Give your game a boost of confidence with Approach G5, a rugged, waterproof, touchscreen golf GPS packed with thousands of preloaded golf course maps. Approach uses a high-sensitivity GPS receiver to measure individual shot distances and show the exact yardage to fairways, hazards and greens.
Eliminate the Guesswork
Approach displays and updates your exact position on stunningly detailed, preloaded course maps throughout the United States and Canada. Approach's highly sensitive GPS receiver pinpoints your position and removes guesswork from your game. And as you move, Approach automatically updates your position, so you'll always know your yardage. There are no subscriptions or setup fees, and Approach is compliant with USGA and RA rules.
Additionally, we are enhancing our courses with tree line features. Trouble may lie ahead with the trees for some players or others will use the tree line features as a strategic place to focus their aim on a drive or approach. Look for this feature to be added to more U.S. and Canada courses during our regular updates.
Track Your Stats
Now available for download, the new Stat Tracking software package for the Approach G5 lets you analyze your game while staying simple and easy-to-use. Track your putts per round, greens hit in regulation, fairways hit and the average distance you hit every club.
Touch Your Target
Need to measure distances for your next shot? Touch any point on the sunlight-readable display, and Approach G5 shows the precise distance to that exact spot - fairway, hazard, landing area, or the front, middle and back of the green.
Get on the Green
Approach G5 helps you zero in on the pin with Approach G5's 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.
Keep Score Digitally
Approach G5 doubles as a digital scorecard for your foursome. After the game, you can save and review the scores on your computer at home.
Add More Courses
Check back here for the current list of courses. Only US courses are available at the moment, but Canadian courses are coming soon! With lifetime free updates, you're guaranteed the latest software at all times. We're constantly adding more courses to our map data, as well as updating and improving our course maps for Approach G5. Download the latest courses for free.
