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: Thanks to the backlight feature it is much easier to read than the Golf Buddy I had been using. The negatives are that it does not always switch to the next hole automatically and you cannot tell how much battery is left unless you plug it in.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: It was too hard for me to use this because some of the data is very small and I'm older than many. The screen was nice and bright and the device felt good in the hand. But maybe this best suits young people who can see the screen better than I could.
Works well but experience has found it to be not a tough as it needs to be.

Summary: Brought as a replacement and spares for the original supplied with my 10 year old GPS60. There are two parts to the current version, for the 60 series the part with the button that attaches to the more recent Oregon etc model is not required.
Manual is rubbish but a little experimentation shows it is actually quite easy to use

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.
