The distance works more or less

  • Summary: This thing sounds great and maybe I'll get it to work better in the woods, but in a parking lot this thing is a bit of a joke. It doesn't point north, it doesn't point to the waypoints most of the time, BUT the distance does accurately decrease as you move closer to the target.

Keep your expectations low.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 May 2014
  • Summary: The instructions are skimpy at best. You should plan on spending time doing trial and error to set temperature, time, etc.. The symbols on the buttons are indecipherable. And nowhere do the instructions tell you that you have to eject the device just like an iPod and not just pull the USB cord out...

Not sure if defective or junk

Dane, Amazon

  • 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.

Not accurate

Ast92111, Amazon
14 September 2013
  • Summary: I ordered this unit in the hopes of backtracking back to my home camp while offroading. First, the GPS takes forever to lock onto a satellite signal anytime you are somewhere new. Second the GPS was very inaccurate. It kept pointing to a different location. Just not what I was expecting.

the altitude function and the warranty repair policy are garbage

pba, Amazon
24 August 2012
  • Summary: we bought this for use in golf course rating at the recommendation of the USGA. The main function we needed was the altitude measurement, since one part of the rating requires measurement of the altitude change on each hole and during the path of that hole.

Easy to use and helpful device

Burdz, Amazon
1 June 2012
  • Summary: With a little easy practice, this unit is a great help with relocating your vehicle, cabin or camping area after hiking. When you arrive home, it's very simple to download the info to your computer and bring up a map, satellite or road, to see where you've been, how far you've traveled, altitude,...

Some serious problems...

L. F. Smith, Amazon
28 April 2012
  • Summary: The BackTrack Original G2 GPS Personal Locator and Digital Compass is a great concept, and it has some very attractive features. It's reasonably priced, very simple to operate, extremely easy to read in all lighting conditions, and very compact.
