  • Garmin ALPHA 200 + TT15X Combo

    Garmin "X" Series Collars

    The TT15X is a track and train collar while the T5X is tracking only. Both collars are compatible with the Astro 430, all four Alpha handhelds, and the PRO 550 Plus. They can be tracked from multiple handhelds at the same time and can be run at the same time as TT10, TT15, and T5 collars.

    Please note that Garmin's "X" collars are NOT compatible with the Astro 320 or 220.

    The "X" collars have the same physical design as Garmin's regular size collars, but with several upgraded features:

  • Longer Battery Life -- up to 80 hours of run time using the 2.5 second update rate
  • Garmin Express Update Option -- you can update your "X" collar's software with Garmin Express
  • Sleep Mode -- you can put your "X" collar into sleep mode using Alpha handhelds, extending battery life even longer
  • Collar "About" Screen -- on Alpha 200i and 200 handhelds you can check your "X" collar's software version


  • Extended Battery Life

    The biggest improvement on these collars is longer battery life.

    Every time we talk with Garmin, battery life is a topic. With the "X" collars they have drastically increased battery life and added options to stretch it out even longer if needed.

    We are seeing between 60 and 80 hours of run time off a single charge with a 2.5-second update rate. Setting your collar on a 5 or 10-second update rate will push it past 80 hours, and a 2-minute update rate will give you over 130 hours.

    This will be especially helpful for folks with big running dogs or in lost dog situations. An "X" collar set in Rescue Mode drops down to a 2-minute update rate when the battery reaches less than 25% capacity, giving you the maximum possible time to locate a lost dog. More battery life = more time.

    There are few things more useless than a tracking collar with a dead battery.

    Keep in mind that this extended battery life option doesn't change my take on charging your collars.

    I still recommend that you charge them after every use.

    I want you to have the maximum battery life available if you need it. The only way to make that happen is to charge your system before each use. Also, keep in mind there has not been a change in the handheld batteries, so you will still need to charge them pretty much every night anyway.

    Updating Your Collars with Garmin Express

    With the "X" collars, you can now update both your collars and your handheld with Garmin Express.

    This eliminates the need to have multiple programs installed to keep your system up-to-date. I prefer Garmin Express for several reasons, but not being able to update everything from one program has been a hassle. Now every new dog tracking product can be updated using Garmin Express.

    Sleep Mode

    The "X" collars have a Sleep Mode option just like the Garmin MINI collars.

    Sleep Mode allows you the option of using your Alpha handheld to shut off both radios in the collar (GPS and handheld communication), significantly extending battery life. The collar searches every few seconds for a turn-on signal. Once you give the signal from your handheld, the radios turn back on and the collar returns to normal communication mode.

    Note that you must be within range to activate the collar.

    This is a specialized feature that really isn't going to be used by most of our customers. It's designed for situations where either you can't get to a dog in time to pick him up and are forced to leave him out overnight, or you are intentionally leaving him out and want to preserve battery life.

    We have a few folks that like to leave their collars on their dogs all day while hunting, even when moving around in their vehicle, and Sleep Mode lets them conserve run time. I'm not sure if it's still necessary with the longer battery life, but the option is there.

    Folks with livestock protection dogs will like the Sleep Mode feature. It will give you extra-long battery life while still keeping up with the location of your dogs.

    "About" Screen

    The "X" collars give you the ability to view your collar software data on your Alpha 200i or Alpha 200 handheld.

    This means you can check the software version from your handheld without the use of a computer. Not a giant deal, but it's a feature that we had back in the Astro 320 / 220 days, and it's nice to see its return.

    I'm extremely pleased with these new collars.

    We always want more range, longer battery life, and more durability from our tracking collars.

    While we only get one of the big three updated here, it's an important update -- perhaps the most important -- and it will make finding lost dogs easier.

    Transcript from Steve's Video

    So this is the GARMIN TT15X. If you're familiar with the TT collars, it looks exactly like the current version of the TT15. The X collars have three major differences. The first difference is gonna be battery life. And that's the most important difference here. The battery life on this collar is substantially better than what we have in the TT15s right now, and it blows the TT15 MINIs out of the water.

