Easy-to-Read Golf GPS Models

It’s not at all uncommon for us to hear from users about the difficulting of reading the numbers on their golf GPS devices. That’s why we keep a current list of Easy-to-Read Golf GPS Models.

Our main considerations in ranking these units are: the size of the numbers, the ease of use, the quality, and the price. For users who need big numbers on the screen, we believe that other features are less likely to be utilized, so for the most part, that is not a consideration. We also recommend checking out our Best Voice Golf GPS picks.

Izzo Swami 6000 - Read Full Review

This is one of our favorite golf GPS devices to look at. The screen is bright and colorful and the numbers are large and easy to read. It's also at a price point that we love! Even with the large bright screen, the battery life is still up to 16 hours. Although it has a scorecard, we don't think it's user-friendly and would not recommend this model to anyone looking for a scorecard feature. In truth, most users don't use their golf GPS devices for scorekeeping. If that is important to you, we suggest checking out models from Garmin. The Swami 6000 comes with a strong magnet for easy mounting to your cart or the included belt clip. It has distances to hazards and doglegs, and it has an IPX3 rating which should be good enough for most rainy weather conditions.

Garmin Approach G30 - Read Full Review

This full-featured little golf GPS unit comes preloaded with over 40,000 golf courses. You'll get full hole views of every hole and touch targeting to anywhere on a hole. When you bring up Green View, you can even adjust the pin placement for more precise distance. Although the G30 drops the "Plays Like" feature found on the Garmin Approach G8 that adjusts for elevation, it does connect with your smartphone to display, text messages, emails, etc. It is small enough to carry in a pocket but also comes with a clip and a lanyard for your belt or golf bag. This model also has 'Big Numbers' mode for distances to the front, middle, and back of the greens.

Score compiled from multiple sources.
The Izzo Swami 6000 has a colorful screen with LARGE easy-to-read distances to the front, middle, and back of every green. That alone makes this the ideal pick for anyone who might struggle to see the numbers on other golf GPS devices. Honestly, it’s just nicer to look at than others in this price range.

Early on, as were doing our Bushnell Phantom 2 Review, we knew we had a top contender!

Bushnell Phantom 2 User Rating: 4.55 Stars 4.55 out of 5 (435 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

The Bushnell Phantom 2 is the perfect golf GPS for 95% of the golfers we serve. Out of the box, it’s ready to go and has everything you need with no fuss. You turn it on and it finds the course and the hole and is typically ready for play in less than a minute.

The large font and transreflective display make it easy to see in all conditions. The new stronger and larger BITE magnet holds firmly to your cart. If you’re walking, the included belt clip or carabiner make it easy to find distances when you need them. [Read more…]

GolfBuddy GB Voice 2 SE Review

Order from Amazon

OrderGolfBuddy Voice 2 SE

The most important thing we can tell you in our GolfBuddy GB Voice 2 SE Review is that this compact model can get up to 20 hours of battery life! That’s six more hours than the previous version. This is important not only for those of you who want to get a few rounds in before recharging, but it matters over the life of the device, as the performance of all rechargeable batteries decline over time.

Like previous models of the GolfBuddy Voice, it’s small, compact, and simple to use. The ratings continue to come in strong for this line of Voice with LCD golf GPS rangefinders. We consistently rate these products at or near the top of the category. [Read more…]

Here’s a quick summary of our Bushnell Neo Ion 2 review.

We love it!

The reason… This watch is almost identical to its predecessor, the Bushnell Neo Ion and we loved it. There is one big improvement to the Ion 2 and that’s the Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone for automatic course updates. Simply put, Bushnell took a good product and made it much easier to use and that’s what we’re looking for in a golf GPS watch.
