rated 5 of 5 stars Randy: Which BackTrack do you have? I had the same issue on the original until I learned that all digital compasses need to be calibrated, my Suunto is the same way. I flipped it in the air a couple of times instead of following the video I found on the website and it was accurate from then on, unless I moved a timezone or two away then had to do it again.  I just bought the new BackTrack Point5 and it is great.  Still very simple, but adds temp, time, altitude and a pretty cool digital compass… Full review


rated 0.5 of 5 stars Purchased one in Jan 11 - it could not point North or anywhere consistently. So I returned it for a new one...It was no better. It frequently would point about 160 to 180 degrees in the WRONG direction.  Anyone who relies on this for getting out of the woods or snow country is a dead man. Bushnell needs to recall these before they result in a needless death (and yes I am an experienced with the various normal issues of GPS). Too bad too, because the concept is a great one.I am not sure why they… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars I am what you would call a non-techie. I know nothing about gadgets and gizmos so I prefer simple electronics. This gadget is what I would call simple. It gets you from point A to point B just by telling you how far away you are. Simple as it gets. I had to calibrate each time I started it up, per the manual by turning it in circles a few times, but worked like a charm. Decent price, could use some altering on the back piece. Batteries were hard to get to and could use some easier pieces to get… Full review

ONIX 400

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I bought an Onix 400 at a great price, but the Bushnell map system is worthless. They use a proprietary .pho map file and their web site takes days to download just a small area.  There is no product support for the Onix as it has been discontinued.  Don't waste your money, bad GPS at any price.

rated 3 of 5 stars I got my Backtrack on sale for $30, which seems to be a very good price. It's probably worth $30, but if I'd paid the $99 sticker price I'd be upset. Summary: Good enough for its intended purchase, but don't trust "spot" readings. Use it while moving (walking, or in a car) and "average" the results mentally. Discussion: The direction to something (North, your car, your house, whatever) is often 45 degrees off. When you are moving, the "direction to go" keeps jumping around, but generally in sort… Full review
