The reTrace Lite (White) from Celestron is a hand held GPS and Digital Compass device which assists you to re-trace your steps thereby preventing becoming lost-in-the-woods or anywhere else. The reTrace devices are simple and easy to use. They run on 2 AAA batteries. The reTrace GPS locator can help find your lost car in a parking lot or tell you where you parked your car or bike. When hiking or running it can make sure that you can find your way back. It can help your children find their way home or locate and direct you to your camping spot, fishing spot, hotel, restaurant or any building in an unfamiliar city or location. It can guide the boat back to the harbor, dock or pier and many more uses. It is a very practical device.

The reTrace Lite stores up to 5 locations and can display the distance to those locations. It works anywhere in the world on only 2 user-supplied AAA batteries. There is a low battery indicator as well as a satellite locking icon to let you know when the GPS satellite is locked in. The longitude and latitude are displayed. The distance up to 999 miles and the azimuth in degrees are also available. The units of measure are changeable to yards, miles, meters or kilometers. The digital compass mode has directional arrows with 16 point markers in the 360° compass circle giving each pointer a range of 22.5°. The display shows the facing direction in degrees. There are five favorite 'Waypoint' icons for saving a location; personal, favorite, attractions, target and parking. All this comes in a convenient hand fitting, attractive and water resistant package.

          Comments about reTrace Lite (Green):

          I tried a simple test with it in the parking lot where I work. I set a waypoint where my car was parked and then proceded to walk around the building which is about a 0.6 mile walk. I tried to use the retrace to get back to my car and it was very inaccurate. Every few steps you took it would tell you to go in extremely different directions. I knew where the car was and yet it might tell me to go in the opposite direction or to go straight when I was supposed to turn. I experimented more and discovered that if you set it down where it is parallel to the ground that it will give you an accurate reading. This unit may get you back but you will have to be very careful to keep it parallel to the ground. I have a Garmin Fortrex 101 which is an older technology and it is extremely accurate no matter what position it is held in.
