Closer to 3 1/2 stars

Coast2Coast, Amazon
20 July 2013
  • Summary: Good golf GPS; plenty of courses and no extra annual fee. Small enough to keep in your pocket. Good touch screen that responds to gloved hands. Visually satisfying in all varying light conditions. Intuitive functions and menus for the most part. Waterproof. Limitations/Cons: 1) I may have a defective belt clip (though no apparent manufacturing defect seen), but the GPS have fallen out about once every 3-5 rounds of golf. The soft "click" is no longer reassuring.

Not a fair assessment yet

Bob, Amazon
21 April 2013
  • Summary: I've been asked to rate this product after using it for only one round of golf, so I'm not sure that it is an accurate assessment at this time. I used a SkyCaddie for 5 years, and I got used to very accurate course distance measurements. When I damaged the SkyCaddie, I was told by SkyGolf that they did not repair units.

Manual is rubbish but a little experimentation shows it is actually quite easy to use

Jim, Amazon

  • Summary: Took ages to find a satellite signal when first turned on but eventually did. Manual is rubbish but a little experimentation shows it is actually quite easy to use. Very useful data on the device and good shot tracking and distance info. Main problem is the connection to Garmin Connect - to actually view your stats - is a nightmare. Does not work with Safari or Chrome Browsers. Interface is as user-friendly as iTunes, i.e. not at all.

Not perfect. Have had to move it to the next ...

Gordon Lewis, Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: Not perfect. Have had to move it to the next hole when it stuck on the 15th hole. Doesn't always move ahead to the current yardage; need to pinpoint on the green to get the shot distance and then not confident that the distance will be as accurate as one would like. SO, not totally trustworthy and spending some time checking the yardage with the course markers.

Check the courses loaded

kwilly, Amazon
30 March 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this item and returned it(although have not received credit yet). I purchased it as a gift and the 2 courses (which are executive courses in Canada) which we play all the time are not mapped. I asked when they would be and could not be given an affirmative date. My old gpd (logic) I had a response within a week that course was loaded or why it couldn't be.

Garmin Approach G6

Waldmuc, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: Nur drei Punkte für das Garmin Approach G6 aus zwei Gründen: Zum einen sind manche Plätze nicht uptodate (z.B. Thailing). Der Hauptminuspunkt ist aber der sehr, sehr schwache GPS Empfänger. Erst das dritte Gerät war überhaupt in der Lage ein GPS Signal zu empfangen, zwei Geräte musste ich zurück schicken. Auch wenn der Himmel bedeckt ist, gibt es Empfangs-Schwierigkeiten.

Garmin G6

Manfred Kriemann, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: Habe das G6 zum ersten Mal während eines Golfurlaubs in der Türkei getestet. Es hat jedesmal bis zum 4 - 9. Loch gebraucht um sich auf den Platz einzuloggen. Den Carya kannte es garnicht. Null Anzeige. Wenn es sich den eingependelt hatte war es schon eine gute Hilfe. Durch das markieren der Bunker, Wasserhindernisse, Fahne wird das Spiel wenn man es den umsetzen kann erleichtert.
