Really enjoying getting to know this device. Accurate with distance and I like the ability to measure each shot (the good ones anyway). Just learning how to use for match play and other scoring options. Picture clear and in colour. Pin placement and picture of green works well. Club selection advice an advantage as I input more of my shot distances in. I am very happy with my new G8.
ProsClub selection option for each shot. Colour screen clear and with good detail. Ability to move pin placement on green approach.

This is way better than a range finder. You can actually see the entire hole and it gives you ranges to hit shots. I really love the fact that tou can measure your shots as well. Overall best product out there
great product by Garmin

Best golf aid that I have purchased. Love having the accurate yardage at my fingertips before pulling the suggested club out of my bag. I would definitely go with this GPS, bigger screen (nice for seniors), flag placement on the green for a more accurate distance.
ProsBigger screen than others and flag placement on the green.

The club advice on the Garmins is great. If you need to take your high 80s to high 70s, this will do it. It takes your club distances and every time you measure a distance, at the end of your round you update shots and it will give you and average. I've shot 3 of my personal best scores using Garmin and I am not disappointed!
ProsPlays like distances, club advice, has an SD slot to save rounds and upload maps
simplicity and accuracy

The G8 is amazing. I was worried about spending this much on a golf GPS but it is worth it. I had 2 different Sky Caddies before this and they were good when the worked but both units crashed and had to send back. The yearly fees rubbed me the wrong wat too. The Garmin is very accurate and easy to use. It is a great size. It fits in my pocket and the screen is ok for my 50 year old eyes. The scorecard feature works great. It is easy to find a distance to any point on the course. The Pin Pointer feature came in handy when I was playing a new course with several blind shots. It is expensive but it is a great gadget loaded with features.
ProsCompact size. Good screen. Loaded with useful features. Easy to use after a round or two.
