Summary: This was great for hunting trip. I would recommend for anyone that hunts or hikes. Worked great. It's not a guided map, it's a simple arrow that points you in the direction (as the crow flies) of whatever spot you marked. Perfect for anyone playing in the woods and couldn't be any simpler to use.

Summary: This thing is horrible!! It serves me right to try to cheat on land navigation, but I wanted something that I could get a quick direction from. I tested it by marking the location of my car in the parking lot of a mall.
Summary: This is NOT a good product. I returned the original item for repair or replacement because it was completely inaccurate. The compass did not come anywhere near pointing north and the locator functions were useless.
Summary: It's bigger than I thought. It seems overly large for what it can do. It's nice for training because you can see your pace while hiking. I used the record feature while building some trails to map them. But other than that it can only hold like 4-5 days of tracking. A bit less than I would like.
Not the fault of the device but not easy to follow either

Summary: Purchased new from the Bushnell store. Tried using on a college campus and while it did return to 0 after returning to the starting point, there was a significant delay. Tried using in the Tetons on a recent trip.
Direction arrow for both compass and locator WAY OFF! Useless.

Summary: Compass and Backtrack direction arrow is WAY OFF! I compared direction against both Coleman compass and IPad Maps app (both Coleman and IPad were in agreement) but the Backtrack arrow was nowhere near what the other two showed.
Summary: while this does not show as clear as a 200.00 item, it will do all that is asked of it. the pointer does show off the mark (when you are close to your saved area), it is very close when you are several 100 yds. away. this is a must if hunting a new area.
