  • 1Description

Get comprehensive yardage and hole information on up to 39,000 golf courses with the black Approach G8 from Garmin. This GPS-supported, handheld golf computer features a 3" color touchscreen display that shows you precise yardage distance to the front, back, and middle of greens. You can even preview course details before you play—see doglegs, traps, pin positioning, and more before you step into the tee box. Other useful features include PlaysLike Distance, which accounts for changes in course elevation by showing the adjusted distance to the green, PinPointer blind shot assistance, club selection advice, and more.

All yardage and course data comes preloaded on the Approach G8. To ensure your information is up to date and correct, every Approach includes free lifetime course updates through Garmin Express—Garmin's free device-management software. Course updates are added up to 4 times a year.

Use the Approach's digital scorecard and stat-keeping capabilities to track your performance as you play. The Approach can be set to use stroke play (medal play), Stableford, skins, or the match play scoring system. It features handicap scoring options, which enable you to either enter a player's local handicap or determine the handicap using the index/slope method. When you've finished golfing, you can upload and view all your saved scorecards on Garmin Connect, Garmin's free community site where you can track, review, analyze, and share all your golfing data. Additionally, thanks to the G8's Wi-Fi connectivity, you can automatically upload data to Garmin Connect and even update the firmware and course information, without being tethered to a computer.

Engineered with golfers in mind, the Approach G8's touchscreen is designed to be both glove-friendly and sunlight readable. You'll no longer struggle to see or access the data you need. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts up to 15 hours in GPS mode, enough for a full day of golf. In case you are on the course all day, the Approach G8 is Bluetooth-enabled, so it can receive call, text, and email alerts from compatible smartphones.

PlaysLike Distance
The PlaysLike Distance feature gives golfers distances to the target. Distances are adjusted for uphill or downhill shots.
Smart Notification
Receive emails, texts, and alerts right on your handheld. The Approach receives the wireless signal from your compatible smartphone, lets you know you have a message, and displays the full text on its own screen whenever you're ready to read it.
Tells you the direction to the pin, even if you're so deep in the rough you can't see the flag.
Digital Scorecard
Keep track of strokes for up to 4 players. Manage or review totals or an individual's score throughout the round, or access a printable version on your computer after the match. Scoring options include Stroke Play, Stableford, Skins, and Match Play with adjustable handicaps.
Maps with Layup Arcs
Large, bright, high-contrast graphics and numbering improve screen readability. Layup arcs drawn on the map offer at-a-glance references to 100, 150, 200 and 250 yards for layup decisions.
Track Your Stats
The enhanced stat tracking feature keeps track of fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts per round. Not only can you check your stats during the round, but you also can download and print them from your computer.
Club Advice
The Approach remembers how far you hit each club, then gives recommendations on which to use based on distance. Plus, you can customize the names of your clubs.
Customized Distances
Select, label, and save the distance to a particular point on the course. Mark your current GPS position, or use the touch targeting feature to select the point you'd like to save.
