GARMIN AP­PROACH Z80

Golf Asia - - GOLFING BUZZ -

The Ap­proach Z80 will change the way golfers use a laser range fin­der. Un­like tra­di­tional laser range find­ers, the Ap­proach Z80 pro­vides 2-D over­lays for both full colour Course View and Green View de­tail through the lens. With a sim­ple press of the Range but­ton on the de­vice, the unique flag fin­der fea­ture will lock on the flag and give pre­cise dis­tances. When look­ing through the viewfinder, the user will vis­ually see that the flag is locked into place, and map will au­to­mat­i­cally zoom in to show dis­tances to the front and back of the green. The Laser Range Arc will be drawn on the green at the dis­tance ranged to the flag, so the golfer can see if the pin is in the front, mid­dle, or back of the green. The arc can also be used to see what else is in play when rang­ing other tar­gets on the course. Ad­di­tion­ally, the Ap­proach Z80 will au­to­mat­i­cally de­ter­mine what hole the player is on to give ac­cu­rate course lay­out and par in­for­ma­tion. The Playslike Dis­tance fea­ture ad­justs dis­tances based on an up­hill or down­hill slope, so the user can se­lect the best club for the sit­u­a­tion. When a golfer finds them­selves with a blind shot, the de­vice will give the di­rec­tion and dis­tance to the cen­tre of the green us­ing the Pin Pointer fea­ture. Eas­ily turn the tour­na­ment mode switch on to make the de­vice tour­na­ment le­gal, and then turn it off to en­able the Playslike and Pin Pointer fea­tures. With built-in im­age sta­bi­liza­tion to re­duce shak­i­ness, and a 6X mag­ni­fi­ca­tion, the Ap­proach Z80 pro­vides the user with a large, crisp and clear view with course view map over­lays that show the hole lay­out. Light­weight and com­pact, it comes with a con­ve­nient car­ry­ing case with cara­biner so it’s never out of reach when play­ers need it most. Avail­able at se­lected MST Golf out­lets.
