Great Piece of Technology
By [RV]erified User #159578 BeagleDawg from North Carolina on 04/29/2013
Pros: Very accurate
Cons: Some time a little sluggish
Recommended: Yes
This is a great GPS. I find it very easy to use and the distance is quick. When you walk up to your ball look down and you have the distance. No standing an trying to focus a hand held range finder. Some complain that it is hard to see the screen in sunlight, but I have never had a problem and have used the G5 for over a year. I would recommend to anyone interested in a GPS. What is really helpful when playing a course you are not familar with you get distances to water hazards and other unseen hazards. This has helped me with club selection on numerous occassions.

Garmin G5 GPS
By Ted W from Fort Wayne, IN on 06/05/2011
Pros: Nice Features, tough unit
Cons: Slow to settle to a distance
Recommended: Yes
I bought this to replace my failed Callaway UPro. The touch screen is nice and works well. The unit is very sturdy and can be dropped. It has all my local courses in Indiana. However, sometimes the unit is slow to settle to a distance. The yardage keeps "hunting" and changing. Eventually it gets there, but sometimes it is too slow. I still recommend the unit.

Garmin Approach G5 Golf GPS
By Tim Campbell from Kingsburg, CA US on 06/22/2010
I have owned pretty much every golf gps unit on the market and the Garmin Approach G5 is hands down the best unit out there. I love how durable it is. If you drop it on the fairway, you don't have to worry about it breaking due the craftsmanship put into it. I highly recommend the Garmin.

Garmin Approach G5 Golf GPS Review
By Tim Moynihan from Lusby, MD US on 10/28/2009
I bought this GPS because I thought my SonoCaddie GPS was lost. I ended up finding it (after I purchased the G5), and to make a long story short, my boy has the (old)SonoCaddie and I have the G5 :) Right off the bat I knew this was a well built unit, just from the heft/feel of it. The first time I used it was in the first tournament I ever played in that wasn't a captain's choice. Although there isn't any way to "edit" distances, I found the pre-loaded courses to be very accurate. The ability to calculate your second shot on Par 5's is awesome and zooming in on the green and being able to adjust the flag is great as well. Another cool thing is being able to look up courses and preview each hole as well as finding local courses while on travel. I'm not sure how long the batteries last (I'm using rechargeable) because I played about 4 rounds with it and haven't played again, but I still have a charge. It probably would be nice if it had a battery indicator to let you know how close it is to dying, but I just have a spare set of akaline batteries on hand just in case. So to sum it all up, if your looking for a great golf GPS and you need something on your Xmas list (so you don't get another tie) this is the unit for you.
