Backtrack GPS Finder – the simple simon location finder


The Backtrack GPS Finder lets you quickly log a location at the press of a button and return there later through the beauty of GPS and an on-board digital compass thingy. Well that’s the technical term anyway. So really all it’s doing is giving you a fast way to geo-code a position – like say your car in a very large car park – so you can follow the arrow back to it again. Of course no GPS in the world is going to tell you whether it’s on level 2 or 12, so good luck with the multi-storey locations. £59.99 (complete with instructions on how to locate your wallet)

 The Backtrack GPS finder at first glance looks nothing more than a jumped up compass, but it does so much more. You can save up to three locations, like your car, your tent, a particular beauty spot that you want to be able to find again, and you’ll have no problem using the Backtrack to find them again, no matter where you are – and all you need to do is follow the arrow, and the gadget is small enough to plonk on your key-ring.


  • Just hope you haven't crossed a river before backtracking.

  • Looks like the thing that tracked the Dragon Balls.
