Garmin Approach G8 GPS Technology

This fantastic application shows you the direction of the green, even if you cannot see it! Built in Club Suggestions (which remembers how far you hit each club), the fantastic PlaysLike Distance functionality (which takes into account uphill or downhill shots) and the PinPointer functionality allow you to be confident that the club in your hands will be the correct one for the shot. Switch the Garmin G8 to Big Numbers Mode for an easier "at a glance" viewing.


Also built into this device is a Handicap Scoring options for Stableford, Skins and Matchplay (as well as adjustable handicaps) and the G8 also hosts a digital scorecard for up to 4 players – calculating everyone’s scores has never been so easy! At the end of a round, you can sit down in the clubhouse, link Garmin G8 to the clubhouse wifi for automatic course updates and share and compare stats with your fellow golfers.

Garmin Connect Compatible

The Garmin Approach G8 is compatible with Garmin Connect to give you the ability to review rounds and see performance statistics before and after play, as well as the ability to share scores with your fellow golfers. Garmin Connect shows hole by hole details for your favourite courses so you can see where to improve your game and view your Dream Score on each course. Dream Score is what you would score if you hit your best score from each individual hole all in one round. The Scorecard feature allows you to view and share your scorecards and keep track who you’ve played with. You can also see the number of fairways hit, greens in regulation and number of putts for that round. Garmin Connect also keeps track of your stats and track of your progress over time. Track your longest shots, view your average score by par, overall fairways hit percentage, overall greens in regulation percentage and average putts. Garmin Connect will take your golf to the next level.

Garmin is pleased to announce that as of 1st January 2016, the full range of Garmin Approach distance measuring devices are permitted for use in golfing competition. This is subject to local rule and usage code of practice set out by the recent announcement of changes to the R&A rule book.

the Garmin is easy to use, I like the no subscription model they use as to the skycaddie yearly subscriptions. it is easy to navigate the menus and does not try and be to cleaver, all I want is a device that tells me how far it is to the target and to keep my score. the Garmin does this really well
it is not as accurate as the skycaddie. I also own a skycaddie SGS moving to the Garmin as the Skycaddie subscription is far to high, I would rather have a little less accuracy than pay through the nose for subscription.

Does what it says it does. But some features are not easy to use e.g. scoring
The trolley mount is not good the unit can easily get knocked half a turn and it falls off.
This item needs a redesign

I mounted the cradle to an existing clamp I had it is much better.
