garmin golf gps,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin Approach G3 Golf GPS Unit (Electronics)
Courses are preloaded. All the courses I need (and many more) are present. The selection of a course is easy. It is solidly built and has a strong clip to hang on a golf bag if you need it (I use a GPS bracket). I have dropped it several times without harm.
Though the screen is rather small I can read it - on a sunny day I usually face it into the sun to get the clearest detail. Information about fairways (trees, bunkers, rivers etc) and greens (size, shape, bunkers etc) is always displayed. More detail - and the ability to change pin positions, for example - is available at the touch of the screen. There are many other features that I don't use.
I change two rechargeable AA batteries for each round. It would more expensive to use expendable batteries (which may last for three rounds).
After many months of regular use it has proved reliable.