    In a two and a half second update rate, you're looking at between 60 and 80 hours of run time off of a single charge. The variance in there is gonna depend on a couple of things. Whether you run your lights, how much you're stimming the dog. Depends on what you're doing.

    There's a difference too, between straight run time, and then you turn it on and turn it off, you'll get some differences there. But it's substantially longer than what we've had before, and that's a big deal, especially in a lost dog situation. The other. Two things. One of them's a giant deal. One of 'em is one of those things where it just depends on what you do.

    The next big deal is that you can update the TT15X collars through Garmin Express. Prior to the 15X collars, you had to use Web Updater to update your collars. And so now everything that Garmin has on the market can be updated through Garmin Express. So that's handy, cuts down on the number of programs you have to have.

    And then the last new thing is that the 15X has the sleep mode function for the collars, which we've had that in the MINI 15s, but we have not had that in the regular 15s. So the 15X has sleep mode. For most people that is not a big deal. But for folks that have dogs that are, that are out a long time and they're either intentionally not recovering them at the end of the day, or they can't get to them at the end of the day and they need to be able to leave them out overnight, the sleep mode option allows you to power down the collar so that it's no longer using its radio functions. And then when you return to the area all you have to do is go back into it and wake the collar up.

    When you're looking at the collar, you go into your menu and right here, we have adjust sleep mode. And so you select that and then you are gonna go, I'm gonna put this collar to sleep. And so if you watch it, it's going to shut down. Okay. So basically it is lost all communication with the collar and it, that way, your, your battery's just not being used hardly at all.

    And what the collar's gonna be doing is that it is going to wake up and look for a wake signal. And so what's happening is there's a rotation. And what it's doing is instead of constantly broadcasting and pulling GPS signals, it's waiting to wake up for a radio signal. So when you get back in the area, you want to turn it back on, you go back into your menu and you adjust collar sleep mode, and we're going to wake and now it's gonna take a second for it to update.

    There you go. And you'll notice that the GPS has not quite come on yet, takes a second for it to pick back up. But basically that allows you to power down the radio signals on the collar so that it's no longer doing GPS or MURS communication. And that's going to drastically improve your battery life.





    Garmin ALPHA 200 Handheld

    Garmin listened to your user feedback:
  • Simplify to only screens you use
  • Declutter screens to only show info YOU care about
  • ProView Compass shows multiple dogs on one compass screen
  • WIFI means automatic updates and easy birdseye install

    The NEW Garmin Alpha 200 takes everything we love about the Alpha 100 and squeezes it into a sleeker package with even more features.

    All the way back in 2012, Garmin gave us the best-selling Garmin Alpha 100: the first-ever Garmin GPS tracking collar combined with a Tri-Tronics remote trainer. For the first time, you could track and train your dog using one handheld and one collar with the added versatility of a touchscreen.

    Now after all these years, Garmin gives us their second-generation Alpha handheld: the 200.

  • Bigger Screen: The Alpha 200 features a larger 3.5" touchscreen compared to the Alpha 100's 3" screen, giving you more detail and better control.

  • Three Side Buttons: In addition to the three front buttons carried over from the original Alpha 100, the new Alpha 200 adds three side buttons for improved usability.

  • More Internal Memory: The Alpha 200 has 16 GB of internal memory. That's FOUR TIMES MORE than what was in the original Alpha 100. More memory means more detailed maps, more dog data, and more functionality.

  • Compass Pro View: In addition to your dogs, you can now see the direction and distance to your truck and your friends' Alpha handhelds on the Compass Screen.

    Some other cool new features of the Alpha 200 include:

  • Preloaded TopoActive Maps
  • Directly download BirdsEye satellite imagery to your Alpha
  • Barometric Altimeter
  • Hunt Metrics Data shows each dog's hunting patterns and behaviors so you can keep them healthy and safe
  • Compatible with the Garmin Explore App and Website for managing tracks, routes, and waypoints, as well as reviewing statistics from the field




  • BEST-SELLER.

