Using Your Bushnell BackTrack
To mark the location (store it in the BackTrack's memory under your selected
button until the distance indication changes
to "0". It does not matter which direction you face when marking the location (as
a stored GPS location is just a point or "dot"). When you move away from that
location, an arrow points the way back to the location (general direction relative
to your current position), and the display shows your distance from the location.
You may now turn the BackTrack's power off by
ing down the
button, or proceed to another location you want to mark. Be sure to select a
different Location icon before marking this new spot, as
previously used Location icon selected will replace that position with your current
When you're ready to return to one of your previously marked locations, turn
the BackTrack back on (
button). The BackTrack will
remember the last mode and location you used, so if the last place you marked was
your car in a parking lot, the BackTrack will already be showing you the direction
and distance back to your car! If you want to return to a location other than the
last one you marked, just
button to select the Location
icon you used when you marked it earlier. To find your way back to the selected
location, simply move in the direction the arrow points and watch for the distance
to decrease-when you reach your destination, a full circle of arrows will be seen at
the outer edge of the display.
