Garmin Approach G8 Golf Course GPS Review

Garmin Approach G8 Golf Course GPS Review

Usually when I buy any handheld, full screen GPS my expectation is that it will perform as fast and efficiently as my Smartphone. In most cases, I end up getting disappointed because most of the devices that I have bought never live up to my expectation (which, by the way, have been many since I started playing golf). However, when I picked up the Garmin Approach G8 I knew I had myself a special device just by looking at it.

What impressed me most with this device is the fact that it is a “Plug N Play” by just turning it on with a power button on the side the device was ready for use. It also automatically finds and recognizes the course that you are playing on in a matter of seconds. In fact, it only took me less than 30 seconds to do everything from start to finish. Efficiency and accuracy were the other two things that impressed me, and I can tell you for sure that my golfing experience is way much better since I started using Approach G8.

Conclusion

With a three-inch color display and more that 38,000 preinstalled golf courses from around the world, the Garmin Approach G8 makes the cut as one of the best golf GPS in the market. Having tried it and still using it, I would highly recommend it to any golfer whether they are new in the sport or pros. Although the price is one the higher end of the scale, it is worth every coin spent on it.
