Best New GPS: Bushnell Backtrack D-Tour
Before my spinal cord injury I spent a lot of time in the woods, and had one of the first GPS units. made by Garmin. It was a little complicated and had difficulty finding satellites at times.
I did not think I needed a GPS again because of my limited mobility in my everyday wheelchair . But now that I am using my Action TrackChair, I plan on picking up this new GPS from Bushnell. Check it out for yourself here
It received great reviews from Field & Stream Magazine and is listed as the best GPS in 2011 . This is what they have to say:
If you want basic navigation and cool route functions but don’t want to spend a fortune or read a manual, the BackTrack D-Tour GPS is the unit for you. It can mark up to five locations—camp, the trailhead, an elk wallow, a clearing, or a rendezvous point—and guide you back to any of them, pointing the direction and giving the distance left to go. Hit the Trip button as you begin your hunt, and the D-Tour will log up to 24 hours of data including distance, speed, elevation, and temperature.
Plug it into your PC or Mac with a free downloadable app, and with a single button click, it will display your path on Google Maps while graphing speed, elevation, temperature, or distance. Just four buttons do everything on this -diminutive unit. —Jock Ellio
