Good but not perfect. I bought this as a present for my wife who was always asking me the distance from her ball to the pin. Its certainly compact and to be honest this is its major weakness. If you have perfect 20/20 vision then its great. However, for us mortals its small size does make reading from the trolley almost impossible. It does what it claims although it did not have a pond hazard on my course. Garmin say they will correct it next January.Its multitude of features may be excessive for most of us who only want to be aware of distance to a hazard and to the pin. Rather like the latest mobile phones, its a great toy for adults.

Excellent piece of kit Bought this recently ahead of a long weekend away playing golf in Scotland. Excellent piece of kit – only slight gripe was it sometimes took a while to pick up the GPS signal at the courses we were playing but once it had, was accurate and by far and away the best device we had amongst us – and that included a Garmin GPS watch and a Nikon laser rangefinder. Holder kept it nice and secure on my bag and managed to get 3 full rounds out of it before having the recharge it – in fairness though, that was my fault for not doing it sooner and it died as I had a 120 yard approach onto the 18th green so wasn’t really going to argue ! All in all would recommend this – would have given it 5 stars if not for how quickly it picked up the GPS signal but that is being a little picky.

Excellent value, switches from Scotland to Australia, good features. I wanted to replace a Skycaddie which needed a new battery, was misting up in the rain and for which I needed to renew my subscription. Furthermore, the Skycaddie software (when linked to the PC) had always been troublesome from the day I bought the device. I looked at several devices and spoke to friends who had different devices before deciding on the G6 which seemed to have all the functionality I needed at a reasonable price. I especially needed the worldwide range of courses, not just Europe.
