I have had better units.

Mike McCreight, Amazon

  • 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.

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.

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.

Is OK

James H., Amazon
12 June 2013
  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

you may not need one

steve jones, Amazon
10 December 2012
  • Summary: I ordered this because I wanted to clip the GPS to my golf bag. The spec. for the G3 GPS failed to mention that it actually comes with a "carabiner" type clip, which will fasten it to your belt, bag or pretty much anything.

Check the courses loaded

kwilly, Amazon

  • 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.
