Jake’s Journal: Confessions from CES


Approach_016Approach_005Approach_008The first day of CES proved a few things to me. People love the idea of saving gas and money. Even non-golfers can tell that the Approach G5 is a game-changer. Sometimes, valet parking is the cheapest way to go. And I have to work on my game – my short game, my long game and just about anything to do with the game of golf.

While ecoRoute and nuMaps lifetime offer savings – suggesting fuel-efficent routes and numerous map updates for one payment, respectively – I’m hoping that the Approach will save my golf game. Because I’m not so good. After all, I’m the outdoor/fitness guy and love to live that life. When I was handed a Forerunner when I started, I ran my first marathon a couple months later. Give me an Oregon or Colorado, and I’ll tackle mountain trails all day long. So with the introduction of the Approach, I need to be able to swing a club without embarrassing myself. And the Approach, even with its touch-targeting and preloaded courses, can’t solve that by itself. So I’m recruiting help from my friends Dan the Engineer and Carl. As part of our outdoor rec team, Dan represents the brains behind the Approach. As a friend and avid golfer, Carl is the brains behind my golf resurgence. And Carl’s going to chime in on the Garmin blog, posting tips and behind-the-scenes wisdom in his Caddy Confidential. Here are a few pictures from a recent outing with Dan, Carl and the Approach, and we’re also going to bring you videos in which we’ll discuss specific features… and my mulligans.
