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.
Smart Notification lets you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your handheld, even if you’re in the middle of the fairway. G8 receives the wireless signal from your iPhone® 4s or later, let’s you know you have a message, and displays the full text on its own screen whenever you’re ready to read it.
Club Advice remembers how far you hit each club and makes a recommendation based on shot distance. PinPointer lets you know which way to the pin even if you are in the woods or deep in a trap.
Approach G8 doubles as a digital scorecard for your foursome with scoring options for Stroke Play, 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.
Zero in on the pin 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.
Garmin Connect includes an online golf community 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.
