Golfing GPS With 25,000 Courses Preloaded
- Comes in at just under $350
- Free updates
- Offers exact yardage to hole
Garmin’s Approach G6 GPS device comes preloaded with over 25,000 courses from across the globe and features an internal rechargeable battery lasting up to 15 hours.
Designed with a slim form factor and weighing less than 100g, the Approach G6 fits easily into a shirt pocket and has a colour touchscreen and sunlight readable display.
Serious golfers can play with confidence at some of the most famous golf meccas around the world. Whether they’re headed to Scotland to play a round on one of the sport’s oldest courses, or to the United States to tee off at Pebble Beach, the Approach G6 will give you the right information to make your game better. Garmin also offers free updates throughout the year, adding new maps to ensure ongoing accuracy.
Just as courses change, so do the pin placements. With the touch of the screen, the flag can be adjusted for the current day’s pin placement. The large yardage number gives golfers the distance to the pin while the other two numbers give them distance to the front and back.
Fitting in the palm of your hand, the Approach G6 offers a 2.6-inch sunlight readable display which means that, even in changing light conditions throughout the golfing day, you’ll always know where and how far from the hole you are.
Precision is important in your golfing game and the Approach G6 helps you nail the shot every single time with layup arcs that are drawn on the map, giving you at-a-glance references to 100, 150, 200 and (when applicable) 250 metres for layup decisions. Golfers can touch the spot on the layout map that they want to measure, judge layups or zero in on hazards or obstacles that may get in the way of a perfect shot.
The new model offers expanded scoring, including Stroke Play, Stableford, Skins and Match Play, with adjustable handicaps. Keep an eye on the number of fairways you’ve hit, greens in regulation and putts per round or measure the exact yardage and even select your club with the aid of the Approach G6.
