Summary: This is an upgrade fro the G3 to the G6 with more course selections. Found the G3 didn't have some courses I played over the last 3 years. The lighting quality of the G6 is very bad in normal conditions and not as good as the G3,very disappointed.
Summary: Had a skycaddie SG5 but don't like the annual fee so got the garmin. Nice product. While I haven't used it yet due to cold weather I have fired it up and found my favorite golf courses. This is a great product from what I can see so far.
Summary: The biggest problem is the GPS gets lost. Especially if you drive over to another fairway and then return. You're likely to get some crazy measurements. It also has a problem with 27 hole lay outs. When you complete a nine, it thinks your done. You have to turn it off and reset it.
Summary: I bought this product because my Callaway microPro no longer supported course updates and my home course had just gone through a major redesign. After considerable research, I determined that the G6 seemed to be the best buy. In general, I haven't been disappointed.
Excellent device, excellent value, perfect for the job.

Summary: Although this was a "refurbished" device and therefore a little cheaper than a new device there was no way of telling that this was so. I play golf 3 or 4 times a week and the device is regularly used. It is perfect for the job and very easy to use. One of my wisest purchases. Excellent.

Summary: I had be using a uPro+ and thought it did a good job. The unit I had started to give me problems on the course such as forgetting what course I was playing and Callaway is ending support & updates at the end of 2014, After considerable research, decided to go with the Garmin G6.
Summary: Great Golf GPS. I had a Callaway uPro that I dropped and broke. Callaway has gotten out of the golf GPS business so I had to find something else. I thought about the wrist watch type of GPS but I don't like wearing a watch when I golf.
Garmin Approach G8 Golf GPS is helpful for distance to greens and to view the layout of unfamiliar courses

Summary: Background: I am 67; recently retired; getting back to golf after 30 years; little experience with tech products – no iPhone or iPad; no available knowledgeable help; seeking the “silver bullet” to lower my golf score (22 index).
Summary: Your buddies won't want to wait while you pull this out of your pocket and screw around with it. I replaced this with a Garmin S-2 watch model which is cheaper and easier to use. It doesn't have all the features that this one does, but what do you really need except distance to the center, back and...
