Approach® G30

Small but Powerful Handheld Golf GPS

  • Sleek, compact handheld golf GPS with 2.3-inch color touchscreen display
  • High-sensitivity GPS acquires satellites quickly to show distance to greens, hazards and doglegs
  • Preloaded with more than 41,000 courses worldwide
  • Full-color course mapping with Touch Targeting feature
  • Green View allows you to place the pin in the correct location for the day, which improves distance accuracy

To beat the course, you must know the course. Victory is at hand with Approach G30. It offers a 2.3-inch color touchscreen display that provides full-color mapping, as well as Touch Targeting, which lets you touch any point on the sunlight-readable display and show the precise distance to that spot. And with a high-sensitivity GPS, you’ll see distance to greens, hazards and doglegs — even under tree cover.

Get More Courses

Approach G30 comes with more than 41,000 preloaded courses worldwide, so you’re ready to play. You’ll see full-color maps of the entire course with CourseView, and with just a tap on the flag, you can zoom in on the green. Green View gives you its true orientation from wherever you are on the course — even if you’re behind it — and it allows you to manually place the pin in the correct location for the day, giving you more accurate yardage. Plus, with Big Numbers Mode, Approach G30 shows yardage references to the front, middle and back of green in a large font, without distractions.


Keep It Handy

The Approach G30 GPS golf device is compact so you can easily slip it into and out of your pocket, or take advantage of versatile mounting options to stash it nearly anywhere — including your belt, pull cart or golf bag — and easily slide it in and out with 1 hand.

Improve Your Game

Pair with the TruSwing™ golf swing analyzer, and you can train your swing with game-changing metrics, including swing speed and club path angles. By helping you understand what your swing is doing and how it impacts ball flight, you can improve your consistency on each stroke.


Record Your Round

Digital scorecard makes it easy to keep scores for up to 4 players, and it automatically uploads to Garmin Connect™ when synced. And with stat tracking, you can keep track of putts, greens in regulation and fairways hit. Plus, it features an odometer and round timer for even more data on your game.


Keep Playing

With Approach G30, you’re always in touch. It displays smart notifications so you can get alerts from your phone for incoming calls, texts and emails. And it offers up to 15 hours of battery life on each charge for more time on the links.

Exactly what my dad needed

Simple, accurate and gives yardages right on the screen to hazards.
Ease of use, fits nicely into the bag, garmin so you know it?s quality A little smaller screen than I had hoped

It Works

Got a great price for the unit, Rock Bottom shipped it quickly. Was in the original box with all the correct paper work. Although refurbished came out of the box looking brand new. Make sure you register your device using Garmin's website. It will also upload new firmware and courses and then turn it on and let the new info load into the device before taking it out to the course.
The Positive: The measurements are accurate. Isn't that what you buy it for? The screen is bright enough. I don't use some of the features like scoring because I have my own cart living on a private golf course with my own scorecard, so I can't review those features. The negative: I had a G6 for years before giving out, and I liked the size of it over this model. The G6 also had a couple of features this model does not have. Example, being able to advance the hole with a button. Overall, I gave it 4 stars due to its smaller size, but it does what I bought it for, to measure distance accurately.

Small, compact, and accurate.

Completely eliminates the guess work on distances to the pin. Tracks shot patterns, round history and measures shot distances,

Multiple forms of scoring and can record up to 4 players per round.

Long battery life and easy to learn touchscreen display.

Appears to work fine. Have only played one round with it but the yardages seem to be fairly accurate.

This was a replacement for my old Approach G5 that finally gave out. It looks nice. The screen is about 2/3 the size of the G5 and the unit is less than 1/2 the size. It has a rechargeable battery, but I couldnt find any current GPS units that take regular batteries (which I prefer so I can just leave batteries in my bag and not worry about recharging). Seems to have all the features of the G5 and I'll probably get used to the small screen. Also, synced with my cell phone..whatever that means.
It's almost winter in the Northeast so probably won't use it til the spring. Maybe I'll update the review then.
Small. Seems to have all the features you need. Small

Garmin Golf- Approach G30 GPS
April 3, 2018
I had been using a Golf Buddy VS4 for years. I doubt they make that unit any longer! Thinking it was time to buy a better GPS unit I did quite a bit of research on all the available choices and decided to go with the Garmin Approach G30 unit. I like how compact it is and it has the features I was looking to acquire and how easy it is to use on the course. I mostly like the full color course mapping with the touch targeting feature. I use this feature a lot on par 5's, specifically for lay up shots-----no more guessing how far I should hit it to lay up to the yardage I want going into the green. The unit has no problem finding the course I'm at and it doesn't change holes at random like the Golf Buddy unit did. All and all a great unit for the money. I would buy it again and certainly recommend buying it if you are in the market for a new, compact and easy to use color GPS unit.
Compact Easy to use Color Touch targeting feature Easily get 2 rounds out of a charge Doesn't break the bank No subscription required NONE

Great Device That Doesn't Require A Degree In Rocket Science To Use
November 29, 2017
Perfect size device that easily fits in the palm of your hand and has a useful amouñt òf information when out on the course. Syncs easily with the Garmin Connect App and their Tru Swing Golf Analyzer. Access to Tru Swing Metrics rìght from the G30 ìs really helpful when pĺaying so you can see what you are doing right or wrong after any shot that has the Tru Swing attached to the club. Screens are easy to navigate and the four còrners allow you access to all the info you need. Scorecard can record scores for a foursome and you can access the scorecard to adjusts scores at any time. Belt clip is handy but nòt ideal as it takes me a little to long to get it back in the clip. I bought there lanyard attachment so I can leave it on my beĺt and raise it to see the info I want. Ì wear a Samsung Gear 3 smart watch so having a golf GPS watch ìs cumbersome and too small to be useful fòr my aging eyes. This is an excellent device that is unobtrusive, light and can actually provide battery life for more than 2 rounds. Rockbottom price and shipping were excellent and Garmin customer service is actually staffed with knowledgeable people who handle inquiries well. The hold time was rather lengthy at 25 minutes but using their leave a call back number made it painless. They called back before their announced hold time and that maķes ìt a pleasure rather than listening to hold music. Anyone looking for an alternative to a large handheld ĢPS or GPS watch should get one of these. As for using my smartphone, no way! Battery drain, data usage, possibility of losing it or damaging it makes it a poor substitutefor a dedicated device. Check the G30 Approach out. You will be pleasantly surprised and there are no subscriptions required for their updates.
