Summary: This thing is horrible!! It serves me right to try to cheat on land navigation, but I wanted something that I could get a quick direction from. I tested it by marking the location of my car in the parking lot of a mall.
Summary: This is NOT a good product. I returned the original item for repair or replacement because it was completely inaccurate. The compass did not come anywhere near pointing north and the locator functions were useless.
Direction arrow for both compass and locator WAY OFF! Useless.

Summary: Compass and Backtrack direction arrow is WAY OFF! I compared direction against both Coleman compass and IPad Maps app (both Coleman and IPad were in agreement) but the Backtrack arrow was nowhere near what the other two showed.
Summary: Worse than awful. Ordered one, returned for a replacement just as bad. While accurately showing distance to marked locations both units' directional needle pointed randomly no matter how closely I followed the recommended "fixes". Bushnell should scratch their name off these.
The instructions on their web site are completely accurate and totally useless. I have had the device for several months ...

Summary: Used the device about 6 times. Will not reset any more. Their web site says to install the program and when you load the data into the program is will reset the device (pretty worthless if you are just outside of nowhere USA without a computing device).

Summary: After reading the poor reviews I still decided to purchase the bike mount and strap . It was the only device I could find on the market that would work with the Bushnell Back Track D-Tour. How bad could it be? Pretty bad! The rubber bushing bar clamp fits only one size handlebar.
Summary: That is where I would be if I depended on this device getting me back to camp. I am glad that I tried it out in town before relying on it in the woods. When I first got it I tried it in my yard and it seemed to be off in both direction and distance so I tried it at a greater distance.
Summary: I am not remotely impressed by this Bushnell Backtrack G2 device. I understand this is much less expensive than other GPS units with more functionality... Yet, due to the fact that there is nothing but a grayscale arrow pointing 'the direction' of your waypoint, I figured it could still be a decent...
Summary: Terrible when you make bring you back to where you started points in a completely different direction. Even did the figure 8 deal like the directions say. Should uve got a garmin to begin with
