    Garmin ALPHA 300 Handheld Only

    Steve Says:

    The new Garmin Alpha 300 and Alpha 300i handhelds are the exact same unit except the 300i has inReach capability.

    These new GPS dog-tracking handhelds are very similar in look and feel to the Alpha 200 models. It's the same case, size, and setup, but the 300 and 300i have new features to make them more user-friendly than the 200.

    The Alpha 300 series have a better battery life, a better screen, and a better charging system.

    The 300 series also has the ability to use WiFi to update both the handheld and collars, and the new menu interface is easier to use.

    The Alpha 300 and 300i can track and train up to 20 dogs. The fastest fixed update rate is 2.5 seconds, but when using the new dynamic tracking, it'll automatically adjust the update rate based on your dog's activity. Less movement = longer update rate.

    The Alpha 300 and 300i offer multiple map options including TOPO maps, Birdseye Direct satellite imagery, HuntView pre-programmed micro-SD cards, and Garmin Outdoor Maps+ (available by subscription).

    They have 18 levels of continuous and momentary stimulation plus non-stimulating vibration and tone options. You can create custom setups for each dog, letting you set different stimulation levels based on each of your dog's needs.

    New Features on the Alpha 300:
  • 50-55 hours of run time on one full charge
  • USB-C charging port
  • Update handheld and collars using WiFi
  • Improved menu interface
  • Clearer, more detailed screen
  • Compatible with Garmin Outdoor Maps+ subscription service, which includes HuntView maps
  • Channel View allows you to see what collars are being used and what channel they're on

    I use the 300 with my two GSPs. Works perfectly so far for training and tracking. Durable, nice weight when hooked to you, great battery life, quick connect time with satellites and TT25 collars. Would buy again if ever needed another and have suggested to others that have now changed over to the Garman 300.
    Pros
    • Quick access time. Great battery life. Well made.
    Cons
    • None.

    Great system but be aware….
    July 23, 2023
    I have lost dogs for many days (without usage of a gps collar) and am very aware and appreciative of the longer battery life of this new collar to allow for long search times if needed. This system has a mode called “sleep mode” that allows you to put the collar to “sleep” and consume far less battery power. It is meant to be used when you are not actively tracking your dog. When you want to begin tracking your dog again you enter the “awake mode”. The issue that I confirmed with GARMIN helpline is that you must be in RF antenna sight line to wake the collar up. It is not commanded to wake via GPS. If you hunt in hilly country as I do it is likely that the dog will be out of RF range and therefore the collar will be stuck in sleep mode and useless to track your dog. The GARMIN product manual does not make it clear whether this mode is commanded via RF or GPS antenna. If it were via GPS then there would be very little limitation putting the collar into awake mode. As it stands I will not be using “sleep/wake” mode. I want others to know this limitation as well.
    Pros
    • This system is working very well
    Cons
    • Sleep/Wake mode limitations as described in my comments

    After watching a few videos I was able to set up my handheld to collar. I did not find it intuitively obvious how to set things up, and the system allows for way more functionality than I will ever use. The problem is, there really is no middle of the road solution, especially when I wanted to be able to evenutually connect to 3 dogs. I use it daily and it works very well. I use it to see where my dog is on the GPS as my farm is rolling with wood. I use 3 modes of vibrate, momentary, and continuous but rarely need more than vibrate. I really like being able to turn a blinking light on the collar so I can see the dogs in the dark. Like I said, there's so much more functionality that I will never use.

    Compact
    Some components are clear but some are not as the directions are not simple especially for a person not familiar with a handheld
    A simple and clear manual would be good
    I get help from my son because he has one for his dog
    Pros
    • Compact
    • Well made
    • Charge time excellent

    Great Hunting Tool
    July 16, 2024
    This has proven to be s great tool for both training and hunting. With the three types of correction it offers a great range of options.
    Pros
    • Unit is waterproof. It is durable and has fantastic range, It offers tone, vibrate, and stim. Two antennas for different applications. Very accurate and quick GPS tracking. Works great for multiple dogs
    Cons
    • There are so many features I have to keep on top of remembering the best way to toggle through them all. Not a difficult unit to use though, just takes some time to learn it

    Alpha 300 is a great system for anybody who hunts with their best friend. Never have to worry about where my dog is or what he’s doing. This is also the only e collar I’ve used where I’m not questioning whether or not my dog is actually receiving a correction when necessary. Have had multiple other systems and this one takes the cake. I run labs on waterfowl and upland game 50+ days a season.

    The Alpha 300 Handheld is the best unit for training and also tracking my dog Stella. I never leave home without this important tool. I also subscribe to Garmin for GPS and also emergency services in the back country. A1 Rating.

    July 16, 2024
    The ALPHA 300 was a major upgrade from the ALPHA 100. I hunt with multiple people that track each others packs individually and the 300 makes that easy. Screen clarity is great also. Highly recommend it.
    Pros
    • Nice screen that's visible in direct light.
    • Battery life is way better than older models.
    • Group options that allow you to switch between dogs being tracked.
    • Train features are more easily accessible.
    Cons
    • None so far.

    Easy to set up and operate.
    July 16, 2024
    I haven't had much of a chance to put the collar through a lot of testing yet. But if you are familiar with other Garmin products it was amazingly easy to add the collar and customize the buttons. This unit is going to be a real asset for dog training and give me that piece of mind that I can always locate my dog.
    Pros
    • Easy to get the whole package up and running.
    Cons
    • Expensive

    Top of the line training/tracking unit
    July 16, 2024
    I bought the Alpha with the intent to use it for training my Brittany but also for use when we go hunting out west and it has done nothing but impress me over and over again. I've used the Alpha 300 for a week straight without recharging (using it for a few hours of hunting each day) and it never died. It's always comforting being able to know exactly where my dog is and the 9 mile range is impressive. It's also built for the outdoors, I've had it in rain, snow and have fallen in a river with it and just simply rinsed it off and kept going. When you want something you can rely on for your dogs go with the Alpha. We spend a lot of money on our dogs and though the Alpha is not cheap it's a good insurance to ensure you are always able to find your dog and potentially save them if they end up in a bad situation while out hunting (encounter with a coyote, porcupine, snake, bear, traps, etc).
    Pros
    • Reliable, long ranging, extremely long battery life, very customizable, durable.
    Cons
    • Pricey, but it's top of the line and worth it as a bit of extra

    Not a single regret from buying my garmin alpha 300. This device is very trustworthy when it comes to knowing where my dogs are at all times when I’m out hunting. All the little accessories within the device help out with any situation whether you’re training or hunting and with a long last battery life, that just makes it even better.
    Pros
    • Being able to connect to other garmin devices
    Cons
    • NONE

    Using for my peace of mind
    June 29, 2024
    We purchased some acreage that borders a state forest. I was having to chain my young Boykin while we were there since she kept wandering into the woods. With this I am able to let her roam and keep track of where she is and know if she is returning when I whistle. The first night we camped there, one of the horses decided to leave the temporary corral and go on a walkabout. Now they wear the collars at night. Also when the wife goes for a solo ride, I can keep track of her so I can find her if necessary.
    Pros
    • Good range in the pine forest. Accuracy is excellent. Extended battery packs work well.
    Cons
    • The training feature of the collar is more difficult to use than a dedicated training collar due to the locations of the controls on the receiver.
