Brian, Oxford Occasional user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
It is very easy to use
Bad points:
The batteries! They have to be removed after every two rounds and recharged. I do not expect the release clips or the battery connections to last long if I have to keep removing batteries to recharge them. The product should allow for direct recharge - in which case I am sure it would be very good. I will not buy one without a direct recharging facility in future.

Satellite Navigation Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Give your game a boost of confidence with Approach G3, a rugged, waterproof, touchscreen golf device packed with thousands of preloaded golf course maps. Approach uses a high-sensitivity GPS receiver to measure individual shot distances and show the exact yardage to fairways, hazards and greens.

Fits Perfectly in Your Pocket

A bit smaller and lighter than the Approach G5, Approach G3 is ideal if you prefer to walk the course. Still as rough and rugged as its big brother, Approach G3 lightens your load no matter how you get around the course.

Eliminate the Guesswork

Approach displays and updates your exact position on stunningly detailed, preloaded course maps throughout the United States and Canada. 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 are no subscriptions or setup fees, and Approach is compliant with USGA rules.

Trees Ahead

Tired of trees blocking your view? We’ve included Tree Line Coverage for most courses (with more to come) to help you see where trees line your fairways, further allowing you to adjust your shot.

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.

Add More Courses

We’re continuing to add more courses periodically to our map data, as well as updating and improving our course maps for Approach G3.