    Features of the Garmin ALPHA 200 + TT15X Combo

      Download Detailed GPS Dog Trail Info

      Map the area you and your dog covered during the day's hunt on your computer using the Waypoints and Tracks and Dog Tracks features on the Alpha Handheld. Download your hunt using either MapSource or Motionbased.com and see your hunt on a TOPO map or Google Earth.

      Avoid Getting Lost with Hunter-Friendly Icons

      Mark and label your vehicle, UTVs, blinds, hunting lodge, food plots, and other outdoor features with waypoint icons specially designed for hunting.

      Keep Up with Birds Using the Covey Counter

      Mark the exact location of your coveys on the map with this special waypoint feature and record the time of day, elevation, number of birds in the covey, and number of birds taken.

    Additional Uses

      Although the Garmin Alpha was originally designed for hunting dogs, many of our non-hunting customers have found that the Alpha is perfect for spending time outdoors with their dogs and allowing them to run off-leash. Whether hiking, camping, biking, or horseback riding, the Garmin Alpha gives your dogs more freedom while letting you keep a close eye on them and find them if they get lost. Since the Garmin Alpha is also a full-featured GPS, it will help keep you from getting lost as well!


    Garmin ALPHA 200 + TT15X Combo Batteries

    • Li-ion batteries in both handheld and collar
    • Less than 6-hour charge time
    • Handheld and collar batteries both user-replaceable
    • Snap-on charging clip for no exposed charging jacks
    • Dual-lead charger lets you charge the collar and handheld at the same time

      Handheld Battery Runtime:

      ~16-20 hours

      Collar Battery Runtimes:

      ~60-80 hours depending on update rate







    Garmin ALPHA 200 + TT15X Combo Range


      The Garmin Alpha handheld and collar have a "line of sight" range of up to 9 miles.

      The Alpha handheld and dog GPS collar communicate using a VHF radio signal. To get the maximum range out of the system there needs to be nothing obstructing this signal.

      Realistically, this won't happen in most places we spend time with our dogs, so the actual usable range will be MUCH less than 9 miles depending on hunting/training conditions, weather, terrain, presence of cover, etc.

    Garmin Alpha GPS Maps

  • Includes free Garmin TopoActive map and Birdseye Direct (no annual subscription required)
  • Supports optional map data including TOPO U.S. 24K, autorouting with City Navigator, and Garmin Custom Maps

    Great product!
    May 13, 2022
    The Garmin Alpha 200i is a definite step up from the Alpha 100. I have used the Aplha 100 for about 5 years and really liked it. The larger more easy to see screen of the 200i, the SOS button and the easily programmable main buttons with the ability to toggle between diffent functions of those buttons is much more user friendly.
    Pros
    • Large easy to see screen.
    • SOS button
    • Easy to customize main buttons and toggle to different functions.
    Cons
    • Sometimes an even faster refresh rate would be nice.

    Best ever
    February 10, 2022
    I have four small dogs that were in need of training in the field. They would tend to bolt after game. I purchased the tt15 mini and alpha. Best idea ever. The collar is perfect for 50-60 lb dogs. No way the tt15 would fit, too large for their size. Gps handheld and collar pick up signal quickly and work well in wooded areas.
    I love the ability to see the dogs and to recall them in a second. The headlight function is cute but not exceptional. A beacon on top might be better to see the dog. Garmin graphics are marginal but you can actually upgrade the maps for free online making the gps better. Screen is okay. Not top of the line screen as on the Montana but it works well and does what it should. Touch screen is okay, not spectacular but does well in rain. Forget using gloves with it. Takes a few hours of use to navigate through the various features but with practice it becomes second nature. I’m getting more collars for the rest of the dogs.
    Pros
    • Great trainer. Great to be able to see dogs on a map. Great to be able to recall dogs from a distance without a ton of yelling.
    Cons
    • Pricey but absolutely worth the piece of mind and ease of training.
    • Clunky Garmin software but still effective.

