Jake’s Journal: Golfers give Approach a warm welcome in Florida


0110PGA 013 0110PGA 016 Good morning from sunny Orlando, where we’re showing off the just-released Approach G3 and the newly announced stat-tracking software for Approach G5. The show has only been open for a couple hours, and already my Garmin colleagues and I have been able to save people money. Golfers and industry folks who are accustomed to hidden fees and add-on charges have asked us about annual fees, paying more for more courses or how much our stat-tracking software costs. None, nope and nothing. With 12,000 preloaded golf course maps in the U.S. and Canada – and more on the way – there’s no need to pick and choose courses on a pay-to-play basis. You get them all. The courses are already on your Approach, and updating the expansive database is free and easy. Speaking of free and easy, it doesn’t get much simpler than our new stat-tracking software for Approach G5. This free software update helps golfers easily keep track of fairways hit, greens hit in regulation, putts per round and how far they hit each club. As one pair of seasoned veterans just told me moments ago about the G5, “That’s the best one we’ve ever seen.”

For those golfers looking for a little smaller device to fit in their pocket or bag, I’ve had fun showing off the new Approach G3. It packs the same number of courses and a 2.6” touchscreen into a streamlined design, featuring the easy-to-use interface familiar to anyone who has ever used any Garmin device. And that crossover appeal is always fun to see. People stopping by the booth today have told us how they love their nüvi. Or their Forerunner. Or their outdoor handheld. And now they’re ready to tee it up and take the guesswork out of their golf game.
