Garmin Approach G30 overview

  • 1Description

Get comprehensive yardage and hole information on up to 40,000 golf courses with the Approach G30 from Garmin. This GPS-supported, handheld golf computer features a 2.3" color touchscreen display and features full-color course mapping, distance to the front/back/middle of greens, distance to layups and doglegs, tap-and-drag pin positioning, and Touch Targeting, which allows you to touch any point on the sunlight-readable display and see the precise distance to that spot.

The Approach is compatible with Garmin's TruSwing swing analyzer, which displays metrics including swing speed and club path that can improve the accuracy of your shots. Use the Approach's digital scorecard and stat-keeping capabilities to track your performance as you play. 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.

The Approach G30's touchscreen is designed to be both glove-friendly and sunlight readable, so 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 G30 is Bluetooth-enabled, so it can receive calls, texts, and email alerts from compatible smartphones.

Preloaded Course Data
Approach G30 comes with more than 40,000 preloaded courses worldwide, offering full-color maps and Green View, for true orientation from wherever you are on the course, and the ability to manually place the pin in the correct location for the day, giving you more accurate yardage.
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.
TruSwing Compatible
Pair the Approach G30 with the separately sold Garmin TruSwing sensor for accurate metrics needed to identify and correct faulty swing mechanics.
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.
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.

    Garmin Approach G30 reviews

    Approach G30 Handheld Golf GPS is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall golf gps 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.
