Garmin Approach R10 Setup & Space Requirements

The Garmin R10 unit sits 6-8' behind the ball. When hitting into a net or impact screen, it needs at least 8'+ of space in front for ball flight measurements—but the more, the better.

That means at the minimum 14' of of room depth. You will also want at least 10' of width, and if your golf setup is indoors, we recommend at least 9' minimum of ceiling height—for comfortable, stress-free swinging.

Other important setup tips, include:

  • When using a golf mat, the Garmin R10 should be on the same level.
  • The red alignment line on the device should be aligned with the tee location and the target of the shot. A golf club can be used between the alignment line and tee location to confirm they are lined up.
  • The Approach R10 only works through the Garmin Golf app, which needs to be downloaded onto your mobile device.
  • When using third-party software like E6 Connect or TGC 2019 that can be used on a PC, you'll connect to the software through the Garmin Golf app.
