WRX Spotlight: Garmin Approach Z80 laser rangefinder

Product: Garmin Approach Z80

Pitch: From Garmin: "See the game differently with the Approach Z80 laser range finder with GPS. Laser ranges are accurate to within 10", so you can take dead aim at the flag. See a full-colour CourseView and Green View overlay in 2-D, showing distances to the front and back of the green, plus hazards on more than 41,000 courses worldwide."


Our take on the Garmin Approach Z80 Laser Rangefinder

In terms of laser rangefinders, the Garmin Approach Z80 does all the little things well and then packs on a bundle of additional features, which makes the product unique.

For starters, one of the coolest features of the Garmin Approach Z80 is the 2D hole layout that appears on the left-hand side of the screen. The image serves as a virtual map of the hole, and offers you a great view of what's in store next should you either pull or push your shot, making it one of the best rangefinders on the market for use on your tee shots. The rangefinder also allows you to enter your average driving distance, which will automatically suggest where your tee shot should land.

    Really like the idea of this rangefinder as I use a gps watch and rangefinder during my rounds and this puts them together in 1 package . My concern is the 10-20 seconds it takes to start up each time it comes out of standby (which it sounds like it will go into standby after every shot). Seems very excessive and will slow up play as you wait for rangefinder. Would be curious if this has been the case with those that have used it.
