Never Get Lost Again

At least that’s what the folks over at Bushnell are telling us. They’ve recently introduced a new GPS device called the Bushnell BackTrack.

Instead of all the bells and whistles you find on other GPS units, the Bushnell BackTrack takes a minimalist approach. No color touch screens, mapping software, or virtual games to deal with. The genius of the BackTrack is in its simplicity and ease of use.

The product basically has two functions. Primarily, the BackTrack is a personal location finder. It also has a self calibrating digital compass.

You can use the BackTrack to get back to the trailhead or back to your car. Simply mark your location before heading out, and BackTrack will help you get back to the trailhead, your campsite, or even back to your car at the mall or the stadium parking lot.

The BackTrack uses a high sensitivity SiRF Star III GPS receiver and is weather resistant. Its compact size also makes it easy store in your pocket or attach to a lanyard. If you would like to see more product information, please click here.
