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. 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: What I Like: Small, light, and a nice "rugged" feel. It gets thrown around in the cart cup-holders so rugged is good. Battery life is good (I use rechargeable) and being able to hot-swap batteries is great. I get 2+ rounds easily. Accuracy appears to be good.
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.
Summary: G3. I got it yesterday, Saturday, and my first impression when I opended the box and looked at it, was it was too fat, bulky, and not that high resolution, which made me a little bit think about a return.
Summary: The Garmin G3 seems to work well and is fairly easy to use. I would rate its accuracy at around 90%. It almost always agrees with the yardage markers on the course within a few yards, but occasionally it is far off (> 25 yds).
