    The Garmin Alpha 100 with TT15 collar enhances the original Alpha tracking and training system with some new features:

  • Top mounted high sensitivity GPS / GLONASS Receiver for increased signal reception

    The TT 15 collars now have the ability to pick up both GPS and GLONASS satellites. GLONASS is the Russian version of USAs GPS satellites. What this means is that there are now more satellites that your system can pick up. This will get you better and faster reception. The DC 50 collars have had this feature for the last year and it works great.

  • Non-stimulating Vibration

    Add a new Non Stim communication to your training. The TT15 collars now have vibration along with tone. You can use Vibration to teach a silent recall or most any other command that you choose, or use it as a warning prior to stimulation.

  • Track Alpha TT15 and TT10 collars PLUS the new Astro T5 Collars

    The new Astro T5 and Alpha TT 15 collars have the ability to be tracked by either the Astro 430 handheld or the Alpha 100 handheld.

    This now lets Alpha users who need a system they can use in competitions legally run T5 tracking collars. Alpha users that do not need ALL of their collars to be training collars can add T5 collars to their Alpha system and use them to only track dogs.

  • VIRB Control on the TT15 Collar lets you start or stop VIRB video recording with the Alpha handheld (VIRB camera not included)

    Folks that want to film their dogs in action can add Garmin VIRB cameras and use the Alpha handheld to control some of the camera features.

  • 1 Year FREE Subscription to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery

    Get a chance to try out the Birds Eye satellite imagery for free in your new Alpha handheld. This software gives you the ability to see your dog both on the standard topo map and also using satellite images. It adds a whole new dimension to seeing your dog.

  • EMERGENCY ALERT lets you send your location and an emergency alert message to other Alpha users in the area

    When Garmin bought Tri-tronics, we knew an all-in-one GPS / Ecollar system was coming, and the result was the Garmin ALPHA: A GPS tracking collar by Garmin with an E-Collar from Tri-Tronics.

    Track and train from a single screen. One handheld. One collar.

    The Garmin ALPHA improves upon the GPS features of the best-selling Garmin Astro and combines them with the functionality of the best Tri-tronics dog training collars.

    GPS Improvements include faster update rates, touch screen, longer battery life, rescue mode, "buddy" tracking, tracking up to 20 dogs, and my personal favorite - the direction option in the Compass screen.

    E-collar improvements give you the full functionality of a $500 remote trainer for only $250 more than the price of the Astro alone. You can either recreate your favorite Tri-tronics e-collar or build a custom set-up with the perfect stimulation types and settings for each one of your dogs.

    And there's a new user interface with the touch screen. Instead of using toggle switches to change dogs, and intensity dials to select stimulation levels, the touchscreen interface lets you customize your ALPHA collar as much or as little as you want.

    All-in-one, combination products tend to be the worst of both worlds. Seldom does combining two products into one lead to a piece of gear that's as good as either of the originals.

    Fortunately, the Garmin ALPHA is more than just a GPS and an e-collar stuck together.

    A lot of work went into designing the ALPHA resulting in an elegant system with very intuitive controls. The folks at Garmin were very responsive to our feedback in what we wanted in a COMBO system.

    The end result? Not only will consolidating GPS + dog training collars into a single system save time, space, and money -- the ALPHA will make hunting and running your dogs a lot more fun.

    I hope you enjoy this review. Please drop me a line with any questions or comments. -- Steve

  • Transcript from Steve's Video:

    This is the Garmin Alpha. The Garmin Alpha is a GPS e-collar combo system. Garmin took all the Tri-Tronics technology and incorporated it into their dog tracking systems. So now we have one system that can allow you to track your dog and use it as your remote trainer.

    Pretty sophisticated compared to anything we've seen before. From a GPS standpoint it is everything that the Astro is plus a little bit more. It comes with a 100K topo map built into it. It comes with a faster update rate. The Astro is a neat system, but it doesn't quite stand up to the changes that they've made with the Alpha.

