      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.
      • 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
      • Really can't think of any right now.

      An elaborate tool that's easy to use
      August 4, 2021
      I'm not saying it's for everyone, but it's definitely for me. I needed something that would allow me to let the dogs roam our property while knowing they're not getting into trouble at the neighbours'.

      This collar can be nearly plug and play or customized to your needs and I feel like I'm gonna grow with it's possibilities without having to be an expert out the door. One of my concerns was to know if I can use this for training as well.

      The Garmin/Tritronics 500 pro/plus' remote is so perfect in my hand, ergonomics became a strong consideration. Although the fit is not as natural and obviously the unit is bulkier, it is still good enough that it won't affect my timing as I feared it might when training. Switching between dogs is easy and can be done promptly.

      The InReach feature was something I had on the side prior to this unit and the transfer was easy and quickly done. Thanks to the on screen keyboard, It's easier to write on this device than on the Explorer+. I know I can use the app, but for some reason, there's always strong delay between my phone and the Garmin units.

      All in all very satisfied and I feel confident that this hunting season will be enhanced in part thanks to always knowing where the dogs are and what they are doing at all times even in the thickest forests.
      • Easy to use.
      • Complete tool for training, hunting and communicating.
      • Wife knows at all times where I am.
      • Can still be customized to better fit my needs should they change.
      • Bulkier than "regular remote".
      • Pricy.
      • Wife knows at all times where I am.

      So far great product. So reassuring to know where my setter is at all times and if he is on point. Geofence is a super feature in thick cover. Only complaint is that the alert alarms are hard to hear for an old guy.
      • Easy to read
      • Great features
      • Hard to hear alert sounds

      Terrific Product - Glad I Upgraded
      March 18, 2021
      I owned and extensively used an Alpha 100/TT15 bundle for over six years and loved it. However, the Alpha 200i system is a significant upgrade in all respects. In particular, being able to simultaneously track the locations of my dogs, my truck and other Alpha handhelds using the Pro View compass is a great new feature. Moreover, the integrated inReach satellite communication technology in the 200i is a game changer. I can now do solo hunts in remote areas (with poor or no cell service) with the confidence that I can keep family members apprised of my location and summon non-emergency or Emergency SOS assistance, if needed. Lastly, Steve’s instructional videos for the Alpha 200i system are an invaluable resource and a very efficient way to learn about all of the features (many of which are customizable) of the 200i.
      • * Excellent user interfaces (both the enhanced touch screen and new side buttons).
      • * Greatly improved screen (larger, sharper resolution and easier to read in bright sunlight).
      • * Pro View compass.
      • * Integrated inReach satellite communication technology and flexible subscription plans.
      • The 200i is not compatible with OnX Hunt technology. However, the Garmin Huntview Plus map cards that I purchased separately from GDS for the 200i provide a reasonable substitute for OnX Hunt.

      Peace of mind
      December 20, 2020
      We bought this combo for peace of mind when our GSP is in the field. It’s great knowing he’s safe. He’s gotten used to it so quickly! And the delivery time and customer service from Gun Dog Supply has been top notch.
      • Rugged. Easy to use. Sensitive touch screen. Easy access regular buttons.
      • Mistakes, um, bio breaks for pointing.

      Garmin Alpha 200i is a great product
      December 11, 2020
      I made the switch to the 200i/tt15 combo right before the 2020 pheasant season started. Glad I made the switch to gps. The 200i made it extremely easy. It’s easy to navigate, easy to setup and easy to use in the field. There is a very well made how to video that gundogsupply made if there is any kind of questions. Would recommend to anyone on the fence to switching!
      • Nice large screen
      • Bright easy to read screen in the field
      • Can personalize the training key sequence to what you want
      • Lock Screen
      • Compass view for your dogs/truck
      • I wish there was a teather/clip included. For the price I think it very well could.

      Great track & train
      December 8, 2020
      This was the first collar I got for my 6 month GSP puppy, I figured do it once and do it right. This thing gives a piece of mind for dogs that have full range and can get out of sight quickly. The ability to change the top training buttons has made personalizing the system a piece of cake as I have been introducing tones and vibrations, but when stimulation becomes necessary switching some buttons will be a piece of cake.
      • Locking screen

      I am very happy with this tracking/training system. The dogs enjoy a bit more freedom as well.

      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.

      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.
      • Larger screen and characters. Easier to read without glasses.
      • Much better clarity.
      • Selective options.
      • Heavier and bulkier than Alpha 100.
      • Manual slows down learning and is frustrating.
      By Erin
      Nice system

      System works as it should. Unfortunately, the colored collar that was sent didn’t fit the TT15 mini.

      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!

      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
      • Easy to set up and use
      • A little pricey and I wish it had a 2 way radio to communicate with hunting partners

      Nice Upgrade
      March 24, 2021
      Rather than repair my old handheld, I decided to upgrade. Very Nice unit with nice features. However Garmin should really work on screen quality. With the Cell phone technology that’s available as well as the high end GPS units for boats that Garmin and others produce, I expected a better screen. But all in all, this is a good unit and worth the upgrade.

      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.
      • I will review the TT15 collars after I receive them

      Very pleased with the Alpha 200i after the first two weeks of everyday use. Recently upgraded from the Alpha 100 system, which I used for seven years and liked also. The new device is similar to the 100, except everything about it is a little easier to use. Transitioning was not difficult. The instructional videos by Steve were very helpful for me. I wouldn't dream of letting my dogs loose in the wilderness without having this device!

      January 21, 2021
      Little more cumbersome to set up but not a steep learning curb. Love the ease of changing screens and the ability to see track four dogs at once on the pro view screen. Highly recommend.

      Great Product All the Way Around!!!
      January 14, 2021
      I'm loving the new Alpha 200i + TT15 GPS Dog Tracking E-Collar Combo. I purchased this with an extra collar for running both of my dogs. Setting up the system and adding the extra collar was a breeze....even for an old guy like me! I love knowing exactly where my dogs are when out in the field or woods; without the need for the annoying loud beeping of some systems. I also love being able to correct either for bad behavior should that be necessary. Seeing the location of both dogs at the same time is easy because of the large screen. Toggling between the two for the training mode is a piece of cake. I was able to name each collar to take the guesswork out of which dog was wearing which collar. The stress of losing sight of my dogs is no longer a part of my hunt or even when just airing them out. I'm so glad I invested in this system given how much more I have invested in my dogs. I'm also very happy that I purchased it from Gun Dog Supply because I know if I ever have a problem, I'll be able to talk with someone who has great product knowledge and wonderful customer service.

      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

      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.

      Loving it
      November 15, 2020
      My Tritronics battery finally died and since I can't get a new one it was the perfect time to upgrade to a gps tracking unit. I can't compare this to the other Garmin units but I am very happy with this and it is great to know exactly where the dog is when he gets out of sight. I have used this on a few hunts already and I am very pleased with the performance. If you want a do it all unit I think you can look no further.
      • So far it works well and does what I need it to.

      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).
      • 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
      • 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

      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.
      • Great screen, excellent interface, very easy to operate the controls.
      • As stated above.
