Garmin Approach G5 Customer Feedback
“I absolutely loved what the Garmin GPS did to my golfing day out with my son. I just did not feel the need for looking for markers, and neither did I have to waste time walking off to get an estimate for my shots. Simple operation, especially the drag and drop flag feature, allowed me to estimate my targets rather easily.”
“I had to spend some time when the Garmin Approach G5 arrived to download all the latest courses, as the one I purchased just did not have the latest list. But once I downloaded it and sped off to a nearby golf course, I didn’t have any trouble using this device. The Garmin Approach G5 is just an easy-to-use GPS.”
“I can’t help but compare the Garmin Approach G5 to other rangefinders in this niche (Though, this comparison is not entirely right). Overall, I found the Garmin device easy to use especially when I had to clear a hazard or get onto the green. Probably, it is to find out the distance to the pin, where Garmin Approach G5 falls a bit short. Otherwise, it rocks.”
