Garmin 010-01230-00 Approach G7 Golf Course GPS
This spring, Garmin will release two handheld golf GPS units: The Approach G7 and the Approach G8.
The Approach G7, at $299, is the cheaper of the two units. It has a 1.4” x 2.2” (3.6 x 5.5 cm); 2.6” diag TFT reflective touchscreen with a 160 x 240 pixels resolution. Inside is a rechargable lithium battery.
The unit has some interesting features:
Plays like Distance Gives The Golfer Distances To The Target, Adjusted For Uphill Or Downhill Shots
Smart Notification Receive Email, Texts And Alerts From Your Iphone (4S Or Later) Directly On Your Golf Handheld
Garmin Connect Online golf community lets you play, then share and compare your round
Club Advice Remembers how far you hit each club, and provides recommendations on which club to use based on your shot distances
Big Numbers Mode For easy viewing on your screen, increase the font size for distances to the front, back and middle of the greens
With the “Plays Like” feature, I wonder if it is usable in competition. I also seriously question the need for notifications from the phone. Don’t we play the game to get away from the world?
