User-friendly Interface -

Georeferenced Satellite Images -
When you download a satellite photo to your Bushnell GPS, it`s instantly georeferenced to the satellite network for navigation. This means the image is calibrated to adjust to your heading and location to display an accurate representation of the ground you`re exploring.
For example: if you`re headed south facing a stand of pines, you can look down at your Bushnell GPS and the satallite image or aerial photo and directional compass will also display you`re headed south and facing the stand of pines. This is called TruView navigation. By referencing the landmarks around you to those on your LCD, you can explore new territory with the competence of someone who`s trekked the land for years.
Unlike maps, which portray the landscape with generalized symbols and colors, satellite photography reflects the terrain as it exists in nature. Buildings, bridges, roads, urban and rural areas, and other manmade features are shown as they were at the time of photography.
Georeferenced satellite images also give you an accurate portrayal of relative distance when viewing your position in relation to waypoints and visible landmarks. This means, if you know you`ve traveled nearly a mile from your treestand, and your next stopping point appears to be of equal distance away on your LCD, you can estimate you`re approximately a mile from your destination. It`s fast, simple and the most efficient way to see the country.
You can plan your adventure from your home computer: View the ground you`ll be exploring, mark waypoints and plot your course. It will save you time in the field and give you an intimate knowledge of the land before you ever set foot on it. When you`re on the move, you can reference the landmarks around you to what appears on your LCD screen. It`s the easiest way to navigate, and no other GPS on the market gives you this capability.
Bushnell`s site is the only source for satellite photography for your Bushnell GPS. This ensures every image available for download is the highest quality and is compatible with your unit. No surprises. Just the most efficient handheld navigation system on the market - from the industry`s leader in sports optics and outdoor technology, Bushnell.