    A big difference in the Alpha is that it is a touchscreen. So, very few remote controls. You have an on/off switch and then you have stim buttons for your e-collar. But the rest of the thing is touchscreen. So you just go through and pick the screens that you want. You can jump back between your map and your compass really fast.

    What's nice about the touchscreen on Garmin units is that they are glove friendly. Pretty much any set of gloves that I've been using we've been able to use the touchscreen without a problem.

    Same basic concept as far as operation. You have your collar. Picks up the signal from the satellites. And then it sends that signal back to the handheld. Now, the difference with the Alpha is because it is an e-collar you are also going to be sending signals from the handheld to the collar. So that allows some long-range communication between the two that we have not had before. You can make changes to the setup of the system while the dog is wearing the collar at a distance. That can come in real handy if you have to change identity codes. You can also change update rates.

    The e-collar on the Garmin Alpha is ad as advanced as anything Tri-Tronics has ever made. It's got up to 18 stim levels. It has continuous and momentary, plus it has tone. You can allow it to train up to 20 dogs from one handheld. It's got the light feature similar to the tracer lights. You can control it from the handheld and turn your lights on and off. You can make the flash or make them glow solid. It has short and long contact points.

    The e-collar on the Garmin Alpha is very sophisticated in that you can set different levels for different dogs. You can have different stimulation types for different dogs. You can have some dogs on momentary, some dogs on continuous. You can also change it on the fly. So if you need all sorts of types of stimulation for your dog, you can raise and lower the level, you can change it at the transmitter as needed.

    Three buttons across the top are what control the stimulation. You can either have it where it's one button per dog, so you can have three different buttons on the handheld and then you can scroll over to your next three if you are running six, nine, 12 dogs. You can move back and forth. If you are only running one dog then you can take each button and customize it for that particularly dog. You want to have a low level on one button, and then a medium level on the middle button, and then a higher level on your right button? Real simple to do. You can set it up to fit however you train your dog.

    This is the Alpha TT-10. It is a combination of several concepts that Garmin has developed over the years with the DC-20, DC-30, and DC-40 collars. Anyone that's had a DC-30 will notice that they've gone back to a top-mounted GPS receiver. We found that that works really well.

    The collar strap is not part of the unit in that it's more along the lines of a traditional Tri-Tronics design. It threads through the loops on the collar. And then we have a piece here that connects the GPS antenna. Collar slides through that. We've got 10 different colors so that you can identify collars differently. We change them out for you. It's really simple to move from collar to collar.

    You've got removable contact points. It comes with the regulars installed. We also have the long contact points.

    These are your light features across the front here. So when you are using your tracer light that's where the light comes off of.

    Very tough design. My favorite thing that they changed is the antenna. They went to a cable style antenna and these things are incredibly tough. We're a good six or eight months in now. I have yet to have one break. They are just really tough. A little bit longer, too, than what we've had before. We're getting some more range out of it.

    With the Garmin Alpha you have several different update rate choices. The update rate is the time in between radio signals that are sent from the collar to your handheld. A faster update rate will give you more information as to where your dog is and what he's doing, but it will also burn your battery up a little bit faster.

    I run my Alpha on a 2 1/2 second update rate, and typically I see about 24 hours of runtime. You also have the option of a five second, a 10 second, a 30 second, and a two minute update. What those updates they will do is they will lengthen the battery life of the collar but they will give you less information.

    I find most people prefer to have more information and charge their collar on a more regular basis. Every time I run my collar, the night I am through I charge it up to get a full charge for the next day.

    Using a DC-50 tracking collar with the Alpha 100 handheld is possible, but can be a little tricky to configure.

    First, you must pair each DC-50 you want to track with an Astro 430 handheld in order to view the "track code" for each DC-50 collar (see screenshots below). Once you have each code, it can be shared or entered into your Alpha 100, allowing you to now track that DC-50 collar. Each DC-50 collar will have its own unique track code.

