  1. Impressive, really good review. Clear, well laid out, good, relevant information.
    The page is nice and clear and easy to read. Good images.
    You have struck a nice balance of describing the Garmin well without too much information or being too techy. Great to have a video too.

    Thanks for your review and I look forward to some of your future posts.


    • Hi Keith

      I appreciate your comments.

      The Garmin G10 is a more simplistic GPS device targeted at golfers who just purely want yardages and being able to keep score. It does do a few other things as described in the review.

      Thanks for stopping by.


  2. Hi Chris,

    Looks like an interesting gadget it looks like a fitness activity tracker. I did not even know one existed for helping with golf.

    Does this only work in the US or can it be used in any country?

    Is the information collated only visible at the time or does it have an accompanying app that can help give a more detailed idea of where you can improve?


    • Hi

      I appreciate your comments.

      Yes the Garmin G10 Golf GPS can be used around the world asover 40,000 golf courses have already been pre loaded. A player can also count their statistics for any given round and this can be reviewed as the Garmin G10 Golf GPS is compatible with the very innovative Garmin Connect App.

      A simple device worth considering if you want to improve your golf.
