I have the ReTrace Deluxe. It looks like the only software that will work with it is Their own program. You can download it from the Celestron site. I have Windows 7 and had to run in Compatibility Mode to get it to work. The buttons across the top of page (load POI, Save POI, etc...) are blacked out but STILL WORK if you know where to click on the screen. I ran the program first and it would not connect to my ReTrace Deluxe. I then noted where the buttons on the screen are that I needed. I ran in compatibility mode and the program works if you know where to press on the screen to load tracks, etc.... you may use marker to mark your screen when you first run the program to help later...

I bought the reTrace deluxe blue several months ago and decided to start it today. Downloaded the manual and began to follow procedures.
Batteries installed OK.
Turn on OK.
Set time for Eastern instead of GMT and the stuff hit the fan. the instructions are so confusing and incomplete.
I set waypoints and could not return to compass. Followed the manual and it did not respond to the command instructed.
I am waiting for Support to write back...
Maybe I'll call California to get someone to walk me through.
If I cannot make it work I want my money back!

24 hours after putting in new varta batteries into the new retrace deluxe they were totally empty, although I only did the settings of time, meter and celsius degree and tried (five or six times) to get a satellite signal.(It was +2°Celsius, so not too cold for the batteries!) The acquiring time always was longer than 5 minutes, later in the car it was not able to get any signal, and when at least I got the coordinates of my place, they soon faded away again. Now, maybe because of changing batteries, my settings are gone.
Got no answer when e-mailing on the support internet page of celestron.
No possibility of software download for MAC-users!!!
No use for real outdoor activities with that operation duration and problems of receiving. My rating: 0 Stars

Great item but. When using breadcrumb trail mode, if you run out of battery power or shut off gps you can't save the trail.
