The Garmin Approach G6, Garmin’s latest in its series of golf GPS devices, shows that the old adage understates things – sometimes GREAT things come in small packages.The Approach G6 is a completely different form factor than its G3 and G5 predecessors , and exemplifies the trend of putting all of the best features of previous devices into progressively more compact designs.Retail Price: The Garmin Approach G6 has a retail price of 9.99, coming it at the low end of price points for devices featuring full hole views, and down from its 9.99 price at time of initial release.Fees for Access to Course Database: As with the other products in the Approach line, the Garmin G6 has no fees for access to Garmin’s course database. Three-Year Total Cost of Ownership: With no cost for access to the course database or updates, the three-year total cost of ownership of the Garmin Approach G6 remains at 9.99 (the cost of the device itself), making it one of the least expensive devices featuring full hole graphics in our cost comparison of golf GPS devices.There are a few things we would change, the most notable being the arbitrary nature of when distances to mapped targets are displayed, the fact that the distance readings are positioned in a way that they may be blocked by your finger when you’re trying to tap a point on the touchscreen, and the inability to view your saved scores and statistics on a computer (they are only accessible on the device itself).

The Good: All the features and personalized settings most players will ever need, in easy-to-access menus.Mapping Accuracy: Though the maps are generally accurate, we found that the courses aren’t updated quite as often as we would like.And even if the Garmin website says that a course is “Updated”, it still may contain old map information from years ago (tsk tsk, we are docking points for this! We saw examples of this for a number of courses renovated between 3 and 5 years ago.As with the rest of the Garmin Approach line, the G6 provides preloaded courses with no additional yearly or per course fees.The brightly colored maps include a high level of course image detail and are augmented with colored layup arcs that provide context on the hole’s layout.
