Summary: Although the unit works when it successfully captures a satellite signal this can be very irregular the unit is very undependable and can result in your becoming disoriented unless you back it up with another point of reference. The battery power is drained very quickly and you no doubt need lithium batteries to assure use. The controls and design is somewhat clumsy forcing a user to fumble with it trying to find a correct true position.
A very dependable and necessary item for the outdoors person.

Summary: I've owned one of these for a few years and ordered one for my brother just recently, we are both avid deer hunters and not that technologically advanced, so this device is just what we needed, easy to use and very dependable to get you back to the truck, find your tree stand or find a favorite spot. Works with well in upstate NY, Adirondack Mountains.
Summary: What a great, rugged D-Tour GPS device! Easy to read and user friendly! Small enough and light weight enough not to be in the way and also the right size to make reading easy! I recommend this tool to the outdoors man.
Summary: I tried and tried to get the Bushnell BackTrack G2 Hand Held GPS to work with no luck. My wife did get it to work one time. Everytime I tried to backtrack the thing would go back to the start menu. Maybe defective, I don't know. Returned it to the store.
Summary: Not much else can be said. This unit worked maybe 1 out of 10 times, even when I turned it on in a field..no trees or obstructions around...no clouds in the sky...and it still failed to point me in the correct direction. I even put high quality batteries in the unit hoping that was the problem...but alas...it wasn't. I made the mistake of going deep into a woods on a hunting excursion.
Summary: I was able to get a signal indoors, and able to find my car easily. If you don't want to mess with a full on GPS, or don't want to spend the money, this is perfect. It's rugged, and all of the features work well. It's much larger than the pictures show so it's also easy to read, yet it's very light weight.
