Garmin Z80 Rangefinder & GPS Review

The New Garmin Approach Z80: Golf GPS Laser Range Finder
offers the best of a Rangefinder and a GPS in one unit, without requiring the need to carry multiple units during a round.

The display on the rangefinder shows the usual distances with the press of a button, however, it also operates with an onscreen GPS map of the current hole, hazards and Playslike Distance to each pin that is accurate to 10″.

Paranoid Android Golfer says:

Gun it 157 yards hand me the wedge……hulk smash lol

chillaz3000 says:

Looks like Garmin just changed the game. It will be interesting to see what the other companies do in response to this

chris says:

Where have you been man. More reviews

alan nicoll says:

Callaway xr speed driver review would be great

Rob C says:

Really good review of this Alex. I ordered one last night and your review was pretty essential in making up my mind, seeing the distances to carry those quarry’s in the video gave a very good real life depiction of how it can be helpful! Thanks for all you do!

Chilcott Golf says:

Awesome fun reviews I like it a lot. Making golf less serious. great content.

James Robinson Golf says:

Great to see you back dude!

Carl Meyn says:

Dude, you trip me out. At the beginning of the video when you act surprised about the camera you set up being behind you. I spit my drink out.

Fore to Four Golf says:

given you can turn off the plays like feature, will it be legal for competition play like the Bushnell tour thingy?

Eric L says:

Haha super Mario bros

G.O.A.T_Gaming says:

currently it is 600 usd

richard deutschman says:

I bought this unit 2 months ago,work good for 3 weeks then the battery went dead after 6 holes. I called them they said I needed to download a new fix,I did it worked for 3 weeks ,then went after 7 holes,I down loaded the fix to fix l I will try it in the morning. The service department is a very poor operation.they need to test it before they sell it.

ZolaLegend25CFC says:

More videos u lazy sod!

Juan Camilo Trujillo Sierra says:

Maaaan! i was waiting for so looooong! finally ! you are just the best at reviewing! “it could be a birdie, or it could be a triple bogey” hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Dean Kellard says:

What a beautiful golf course that looks,where is it ,great vlog as usual.

Michael Walsh says:

Looks great although guessing plays like distance wouldn’t be allowed in competition?
Gr8 video as always.

Carlos Perez says:

Definitely a nice range finder. I use a GPS device for the very reason you expressed when not able to view the flag but it does take a bit to update at times

Mark Kirk says:

Great review, I use a range finder, I find it more useful, in Italy you can use a range without a slope function in competitions

Thomas Eskew says:

Where the hell have you been!?!?!

Eric L says:

Well goodbye to my Nikon 80vr

millzdieta says:

$600 ouch

Mohd Radzi Nurul Azri says:

Any decent range finder will do.. Using a leupold.. Probably more than 5 years, got it at much cheaper value. Battery life is in the range of years… I get what garmin want to sell here but it’s redundant really. If you can’t see the pin, probably best to punch out to the fairway 😉

04hulatt says:

I need to get one bad!!!!!

Robin C says:

Lovely looking course…..looks a bit snakey……welcome back

hans hansson says:

This is nothing …..

Miguel Garza says:

Enjoyed the review Alex. Any chance of using it to record the winner? Head to head, M3 440 vs Rogue sub zero??

Michael Pasvantis says:

How is there nobody out on that gorgeous course?!?! Nice review, really cool product, nice combination of the two technologies. Back to work Etches!!!

Jay Chung says:

Good to have you back Alex. Entertaining yet highly informative video as always

Rob C says:

I saw the Bushnell combo unit at the PGA Show and thought it was ingenious. Already having a Garmin X40, i love the graphics of this unit. Will be looking for the availability of it.

Thanks Alex!

ThomasKlarskov says:

You had me at “gday guys” 🙂 love your videos. Always bring a smile on my face. You know if the range finder is “legal” in tournament play?

ChristopherKee says:

Nice Nice… but does it work in the USA? You should send it to me to find out =)

04hulatt says:

I use my cell phone for golf GPS bad thing about it you got to sit there for a minute until it reboots the numbers how far to the pen but this laser scope Garmin z80 no more waiting on numbers I can just get out of the golf cart point where I want to point and learn how to use it when I get one.

Phatt Daddy says:

and at just $600 I’m sure its a bargain.

golfmaniac007 says:

Who’s in the market for $600 golf rangefinder?

Rodney Mounsey says:

Yaback, where the hell have ya bin? Hey, we’re all but that’s ridiculous.nice to have you back.

Robert Tudor says:

kenneth miller says:

Welcome back bro! Thought you left us!

Taylor Goble says:

Golf always comes down to the idiot with the stick
