This is the simplest portable GPS locating device available, ideal for finding your car after shopping or your hotel after a day of touring in an unfamiliar city. Simply push a button when you leave your car or a hotel and the device marks the location and points the way back. Half the size of a cell phone, the compact receiver fits easily on a keychain, in a pocket, or in a purse. Unlike typical GPS units that are highly complex, this one only has two buttons: one for switching your compass mode, another for setting up to three starting points. It uses an advanced GPS receiver chipset that provides a high degree of accuracy—within five yards—in urban canyons or heavily forested environments. It counts down the distance (in yards, miles, meters, or kilometers) as you approach your starting point and its self-calibrating digital compass displays your heading in degrees and indicates direction with an easy-to-read arrow. A backlight button illuminates the display for easy reading in low light conditions. It also remembers your waypoints when powered off. Best in outdoor conditions. Weather resistant. Requires two AAA batteries. 3 1/4" L x 2" W x 3/4" D. (2 oz.)

Security for Me
from Rochester, MN
I have no sense of direction; am going to England and Ireland next June and thought this would give me extra security if I go off by myself.It also helps me find my car in big parking lots.
The miniature GPS I was wishing for!
from Wilkes-Barre PA
The GPS Homing Device is very easy to use, nothing technical. The big arrow points you back to where you started and shows distance. I bought this for traveling to a foreign country. Very small and lightweight. Highly recommend if you don't want to get lost walking.
It's OK< with some Reservations
from Rego Park, NY
An interesting product, and it does work pretty well, even in the cavernous confines of New York City streets.The only drawback: it takes a good deal of time to get the device to find a satellite. While probably a very useful tool in the woods and other outdoor areas, it may prove to offer a smaller benefit in indoor areas such as a large indoor mall or parking complex.
A Life saver
from Fuquay Varina, NC
It lives in my pocket! When I am in a strange area, either in a strange city or the North Maine Woods, I mark my starting point. I then shut it off and enjoy what I'm doing without having to worry about being able to find my way back It always remembers your last saved point and even has two more if you want to find your way back to somewhere else besides your starting point.

In a small package, this is a particularlyuseful instrument, where orientationand distance measurement are prerequisites.

EASY TO USE, GPS DEVICE
from Houston area
So easy to use and figure out. I've tried other GPS devices but will ONLY be using this one. Would highly recommend this without any hesitation. We use it out in the woods for hunting, but can be used for other purposes.
