Research: Of the various distance devices used by the ladies with lower indexes who I golf with, the 76-year-old lady with a Garmin Approach G6 was most satisfied: her children set it up for her. Reviews indicated the latest version G8 (has a larger screen than the G6: shows the same distances as the G6) is superior to the G6 and G7: no nearby stores carried the G8 or the G7 to demo.
Purchase: Sunday, May 11, 2014 I ordered a Garmin Approach G8 Golf GPS on Amazon, sold by The PlayBetter Store, ($405.62 less $25 mail-in rebate to Garmin: the PlayBetter Store emailed the form to me) with a 60-day buy & try return policy. The G8 was delivered on Tuesday, May 13.
Getting started: I read the basics on 3-pages of the included “Quick Start Manual”. I charged the G8 with the included USB cable and AC charger in a wall outlet. I put the G8 in a golf sock to keep clean in dirty cart cup holders.
First game of golf: At the #1 tee, by myself in a cart, “Quick Start Manual” in hand, I turned on the G8 (no diagram to find the “on button” hidden on the white strip on the side). I pressed “Setup” on the screen: pressed “yards”, “English”, and “show PlaysLike Distance”. Pressed “Play” and the course appeared at the top of the list: pressed the course and the #1 hole view appeared. The G8 showed 133-yards to the green center for my blind up-hill 3rd shot on the par-5 #1 hole. A pro-shop worker near the green shouted when he saw my ball go in the cup for an eagle.
Later set-up: Per the “Quick Start Manual” I easily connected my G8 to my home wireless network (Wi-Fi) for free software and course update downloads. I had difficulties registering my G8 on my MacBook Pro at [...] expess per the “Quick Start Manual”. There was no diagram to locate the serial number (under the weather cap) for the rebate form. After 2 18-hole rounds I charge the G8 with the included USB cable and AC charger in a wall outlet (runs 15-hours on a full battery charge). Press on “start” for the time, % battery charge, and to get to “Setup”. For safety, I do not leave my G8 in the cart while I go elsewhere and not in a hot car.
Resolved issues: Press “x” to end a round. Press “Setup” then “lock” to prevent inadvertent screen touches (like when the G8 is in my pocket.) Press “>” to start on a hole other than #1. Press “<” to go back a hole when too close to the next hole. Press “Setup” then turn off “PlaysLike Distance” when in a tournament.
To date, for 11 rounds on 5 courses, my Garmin Approach G8 Golf GPS is helpful for distance to greens and to view the layout of unfamiliar courses.
Note: I mount it to the golf cart. Initially I tried it in my pocket, but even with the "screen lock" enabled (which seems to do nothing?) I was consistently touching the screen and messing up what hole I was on or something else.
I would recommend this product, if you are looking for a GPS that so far does what it states it will do and at a reasonable price compared to other products out there.
