Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Handy on the Course This product has a lot of features I will probably never use. I will never use the cell phone/text function on the Golf Course. It provides accurate yardage and is very user friendly. The display is excellent. I found if you hit a ball into another fairway the unit switches to that hole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin continues to be best I really like the screen on this new product. I had the G6 before and liked it but the larger screen and larger numbers are a plus. Have not tried the messaging portion of this and probably will not. I also do not need the score card, but as far as GPS systems go, you will not be disappointed when you use this for it's intended purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the gadget guy... Steep price, but the best GPS you can get right now. Text and email feature is completely useless. Stop letting engineers design these things...get input from actual golfers. My phone is in the cart, if I need to check it I can do that between holes. No text is so important I need it on my GPS. Screen is bright and responsive. I'd like to see it without Bluetooth for less money. Best tool for its intended purpose though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loving my G8 Have only used the device 4 times. Liking the club suggestion and the plays like feature. Only thing I would like to see different would be the charging cord could be longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great it takes the slope of hills and adds the distance for you its great it takes slope of the hills and adds or subtracts distance for your next shot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great GPS but over-priced for a product you can't use in tournament play. It would be nice if Garmin let buyers know this GPS cannot be used during tournament play. I compete on the Golf Channel Am Tour and the Pepsi Tour and lost count of the number of players that have been disqualified for using a GPS that calculates slope and distance.
