Why worry about getting lost in the woods when the Bushnell BackTrack D-Tour Personal GPS Tracking Device (Green) is a personal location finder and digital compass utilizing GPS technology that lets you know where you are all the time. The D-Tour stores up to five locations - just mark it and forget it until it's time to return. At the end of the hike, select your location and the BackTrack D-Tour displays direction and distance in either yards/miles or meters/kilometers. Use it to find your car in a crowded parking lot, your tree stand, secret fishing spot, trailhead, campsite or the rendezvous place with your group. Self-calibrating digital compass, military or civilian time, Fahrenheit or Celsius temperature, altitude and latitude/longitude coordinates are all built in features.
The D-Tour uploads 48 hours worth of data to a Windows PC XP SP1 or later or a MAC 10.4.9 or later, to analyze your trip or to re-live the experience another time, alone or with friends. The software and USB cable is included and the recordings can be overlaid onto Google maps. Extremely compact and light at just 6 ounces this GPS personal location finder stows conveniently in your pocket, pack or purse. The BackTrack D-Tour GPS is powered by 3 user-supplied AAA batteries.

Suitable only for open field direction guiding, not for city adventure. It picks up GPS signals rather slower than the Iphone and have to wait much longer to get GPS connection. This is not a " Tracking " but rather a " Pointing " device, then an Iphone with good free applications can provide more detailed visual functions,e.g. trail marking, spot following, direction pointing, GPS locations, etc. I will try it next month in Death Valley to see IF this device can get better GPS connection than Iphone dose, otherwise it can be totally replaced by Iphone or other smartphones
