Summary: I must confess that I am accustomed to higher end Garmin handhelds costing much more so it's not a fair comparison. Still, I am disappointed. It's slow to start-up and lock on and when walking around it's wildly varying pointer does not instill confidence. I keep it clipped to my hunting backpack and use it as a plan B but I have never developed a confidence in it's ability to get me home.
Summary: I recently purchased a Back Track at a big box store. I really wanted to like it, but it was unreliable. Like another reviewer noted, my marked locations drifted significantly (30 to 50 yards) over short periods of time. This Back Track - at least the one I had - would not be useful to mark the location of a car in the mall parking lot, and could be downright dangerous to use while hiking or camping.
Summary: This thing sounds great and maybe I'll get it to work better in the woods, but in a parking lot this thing is a bit of a joke. It doesn't point north, it doesn't point to the waypoints most of the time, BUT the distance does accurately decrease as you move closer to the target. I need this in case I get lost while hunting. Need to get back to the truck. I think the distance part will help. I have heard that cars and buildings may be throwing this off.
