Easy to use and helpful in determining distance to greens.

johnd0808, Ebay

  • 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.

Very nice GPS

Kid Icarus, Amazon
14 February 2014
  • 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.

Good Value

Drive4show, intheholegolf.com
8 February 2014
  • Summary: This is about as easy to use as it gets. Picks up satellites quickly and intuitive to use. Screen is pretty easy to read. Biggest negative is that it will give distances to hazards/traps but not the distance to carry them. To get that you have to manually manipulate the device. For the money it is worth what you get. Huge improvement, especially the touch screen and moving the pin placement, over the G5 which I bought last year and returned.

Can't wait to use it!

Sharon Bausch, Amazon
10 January 2014
  • Summary: Bought this as a Christmas gift for myself. Unfortunately, Illinois weather doesn't allow much winter golf. So, haven't really used it yet. It is a very nice size, with good graphics. Hopefully, it will work out nicely when golf season begins.

Garmin Approach G6 Hand Held GPS

Craig in Florida, Amazon
25 October 2013
  • 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. However, the SGX only holds up to 50 courses while the Garmin comes with approximately 25,000 courses already loaded.

Not perfect but very good...NO annual fee

TD Golfer "TD Golfer", Amazon
13 October 2013
  • 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. An improvement would be to provide a real picture of hole being played but not really necessary. Also, easy to view green and changed flag location.

Very Good - Not Great - Could Be Even Better

Barry Stanky, Amazon
16 September 2013
  • 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.
