Just looking for GPS tracking without training functions? Check out the SportDOG TEK L.
The TEK's e-collar is so versatile. You can easily customize the TEK is to suit your specific training situation. Using the remote is fast and easy. It's just a really neat combination of features for an e-collar.
Already have a Remote Training Collar but want the TEK GPS? You can buy it two different ways: GPS tracking + ecollar or simply GPS tracking.
If you get the GPS only, you can add the remote training collar part later.
Combining E-collars & GPS tracking
I think that a lot of folks are going to find that they like having both GPS tracking and a dog training collar in a single handheld remote. It's pretty neat to be able to watch the dogs on the screen and make corrections from the same handheld. When you're working your dogs and making corrections quickly, there's no going back and forth between a GPS and an e-collar transmitter.
The TEK is quick and easy to operate, the design is well thought out, and it's going to work for training a large selection of dogs. The TEK is a pretty awesome remote training collar even without the GPS Tracking options.

"They did their home work, and it shows."
By: Patrick Greiner
GSP. Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Things they do not tell you can hurt the dogs( I cannot find this information in the manuel) . When in GPS mode the 3 control buttons on the left side will Shock, Tone or Vibrate the Electronic collar of the dog. Best advise is to reverse the order C T V to T V C on the training set up. For instance if you push the top button Dog 1 will recieve a signal, Middle button is Dog 2. I learn this the hard way. I recommend the Training collar buttons be set up with the top button on Tone, Middle Vibrate, and Bottom Cont. or Momentary. Thus only sending tone when in GPS mode ( GSP screen is on viewer)which works great for call back. Next improvement would be to provide short 1/8" studs for the electronic collar for GSP as the stock ones are way to long. Reason is the collar has a great engronomic design which allows the it to sit closer the old box designs of earlier collars. I plan on making this call to the manufacure to see if they can make me new stud or give me the thread and pitch so I can have them made. As for the collar GPS is without question the simplest and can be used with 50 year old eyes. I like that it just show me where and what my dogs are doing. Battery life is very good. Over all just a great collar. I have been training with it all summer and will put them to the test here in Arizona and South Dakota this hunting season. Great job on the design and performance and takes very little time to master the system. They did there home work and it shows.

"Liked the fact that I could separate the training collar from the tracker when competing"
By: Robert Geddeis From IL
Field Irish Setter. Hunts. Competes. I used a TEK collar as well as a Garmin for a month before I decided on the TEK. Since my dogs compete in field trials, I especially liked the fact that I could separate the training collar from the tracker when competing. I'm very happy thus far with this collar.

German Shorthair. Hunts. Family pet. The only trouble I've had is the continuous mode doesn't seem to shock my dog from the control screen. If I switch the button to Increasing mode it shocks just fine. ?!? Probably operator error, but I haven't figured it out yet. I really like the clean screen on the GPS mode and how easy and quick it is to locate my dog! Looking forward to taking it to western Kansas in a couple of weeks for Pheasant season!

Hunts. Family pet. Best investment I have made for Benelli my dog. It is easy to use, and I can track her every move when she is in the woods. Benelli is running through the water all the time with the collar on, and it is waterproof and durable. I would recommend this product to anyone that hunts with their dogs.

"This unit is exactly what I was looking for in a tracking collar."
By: Nick Janak From TX
Black Mouth Ker. This unit is exactly what I was looking for in a tracking collar. The box it arrived in was first class, excellent packaging, simple instructions, and my invoice with two business cards from Gun Dog Supply.
The package arrived that morning, I charged the collar and hand held unit that day, and used it on my dog later that evening.
Everything from Gun Dog Supply was first class and handled well. Emails when order was received, once packaged had shipped, then a follow up email making sure I was content with the product. I couldn't have asked for better service. I will definitely do business with them again.

"Works well in open areas"
By: Richard Wagner
POINTERS. The tracking works well in open areas. When hunting around large trees the collar will lose a signal for a while until the dog is the open again. The e-collar works well and has great range. SportDog has done a great job of backing up their product. They sent me a replacement no questions asked.

Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. I have only used this product for half a season, but it has worked great every time. The point alert function is amazing. Hunting in thick cover that is taller than my dogs, it is nice to know where they are and what they are doing at any moment. I will be buying an add a dog collar for my pup before next season.

