I was a click away from ordering a different golf GPS when I read a review about the Garmin G6. After going to the Garmin website and reading more about it, I ordered it. I am very happy with it so far. It is very easy to use and comes ready right out of the box. There is no yearly fee as it is pre-loaded with over 20,000 courses. You can go right on the garmin website and check to see if the courses you play are there before making your decision to buy it. Every course I could think of that I play or might play were there. It also includes free life-time updates.
The colored screen is great and I have had no problems with glare. I have used it now at 4 different courses and it appears to be very accurate and has really helped me use the right club! It allows you to keep score for up to 4 people (I have not done that yet) and you can measure the distance you are hitting each club and it will keep track of your average distance per club. I used it for 2 rounds and when I checked the battery life it was still 55% full.
I have friends who own the type that require a yearly membership and they wish they had gone with this one too! If you can afford to spend a little more (but save the money on the yearly membership) I would highly recommend this one!
Pros:*No yearly fee
*Easy to use
Cons:*Nothing so far. I wish it would have come with a protective case but I picked one up at Target that fits it fine.
