OVERLAND PARK, Kan., June 6, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bushnell Outdoor Products redefined the personal GPS market with the introduction of the original BackTrack in 2008, providing consumers with the simplest, most cost-effective GPS device on the market. Bushnell has continued to innovate with subsequent BackTrack products, while remaining committed to providing the simplest personal GPS devices. The BackTrack D-TOUR continues that rich tradition, while giving users the unique ability to record, track and share adventures.
It is easier than ever to record your track and find your way back thanks to the BackTrack D-TOUR. With the ability to store up to five locations, provide simple distance and direction for each waypoint, and easily record and upload 48 hours worth of data to a PC or Mac, the D-TOUR is a must-have for the outdoor adventurer. In addition to a self-calibrating digital compass, the device provides time, temperature, altitude and latitude/longitude readings.
Following each adventure, data captured by the D-TOUR can easily be uploaded to any PC or Mac. The free D-TOUR software application overlays the route on Google Maps while providing the length and time of the trip and elevation and temperature readings. Once the data is uploaded, it can be easily saved or shared with friends via email or social networks.
At just six ounces, the compact device can be easily tucked away in a pack or pocket, and the backlit display makes it useful for every adventure. The BackTrack D-TOUR is available in green or red and includes a USB cable and quick-start guide. The suggested retail price is $119.99.
