5.0 out of 5 stars Colourful and Accurate, 5 Jan 2011
This review is from: Garmin Approach G3 Golf GPS Unit (Electronics)
Have just been given one of these for Christmas.I had a basic golf GPS previously but the extra features of this more than justify the extra cost.Firstly,I no longer have to pay to download courses and there is no annual fee.The European data base is amazing .The Garmin even has the details of a local 9 hole par 3 course in it.I have only used it at my own course at the moment but am impressed by the level of detail.One small bunker ,on a short par 3, is missing but ,otherwise ,all the major course features are shown.I love the ability to zoom in ,on the full colour screen ,to measure the exact distance to a feature or to measure a "lay up " shot.I can also move the pin position on the green but,too be honest ,my game isn't accurate enough to bother.The ability to preview holes on any golf course is another bonus.I have played on or two featureless courses where it was difficult to decide exactly where the green was even though my other GPS told me how far away it was.With the Garmin you get a bird's eye view of every hole.No hazard should ever be a "hidden one" again!It is a pity the unit is not rechargeable and uses two AA batteries.The purchase of a rechargeable batteries is pretty essential.Four batteries and a charger cost me an extra 20 .Despite this, I am very pleased with the Gramin and look forward to using it in future.

Thanks for the review especially the comment about it not being rechargeable as that important detail seems to be missing from the product description. Now I wont waste 130.

AA in my view good as can be found anywhere. However most of them go flat when not used. However some such as Eneloops stay 90% charged after 12m if not used ... well worth buying !!!
