While the Approach G6, G7 and G8 units all provide golfers with manual pin positioning, more than 30,000 preloaded courses, precise shot distance measurements, touch-tracking and more, the newest models are also loaded with exclusive, new features.

The touchscreens are bright, making them easy-to-read even during the brightest days on the course. The devices make color-coded layup arcs, touch targeting and manual pin placement come alive! For an even clearer view, you can increase the font size for the distances to the front, back and middle of the green.

Club Suggestion

Both the G7 and G8 units automatically remember how far you hit with each club. Based on the data, they offer recommendations on which club to use based on your previously recorded shot distances. Never second-guess your selection again.
