What we say...


The Garmin G6 Approach Golf GPS has a high-sensitivity GPS receiver to measure individual shot distances and show the exact distance to fairways, hazards and greens. It can do this on no less than 27,000 preloaded golf courses. It’s a tough, waterproof device with a 1.4" x 2.2" colour touchscreen that will give the serious golfer a distinct advantage with stroke play, stableford, skins and match play scoring formats. Approach is compliant with R&A rules. Permitted when Local Rule is in effect (see R&A Decision 14-3/0.5)

The G6 Approach helps you zero in on the pin with Green View. Just tap the flag on the map to zoom in on the green — then you can drag the flag to position it where you see it giving you more accurate yardage. An enhanced stat tracker keeps track of fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts per round. Not only can you check your stats during the round, but you also can download and print them from your home PC. A new on-unit feature allows you to review your round, showing you the number of putts per hole, clubs used, distances hit, fairways hit and missed to the left or right, greens in regulation, time to play and distance travelled.
