Garmin Approach R10 Golf Simulator

When Garmin announced that they were bringing out the Approach R10 Golf Simulator there was a lot of excitement in the industry. The Garmin Approach R10 is the first golf simulator to provide both ball and club data in a radar unit that is a cheap enough for home golf simulator use. At 24/7 Golf, we have fully tested the Garmin Approach R10 and we are very excited at the results. At just $879.00 it compares favorably to several high end simulators that you might pay $20,000 to $30,000 for. Other big selling points for the Garmin Approach R10 launch monitor are that it integrates with E6 connect available through an iOS mobile device with 5 free courses. Through E6 connect you also get a driving range with a great practice facility. If you want more courses the Garmin Approach has over 42,000 courses using Garmin’s software. Another major selling point is the software will integrate with your smart phone to provide golf swing recording with data overlaid.

How accurate is the Garmin R10 Approach?

We have extensively tested the Garmin R10 Approach and we were very surprised with the results (given the price point). We hit over 100 shots comparing the Garmin unit with other well known popular simulator brands and the Garmin was extremely accurate. We recommend updating the firmware to the latest version when you buy your simulator as Garmin are continually making improvements to their algorithm. Below are the error rates the manufacturer stands by, and based on our testing we are not disputing this.

  • CLUB HEAD: +/- 3 mph
  • BALL SPEED: +/- 1 mph
  • LAUNCH ANGLE: +/- 1 degree
  • LAUNCH DIRECTION: +/- 1 degree
  • CARRY DISTANCE: +/- 5 yards

Course play

Garmin course play software

As mentioned, the unit comes with 42,00 preloaded courses provided by Garmin. Play a whole round of golf with up to four people without leaving your driving range bay. Try to beat your lowest scores or compete against your buddies. You can even compete against other golfers from all around the world. Forget those days when you used to lose focus and just be bashing balls off into the wide blue yonder after 10 minutes at the range, the Approach R10 Monitor’s Target Practice and course play modes will keep you engaged and entertained.
Then there’s also the opportunity to join E6 Connect, giving you even more access to great courses, plus mini games, skills challenges, training aids and more.

E6 connect course play

Although not well publicised the Garmin Approach is compatible with E6 connect software. Out of the box it comes complete with 5 free courses and more can be purchased. There is the ability to purchase many more courses. We tested the unit with E6 Connect and were very satisfied with the integration. Shots reacted immediately and were accurate.

Garmin R10 Setup:

  • Place the Garmin R10 on the ground between 1.8 m and 2.4 m behind the tee location.
    NOTE: If you are using a golf mat, make sure the bottom edge of the R10 sits above the mat.
  • Adjust the R10 so the red alignment line is aligned with the tee location and the target of the shot.
    NOTE: The ball and club angles are measured parallel to the target line.
  • INDOORS: The tee location must be at least 2.4 m away from the net.
