Looks like the Garmin Approach G5 may have some competition. Savant GPS has announced the OnPar GPS, which they claim is the “first hand held color touch screen GPS rangefinder,” and with availability slated for next month, it does indeed look like they’ll beat Garmin to market.

It looks quite attractive and perhaps even more robust than the Approach, but I have my doubts that they’ll be able to match Garmin’s skills when it comes to creating an intuitive interface. No word on price yet, but the screen is a wee bit bigger than that of the Garmin Approach (3.5″ vs. 3″).

TechCrunch has the full news release.

  1. OnPar GPS makes a great product. I’ve meet some of their management and seems to be a great crew and company.

    I thought that your visitors would be interested in our service of Renting OnPar and Skycaddie Golf GPS systems. We’re the Netflix of Golf GPS unit, but we let you try before you buy, or simply just rent.
