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.

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.

Garmin Approach G3 March 16, 2013
Reviewer: Edward Anderson from Sierra Vista, AZ United States  
The supplier allowed me to have a different shipping address from the billing address.  The Garmin G3 works great.  I had to change the setting so that it manually goes to the next hole - otherwise it sometimes switched holes before I was able to enter my score.
