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
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

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.
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: 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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Summary: I like this product. Bought it recently and have used it almost a dozen times. It is simple to use, sturdy, and effective. The AA batteries last several rounds and can be replaced in mid-round without losing your scoring data. You also get a warning when the batteries are low.
