Garmin Approach G6

Garmin Approach G6 reviewThe Garmin Approach G6 is Garmin’s top of the line golf unit. Their smallest and lightest handheld (as opposed to wrist-top models like the S1), the G6 sports a bright color touchscreen and weighs in at only 3.37 ounces. And with its small size (2.1″ x 3.7″ x 0.8″), it will easily fit into your shirt pocket.

While size counts, what’s inside also matters. Unlike the G5, which has only North American courses, the G6 offers 28,000 preloaded courses worldwide. And of course, like all models in the Approach series, the G6 allows you to measure individual shot distances and show the exact yardage to fairways, hazards and greens.
