Garmin Alpha 100 With TT15 COMBO (1-dog GPS System)



By: Quincy From WA

Hunts.


Nice product so far, in appearance. But way over the top. This is a product for a trainer or hound runner, not a hunter, or at least the average hunter. It has at least 2x to 3x more feature options than is necessary for a recreational hunter. All I wanted was a collar that would tell me where my dog was, how far away, if he was moving, provide a variable correction stimulus range with or without correction tone, and a terrain map as a cake filler, but not necessary. This system does all that, and everything else under the sun including bark and electric fence options. Sheesh, I want to hunt, not watch a touch screen. Probably worth the money for the professionals, but not for me. I can see that a certain market segment might like this system; but not the average guy afield.

After a bit more than a week, I am still trying to figure it out. The manual provided is marginal to useless, but you can download an encyclopedia volume if you also have a satellite WiFi and computer in the field. Heck, why not just move your office to the field too?

Have not decided if I will return it, or try to work with it. I do computers, technology, and complex financial analysis every day; and have 3 post graduate degrees, and still trying to comprehend the darn thing. Maybe I will quit my day job to learn to use it. Nice product, but I am rating it for my application. I think Garmin oversold this thing, which might affect my future thinking on their products.
