Anyone that knows me knows that I have absolutely no sense of direction. I believe that I can continue having no sense of direction just as long as I have the Bushnell BackTrack D-Tour. This personal GPS is cheaply priced (around $100-125) and provides buyers with a way out of any geographical trouble that they may be in. There are other low cost handheld gps available in the market today that are proven to last long and reliable. According to Greg Roberts, an author from GeoSettr: “the use of traditional maps never goes out of date; however, having access to a handheld GPS device seems like a good idea when it comes to exploring unknown places.”-

The BackTrack D-Tour allows individuals to program in five different points (perhaps where a car or campsite is) and will direct back to each using a digital compass. The different paths that are taken are contained with a log, which can then be uploaded as a sort of bragging tool to social media or email (check the included guide for a full listing of the different functions that the D-Tour has). The BackTrack D-Tour works off of 3 AAA batteries with a considerable life extracted from them; there will be little chance that the GPS goes dead when you need it.

There are a number of different functions that have also been included with the BackTrack D-Tour; there is a clock, thermometer, and even an altimeter that is contained within. This is not the most technologically advanced product that is on the market, but Bushnell has not meant it to be. Rather, the BackTrack D-Tour is for those that just wish to get back to a location in the most simple way possible. The GPS can stay in your car while the BackTrack D-Tour will undoubtedly find a home in your camping bag. This should be purchased by anyone that likes to camp, walks or jogs, or just wishes to see where they end up going on a regular basis.
