The Garmin GPS Approach G5 is an excellent handheld GPS device for someone who wants to improve their golf game. The Garmin GPS system does basically everything but hit the ball. Don’t just take my word for it, the Garmin Approach G5 has excellent reviews on Amazon.com (94 reviews with a 4 star average). The best GPS unit comes with a very valuable 10,000-plus course database. It also includes lifetime free online course additions and updates. There’s no subscription or setup fees, and Approach is compliant with USGA rules.
The high-end, color touchscreen is very user-friendly and detailed. It only has one real button used to turn it on or off (also used to lock/unlock the screen) and everything else is controlled via the touch screen.
Garmin’s Approach G5 is waterproof and uses a high-sensitivity GPS receiver to measure individual shot distances and show the exact yardage to fairways, hazards, and greens. It pinpoints your exact location as you move, and will automatically your position – so you’ll always know your exact yardage. This precise information will help any golfer make better decisions.
