The Communication menu allows you to change the User ID, GPS channel, and E-Collar channel of your system if needed. The User ID is a unique identifier used by the Handheld Device and shared with the GPS Collar with E-Collar Module. The GPS-channel is the radio channel used for communication between the GPS Collar and the Handheld Device, while the E-Collar channel is the radio channel used for communication between the E-Collar Module and the Handheld Device.
The "My Collars" screen is where you assign your collars with a matching color. You will also use this screen to "pair" the collar to the matching color. You will also activate the Ecollar portion if you have the Ecollar / tracking combination collars. You also use this section to "share" a collar. Sharing a collar is when you want to track someone else's collar on your handheld.
The My Dogs section allows you to make an independent custom profile for each of your dogs. This option allows you to have different settings for each dog with different stimulation types, levels, tone, vibration, and preset levels. You can also pick between the low, medium and high stim collar options for dogs that have totally different sensitivity.
The Vehicle mode option should be used when you are using your handheld to track your dogs while driving in a vehicle. Using vehicle mode disables the internal compass and allows your Handheld Device to rely on GPS for heading and bearing information. This allows your Handheld Device to provide stable readings and not be affected by the metal structure and magnetic fields within your vehicle.
