Garmin Approach G8 GPS Device
Garmin Approach G8 GPS Device
The G8 gives you a full picture of the game on its capacitive-touch, wide, 3-inch colour display. Including the popular PlaysLike Distance feature which adjusts for downhill and uphill shots, Club Advice, as well as PinPointer for assistance on blind shots – the G8 is loaded with features designed to maximise your game.
With over 30,000 international courses preloaded, and free Wi-Fi updates for life, you gain instant access to a world of golf information and statistics. This feature-rich GPS device also includes Smart Notification, and Garmin Connect - Garmin’s new online golf community.
The Approach G8 offers a significant range of features, despite its very slim profile. Get precise distances to the target, adjusted for downhill or uphill shot conditions.
Club Advice makes recommendations (a result of remembering how far you hit each club) based on shot performance. Even if you find yourself in the woods or deep in a trap, the included PinPointer feature lets you know the way to the pin. Big Numbers Mode provides for easier viewing by increasing the size of the font for back, centre, and front distances.
Stay Discretely Connected
Receive convenient text, emails, and alerts directly on your handheld thanks to Smart Notification. This technology is powerful enough to reach you, even if you’re in the middle of the fairway. With your iPhone 4s or later, the G8 is capable of receiving a reliable wireless signal, and displays the full text on its own screen after notifying you about the arrival of a message.
Garmin Connect Golf Community
An online community that allows you to play, share, and compare your stats, Garmin Connect is the ultimate destination for friendly competition and inspiration. Download and compare your last round against others, and track handicap improvements on every course you play. The online community can even assemble your optimal round by combining the lowest score on each hole to achieve your ideal 18 on that particular course.
More Scorecard Options
This amazing GPS system doubles as a digital scorecard. Enjoy scoring options such as Stroke Play, Skins, Match Play, and Stableford, with adjustable handicaps.
See Targets and Track Stats
At 100, 150, 200, and 250 yards, colourful layup arcs inform you as to exactly how far you need to hit while laying up. Touch any position on the sunlight-readable display and the integrated “Touch Targeting” will show you the precise distance to that exact spot – landing area, hazard, fairway, or the back, middle, or front of the green.
Putts per round, greens in regulation, and fairways hit are tracked by the enhanced stats system. Check these statistics during your round to improve your performance. Use a computer to download and print them for later viewing.
Get on the Green
Using Green View, zero-in on the pin by simply tapping the flag on the map to zoom, then drag the position of the flag to where you see it. This provides exceptional accuracy in regards to yardage.
Smart Notification: Compatible with iPhone® 4S and later and OS7 or later. iPhone is a trademark of Apple Inc.
