Give your game a boost of confidence with Approach G5, a rugged, waterproof, touchscreen golf GPS packed with thousands of 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 course maps throughout North and Latin America. Approach’s highly sensitive GPS receiver pinpoints your position and removes guesswork from your game. As you move, it automatically updates your position, so you’ll always know your yardage. There are no subscriptions or setup fees, and it's compliant with USGA and R&A rules (permitted when Local Rule is in effect; see USGA Decision 14-3/0.5).

Trees Ahead

Tired of trees blocking your view? We’ve included Tree Line Coverage for most courses (with more to come) to help you see where trees line your fairways, further allowing you to adjust your shot.

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 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 helps you 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.

Keep Score Digitally

Approach doubles as a digital scorecard for your foursome. After the game, you can save and review the scores on your computer at home.
