Garmin Approach G3 Golf GPS - A Proficient, Economical Handheld

 

High performance at a reasonable price., Free 18,000+ golf course database., Rugged and waterproof construction.

Screen on the small side, but still does the job., Doesn't track stats such as number of putts, fairways hit.

If you compare the Garmin G3 golf GPS feature-for-feature with its big brother, the G5 (which costs about $100 more), you'll find just a few differences. The G3 has a 2.6-inch (diagonal) touchscreen, compared with a 3-inch display on the G5. The G3 is...

Review: Garmin Approach G3

 

Garmin has a reputation for solid, reliable gear because it's never shy of spending a few bucks on R&D, which has both its up and downs– the up side being, you get a great product, the down, it comes at a price.

Rugged, accurate, easy-to-use, good information

Pricey

Overall the Garmin Approach 3 will provide a subtle advantage and find a nice little niche for golfers who take what can be a very frustrating pastime a little bit more seriously than most.

Many negative reviews were concerned with short battery life. I am using Ray O Vac Platinum rechargeable batteries and I get two full rounds. That should work for anyone.This is a great GPS that shows a bright map of the hole with accurate distances....

With the Garmin Approach3, you can change the distance to the flag by dragging the pin to the proper location. All of the main features of the hole are indicated with distance from your location. Finally, you can select your own lay up point, and the...

The display could be a little brighter, but is corrected by just turning the screen from side to side

I just started using it, and the rechargable batteries NiMH 2500 lasted 18 with plenty to spare. I always take more, just in case. I like it. If it makes you feel good, thats all that counts. I recomend it. Enjoy!

Small enought to carry in pocket without it being uncomftable, so were ever you go, you know. Rechargables last the entire course

So far, I'am good. Nothings ever a 10, there is always improvements. But this is close

Your service was excellent, as was the price!

Love the layout, ease of use and accuracy

A little bulky. Belt attachment is not friendly and the device itself sometimes becomes unattached. I have found it's easier to just keep it in my pocket, even if it does stick out a little

Consumer review by:

Everthing I expected

 

The G3 is easy to use and will help with club selection even when playing a familiar course.

Works Good

 

Lots of coarses

The unit worked just fine and I use Nihid batterys that I change after a days use. Really helps for the iron shots

Had to down load the maps to up date my coarse which I thought was already in, the screen is a little light but works fine

Consumer review by:

Outstanding

 

This should be plenty for the average golfer. The G5 does not provide anything but a slightly larger screen for more money.

Great device and dead on accurate

Could be cheaper
