What we say...
This performed well for each of the four testers over the two days, with Richard in particular impressed by the screen; he felt it was easy to see regardless of the sunlight or conditions. He also felt the drawings of the holes were highly accurate too. Steve loved the detail offered by the G500, and also that it fitted easily into a standard-sized pocket.
But what let it down was the styling – Richard felt it resembled an old mobile phone in terms of looks, and Steve also felt it was difficult to use, commenting that it was a better option to use a tee peg rather than your fingers. For less than £200 though, this will do pretty much everything you could want.
