The Celestron reTrace Deluxe personal GPS locator is designed to help you retrace your steps in any situation – from finding your way back to your cabin or campsite in the woods to finding your lost car in a megamall parking lot. The reTrace Deluxe can be used when traveling, cycling, hiking, hunting, boating, fishing, camping, shopping, and more. It packs a lot of features into one small, rugged package and can provide you with a sense of security, knowing you can find your way back to saved locations quickly and easily, no matter how far your travels take you (up to 999 miles from your starting point).
The Celestron reTrace Deluxe contains a digital compass, latitude/longitude display, altimeter, barometer, thermometer, digital clock, and GPS coordinate storage of your favorites spots. Simply mark your starting location at a trailhead or your favorite fishing spot and with the push of a button your reTrace Deluxe will display the saved location coordinates as well as point you in the correct direction to find your way back to that location. As you move in the indicated direction, the distance reading counts down how far you still need to go. It can also display a small trail monitor map that will show you the exact path you have take so you can retrace your steps or take a shortcut using the direction and distance to the starting point indicators.
You can mark up to twenty waypoints on your journey, with individual icons highlighting personal favorites, attractions, where you left your car or bike, restaurant, bus stops, hotels, shopping centers, etc. It displays the distance and direction to each waypoint so so can find your way back to them on your return journey.
The reTrace Deluxe is water resistant, rugged, and includes a soft storage pouch and carabiner clip for easy attachment to a backpack or belt loop. It is powered by two user-supplied AAA batteries and has a highly legible multipage LCD color display screen with a backlight for reading the screens in the dark. Using the supplied mini USB cable, you can download free software from Celestron that will let you connect your reTrace Deluxe travels to your computer (along with the timeline, temperature, altitude, and barometer readings from your trip) to overlay them on Google Maps to keep a permanent record of your travels. Its case is finished in white with a green trim stripe.
