Bushnell Partners With Bear Grylls on New GPS Line

Bushnell partners up with Bear Grylls Ventures to release the Bear Grylls edition BackTrack and BackTrack D-Tour GPS systems.

Bushnell and Bear Grylls Ventures have partnered up to produce a simple line of GPS devices for outdoorsmen. The Bear Grylls edition BackTrack and BackTrack D-Tour GPS systems are designed to be easy-to-use survival tools.

The BackTrack features both GPS technology and a digital compass in one simple interface. Users can mark up to three locations, providing simple distance and direction to the saved locations with the push of a button. The BackTrack features a backlit display and 16-18 hours of operation on one set of AAA batteries.

The BackTrack D-Tour can store up to five locations to help users track their way back, recording up to 48 hours of data. This GPS device features a self-calibrating digital compass and also provides the time, temperature, altitude and latitude/longitude readings, and a trail map to help retrace routes. The D-Tour includes the ability to upload trip data into a PC or Mac with its free software application.

The Bear Grylls edition BackTrack has a suggested retail price of $79.99, and $119.99 for the BackTrack D-Tour.

This sounds like a wonderful idea, but the first and second generations of these units were not well received by outdoorsmen. I really like the idea of a simple unit; are there any positive reviews of actual field use?
