More reliable and easier to use than the proverbial trail of breadcrumbs, the Brunton Get-Back GPS unit is the simplest way to find your way home after a day exploring the backcountry. Simply set the Get-Back when you’re leaving camp and forget about it. At the end of the day, it will point the direction home while giving the distance left to travel. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and weighing only 1.4-ounces, the Get Back stows easily in any pack, bag, or pocket. Store up to three waypoints to make navigating to several locations easy. Fully rechargeable, the Get-Back uses a 5-Volt USB port and can be charged directly from a laptop, the Brunton Inspire power storage unit, or the Brunton Solaris USB solar panel. The Get-Back runs for 12 hours on a single charge. Built to be both rugged and reliable, the Get-Back is fully waterproof and accurate to within 12 feet.
