Good product and value.

curiousonline23, Ebay

  • Summary: Great durable product. Doesnt have always updated courses. Have found 3 in my area (central NY) in which it has old maps of the course... Other than that great device. Suggest rechargable batteries, it checks through batteries.

  • 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.

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. 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.

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. I am ordering another, but am looking to upgrade the case.

like all features except screen brightness..

msbullie1943, Ebay

  • Summary: well put together unit...would give 5 stars across board except for screen is not well lit as others...like features, and battery being replaceable AA's is good...understand that you can use premium batteries and display will be better, but pretty costly to do so..ability to access all courses at no cost is a biggie...compare to my buddy who is using one with fees, and they are always within a yard in distance..

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. So now I have to carry batteries in my golf bag. I wish it was rechargable, so I could just plug it into my car lighter.

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).

GArmin Approach G5

The Don, Amazon
12 January 2013
  • Summary: Have only used it twice since receiving it and played only nine holes each time; once on front nine the other time on back nine; battery life has been none issue so far for the two outings; using eneloop Ni-MH batteries. So far it works well though you must scroll through the first nine holes if starting on back nine. Have had no issues with the belt clip or viewing screen as stated in some of the reviews. Boots and finds course being played very quickly.
