Garmin Alpha 100 with TT15 COMBO (1-dog GPS System)
The Garmin Alpha is a GPS e-collar combo system.You can jump back between your map and your compass really fast.What's nice about the touchscreen on Garmin units is that they are glove friendly.You have your collar.Now, the difference with the Alpha is because it is an e-collar you are also going to be sending signals from the handheld to the collar.You can also change update rates.The e-collar on the Garmin Alpha is ad as advanced as anything Tri-Tronics has ever made.It has short and long contact points.The e-collar on the Garmin Alpha is very sophisticated in that you can set different levels for different dogs.You can have some dogs on momentary, some dogs on continuous.So if you need all sorts of types of stimulation for your dog, you can raise and lower the level, you can change it at the transmitter as needed.Three buttons across the top are what control the stimulation.You can either have it where it's one button per dog, so you can have three different buttons on the handheld and then you can scroll over to your next three if you are running six, nine, 12 dogs.If you are only running one dog then you can take each button and customize it for that particularly dog.The update rate is the time in between radio signals that are sent from the collar to your handheld.A faster update rate will give you more information as to where your dog is and what he's doing, but it will also burn your battery up a little bit faster.I run my Alpha on a 2 1/2 second update rate, and typically I see about 24 hours of runtime. .
If another handheld device is tracking this dog, for best results, remove the dog from the device, and use the track and train codes ( Adding a Dog Using the Track and Train Codes ) or share wirelessly over ANT+ ® ( Sharing a Dog Wirelessly ) to add the dog again. .
