If you prefer to explore the outdoors without the dependency on GPS technology but feel a backup device would be a hand addition to your gear. The new Bushnell BackTrack D-Tour might well be worth a look, as it provide a much simplified GPS which if needed can point you to your home base and even track your route but without the colour maps and multiple way-points.
Instead the Bushnell BackTrack D-Tour provides you with up to five way-points together with a digital compass. Enabling you to rely on your map reading skills just a little more than you would need to with a full specification GPS system.

Other useful features of the Bushnell BackTrack D-Tour allow you to track and log your runs or walk and then plug the device via USB into your PC to see your route, using Google maps, including timings, distance and direction, the D-TOUR includes a self-calibrating digital compass, time, temperature, altitude and latitude/longitude coordinates.
The Bushnell BackTrack D-Tour is available in either green or red and is priced around $120 and supports Windows (XP SP1 or later) and MAC (10.4.9 or later).
