The shapely, lightweight and durable Approach G8 has a 3-inch multi-touch colour display and is one of our most versatile handheld devices. Firstly, the exact distances for more than 30,000 international golf courses with free, life-long map updates via WLAN should be mentioned. Then go on with PlaysLike distances, intelligent notifications, PinPointer help for shots without a direct view of the green, a 15-hour battery, and the online golf community at Garmin Connect for sharing and comparing data.
The Approach G8 is small but fine and offers a variety of new functions so that you can master every golf course with confidence. PlaysLike distances show golfers the distance to their destination with compensation for up or downhill gradients. The smartphone notification function ensures that you receive emails, SMS messages and alarms directly on the handset - even in the middle of the fairway. Messages are transmitted via wireless signal between the G8 and your iPhone 4s or a newer version. If you want to read them, all the text is displayed on the device.
Garmin Connect has an online golf community. So play one round first, then share and compare your data. Download your round and compare it to your last round. You can also track the improvements in your handicap for each course you play. The Garmin Connect golf community can even put together your dream round. The best score for each hole is combined to give you the ideal 18 for the course.…more
