Overheats While Using Launch Monitor
By Brad C on 7/5/2019

Handicap: 11-15  Plays Golf: I play weekly  Dexterity: Right Hand

The technology in this device is very accurate and offer some great functionality. Unfortunately the last 2 times I have used it on the driving range I get a message that the unit is overheating and you can’t use it until it cools down. It’s hot here in North Texas but for $499 I would expect to be able to get through half of a bucket of balls before the g80 becomes unusable. Do not recommend this Garmin until they can fix this problem.

Best affordable Launch Monitor Range Finder

Handicap: 6-10  Plays Golf: I play more than once a week  Dexterity: Right Hand

The G80 is the best tech golf device I have ever purchased. I practice 3-4 days a week and I’m lost without it. No spin or launch data, but you can figure it out if you practice outside. Smash Factor gives a no kidding reality check on how well you are striking the ball. Necessary for Gapping your clubs. Tempo info is nice to settle your swing down. GPS is excellent. Not as pretty as iPhone apps but considerably more accurate... and does not kill iPhone battery. Also games and course preview helps get your head into course you may want to play. Lots of features and 100% reliable.

Perfect for on and off the course
By Richard R on 3/25/2020

Handicap: 16-20  Plays Golf: I play monthly  Dexterity: Right Hand

What I love about this GPS rangefinder is all the built in practice features! Tempo training, target practice, warm up, and playing virtual courses makes this such a versatile tool!

It isn&apost 100% accurate compared to other launch monitors costing $1000&aposs more, but I don&apost think it&aposs realistic to expect that type of performance from this item. There are youtube videos out there comparing this to Trackman and/or GC Quad so you can be the judge.

Dexterity: Left Hand

Using this for 3 months and find it excellent particularly on first time courses as it gives you good picture of each hole and allows you to measure to hazards and carry&aposs etc. Best get a phone mount to mount on golf trolley handle. Great battery life 3 rounds at least. Practice features/launch monitor/shot distance measurement/tempo all excellent. Get your iron distances and note them on back of score card holder and you will hit more greens in regulation believe me bigly ??
