Excellent range finder for the price

R. Cherye, Amazon
26 March 2015
  • Summary: Excellent range finder for the price. All my usual courses were preloaded and updated when I installed the software on my PC. I especially like the ability to determine distance to a specific hazard. Haven't used any of the scoring features so can't comment on them.

For the price it is a good golf GPS

Larry, Amazon
6 October 2014
  • Summary: For the price it is a good golf GPS. Sometimes the touch screen is hard to maneuver and other times I find it has either jumped holes or created lines of shot without touching it, just sitting in the cart. Distances are fairly accurate and has loads of courses.

good GPS with poor batery life

HairyBJJGUY, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • 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. The only draw back is the battery life

Wanted To Improve My Game

Ms. Mary S. Hewitt "Susan H.", Amazon
17 March 2014
  • 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.

Accuracy is good. Screen is a bit dim in the shade but bright in the sun

Gary Stowell "NEK SNPR", Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: I really like the fact that all courses are pre-loaded and available w/o having to download them. Also, course data updates are available for free should you feel the need. I hated the subscription model that Sky Caddy forces. Sky Caddy can also only hold 10 courses at a time... very inconvenient.

Get's it right and simple

Marshall Cromer, Amazon
31 July 2013
  • 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.

Great product-Poorly made case

Catmeow, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • 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.

This GPS works really well!

Ronbo "Ronbo415", Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: This GPS is easy to use, easy to read and provides more options then I intend to use. You can see it well in sunlight, in fact sometimes better than in shade. The major drawback, in my opinion, is you have to use AA batteries and there is no battery meter.

Good GPS

Robert J Giacini, Amazon
11 April 2013
  • Summary: I really like it. I need reading glasses for anything close but do not need it with the G5. It is also fine reading it in the sun. I did buy the rechargeable batteries and they last for up to 3 rounds. I don't use to keep score, only to track yardage.

Great golf GPS

s sobel, Amazon
30 March 2013
  • Summary: Love the full hole view where you can see the distances to all the hazards. I like using regular batteries so I can replace them right on the course (I use rechargeable s with one set in use and the other set recharging). Only complaint is its hard to see unless in direct sun
