    Here's a little more detail:

    The Garmin Approach G8 Golf GPS has more features than any other Garmin GPS. The state-of-the-art GPS is setting the standard with its new PinPointer technology and a battery life of more than 15 hours to last through an entire weekend of golf. The slim, sleek design may be deceiving, but the G8 is rugged enough to use in a rainstorm or throw in your bag without fear of damage. Get accurate distances for more than 40,000 international courses and free WiFi course updates for life at no additional cost. With all these features and more, the Garmin G8 is everything you need to enhance your experience on the golf course. 

    Take advantage of the many features that the Garmin Approach G8 GPS offers to elevate your game:

    PinPointer Technology
    Find the center of the green, even if you can’t see it, with PinPointer technology! The unique feature points you in the right direction, helping you recover from tough blind shots.

    Smart Notification
    New to the G8 GPS is Smart Notification, Garmin's latest feature that let's you stay connected while allowing you to remain focused on the course. Using Bluetooth technology, you can receive emails, texts and alerts directly on the G8 without having to dig around your golf bag for your iPhone. Smart notification is compatible with iPhones (4s or later).

    Precise Distance on 40,000+ Worldwide Courses
    Accuracy is improved with the new, innovative PlaysLike Distance feature. The GPS adjusts for both uphill and downhill shots to give golfers precise distances to their target. You can also customize distances and use Green View to zero in on the pin and drag the flag to position it where you see it, giving you more accurate yardage.

    Garmin Approach G8 Golf GPS Devices

    Easy-to-Read Touchscreen and Big Numbers Mode
    The 3” touchscreen is bright and easy to read even during the brightest days on the course. The Approach G8 makes 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 Advice
    The G8 acts like a caddy in the palm of your hand by automatically remembering how far you hit each club to offer recommendations on which club to use based on your previously recorded shot distances.

    Stat Tracking
    With enhanced stats, the G8 keeps track of fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts per round. Stats can be reviewed during the round and they can also be downloaded for later review.

    Garmin Connect
    Become part of the online golfer community by sharing your scores and comparing rounds. The G8 is now compatible with Garmin Connect, giving golfers the chance to upload, analyze and share scorecards and other data, including fairways hits and number of putts. With Garmin Connect, golfers can keep track of whom they’ve played and who won each round. Garmin Connect also tracks golfers’ tendencies, trends and progress, helping golfers improve their game over time. 

    More, More, More!
    The rugged device allows you to use the GPS in a rainstorm or keep it in your bag without fear of damage. The built-in digital scorecard can save scores for up to four players. Scoring options include Stroke Play, Stableford, Skins and Match Play with adjustable handicaps.
