Compare the Garmin Approach G6 vs G5 Golf GPS

Garmin has taken the rugged Garmin G5 and redesigned it into the sleek and slim Approach G6. But don't worry, the G6 is still tough enough to take the game rigors. You will find a smaller slim design with the addition of 2 buttons for quick access to common functions. No more batteries!!! The new G6 now has an internal rechargeable lithium polymer battery. You will appreciate this unit even more if you are a world traveler. The new Approach comes pre-loaded with courses from around the world. The G5 comes pre-loaded with courses from the U.S. and Canada (worldwide courses are available at an additional cost). Still no annual fees of any kind for course additions and updates. Take a look at the side-by-side comparison to determine the right unit for your game. With the multitude of new features and the slick new design our money is on the Garmin Approach G6.
