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. We will have too use more in the next couple of month to determine if I keep it or sell it.
Easy to use and helpful in determining distance to greens.

Summary: Screen size is a little small. Should come with bag clip. Easy to use in determining distance to greens. Definitely takes away guessing game on distance and which club to use based on your game.
Summary: This is a very good GPS. I appreciate having courses preloaded and the long battery life. The touch screen works well. My only complaint is the screen is a little tough to see in sunny conditions and sometimes the distances have been significantly off. Recommend using common sense checks on distances at a course the first time you use it.
Summary: I picked up one of these Garmin Approach G6 golf GPS devices after trying a number of smart phone apps with various amount of success, but mainly failures. I figured you get what you pay for, so I plunked down the $$$ for a GPS device that is dedicated to golf. After a couple of rounds, it has a lot of good and some bad. My overall opinion is that it is a nice device but might not be worth the near $300 they are asking.
Summary: After using a Skycaddie I got used to having a unit that made sure I put a hole score in before advancing to the next hole. Minor issue but a personal preference. You'll see the error when looking at the round details. Other than that the size of the G6 and immediate yardage display are a great advantage over the Skycaddie.
Summary: Although I'm familiar with mobile GPS's, this golf GPS has a learning curve. Not to say that it will be difficult, just different. The unit is very solid, some have complained that the screen image is little cartoonish, that's not a problem with me as my golfing skills are also a little cartoonish. Gives great lay outs for many many courses, yardage is fairly accurate, ease of use with touch screen is a nice feature.
