Warnings and Notices
GPS System & Location Accuracy Notice:
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the government of the United States, which is solely responsible for its accuracy and
maintenance. The system is subject to changes which could affect the accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment. The inherent nature
of the GPS system itself limits the accuracy of the distance indicated on the BackTrack’s display to within about ±3~5 meters (or yards) of
the actual marked location.
This device is intended as a supplemental handheld navigation aide only. The user assumes all responsibility associated with the use of this
product. It must not be used for any purpose requiring precise measurement of location, direction, distance, velocity or topography. This
device should not be used for any aircraft navigation applications.
Vehicular Use Notice:

Do not use this product while driving. An accident can result in property damage, injury or death if the operator fails to practice prudent
