Garmin Approach G5 Handheld GPS Golfing Companion
Eliminate the Guesswork
Approach displays and updates your exact position on stunningly detailed, preloaded course maps throughout the United States. Approach’s highly sensitive GPS receiver pinpoints your position and removes guesswork from your game. And as you move, Approach automatically updates your position, so you’ll always know your yardage. There's no subscriptions or setup fees, and Approach is compliant with USGA rules.
Touch Your Target
Need to measure distances for your next shot? Touch any point on the sunlight-readable display, and Approach shows the precise distance to that exact spot—fairway, hazard, landing area, or the front, middle and back of the green.
Get on the Green
Approach helps you zero in on the pin with Approach's 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.
Keep Score Digitally
Approach doubles as a digital scorecard for your foursome. After the game, you can save and review the scores on your computer at home.
