Garmin ALPHA 300i Handheld Only
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 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 â€śsleep modeâ€ť that allows you to put the collar to â€śsleepâ€ť 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 â€śawake modeâ€ť. 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 â€śsleep/wakeâ€ť mode. I want others to know this limitation as well.
This system is working very well
Sleep/Wake mode limitations as described in my comments
