The Approach G30 comes with more than 40,000 preloaded courses worldwide, so you’re ready to play.

Green View gives you its true orientation from wherever you are on the course, even if you’re behind it and it allows you to manually place the pin in the correct location for the day, giving you more accurate yardage. Plus, with Big Numbers Mode, Approach G30 shows yardage references to the front, middle and back of green in a large font, without distractions.

The Approach G30 GPS golf device is compact so you can easily slip it into and out of your pocket, or take advantage of versatile mounting options to stash it nearly anywhere including your belt, pull cart or golf bag and easily slide it in and out with 1 hand.

Digital scorecard makes it easy to keep scores for up to 4 players and it automatically uploads to Garmin Connect when synced. With stat tracking, you can keep track of putts, greens in regulation and fairways hit. Plus, it features an odometer and round timer for even more data on your game.

With Approach G30, you’re always in touch. It displays smart notifications¹ so you can get alerts from your phone for incoming calls, texts and emails. Plus it offers up to 15 hours of battery life on each charge for more time on the links.
