I previously had a sky caddie sg5 and was tired of paying the annual subs fee. I also wanted a unit that allowed to get distances to specific points that may not have been on the map. The G5 is superb. I have used it on three occasions now and how found it to be easy to use, batteries still the original sets and accuracy is good. I noticed that one or two hazards (bunkers) were either on or off the map and I emailed the items to Garmin. Imagine my surprise when I had an email back within a day stating that they are grateful for owners providing updates and one of the technicians will review and update the course ready for the next 1/4ly update they release. Now that's customer service!
The touch screen works well, its easy to pinpoint any specific area on the hole and get yardages.
I will admit I was a little concerned that I had chosen the correct unit, but the overall experience of using and the back up customer service is superb. Would recommend to all.
Couple of areas they could improve on.
1) Add a range option so you can map yardages on the range
2) Add stroke indexes.

This is essentially a user-friendly and clear device. Helpful, but remember that knowing how far you need to hit it is not the same as being able to hit it where you want. So don't expect an immediate impact on the handicap. My home course was not listed when it came; I could not find a suitable software upgrade, but an e-mail to their support people get a very quick and helpful response with a link to the upgrade.

Although my comments would be overwhelmingly positive (especially when visiting an unfamiliar course) I would point out:
Even with the discount it is not cheap.
Battery cover can be tricky to get off.
Definitely use rechargeable batteries.
Display can be somewhat pale in bright conditions.
Would be improved by a better way of fixing it to your Powakaddy.

      Comments about Garmin Approach G5 Golf GPS Unit:

      Impressive course database and nice display with easy handling. The unit is a little bit thick in my opinion. Doesn't fit well in a pocket. I can register round data and view it on a PC, but I would like to see an export function as well.

      Purchased the G5 recently and the GPS listed all courses in several locations played straight away, easy to use, very impressed so far. Used Ni-MH rechargable batteries 2 X 1600 mAH which lasted the round no problem.
