Cost updating maps garmin gps
Value: The Garmin Approach G6 comes in at a reasonable price point, and with no additional fees it remains very competitively priced.
Its size, color screen, full hole graphics, and ability to determine distances to any point on the course make it a compelling value, and will undoubtedly make this a popular device.
And feel free to play in the rain – the Garmin G6 is waterproof!
The Bad: While the Garmin Approach G6 can record most of the statistics we really care about, and the individual scorecards are stored and viewable on the device or through the computer, we wish there was PC or web-based software to compile the data and track our progress (or lack thereof).
Touch any point on the map and the G6 will tell you the distance to that point, and the distance from that point to the middle of the green.
The device also features a scorecard with multiple scoring options, statistics and club distance averages.
The Good: All the features and personalized settings most players will ever need, in easy-to-access menus.
Details: Critical Golf Test: Garmin continues to improve the number of courses it has mapped, and the G6’s is exceptional in our course coverage test, placing among the top devices. Manufacturer’s Claims: The Garmin G6 works worldwide, and the company claims to have 26,600 courses available around the globe, which places it in the middle of the pack in our course coverage comparison test.
Within the United States and Canada, Garmin claims to have 18,000 courses in its database, which puts it at the top of the list. Simple interface, including buttons and touchscreen, allows the user to easily access different features and enter information. The Bad: When using the touchscreen to target a desired point, your finger may block the view of the cross-hair and distance to the target.
The G6 maintains the same size color touchscreen of the previous generation of Garmin golf handhelds (2.6″ diagonal) in a sleeker design (0.8″ thick) that weighs in at a mere 3.4 ounces.
The G6 is the smallest GPS device with a color screen on the market as of Spring 2012.
