New Bushnell Backtrack won't turn on.


I have the same problem with my Backtrack. I unlock back battery cover, unscrew some screws. Then I take the screen, check connection - it's ok. Then I try to close power switch with screwdriver. It started, but doesnt worked. There are some symbols on the screen. It's all I can do. My BackTrack still won't worked. For comments: greenspot@mail.ru

A person walks 25.degree north of east for 3.10 km.How far would she have to walk due north and due east to arrive at the same location?


3.10 km times sine of 25 degrees is about 1.31 km.
3.10 km times cosine of 25 degrees is about 2.81 km.
The person would have to walk 1.31 km north and 2.81 km east.

Since you didn't specify the make and model of your calculator, I'm afraid I can't give you the keystroke sequences to calculate these results.

Compass mode does not point anywhere close to North...about 90 degrees off...


The instrument must have come in contact with a permanent magnet which has altered the polarity position of the floating magnetic needle in the instrument thus throwing it off course. However if the reading is consistent you may continue to use it by compensating it by 90 deg

New Bushnell Backtrack 3 points in the wrong direction most of the time by about 30 - 90 degrees. VERY inaccurate!


Try calibrating the compass by following the instructions in this video

How do i measure square feet ?


Multiply two sides of the lawn which are 90 degrees to one another.

For example, the north side is 50 feet and the east side is 40 feet.

50 x 40 = 2,000 square feet.

Trig and distance


Debs,

this is solved by starting with the SECOND leg of the flight considered as a triangle.

Find how far DUE east the plane travels (100 km x Cos10 = 83.9 km) using 10 degrees because that is how much is left of the 90 degree quadrent after subtracting the 80 degrres course direction.
Similarly find out how far DUE north the plane travels (100 km x Cos80 = 11 km).

Now get the total flight NORTH = 300 + 11 = 311
- and total EAST = 83.9

Finally, use Pythagoras theorem.to get the total DISTANCE:
square root of ( 311 squared + 83 squared ) = 321 km

Also the DIRECTION from its Tangent of 83 /311 = 14.9 degrees
