  • Summary: Not the most intutive device to use, but I finally got it to function properly. Now that I know how to use it, I'll have to repeat my MT. Rose climb. Couldn't get it to record the last time.

Good while it lasted

Walter Carpenter "waltman", Amazon

  • Summary: I loved this little device. I use it for cycling/kayaking. It takes some getting used to. It has some peccadillos which you have to figure out. One, for example, is setting the time. It would never keep when I set it. Another is the miles window. Rather than miles or kilometers it is yards and meters.

It's pretty easy to use and a fun idea

AW, Amazon

  • Summary: It's pretty easy to use and a fun idea, and does what it says it does. But the user guides and software are pathetic. Ultimately, trying to import the tracks I recorded failed miserably, even after I uninstalled and reinstalled the software repeatedly, and the memory got erased. The help function is useless. I got an error message from the beginning saying initialization failed, and there was no guidance anywhere about it. The user interface is very primitive.

#rd bad unit or hopeless technology!

Frankn, Amazon

  • Summary: This is the second model that I have tried. First, the yardage/mileage is right on. I tested it on a measured 100yard range. Now for the sad part. The compass, even after several figure 8's to calibrate, seemed to want to point east rather than north. The backtrack to a marked location worked sometimes, but sometimes it was off by 90 to 180 degrees. Totally unreliable. I tried to contact Bushnell customer service by their E Mail address, but they never answered.

Very limited usefulness

DiMar, Amazon

  • Summary: It probably works OK for the applications they're obviously pushing -- hikes in the woods, fishing trips in the back country, etc. But it's no good at all around cars, buildings, metal objects, etc. The GPS reading for the distance back to your starting location is accurate, but the arrow (even with lots of "calibration") is just as likely to send you off in the wrong direction as head you back to where you're trying to go.

not the best item to buy

Tom from Virginia, Amazon

  • Summary: If you want accuracy....not the best item to buy. Many times it takes 20 or more minutes to get satelite readings. And changing batteries is a pain as the back is not too easy to remove. I guess for the money it's ok......but for the serious hunter spend the extra money and go Garmin or Magellen.

Does not work as good as I expected

  • Summary: Does not work as good as I expected, does not always record a track & something shows where you have not been, but the GPS works good for checking vehicle speed.

Run away as fast as you can.

BradLey, Amazon

  • Summary: This thing will get you killed if you get lost easily. When it would finally track down a satellite the compass would not hold north. First pointed NE, a minute later NW and than due west. Did not matter what we did, could not find north. Most of the time we would turn on the unit in a large open area and it could not find a satellite. I would give this zero stars if I could.
