Rated 3 out of 5 by from I still need more practice navagating. Pin placement is difficult and have not figured how to save favorite courses. It does have a very long battery life for the round.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the price. Compared to other units I own, this one is a good value and easy to use. I am still getting used to its features but it easy to use. The only thing I do not care for is the scoring feature(I USE A CARD).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! Works quickly and accurately. Like that you can charge and get 3 rounds on a single charge.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy I bought this two years ago. Battery life is fine, and it is very easy to use - but those are the only good points. Screen is a bit small and very touchy. Number of courses is limited. On my home course, several holes just will not work. Other holes work, but greens and fairways don't match screen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has great color and features The g-6 is awesome. It's got great pin location to adjust and the layout of the course u use is on point

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased with G6 I bought the G6 for my wife, but have enjoyed using it quite a bit, too. Knowing the distances to the front and middle of greens as well as to hazards has changed my club selections and each time it has been for the better. Figuring out which club to use in a lay up or to hit the junction of a dog leg has been great.A few simple additional electronic capabilities would make the unit even more valuable. So I give it 4 stars rather than 5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As expected I have used but never previously owned a golf GPS. I don't like wearing watches and didn't want to have to "scope" each pin so I thought this type of GPS would be right for me. I have used it on 6 rounds so far and I am pleased with the accuracy, features and display. I am getting better at navigating my way around it. I like how I can move the pin on the GPS to match the hole. I use it on the belt clip and have had no problems. I usually charge it after 2 rounds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product works well. Easy to read. Holds charge well. Accurate measurements.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Garmin G6 GPS I purchased a G6 GPS unit as a replacement for my bushnell laser rangefinder since I like to know the approximate yardage to the hole but do not need to know that it is 78 yards to the pin versus 75 yards. At this point, I have used the unit for 2 rounds.The good - The unit is small enough to fit in your pocket and not even be noticable. Both times that I turned the unit on, it found the exact course that I wanted within 5 minutes. The yardage markers were consistent with course markers and within 2 yards of my old range finder. It is a very easy unit to use that gives readings to all the key featurs on the hole (forced carries/water/bunkers/etc) but the screen is a little touchy. I suggest using the screen lock function when putting the unit in your pocket. The one feature that I found myself really enjoying that I wasn't planning on using is the scorekeeping feature. The unit made it through two rounds without a recharge before dying in the parking lot after the second round.The bad - I expected the overview of the holes to be larger but I guess that is a lot to ask for with such a small unit. It is very easy to zoom in on any section of the course that you want to see in more detail.After 2 rounds, I am very happy with my purchase and will be happy to speed up my play versus having to always point and shoot 2-3 times with the range finder just to make sure I wasn't hitting the tree behind the flag. The new price point for this unit is also a huge plus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from G6 I have only used it a coule rounds so far. I like the graphics. The first time at hole #1 the yardage was off and I couldn't find if it had the right course or not. If it's on there I couldn't see it. After I turned it off and back on I chose the course I was at and it worked good. I don't like that it keeps asking to keep score after each hole. I didn't use it and when I look for yardage that's what I see and it's another button to push to get to where I want. I guess I will get used to it. I had the golflogix which I liked, but tierd of paying $30 a year and new batteries every 3 rounds. I can't see the Extras without glasses --- which club, scoring, etc... All I want is yardage and it looks like it will be great for that. I just hope it holds up and isn't to fragile. Good so far. Good price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I used this right out of the box. I have played 4 courses so far and the G6 picks up a satellite without a problem. Setting up computer and handling changes in the scoring section is a little quirky but I am sure that will come with time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin Approach G6 Golf GPS I am truly impressed with my golf range finder. It makes the game a little easier. I like the smaller size to carry while playing 18 holes. My friends also like it and it's features. Thank you, Randy Lukens

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice product. Used on my 3 home courses as well as three other courses on a weekend getaway 175 miles away. It was fast and accurate at all locations

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Garmin G6 My skycaddie SG5 just died. Just lines under the hole #. Didn't like the bad reviews for the SGX so I purchased the Garmin G6. I have used it 5 times and getting use to it. I do wish it were a bit bigger. Don't like to have it in my pocket or sitting in the cup holder so I am looking for some type of device to attach it to my cart. Do not like the fact that you can not keep track of your putts on the score card. Do like the fact that you do not have to down load any courses prior to arriving at the course. All courses are pre loaded and they are free. No membership to buy. The membership that I paid for with my Skycaddie is good until 2015, but even tho I am unable to use it I am not able to get a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a golf gps that is FAST and easy to use I have used a smartphone app that did yardage and score keeping and other stats. but once at the course it took a while to load the course, and then set up the stats that i wanted to track. i looked at several GPS models of garmin and other brands. I compared the G6 to the G7-8 but realized that for $100 more i could get wifi and my text messages on the device. (which i figured ment BATTERY Drain) so i also thought why do i need all that extra stuff on the device, for the sport that i like to play to get away from all that outside influence.basically this G6 loads instantly and knows what course your at. i would say about 10 seconds max and your ready to play and track your shots. the screen is easy to see in the sun and in the overcast days. i have played about 6 hrs of gold and the device was still good on the charge. Shot measuring is easy and fast as well.this came with a belt clip but this is a pretty good protector if you just keep it in the golf cart cup holder like i do. the screen responds pretty good, not like the newest smart phone but it works with a gold gloved finger which is nice.plain and simple this is the GPS that is basic and yet has all the important info about the whole. Also you can preview any course that is on the device. which i think is kind of neat if you bored.I love it enjoyPS with the G6 it will give you club average but wont recommend clubs to use. so if you are a tournament player (honestly) you can still use this device in tourny's as the 7 & 8 give you club suggestions you are not supposed to use those in a tourny. just FYI

