Summary: I like the product very much, but it seems to have many features that I don't use nor need. Sometimes these features pop up and I have to play around to get back to the basic GPS positioning system that I want.
Summary: Recently bought the Approach after having a Sky Caddy for years. Love it for quick yardage info. Now I do not have do download courses, pay a yearly fee or worry that a course is not on my list. How simple is that? You drive up to the course, hit play and then the course. It is there!
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.
Summary: I have now used the Garmin G6 about a dozen times and I think the best way to rate the Garmin G6 is to compare it to the Sky Caddie SGX GPS which I also own and which I used for about two years prior to buying the Garmin. Each GPS costs about the same and they contain pretty much the same features.
Summary: Unlike the SkyCaddy this unit requires NO annual fee and is easy to use and small enough to fit on my belt. Easy to measure "actual ball distance" and record to a specific club. Battery is better than SkyCaddy.
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.
