As advertised, but not much more

Kody Miles, Amazon

  • Summary: First of all let me say that I had a great experience buying the product and then subsequently returning it. The product itself however, leaves a lot to be desired. It is very basic and does not come close to my $30 iPhone app for ease of use and clarity of the screen. I used it twice, then returned it (thank goodness for that "60 day" policy). Pros: small, rugged and comfortable to carry/wear, accuracy was also very good. Cons: not great clarity on the screen, esp.

After 6-8 rounds; still a love/hate relationship

Fairwaymetal, Bestbuy

  • Summary: As indicated above when it is working the graphics are easy to see and reasonably accurate; at least for my game.
  • Pros: Love the graphics and the interim distance notations; easy to read even in the sunlight; picks up courses quickly
  • Cons: The unit freezes in mid round; either with a locked distance or by switching to a different mode. Cannot switch back.

Closer to 3 1/2 stars

  • 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.

Is OK

BigJim6760, Amazon

  • Summary: Was wanting to replace my Sky Caddie, did a lot of research and decided to try something new. I'm still adjusting to the differences between the two but find the Approach much harder to read and get the information that seemed readily available from my Sky Caddie. Will continue to work with the Approach but not sure that I will stay with it.

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.

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.
