This is the key-fob-sized GPS homing device that provides the easiest way to find your way back to a parked car or hotel. Pushing the "mark" button before you leave saves your current location and when it is time to return it displays a directional compass and the distance you need to travel. It uses an advanced GPS receiver chipset that is accurate to within five yards in cities or forested areas. It counts down the distance 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 on the backlit LCD. Powered by two AAA batteries (not included). 3 1/2" H x 3" W x 3/4" D. (5 oz.)

By Saint Nick
from North Pole
Can't change the units to metric.Zeroing the GPS can be 200+ yards out. Accuract was advertised at 3ft.Still trying to decide whether I can live with this, or to return it. Will retrieve it from my Christmas stocking on Dec 25th and re-evaluate.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: To change the units to metric, hold both the mark and mode/power buttons down when in location mode until you see the distance measurement change to "m".

This was the perfect gift for my daughter.
By Erin the hiking / shopper
My daughter uses the device to find her car at the complex she lives in. She loves to use it while hiking in remote areas.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I work at a factory that employs well over 35,000 people. You never park in the same place twice. This GPS unit takes all of the guess work out of remembering where you have parked.
Gps does not work A waste of money
By Ken lost in the parking lot
Does not function. What value is this product if it does not take you from a to b.
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: We apologize for your experience with this product. Please make sure you are in location mode and set to home, car or star location to mark a return location. Hold down the mark button until you see a 0 distance. When turned back on the unit should direct back to the last set location (or another marked location if selected). Please contact us at 1-800-321-1484 for assistance with returning.

Fantastic - no more lost car in the parking lot
By Carol the cook
from Knoxville Tn
Now I don't have to memorize where I am parking. I simply punch the locator when I lock the car. I just have to remember to lock the car now.
