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 device. This GPS is not accurate at all.... All I really needed and wanted was an arrow pointing me the direction I am supposed to go on a hike, etc....
I even read the directions (I hate reading the directions) and I still did not find ...

Summary: I was very unimpressed with this device. It was inaccurate with the actual mileage of the trails we were on. When I was complaining about it at the top of the mountain another hiker informed me that since it is linked to a satellite anytime you stop it tries to find you again and looks in all directions. This adds on to the distance tracker and you think you have gone further than you have actually gone. Not worth the money.
Summary: I bought this Back tracker this year for deer season. three of us in my hunting group purchased this same one. we all set out one morning to a spot where we wanted to end up at so we marked our trackers and then drove two miles from that location to make our way back through the woods to that exact location, so we split up and set out on our 4 hours hike back.

Summary: An absolutely worthless piece of equipment. Would not calibrate and hold a position any closer than thirty degrees. Unreliable, and if purchased for seriously locating your whereabouts, a complete failure!
Summary: I recently purchased a Back Track at a big box store. I really wanted to like it, but it was unreliable. Like another reviewer noted, my marked locations drifted significantly (30 to 50 yards) over short periods of time. This Back Track - at least the one I had - would not be useful to mark the location of a car in the mall parking lot, and could be downright dangerous to use while hiking or camping.
