Comparing the new Garmin Approach G80 vs. G8 vs. G10 vs. G30 (Chart Below)
Garmin just released its newest product in the Approach Series, called the Garmin Approach G80. As a combined handheld golf GPS and launch monitor unit, it's the first of its kind and has generated quite a lot of buzz around the industry.
We'll go into the nitty gritty details below, but here's the short of it...
The main difference is the new integrated Launch Monitor + it's related features (virtual course play, etc)!
The Approach G80 retains most of the premium GPS features that made its predecessors so great - 41,000+ preloaded courses, no subscription fees, PlaysLike distance, PinPointer, sunlight-readable screen, etc - but adds on a powerful golf launch monitor functionality that no previous golf GPS unit has ever featured. It's important to note that the Approach G80 does not provide club recommendations for shots, like the Approach G8 did. The reason being that the recently introduced Garmin Approach CT10 Game Tracker (which integrates with the G80) can now better serve that purpose.
