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:
Bushnell is committed to the safe and responsible enjoyment of the outdoors.
Do not use this product while driving. An accident can result in property damage, injury or death if the operator fails to practice prudent
driving practices. It is the sole responsibility of the driver of any vehicle to operate the motor vehicle in a safe manner. Information from the
GPS unit can distract the operator of a motor vehicle. It is unsafe to operate the controls of the GPS unit while operating a motor vehicle.
If used in a motor vehicle, it must not be used by the operator of the motor vehicle. If it is used in a motor vehicle it must be mounted in a
manner such that it does not distract the operator, does not interfere with the operator’s field of view, and does not block or interfere with the
air bags or other safety mechanisms of the motor vehicle. Windshields and car windows with integrated metallic materials, such as defrosters,
or car window tinting films, can degrade GPS reception inside a car.