    VERY HAPPY
    November 23, 2021
    Upgraded from the ALPHA 100 and glad I did.
    Really like the larger screen and the various menus are more logical and easier to find with more capabilities. I’m still learning about all the features and there are many tutorials out there to help.

    If you want to use the vibrate function on a TT15 collar, you will have to delete one of the other functions (momentary, continuous or tone) OR add an additional page with vibrate on it. For example, my yellow collar has M, C, T, on the first page and M, C, V on the 2nd page. Scrolling through pages is easy using the buttons on the side of the handheld. Very intuitive.

    Enable WiFi and the handheld automatically updates the software to the latest version when you turn it on. How cool is that?

    Presently, I’m trying to figure out if I can set different radius alarms for different collars. For example, I’d like to keep an eye on my young pointer and know if he wanders past 150 yards while I don’t mind my broke dogs ranging to 250.

    Overall, I’m very pleased with my purchase. Much thought went into this device from people who hunt and Garmin listened.
    Pros
    • Large bright screen
    • Intuitive and easy to find menus
    • Many customizable features
    • Well made and durable
    • Various programmable alarms
    • Can use buttons for almost everything instead of tapping on the glass
    • WiFi capable
    • Fast update rate
    Cons
    • Really can't think of any right now.

    Alpha 200i vs. the Alpha 100
    April 24, 2022
    My new Alpha 200i works well but I am finding it doer not have the range to stay connected like the Alpha 100 does. Other than that it operates very well. Would not call it superior to the Alpha 100
    Pros
    • Navigation of the system is easier and faster.
    Cons
    • Does not maintain connection to the dogs as good as the Alpha 100

    More memory
    November 30, 2021
    Best improvement yet is with the screen, no more finding a shady spot to view your dogs from previous models. The larger screen and more memory is great.
    Pros
    • More features, larger screen, and memory.
    Cons
    • None yet

    Stepped up to Alpha 200
    September 8, 2021
    Am transitioning from the Alpha 100 to the Alpha 200. Love the larger screen and clarity. Taking some time to get familiar with the key setup. I just wish the manuals were not written by extraterrestrials, but by gun dog owners and trainers; so that my learning curve was quicker.
    Pros
    • Larger screen and characters. Easier to read without glasses.
    • Much better clarity.
    • Selective options.
    Cons
    • Heavier and bulkier than Alpha 100.
    • Manual slows down learning and is frustrating.

    Nice system
    September 1, 2021
    System works as it should. Unfortunately, the colored collar that was sent didn’t fit the TT15 mini.
    Pros
    • Bigger screen

    I ordered this unit from Gun Dog Supply. I received it quickly but the top left button on the front didn’t work. I called them and they sent me another unit that day. I haven’t had time to completely check this one out but it seems to be fine. Really great service from Gun Dog!
    Pros
    • Really good upgrades.
    Cons
    • First unit was defective

    This e-collar is easy to set up and use. It’s a little pricey but, with all of it’s functions and the added security of the inreach function I think it’s worth it
    Pros
    • Easy to set up and use
    Cons
    • A little pricey and I wish it had a 2 way radio to communicate with hunting partners

    T5 collars
    February 17, 2021
    Easy and fast. I ordered the wrong collars T5, my fault. Called Gundogsupply and they said send them back and get the the ones I wanted for a slight increase in price for the TT15.
    Pros
    • I will review the TT15 collars after I receive them

    Awesome product
    January 7, 2021
    I ordered the 200 I around Christmas and even with the holiday I still received it in a timely manner it was shipped the next day very pleased with the service from gun dog supply I have two alpha 100s and wanted to up grade we run hounds for coyote and tracking is very important they are very good instruments and we depend on them on every hunt the alpha 200I is definitely a worthwhile update the bigger screen is awesome for us older folks and the ability to group packs of dogs separately is a great feature so far I love it and would recommend it to anyone handling dogs if you’re looking for a good tracker this is the one and I would recommend that you look to Gun dog supply for your purchase I’m sure you will be very pleased with their service

    Alpha 200i
    January 7, 2021
    I have been using the Alpha 100 for several years and really loved it. I recently bought the 200 and am still trying to get used to the differences. Overall, I love the 200! It is somewhat time consuming to get used to the different operating system, but I believe it will be well worth it. I love the slimmer, more streamline, look and feel of the 200 compared to the 100.

