Rated 4 out of 5 by PackerPlus 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.

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.

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 eli 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 DanS 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 Metsfan228 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 Golfer Don 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 Mad Max 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!

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.

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
