Garmin Approach G30 GPS is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from promising... as a long time skycaddie user, it was tough for me to switch to something else but skygolf customer service finally got me to switch to Garmin. Largely on the on line recommendation from Golfspy, I purchased the G30 unit. Screen is much smaller than the sgx 5 so initially that was troubling. The unit boots up extremely quick and course is loaded in seconds. Accuracy is quite good, hits same yardage as my buddies laser. The relatively small screen size is offset by big numbers mode and the ability to zoom in on the course. A few times the touch screen was unresponsive which was frustrating. Long battery life, big plus. I am sure as I get better acquainted with the unit my satisfaction will increase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Follow up review This is a follow up to my review written on this device 4/3/17. I played another round with this device on 4/3/17, the device again failed to connect with the satellite on it's first attempt, after it did connect, it worked reasonably well for nearly 6 holes. Tried to enter my score after the 6th hole and it would not allow me to do so, I also couldn't back out of the scorecard feature using the touch screen, I had to press the power button, which locks the unit, then press it again to unlock the unit to display the next hole with distances. The remainder of the round, I could not enter scores, could not get the big numbers mode and it was an over disaster. I will be contacting Garmin Support this morning, 4/4/17, if they cannot resolve the issues remotely, I will be sending back this unit. To say I'm disappointed would be an understatement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall device Played my first round with the Approach G30 on 4/1/17. It started quickly and immediately recognized the course I was playing, but took 2-3 attempts to achieve a connection with the satellite, possibly due to the overcast and misty conditions. Took a few holes to become accustomed to how to properly navigate through all the options for scoring, putts, fairways hit and then advancing to the next hole. People with larger fingers will likely have a difficult time navigating through this device due to it's size, which is even smaller than I anticipated. My previous device was a SkyCaddie SGXw, which is noticeably larger than the G30 and a bit easier to navigate in my opinion. I decided to get rid of the SkyCaddie because of battery issues and the fact that it cost $50 per year to register to be able to use. The G30 has no yearly fees for usage and states it's pre-loaded with over 40,000 courses. Played 18 holes in approx. 3 hours and 30 minutes and still had 80% battery life remaining. The yardages appeared to be accurate, within 1-3 yards of my friends laser. Here are a list of the pros and cons. Pros: Starts quickly, noticed the course I was on quickly, yardages and hazards appeared to accurate, big numbers mode makes it easy to see distances for those of us with less then sterling eyesight, able to keep my score after a bit of trial and error, takes awhile to get used to it's smaller size, easy to view your stats via Garmin Connect, charges quickly, battery life appears to be excellent. Appears as though you could likely squeeze in 3 full rounds of use out of this device, if you're rounds don't take 5 hours each. Cons: Depending on the size of your hand and fingers, the small size could be an issue with being able to properly navigate the device, takes quite a few holes to feel your way through the device. Using the touch screen took quite awhile to adjust to, hitting the function you wanted didn't always work the first few times you attempted to use them. Overall I really enjoyed my first venture with the G30, my only wish is that this device be a bit larger in order to promote easier usage. I would recommend this device to most who enjoy a good golf GPS device, that's fairly easy to use and give you all the info and options for scoring stats, distances and hazards that you desire.