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GPS My online purchase was to be free shipping. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but reading the instructions and playing with it I believe it will be great.
Date published: 2014-03-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value I bought the Garmin G6 for both the GPS yardage and it's ability to track the individual yardages of each club I use on the course. It's one thing to bang balls on the range; hitting the shots on the course is not the same but far more important as to the exact yardage each club produces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better technology I received this Garmin as a gift and have used it for 6 months and really enjoy the ease of use and this unit. it has many features you will learn to appreciate when you use them on a course. The points I like the most are how you can plan a hole after an errant tee shot for layup shots by touching the screen, plus the scoring and tracking driving r or left, puts and then look at where I can improve my game. I used an old sky caddie and I enjoy no user fees and downloading a course at the course, no preplanning or limits on courses stored. I can easily get 36 holes on a single charge. I like it a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rebate Received the Garmin GPS in time to put under the tree. Our son was really happy to receive it.We did not, however, receive the $50.00 rebate as advertised.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not like this GPS Purchased the G6 based on reviews. Used it for a couple holes and did not like it at all. Screen was hard to read. Touch screen positioning function was difficult to use. The screen was the same size as the Sonocaddy V300 the G6 was replacing but the G6 was much harder to read. Very little documentation and even less on web site. Boxed it up and returned it the next day. Best decision I could have made. They would have done better to design the unit a bit larger IMHO.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Garmin is a good product, but needs better software interface The Garmin G6 is a very good product for distance measurement on and around the course. However, the software they use needs improvement;1.) The battery life is hard to find (have to use Power on button). Why not display this all the time?2.) Scoring feature is very cumbersome (too many click/buttons). My previous product (Golf GURU) was excellent in this regards. After completing a hole there should be an option to auto advance to the next hole or input scoring details from the hole just played. After the score in entered, then auto advance to the next hole.3.) After the completion of a round the scoring details for each player should be placed in a better menu with less click to get there.4.) I don't like how hitting the fairway is detailed.5.) Should have the ability to turn off the other players stats.Over all this is a very good product. The size and durability are great. Garmin just needs to invests in usability, like their Auto product line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great GPS Got this a few weeks ago. it has helped me out tremendously. When I played before I bought this. My only reference were the yardage markers. now I get the distance for any hazard , green or the dogleg distance. Also love that it shows where you are on the hole AND gives you yardages for the hazards and stuff like that Where you are on the hole. Yardages are spot on. Have not had any trouble what so ever. Very pleased :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great piece of equipment. After owning a Sky Caddy and 2 different CALLAWAY'S. The GARMIN.is by far the best of the lot. It does everything I want it to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Garmin G6--Great Addition I have now used my Garmin G6 for 6 rounds and I can certainly say that I love it! It is just as accurate as my Skycaddie and the graphics are great and it is no heavier than a cellphone! I like that I can track my club distances and can review those at any time and that it keeps score and tracks statistics for me. I also like that it is ready to use out of the box and do not have to pay a fee to use it! For the negatives, I wish the screen and graphics were a little larger. The numbers are easy to see on the green view, but, hard to see otherwise, especially in full sun. I also don't like that there isn't any way to download the statistics and track them either offline or online. The Skycaddie at least does that much. All in all, it is a great addition to any golfers arsenal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin Golf This Garmin is smaller than the Sky Caddie and does not require a subscription. The Garmin is very accurate and I love the score card. It did take me a couple of rounds to figure it out.I really like it and I ran both systems at the same time and the Garmin was very accurate. I think the Garmin is every bit as good as any of the GPS systems but the no subsription is what I valued the most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin Approach G6 It works fine. Dont like the charger option. Prefer Battery only. So, I can keep GPS in my bag with extra battery. It freezes on golf course. G 5 was better

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoy it so far. Used it once, but will be using it three times in the next week. I'm sure I will enjoy it more as I get more used to it.Some people have mentioned the unit changing screens. There is a screen lock icon that come up during play. Use it. It will come up and tell you to tap power button when ready, then, an unlock icon will appear.
Date published: 2013-04-25
Rated 3 out of 5 by from G6 GPS All works the only negative is that the distance is only to the middle of the green. If you want the distance to the pin you need to guess where the pin is and move the pin on the screen to where you think it is on the green. Not sure if it is worth $299.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Gift For his Birthday, I'd bought my Dad the Garmin G3, but there were several features that made it less than satisfying. Sent that machine back and purchased the G6 and my Dad is sooooo happy. The screen is bright, the charge holds for multiple games, it's easy to use, the tap-screen feature is easy to use. He is very pleased. Very well worth the extra money for a much better machine. He's had is about a month now and is still excited about all of it's features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is my second year using the G6 and it is a great tool. It is excellent in changing holes automatically and I love the scorecard feature. It is very accurate and excellent showing greens. Love the front, middle, and back feature on the greens. The fact that it has 25,000 courses loaded is another great feature. If you are looking for a great product, this is it.
