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. Going to greenland, planned on using it there, since the trails aren't marked well, but won't solely rely on it to get me back to where I started.
Summary: Sadly, three times after I used the item I sent it back to the "shop." I sent it back to Bushnell as it turned itself off after 10 min. Hopefully I will get it back soon and can try it out again.
Summary: Damn thing is perfect. First two times out on the return legs I was convinced its pointer was way wrong. It was bang on correct. I just don't believe you should place your faith 100% in a gadget when you're out beyond the black stump, but, boy, is it seductive--and humbling to be proven wrong.
Summary: Bought this for a trip to London. We were to do a bit of walking and I wanted to be able to find my way back to the hotel if I got lost. It worked well. I especially like the PC software that plots your route on a map. I have also used it for skiing. I wish one of the software options would automatically count the ski runs and total the vertical drop and distance skied. I am able to do this manually off the optional graph in the software.
Summary: The unit has never turned on. I was not too concerned at first as I have other (non Bushnell) units to use. After replacing the lithium batteries a second time, the unit still did not turn on or function. Checking the batteries with a multi-meter, all three bats were 1.7 volts. Finally having had enough fun trying to get the unit to operate, I logged on to Amazon only to find out that the window of return period has expired. All I wanted was what I paid for.
Summary: This thing is pretty cool. I've used mine for back packing and mountain biking. Great to get you out the same way you came in. Track speed, elevation change, tempature, distance. I read all of the reveiws and it seems that some people though this was like a Garmin. It isn't, it isn't supposed to be used as a garmin. It will not give you directions. It will get you back to base camp, your hunting spot, or back to your car.
Summary: I gave this as a gift and the person using it has really enjoyed it. This was my first purchase of a little travel GPS like this and I think for the price it is worth it but might go for a higher quality (price) one in future.
