The sleek, lightweight and durable Approach G8 has a 3” capacitive touch color display and is feature-packed! The G8 starts with precise distances for more than 30,000 international courses, with free Wi-Fi® course updates for life, then adds: PlaysLike Distances, Smart Notification messaging, PinPointer blind shot assistance, a rechargeable 15 hour battery, and the online share-and-compare golf community within Garmin Connect™. The PlaysLike Distance gives you distances to the target, adjusted for uphill or downhill shots. The Smart Notification allows the G8 to receive the wireless signal from your iPhone® 4s or later, and lets you know you have a message by displaying the full text on its own screen whenever you are ready to read it. The Club Advice feature remembers how far you hit each club and makes a recommendation based on shot distance while PinPointer lets you know which way to the pin even if you are in the woods or deep in a trap. Use the Big Numbers Mode to increase the font size of the front, back and center distances. Doubling as a digital scorecard, the G8 can keep score for a foursome with scoring options for StrokePlay, Stableford, Skins and Match Play with adjustable handicaps. Colorful layup arcs at 100, 150, 200 and even 250 yards let you know exactly how far you need to hit when laying up. Touch Targeting lets you touch any point on the sunlight-readable display, and it shows the precise distance to that exact spot — fairway, hazard, landing area, or the front, middle and back of the green. Enhanced stats keeps track of fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts per round. Check your stats during the round, or download and print them from your computer afterwards. With Green View, just tap the flag on the map to zoom in on the green — then you can drag the flag to position it where you see it, giving you more accurate yardage. And, Garmin Connect includes an online golf community (using WiFi) that lets you play, then share and compare. Download your round and contrast it to your last round, track improvements to your handicap for every course you play. The Garmin Connect golf community can even assemble your ideal round, combining your best score for each hole to get your ideal 18 for that course.
