I give this collar and tracking system a 2.5 rating because it will track my dog, but there are a things I don't like about it. The biggest thing that bothers me is the amount of time it takes for the collar to pair to the tracking system. I usually have to wait several minutes for the collar to pair up. It is very frustrating, especially if I don't turn it on until I'm ready to hunt. To get around this, I try to turn the collar, antenna, and phone on 15 minutes before I turn my dog loose. Not the end of the world, but annoying. This wastes battery (the batteries on the collar and antenna are very good, so it's not a critical problem). 15 minutes before turning the dog loose, I'm often still driving, so if I turn it on while driving, the total distance the history shows for my dog running will be inaccurate, potentially by miles. Again, not a critical fault, but I like to review this info after the hunts, and I would prefer it be accurate. Also, sometimes the system is very inaccurate. I can't tell if the issue is caused by sitting on my four wheeler while trying to use it, because this is when I have the most issues, but sometimes it works fine while sitting on my four wheeler. Example, at some point during my last hunt, the direction indicating North and the arrow indicating my dog's location got stuck. No matter which direction I faced, the North indicator pointed straight ahead of me, and the dog indicator showed left, which would be West according to the screen. Nothing changed as I rotated 360 degrees. All of this with the fastest refresh rate. I walked away from the four-wheeler for a few minutes and cycled between the different display options on the device, a few minutes later it started working again. After that, I was able to sit on the four-wheeler and had no issues (this problem could be a big deal if it persists). I use this system paired with cell phone that exceeds all the requirements specified by Dogtra. Overall, this product will track, tone, and shock your dog, so it works, but I wish I had spent the extra money and bought the Garmin system. I did not use this product much within the allowable trial period or I would've returned it and bought the Garmin.

Dogtra Pathfinder GPS + Ecollar COMBO Range
The Dogtra Pathfinder GPS Connector has a "line of sight" range of up to 9 miles. 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 MUCH less than 9 miles depending on hunting conditions, including weather, terrain, and the presence of cover.
