Garmin Approach G8 Touchscreen GPS is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good GPS The unit's overall accuracy seems very good, nearly on par with laser rangefinders. My main complaint about the unit is that all the extra features make it pretty complicated; even measuring distance for each club takes more steps than it should. I would gladly trade some of the complexity for simpler operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement for my G4 Very lightweight, easy to read in the sunlight, improved features. Bought a mount that fits in the golf cart drink holder (at a truck stop), has a long flexable arm, and easily clamps around the G8. The G8 works as well as some of those GPS screens in the golf carts of the very high end clubs. When you turn it on, it recognizes which course and gives yardages for everything (how many yards to clear the water or sand, etc). The ability to keep track of all strokes of your 4-some keeps things honest for drinks at the end of the round. Great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product, accurate This product was very good and accurate but missed one feature I needed. My eyes aren't that good to be able to mark a distance, such as clearing a hazard without expanding the screen. I somehow thought it had a zoom feature to allow you to expand the course layout to mark the distance you wanted. It doesn't . That's probably a little picky but important to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 15th club I've used my G8 for about 2 and 1/2 years now. Some of my golfing buddies who have other devices are envious of my Garmin and if they had it to do over again would purchase the G8. I love the features, particularly the touch screen ability to determine distances to hazards etc. That's a great help in club selection. It also speeds up play. The pin location feature, though beyond my skill level needs (18 handicap), allows me to hit approach shots with more confidence and really does help my accuracy to the pin. Bottom line: don't leave (for the golf course) without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful device I made an error with the original set up of my G8 but a quick call to Garmin connected me with a very helpful technician who fixed my mistake. The G8 now functions perfectly and I am extremely happy with it.
