Pretty good Its good fairly accurate, but if you carry it in your hand or pants pocket the motion you make with limbs seems to end up doubling the distance. Also can't figure out check the distance of way points after you finish your hike. Wish there were a manual to figure out the features especially editing my tracks etc. Also one of my three mile hikes into a 65 mile hike the recording went berserk. Lol
