Summary: I've used this for a year and a half. The accuracy is good. It lacks specific course info (trees, some bunkers etc...) that some of the other units offer and, if you've got large fingers like I do, the screen can be difficult to navigate. I usually only get a round and a half (27 holes) in before the batteries go south, so carry extras w/you. The screen is hard to see in direct sunlight, but..........all these things can be fixed if you spend more for a better unit.
Hardware Great, Software OK, Product Support WEAK!

Summary: I'll try not to repeat past reviews. HARDWARE: BATTERIES: Use rechargeable batteries but do not buy the battery recharging accessories. I plugged in the 120 volt recharger to my G-5 and after 14 hours the batteries were not recharged. I purchased a real recharger that shows hours remaining for full charge. When my 14 hour batteries were put into the real recharger it indicated 5 hours for full recharge. five hours later my batteries were fully charged.
Summary: This Garmin is heavy on ordinary batteries which has led me to buy a rechargeable unit with 4 batteries and they do the job very nicely .some times they last for 2x18 rounds of golf. I have connected this unit to my Garmin Express which allows me to register each Garmin unit and check for updates on the net which would be beneficial as i have played some course"s in Ireland which are out of date on the GARMIN approach Golf GPS. Otherwise it does what it says on the box.
Summary: This golf GPS unit is so nearly perfect. It has all the courses I have played on or wished to play on in UK and Ireland, and seems to cover everywhere from Italy to the Arctic. It makes club selection for those difficult shots over hazards a breeze - just go out and measure the real distance you hit each club so you no longer have to guess... The display is good in brilliant sunshine, the machine is waterproof but... you cannot see very much in rainy, dull light.
Summary: A good tool to have. Recognize the golf cours but not the hole. Graphs can be improve with different colors. Service not very available. Help to save shuts. Un bon outil à posséder. Reconnaît le parcours de golf, mais non le trou sur le parcours. Les graphes pourraient être améliorés avec plus de couleurs. Le service à la clientèle pourrait aussi faire mieux. Aide à faire moins de coups.