English Setter. Owns 11 dogs. Hunts. This is my second season with this collar and I have had to send the collar back due to an inconsistent charge. Now I\'m experiencing problems with the handheld unit. After a full charge and 4 hours of use, it flashes \"low battery\". Specs say you should be getting 20-25 hours so, I\'m sending back to Sport Dog once again. Disappointing based on the price of this unit.

By: Mr David Barton Campbell
firstname.lastname@example.org. Owns 3 dogs. Hunts. Competes. This is a nice product except for one thing. You will need to have PERFECT hearing to hear the weak beeps from the collar and the hand held receiver. The On-Point Mode notification can be either a tone and/or vibration. You will have to be holding the receiver in your hand to feel the vibration, if it is stuck in your vest or pocket with any layers of hunting clothes you won't feel it. The notification beep is a VERY VERY WEAK high frequency non-adjustable tone. If you have any hearing loss at all, which most of us veteran hunters do, you will not be able to hear it. The company needs to make this tone fully adjustable in both frequency range and volume control.

GPS BATTERY on SportDOG TEK Collars
Uses a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery pack.
Average battery charge life is 25 hours.
Allow 2 hours for a complete charge for a fully drained battery.
The SportDOG TEK series tracking collar will get around 25 hours of run time starting with a 2.5 second update rate and slowing to a longer update rate as the battery becomes depleted. The SportDOG TEK E-collar module runs off of a separate battery and use of the ecollar will not effect battery life of the tracking collar.
Collar Battery Runtime vs Update Rate
Battery life on a GPS collar is based on the "update rate" -- how often the GPS collar radios back location to the Handheld.
The slower the update rate, the longer the battery life. A slower update rate also means that you have longer gaps of time between knowing the exact location of your dog.
Most folks want a combination of the fastest possible update rate with the longest possible battery life. The SportDOG Tek collar starts out with a 2.5 second update rate. As the battery life gets lower the Tek collar automatically slows the update rate to conserve battery life.
First 10 hours of runtime - 2.5 second update rate
Next 5 hours of runtime - 10 second update rate
Next 10 hours of runtime - 25 second update rate
Total battery runtime - 25 hours
SportDOG Tek collar does not allow you the option of changing the update rate. The advantage of the Tek collar is that while you are hunting (the first 10 hours of the battery) you have the fastest possible update rate at 2.5 seconds.
After 10 hours, the collar slows the update rate to stretch out the battery life. The assumption here is that once you have passed the 10 to 15 hour mark, you are no longer hunting, but you are looking for a lost dog.
The other thing to keep in mind is that with the way the TEK collar goes about setting the update rate, you are really required to charge the collar every time before you hunt. If you don't, you will have a substantially slower update rate on your second day of hunting.
The SportDOG TEK transmitter and receiver have a "line of sight" range of up to seven miles. The SportDOG TEK communicates using a VHF radio signal between the Dog GPS collar and the Handheld GPS unit, so to get the full range out of a system there should be nothing between the transmitter and the receiver.
Realistically, this isn't going to happen in most of the places that we spend time with our dogs, so the actual usable range will be less than 7 miles depending on hunting conditions, including weather, terrain, and the presence of cover.
SportDOG Tek can mark up to 20 waypoint location. It also has the option of marking a Starting point which can be used to locate your vehicle in the field.
How SportDOG GPS works:
SportDOG TEK GPS system consists of two parts: a Handheld GPS and a Dog GPS collar
GPS collar gets location from GPS satellites
GPS Collar sends location update to Handheld via radio signals
GPS Collar updates Handheld every 2.5 seconds
Handheld plots location of you and your dog
Dog Tracking Screen shows you and your dog's location including:
dog's distance from you,
dog's activity (moving, on point or treed).
Add up to 12 dogs to the Tek Handheld GPS Ecollar system. All you need are extra TEK collars.
SportDOG Tek Anatomy
There are three parts to the TEK: the handheld, the GPS collar, and the e-collar. All are independent from one another. The transmitter speaks to the e-collar, and the GPS speaks back to the handheld as a receiver. The Tek GPS and remote collar are independent receivers docked together on one collar strap.
GPS Collar Strap is made of durable rubber. The wires that connect the GPS antenna to the electronics are embedded in the rubber for protection. If you need to make it smaller depending on the size of your dogs, you can cut it very easily along the grooves designed into the strap.
