I just received and tested the Bushnell BackTrack 5 points.
Very easy to configure and to use. Really satisfied with it.
Why not 5 stars ?
Just due to the fact that the power turns off automatically after 5 minutes.
So if you're using your BackTrack and you're more than 5 minutes away from the destination you would like to go back, you've always to press a key within 5 minutes or the BackTrack will turn off.
In my opinion the turn off time should also be part of the basic configuration like time,temperature,distance,etc.

I read all the reviews, some bad, some good. I went ahead and bought one anyway. Yeah, it's the hardhead syndrome. Big mistake. If you have 5 minutes of time to calibrate the device every time you leave your car and have another 5 minutes to stand at the exit of the store to calibrate the unit, then by all means, this item is for you. And don't forget the stares you will get from other people while flying your "airplane" or walking in a big circle.
However, if you don't want to look foolish standing next to your car, flying the unit in great looping figure eights (just like a child pretending to fly his toy airplane) and flipping in over and over, then walking in a big circle to calibrate it, then pass on this thing. Oh yeah, and there is no guarantee that your calibration worked. You may have to repeat all the tips again and again (straight from the video from their website).
It takes a long time to find the satelites, then needs calibrated every time you turn it on. And did I mention that it turns itself off after 5 minutes. So guess what? That's right, another calibration cycle.
I have a Magellan Meridian Color GPS handheld and I have never had to calibrate the compass. It knows what is North and South every time. I also have 2 boat sonars and a Navigation unit for my truck with built in GPS and I have never had to calibrate them.
So, I guess what I'm telling you is: The Bushnell company really fell flat on their face with this one.
Save your money for something worth while. I sent mine back for a refund.
Nuff said.

The big brown truck brought me a new Bushnell Backtrack Point>5 GPS Friday afternoon. It locks up (finds its location) fast, has a simple interface, and useful data screens. I was horrified with the accuracy of the built in digital compass. After carefully following the calibration instructions several times I pretty much decided the thing was worthless for getting a reasonably accurate vector back to a stored point or a usable bearing on a landmark. Next I went to the web site and looked at the online manual, which was just a copy of minimalist 9 page brochure which came with the unit. I had just about decided to send the thing back when I stumbled onto Bushnell's "BackTrack Digital Compass Calibration Tips" video. By combining all three techniques demonstrated in the video I was able to get useful accuracy from the compass / trackback arrow. I haven't sat on or dropped my unit yet so I can't say how robust this thing is going to turn out to be, but for the time being I plan to leave my older/larger/heavier GPS in the truck and use the BackTrack to find my way around in the field.

Shuts off automatically every 5 minutes. Bushnells web video tells you to do 'figure 8s', 'tumble' the unit (roll over and over), and walk around in circles every time this item powers up. If you wish to do this every 5 minutes, then by all means, this is the unit for you. Even after jumping through all of Bushnells hoops, unit still gets 'confused' easily, and in general points 90 degrees away from your intended path. Returned the item, went with Garmin.

The good-Good features and decent price.
Once you calibrate ( see below ) the compass, it is reliable.

The bad-
Not liking the fact I have to do the "figure 8" motion to calibrate the compass every time. If you forget to do so, the compass is not reliable.
ALSO, the small METAL clip...remove it and use a leather shoelace to secure. Compass cannot have metal near it or it messes it up. IF you keep that clip on it on AND forget to calibrate your compass....your lost.

A very user friendly item. I have tried it and like it so far. I plan on using it for birdhunting with my dog. Anyone who birhunts new coverts knows how easy it is to get turned around while hunting with your favorite bird dog. I am thinking this will take the guess work out of where we parked the truck. The problem i had was calibrating the compass but one quick call to bushnell got me on track.The figure eight's they descirbe in the directions should be done more like a kid flying a toy plane. So far so good !

The last few years I have gone to the L.A. County Fair, we could not find our car in the parking lot. The lot is huge and there are no lights. It is VERY dark. I'm not the only one - there are people walking all over the place looking for their car. When I saw this product on Amazon (on sale) I thought it was perfect for me. I have tested it many times over the last month in parking lots and it has worked perfectly for me every time. It is, however, not perfect. First, it always takes about 1 minute to find the satellite when you first mark your spot. That is not convenient. If it is raining it is very inconvenient. Also, it is important to walk around in a figure 8 a couple of times to calibrate the internal compass so that it works more precisely, so I always look around to make sure there are no people around to stare at me because it's somewhat embarrasing. BUT, once I mark the original spot it works flawlessly from then on. Also, at least for me, once I leave to go back to my car it seems to find the satellite more quickly than when I first turned it on to mark the spot. The GPS unit in my car finds a satellite within 5 seconds - I don't know why this product takes so long to lock in on one. I love the fact that you can mark up to 5 spots, plus it shows you in yards how far your marked target is as you're walking. It also has a clock, temperature, shows the elevation of your location, and has a compass. If this item found the satellite more quickly I would give it 5 stars. I have only used it in urban areas of Southern California, so I don't know how well it would work while camping somewhere, but I did not buy it for that reason.Read more ›
