22 September 2014
Summary: I have had the G5 for over two years and absolutely love it. The screen is fine, it is water resistant for those rainy days, you can move the flag to get better yardage and the list goes on and on. I am writing this to address two items that keep showing up in the reviews. The first thing is, No Battery meter. That is not true, just lock the screen and it shows up. The second thing, is eats batteries. That is also not true.
Summary: I have used a Sky Caddie 2.5 for 4 years and had been thinking about a Garmin for several months (no yearly fees!) After "test driving" a friend's Garmin Approach 5 I was hooked. I chose the G3 after much debate and ... I LOVE it! I play 5-7 rounds a week from May to Sept in MO and even in the bright sun the screen is clear and easy to see.
Summary: This garmin is great on the course. It gives me distances to the waters/hazards and to the front/middle/and back of the green! It is a great product. It arrived in great condition and on time.
Summary: The Garmin Approach 5 golf GPS is a great devices and has all the tricks available a true golfer would want. It comes up very quickly when turned on and locates the course you desire. I have almost when three rounds on one charge except for the last 3 holes. Screen is very easy to see and all the features are easy to access and utilize. I made the right choice and would highly recommend this device to any golfer.
