Golf GPS System Reviews 2010

Garmin Approach G5 golf GPS

* Rugged, waterproof golf GPS unit with 3-inch sunlight-readable touchscreen display
* U.S. golf course maps preloaded, including fairways, hazards, and greens
* No annual fee; new maps available for download from Garmin.com
* Measure shot distance with highly sensitive readings to eliminate guesswork from your game
* Digital scorecard for up to 4 players; save and review scores on your computer at home

The G5’s features have easy-to-follow menus on the touchscreen. The best part is Garmin preloads a database of 14,000+ courses for free, and adds courses and updates for free via its website. The database is fairly extensive and should have most of your local courses. A nice feature is that it can show distances to and from anywhere on the course just by touching and dragging. Touch your target for a distance, or touch and move the flag for precision distance. The G5 also has a good score-keeping utility.

The Garmin GPS Approach G5 for golf retails for $399-440 but I found it for sale online for $300 at Amazon.com.
