Summary: Bought this item brand new and it would not calibrate to North after following the instructions. This is one step up from a toy. Spend the money and buy a quality GPS! I am regretting I didn't.
Summary: From the description, it seemed just the ticket for back tracking....but, the "quick start guide" omitted any of the many details and necessary instruction both for controls and programs I never intended to use, and referred me to the Bushnell website for a comprehensive "user's guide." After going to the website, Bushel said no manual was available, and i should use the quick start guide...
Summary: I have tried this device a half-dozen times and the only place it will connect to a satellite and function in the manner intended is if I am in the middle of a 20 acre open field. That doesn't help me much if I am in heavy woods following my bird dog or in the Pennsylvania forests tracking a deer. It's coming back to you, if it doesn't lose itself in the mail.

Summary: I bought this for hiking, so that when I leave the car I can mark the spot and then if I need it I can have it point me in the right general direction and see how far away I am. I gave this a very easy test. I went hiking out at a lake that had wide open skies: no tall mountains, no tree cover, no buildings, no power lines. It seemed to more or less get the distance right. The direction was a complete mess. It consistently pointed me away from the place I started.
Concept great, unfortunately, a really bad product

Summary: A simple GPS with a variety of additional features. Great idea-if it worked as stated. It doesn't. The first unit I ordered arrived with a defective USB cable. The altimeter was off by 50-90 feet-which, since altitude requires talking to satellites, means that other calculations made by the GPS could be erroneous as well. The unit froze when disconnected from the Hunt Track software, necessitating pulling a battery to get the thing to turn off.
Summary: I just wanted a small and simple device that would track where I hike and I thought it would be nice if it could tell me the temp and alt while hiking. This one does do that, but has major flaws! First of all it's not very precise. When hike back over the same trail the two lines can be very far off. Sometimes on the map you can see where the trail is and the line does not follow it. This is the only GPS tracker I have owned, so I don't know how common that is.
Not worth it- you probably can use you phone for what this thing does.

Summary: This device does not do basic things that you would expect it to do. It says it has the ability to mark 5 points but you can only use these 5 point to go find your car or other things- you can't load the points on your computer to find your exact spots- the only way to do that is to get a pencil and paper and write down the points while you are on the road. In addition, it allows you to mark just 1 trip.
Summary: This product will get you lost. Only accurate about 70% of the time. I tried it for the first time and ended up the opposite direction I wanted to go. Takes to long to lock onto satellites . Somewhere in the Southeast Texas woods mine is laying because I threw it as far as I could !
