Summary: I purchased this unit over a year ago for the purpose of tracking my hikes. Unfortunately, it shuts down in the woods. There is literature (not from Bushnell - they are silent on this issue) stating that the unit needs "clear air" to work. What?
Summary: The instructions are skimpy at best. You should plan on spending time doing trial and error to set temperature, time, etc.. The symbols on the buttons are indecipherable. And nowhere do the instructions tell you that you have to eject the device just like an iPod and not just pull the USB cord out...
Summary: One year ago I purchased a bushnell backtrack and was pleased with its performance. I primarily just wanted something to get me to my hunting spot and back to my truck and this unit worked fine.
Summary: I got this before last deer season and it worked the first few times out but then the directional arrow went crazy and points nowhere near north with the compass nor back to the way points I set.
Summary: i had the older one. so when it died (it was passed down from my grandfather) i knew what i wanted to buy from the begging. great product, sat alight pick up is quick and it has got me out of sticky situations
Summary: After product finally gets a "lock" on the sattelite and way points are set, the unit almost always moves their location by up to 100 yards, in an unpredictable direction. It doesn't help me find my car in a large parking lot.... maybe i got a lemon...
This product should come with an instruction booklet.

Summary: Product was in good shape, came in a timely fashion, but didn't come with instruction book. After a little while of playing around with it, I got it to work somewhat, but still wouldn't feel comfortable using it in the back-country, let alone a place that was foreign to me.
