balzana eppure questo accessorio è meglio di un caddie. Per fare cosa? Innanzitutto puoi vedere la mappa dei campi in anteprima. Il G5 misura le distanze del colpo e quando ti muovi aggiorna di continuo le distanze dall'obiettivo; in qualsiasi parte ti trovi, sul display hai sempre a disposizione informazioni dettagliate sugli ostacoli e sul green.
