Summary: i wanted somthing simple and quick to use .this product is it. it may not do it all, but it does what i need. unlike others i have, that you have to take the manual along, to know how to use it. this ones easy. i would recomend to friends. g.k.
Summary: This was a fantastic easy to use unit that I purchased for 3 autistic children in case they got lost. Overall they got the hang of it immediately and they were enthralled and entertained and engaged.
Summary: My husband bought the Backtrack to use when going hunting or ice fishing. He hoped this device would help him to retrace his steps and get out of the woods at night. It is easy to use BUT does not work. He has owned it less than a year and only used it a few times. He just returned from a weekend hunting trip and the Backtrack did not work. He turned it on a few times and immediately after it acquired satellites, it shut down. This happened every time.
Summary: We already own a mapping system, but this is a simpler, pocket-sized directional device. It's perfect for finding the way home while hiking, walking, or just finding your car in a large parking lot.
Summary: Well, we haven't fully tested it yet, but it seems to a good buy. It was bigger than I expected, but my husband pointed out that it made for a larger display. I tried buying it from Orvis & Eddie Bauer for Xmas at way more $, but they were continuously out of stock. Amazon had it for way less and even though Ihe didn't until a few days after Xmas - big deal.
Summary: Easy to use, poorly written manual, The catch is once you upload a Trail to your computer, it will stay on the GPS until a new one is started. Not a problem just not in the documents. Over all It easy to use, has a better receiver under the trees then my Garmin. Recommended!!
Great Unit But Plan to Spend Time to Learn How to Use it Properly

Summary: While it took a few tries to get the device to work as I wanted it to, I would recommend this GPS receiver to anyone who spends time hiking, running, biking or driving OHVs in remote areas. The "return to where you started" feature is easy to use and pretty accurate. The "mapping of your route" took a little time to figure out, but once you do, it works great. It is nice to be able to see things like elevation changes, distance traveled etc.
