Summary: The garmin golf GPS works well, it doesn't take long for the GPS to find your location. The features are very helpful, such as the one that tracks the distanses for your different irons/woods.
Summary: Well, I have had this for two years. I am not a fanatic at placing reviews about my purchases but thought this unit may prove to more challenging than others I've read about. This constant complaint about it being dark and hard to read is bogus. I read it just fine and don't need all sorts of back lighting to see what the course is like, my yardage or other needs. All this with my blended bifocals at 62. In the sun it shows up just fine.
Summary: This garmin is great on the course. It gives me distances to the waters/hazards and to the front/middle/and back of the green! It is a great product. It arrived in great condition and on time.
Summary: I now don't have to search for the markers. Simple fast and easy. They failed to say it didn't come with batteries which pissed me off. Bought rechargeable s and charger but I can't seem to charge it. Using AA for now. Only last 3 rounds.
Summary: I thought the Approach G5 was going to be a step up from my Golf Buddy World. The screen on the Approach is larger and the unit is waterproof. However, the unit itself is heavier than the Golf Buddy and somewhat bulky. It does not readily provide all of the information I would like to have, for example, on my Golf Buddy World golf gps, I am able to push a key, target, and it displays the distance to bunkers or water, the distance to clear and, of course, other pertinent...
Summary: This is a great product. It works really well on all of my local golf courses. The case is so poorly made. It wasn't clipping properly to the GPS and it fell off somewhere on the golf course. Of course, someone got a very nice, brand new Garmin that day. I am ordering another, but am looking to upgrade the case.
Summary: The Garmin Approach 5 golf GPS is a great devices and has all the tricks available a true golfer would want. It comes up very quickly when turned on and locates the course you desire. I have almost when three rounds on one charge except for the last 3 holes. Screen is very easy to see and all the features are easy to access and utilize. I made the right choice and would highly recommend this device to any golfer.
