Give your game a boost of confidence with Approach G5, a rugged, waterproof, touchscreen golf GPS 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.
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 and R&A rules (permitted when Local Rule is in effect (see USGA Decision 14-3/0.5).
Tired of trees blocking your view? We?ve included Tree Line Coverage for most courses (with more to come) to help you see where trees line your fairways, further allowing you to adjust your shot.
Track Your Stats
Now available for download, the new Stat Tracking software package for the Approach G5 lets you analyze your game while staying simple and easy-to-use. Track your putts per round, greens hit in regulation, fairways hit and the average distance you hit every club.
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.

This item is refurbished or 'Newly Overhauled' direct from the Garmin factory.
What does refurbished mean? This is the answer direct from Garmin:
These are systems that have been returned to Garmin from either an end user or dealer that may or may not have been used. Many of the units Garmin gets back from their larger retailers are actually found to be working fine, but end users have returned them for any number of reasons. Whereas some units do come back with real failures. Garmin therefore takes all these units that come back, tests them out and, if necessary, does repairs to bring them back to "like new" status. Garmin also ensures they have the latest software update. These units are therefore as good as new, but since they have been in the field, cannot be sold as new. Garmin then offers them to their dealers at a discounted price and offers a full one year warranty, just as they do on new systems. These systems are not new, but are as good as new.
What's In The Box:
