Summary: It's pretty easy to use and a fun idea, and does what it says it does. But the user guides and software are pathetic. Ultimately, trying to import the tracks I recorded failed miserably, even after I uninstalled and reinstalled the software repeatedly, and the memory got erased.
Summary: How can you tell your best friend to location of "that best" fishing spot? Tell him (her) the precise GPS coordinates. How does he/she know if they are there yet? This device tells them their current location. They will know if they need to go north or south, east or west, until reaching that spot.
Summary: This is the second model that I have tried. First, the yardage/mileage is right on. I tested it on a measured 100yard range. Now for the sad part. The compass, even after several figure 8's to calibrate, seemed to want to point east rather than north.
Summary: It probably works OK for the applications they're obviously pushing -- hikes in the woods, fishing trips in the back country, etc. But it's no good at all around cars, buildings, metal objects, etc.
Summary: If you want accuracy....not the best item to buy. Many times it takes 20 or more minutes to get satelite readings. And changing batteries is a pain as the back is not too easy to remove. I guess for the money it's ok......but for the serious hunter spend the extra money and go Garmin or Magellen.
Summary: This thing will get you killed if you get lost easily. When it would finally track down a satellite the compass would not hold north. First pointed NE, a minute later NW and than due west. Did not matter what we did, could not find north.
Summary: I bough this as a backup/emergency GPS for 2 hiking trips in UK. My main GPS is actually my phone, Samsung S4. So, I didn't want to spend too much money a backup GPS. Bushnell BackTrack fits that requirement. I lived in US, northeast coast, where I received the product and tested.