    At this point I only have one issue and I am sure it's just an issue I have not figured out yet; however, when adding dogs, other than mine, I am having a lot of interference issues even when grouping them differently. I have yet to figure out how to add dogs in each individual group. As of now, I have only recognized one way to add dogs and then group them. This is where the interference is coming into play. If there is a way to add dogs specifically to each individual group my problem would be solved. However, I have not figured that out yet.

    Overall, this seems to be a great product!

    Works as intended but requires study and practice to us in the field.
    December 19, 2020
    I'm a big fan of tech and use it a lot. GPS trackers are great and knowing where my dog is and has been makes for a better hunt. This GPS, however, has a steep learning curve. Its no problem sitting at the kitchen table playing around with the features. In the field it is a different story. I often found myself tripping over ground cover while trying to get out the GPS and get back on the right screen to give a command or find the dog. With a gun in one hand, walking through sage or creek bottoms, using a gloved hand I would often get frustrated because the screen would have changed due an inadvertant touch while trying to get the screen in view.
    I know much of this is my fault because I didn't learn the lock feature (assuming there is one) and was not so familiar with the device that I could reliably operate it without looking. I ended up putting a cow bell on the dog which let me know where she was at all times and then used the GPS collar much more sparingly. That seemed to do the trick. No more tripping while starring at the screen like a millennial.
    Other than that Garmin always makes great quality products with their own special twist on usability features and high prices. The product works as designed and it is up to you to bring your skill level up to its ability.
    Pros
    • Accurate GPS, mapping
    Cons
    • Steep learning curve

    Second Try Works
    November 12, 2020
    The first unit I received was defective: the compass would not calibrate properly and the pointer sometimes literally spun in circles on the screen when I tried to find my pointing dog. Worse than useless. I spent hours testing and recalibrating the compass, calling Garmin's tech support (basically useless), and finally reached out to Gun Dog Supply for help. GDS is awesome and their staff know more about Garmin products relating to dogs than Garmin. They suggested some things to try that Garmin didn't, and when I got back to them that their suggestions didn't work and that I thought the unit was defective, they sent me a replacement. I'm happy to report that the replacement Alpha 200i works as it should (I've now used it on two chukar hunts in extreme terrain and the compass works as well or better than my trusty old Alpha 100).
    Pros
    • Includes Garmin's inReach
    • Has more features and tracking doodads than the Alpha 100
    • Bigger, brighter screen than the Alpha 100
    • Can track other handhelds easily on the compass
    Cons
    • Tiny bit heavier than the Alpha 100
    • First unit was defective but took a lot of time to verify that
    • Garmin's tech support and software continue to be very subpar

    New Alpha.....missing old features
    November 11, 2020
    I am a long time Alpha 100 user. I have been waiting for a new one for a log time. I like the new features but it is missing a few of the old ones. The one I miss the most is when running different dogs on one screen. I use to be able to touch the button or screen and be able to change the function from Tone to M, C or V. This is annoying. You can work around it by having different training screens for each option but it is more work. I contacted Gun Dog and Garmin and I am hopeful they will be able to bring this feature back.
    Pros
    • tracking subscription
    Cons
    • missing the easy dog adjust on the screen

    No OnX Hunt chip compatability.
    November 9, 2020
    Sold the unit to my friend at a discount instead of returning to Gun Dog Supply. Garmin took a big step backwards by not including compatability for the OnX Hunt chip. I upgraded from the Alpha 100 and expected the same OnX experience. I was disappointed. Most Garmin units recognize the chip, not the Alpha 200i. I expected the latest and greatest from Garmin to do the same as their previous units.
    Pros
    • Great screen, excellent interface, very easy to operate the controls.
    Cons
    • As stated above.
