How Much Space Do You Need?
Approach R10 is placed 6'-8' behind the ball when setup. When hitting into an enclosure or net, Approach R10 will need at least 8' of ball flight. In all, 16' of depth is required when used indoors.
Typically we recommend a space at least 8'W x 8.5'H x 10'D. But it's always smart to swing your longest club in the space you are hitting to ensure comfort and enough room in all directions. What you are hitting into (net, hitting bay, etc) can also play into how much space you need.

Garmin Approach R10
Due to software issue, returned device. Waiting on Garmin to announce new version of Approach device. This was no fault of Rain or Shine, but manufacturer’s issue. Full refund was provided.
I love this launch monitor / simulator! I find it overall accurate enough to have fun and get some basic info about my swing. Swing speed ball speed direction distance and trajectory are all great, ball spin has a tendency to be off to some degree. A ton of fun overall and addicting.
