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.
Summary: I purchased this device for 2 purposes: (1) as a navigational aid when accompanying family and friends on hunting or other outdoor outings and (2) tracking and sharing my regular hiking and bicycling expeditions. As a navigational aid the system is slow but reliable. In the clear it can take 2 to 3 min to get a GPS lock, under a canopy it can take 2 to 3 times that long.
Summary: I almost hate to slam this product because I like Bushnell.What is absolutely unacceptable with this is that the BackTrack does not backtrack at all.It should be called the gps direction pointer.Before I made this purchase I called the company and spoke to someone that was part of the testing team for this.I asked very directly,"does this device guide you back via the path that you just traveled".I was told yes it does,wrong, it does not.He talked about the "breadcrumbs"...
unit was not worth the money it cost To Bad great idea in a cheap package !

Summary: This unit is slow to connect to a satelite. The manual is hard to understand and proceedures are not well defined. The buttons are stiff and hard to get to next screen. The download program with maps is great but if you can't get the unit to start a trip then the cool software doesn't do you any good. Was not worth the money !!
