This Bushnell GPS Personal Locator can work both as a GPS locator and a digital compass. It's about the size of a compass but very lightweight. The one I have is bright orange, a color I'd recommend to make it easy to find.

Out of the package, it's easy to use. Take it outside and give it time to find a satellite signal. If you own a GPS unit of any kind, you know it may take a few minutes. From there, press a button to mark your spot. There are three locations we can mark: home, car or other. Of course, we may substitute anything for our home or car, but three locations is the most it will hold in memory.

Turn it off, walk away. When you want to find your way back, turn it on and follow the arrow. It's that simple.

How well does it work? I started out by marking my house and walking around the block. The home arrow would be a little off the direction I would normally walk. Being constrained by roads and sidewalks, I could only go in the general direction of the arrow, but I got home, nevertheless. I faced the same problems in a parking lot. Cars were my obstacles, so I couldn't quite follow the arrow, and that arrow did seem a little off at times, but I could follow the general direction of the arrow and find my car.

So, I wondered if I was hiking off a trail and got completely lost, would I be able to find my way back? Is this arrow being "slightly off" a problem? Having no desire to actually get lost, I went to a large park with an open field, where my walk would not be impeded by sidewalks, roads and cars. I marked my car, went to the other side of the park and resolved to follow that arrow blindly. I walked and walked, despite my internal protestations that this was not a straight path, that the locator was taking me away from my car. But, yes, there it was! When all was said and done, I ended up next to my car. Looking back, it was as straight a path as could be, but trees and grass and hills gave me the illusion when I was walking that the arrow was a few degrees off. Wow.

After my little experiments, I do trust my Backtrack. This personal locator will be especially useful in the backcountry on poorly marked trails. It's coming with me on all my future camping trips.

HASH(0x9d6056e4) étoiles sur 5 Simplicity itself 2 mai 2012

This is a handy device for returning to marked locations.

I had this up and running within seconds of receiving it and inserting two AAA batteries (which are not included) and hitting the power button (there are only two buttons on this unit).

The device took 2 minutes and 51 seconds for the satellite icon to stop flashing, which indicated that the unit knew its location. At this point, I hit the "mark". There are apparently three icons: house, car, and star. You can cycle through them and mark three points. When you're on each icon, an arrow with a heading to the marked spot and distance are displayed.

For the unit to know your direction, it needs to be moved in a line. So if you select a marked spot, the arrow will not be correct until you start moving. This is not a problem, but something to be aware of. [Edit: Apparently I am mistaken and this device does have a real compass that doesn't rely on GPS. However I have had difficulty getting this to work as well as I'd like. I know where North is, and this thing really does seem to do better finding north if it's in motion. If you do move, the unit figures things out within 30 feet or so.]

The device is durable and extremely easy to use. There is a nice lock switch for the battery cover, but you need to make sure it's in place. Don't be shy and really shove it over. This isn't a complaint. I'm glad they designed it this way.

It's accurate enough, probably within ten meters, and gets great reception. I included a couple of photos (above) to show how easy it is to read the display.

The only problem is that you need to remember to mark your starting point before you get lost. I sure wish there was a way to input coordinates just in case you neglected to do this, but Bushnell opted for a simple interface and I think they succeeded.

It seems like a decent value if you explore areas often and just need something in case you get lost, and I would also use this to mark my car's location, though I find a cell phone more appropriate for that task.

Also, consider investing more money in a device like this: Bushnell 363500 Onix 350 GPS with sensors. Either you want the simplicity and ease of carry (on a neck lanyard) of this Backtrack unit, or you might prefer something more substantial, capable, and accordingly more expensive.

I am not too enamored with this device. First, it takes forever to get a signal, somewhere between 2 to 9 minutes. More than once it has taken so long that the device turned itself off before getting a signal. A lot of walking can happen while the device figures out where it is. Second, the directional arrow is not good at small movements - it has sixteen points in 360 degrees it stops on, which translates to 22.5 degrees for an arrow change. This makes the arrow frequently point a little to one side or the other of where you are returning to - not good for straight line walking. The displayed compass degrees seem to be more sensitive.

The clincher is inserting the batteries. The compartment is very tight, which would not be a problem if the housing were designed properly. However, the little notch for inserting the positive end of one of the batteries is on the wrong (negative) side where the spring compresses - obviously a manufacturing mistake. The result is that one of the batteries is very difficult to get in.

HASH(0x9d60572c) étoiles sur 5 Simple Handheld Navigator 26 avril 2012

This nifty little GPS device really is simply a supplemental handheld navigational guide. It is not a Garmin or other more complex GPS device. However, it can do a few handy things. It uses three icons to 'mark' your location (that is, you click the 'mark' button at a point you want to remember). If you want to select another point to 'mark', simply change the icon and 'mark' that (up to three). To be completely honest, I would never use this in backcountry to retrace my footsteps, but it can be very handy if you are parked in a huge parking lot and can't find your car after a game. When parked, 'mark' your position and go to the game. Afterwards, you will be directed to your car by arrow and distance. It is very simple to use, but somewhat limited.

It runs on two AAA batteries which also support a nightlite, but how long can they last? I can't say that it justifies it's price.

I already own a complicated and comprehensive GPS device, loaded with topo maps and advanced capabilities. I purchased the Backtrack G2, however, precisely because it doesn't have all those features. Most of the time when traveling (especially overseas), all I need to know is how to get back to my hotel or car after having wandered about for hours down winding streets in unfamiliar cities. The Backtrack G2 lets you mark a maximum of three locations (you must do so while at the location--you cannot enter coordinates or addresses). It then functions as a simple compass pointing you in the right direction. It will not show routes or paths--it will simply show you which way to go when you become hopelessly turned around.

That is all I wanted from the Backtrack G2, and that is what it does. I admit to having a lousy sense of direction, and on more than one occasion I've struggled to find my hotel in Amsterdam or gotten temporarily lost while hiking the hills and forests of Ireland and England. Yes, I have GPS apps on my iPhone, but while overseas, those require using roaming data which, without a data plan, is extraordinarily expensive. Plus, you cannot depend upon cell phone coverage in the hinterlands. The G2 is lightweight, relatively compact, and tells me which direction to go and how far away my destination is. Most of the time, that's all I need.

Complaints? Acquiring satellites takes longer than I would like, and acquisition is almost impossible in a narrow street hemmed in by tall buildings. You do need an open view of the sky, but of course, that can be said of any GPS. It could also be a little smaller. But, these are not deal-breakers. For its low cost, ease of use and relatively good battery life (I use rechargeable AAAs), if it keeps me from getting lost, I'm happy.
