Garmin Approach R10 Portable Golf Launch Monitor

yes, metrics are in m/s for speeds and meters for distances. Shouldn’t be an issue to adapt it to your preferred metrics though. My aim for the converter script was to provide untouched raw data from Garmin (I.e., there are fields like client key still in the file which shouldn’t be relevant for an individual‘s analysis) as some people might prefer km/h instead of mph and vice versa.

but yes I agree: the „hidden“ data is a nice bonus. Not sure why Garmin isn’t displaying those yet. 

 

Thank you for all your hard work! Sorry, I didn't mean an issue with the converter, but that it was not displaying in those units. Yes, I did do a conversion in my clean data tab to get it in those units. Hopefully they'll add it once they create a landscape mode.

Just got my unit and very excited. One thing I noticed was the long irons (4i, 5i, 6i) were all coming up short, sometimes by 50 yards. Has anyone else experienced this and have any advice? 

 

4i was only getting me 150 at times and furthest I hit it on an absolute smash was 190. That would usually be 220+. 

 

Would lighting have anything to do with this? I played a couple rounds in the afternoon in my garage and the distance was closer but still coming in short. I tried to play a round later in the evening and it was much worse.

Hi Everyone, I received my R10 last Friday and today I tried exporting all data. I used the python script to convert the JSON files to CSV and it look fine. However, if i copy all data in the table i'm missing some data points, like Smash factor.

Is this normal?

 

Other than that, my distances where off too. Going back to the range with a base so i can perfectly level the device.

Sometimes there's misreads on certain metrics. If it couldn't get a club speed it can't calculate smash factor. I wouldn't trust smash factor right now anyway because club speed is bugged.

 

If your distances were off outdoors I'd definitely check level (front to back particularly) as that will impact launch angle. Also, remember ball speeds will be down with range balls so distances compared to course will be a bit iffy. I also find roll factor to be quite conservative on the R10. Good luck!

Might have missed if this was brought up or not.  But I posted awhile ago about short distances (3.3 or 3.4) and forgot about my elevation difference here in Salt Lake (3600ft).  I'm assuming the unit does not adjust itself to altitude changes?  Maybe default is Sea Level?  Would definitely make a difference in yardage.
