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.

Garmin has two different popular smartphones on the market right now – one with AT & T and one with T-Mobile. According to CNet, the T-Mobile Garminfone is a huge improvement over the AT & T Nuvifone G60, proving to be a capable smartphone just as much as it is a reliable navigator.

    The Garmin GPS fone is built on the Android™ platform. It is a full-featured smartphone combined with proven Garmin GPS satellite navigation. Whether you’re making a call, sending a message or simply surfing the web, Garminfone puts everything you need right at your fingertips. You’ll get access to the Android Market, similar to the the Apple iPhone app store, giving you thousands of apps to choose from. Android Market is where you’ll find apps to truly customize your smart-phone.

Garminfone also supports junction view with lane assist¹ in many metro areas — so you can know the right lane to be in at the right time. In addition, Garminfone comes preloaded with millions of points of interest so you can look up restaurants, fuel stations, hotels, ATMs and more, get phone numbers and addresses, and navigate right to your chosen location.
