My wife let it slip that she is going to get me a Garmin Approach G5 for Christmas (kudos to her for thinking of it 100% on her own!). From what I have read, it features a touch screen, it is waterproof, it has updated course maps that include distances to bunkers, trees, water hazards, etc... It sounds like, with this thing, I am going to one less excuse for poor play on the course...lol

I have used the free apps on my phone which have left a great deal to be desired. I have also used the LaserLink Red Hot handheld...which also left a lot to be desired (too easy to lock onto a tree behind a green or get blocked by a hill). I haven't found one that I am 100% confident with...

Has anyone used the Garmin G5 on the course? Pros, Cons...what do you like about it...what are it's shortcomings? How is the battery life?
