I have both.  I use laser because I suspect North Korea is messing with our satellites.

I use both especially on courses with blind shots or unfamiliar courses. With the garmin I can look at the screen to se if there are hazards until I get a sight line to use the laser.

I use both, Garmin g20 watch.  GPS is great for tee shots (hit driver or three wood?) and layups (285 to center of green, play 200).  Home course also has some blind greens.  Lastly, GPS is good reality check on laser - (center of the green is 160, laser says 190, must have missed flag.)

It might be overkill, but the combo is pretty flawless.

The Chinese also have missiles that can shoot down satellites. When that day comes I'll still have my laser. :)

Agreed it might be overkill but the combo is flawless.
I have both and use the GPS much more over the laser but like them both a lot.
