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: 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: 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: 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.
Summary: I anticipated using the Back Track frequently, but to date it has not worked well for me. I noticed when I initally started using it that I could not connect to a satellite at my home. I was able to connect away from home but was not able to use the device to guide me back to my car in a parking lot.
In most cases, it couldn't find the satellite and didn't work.

Summary: I purchased the Bushnell GPS so we could find our way back to our starting point when we were walking while on vacation. It worked when I tested it in our home town, but was not able to find the satellite when I really needed it when we were vacationing in Aruba and later in St Petersburg Fl. Since it won't work in the situations where I need it the most, it is totally worthless to me. I am extremely disappointed and would strongly recommend against buying this product.
Summary: It is a very simple to use product that would have been great for me if it worked properly. I took it out hunting couple of times to get used to it. In these cases I marked the place I wanted to come out, then drove a couple miles down the road and walked in. As I came closer (about 3/4 to 1/2 mile) to the marked spot I checked several times.