    Stimulation Levels, Vibration and Tone

    ALPHA has the consistent stimulation levels that Tri-Tronics has used for years.

    Garmin has given us two different ways to select/label stimulation levels.

    TRADITIONAL STIM -- The first is called "Traditional" and matches the 6 levels Tri-Tronics now uses with each level having a low, medium and high for a total of 18 levels. This will allow folks to exactly match the stimulation setups of any of the Tri-Tronics collars.

    LINEAR STIM -- If you prefer a slightly faster way to raise and lower levels with the ALPHA, then I recommend the "Linear" stimulation setup. It gives you 18 levels that exactly matches the low, medium and high levels that TT uses in its Pro series collars.

    AUDIO TONE -- We also have the exact same tone so if you dog has been trained with it, there shouldn't be any issues. We are also pleased that the ALPHA tone is a good bit louder than we have seen from TT collars lately.

    VIBRATION -- Garmin has added Vibration as an additional non-stimulation option on the TT15 collar.

    Additional Uses

      While the Garmin ALPHA is designed for the hunting dog, many of our customers that don't hunt but enjoy spending time outdoors with their dogs and allowing them to run off leash will find the ALPHA incredibly useful.

      The Garmin ALPHA is perfect when your dog is not by your side. Hiking, camping, horseback riding or bike riding, the Garmin ALPHA will allow your dogs more freedom but allow you to keep a close eye on them and help you locate them if they get lost. Since the Garmin ALPHA serves as a full-featured handheld GPS unit, it will keep you from getting lost, too.

    Garmin ALPHA 100 + TT15 Combo Batteries

      Collar Battery

    • Rechargeable and user replaceable Li-ion Battery
    • 24 to 48 hour run time depending on update rate

      Collar Battery Runtime:

      ~24 hours with 2.5 second update rate
      ~34 hours with 5 second update rate
      ~38.5 hours with 10 second update rate
      ~42.5 hours with 30 second update rate
      ~48 hours with 120 second update rate

      Charging Clip

    • Comes with a snap-on charging clip w/ dual lead charger
    • Charge a collar and handheld at the same time.
    • RED light = collar is charging.
    • GREEN light = when fully charged.

    • Handheld Battery

    • Rechargeable 3.7v Li-ion
    • Runtime: between 16-20 hours

    Garmin ALPHA 100 + TT15 Combo Range

      The Garmin ALPHA transmitter and receiver have a "line of sight" range of up to 9 miles using the included long-range antenna.

      The ALPHA communicates using a VHF radio signal between the Dog GPS collar and the Handheld GPS unit, so to get the full range out of a system there should be nothing between the transmitter and the receiver.

      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.

    Garmin ALPHA GPS Maps

  • Includes free 100K TOPO map and 1 year subscription to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery
  • Supports optional map data -- TOPO U.S. 24K, autorouting with City Navigator, and Garmin Custom Maps

    Garmin Alpha 100 tracking and training
    July 22, 2020
    I have used the Alpha 100 since it originally came out with the TT10 collar. This has been a top of the line GPS for myself and tracking my dogs. The built in ecollar has reduced the number of collars you have to put on your dog's neck and the number of handheld devices you must carry in the field. This is best best for trashbreaking and recall. I also use the handheld for every other type of hunting or outdoor adventure I may have.
    Proslarge screen with multiple purpose functionality
    Consnot practical for every day obedience training.
    By Luke
    Great product
    September 2, 2020
    This unit works great. Helps me keep my dogs away from the highway. Also dont have to worry about my coonhound coming back when hunting......always know where he is. Gundogsupply is a great company to work shipping!!!

    Impressed with the gps quality
    September 1, 2020
    Collar picks up quickly and updates often as dog is traveling. Great options for correction too with tone, vibrate, and stimulation.
    ProsVery responsive and great tracking. Like the screen lock function.
    ConsClip on remote is tough to use. Would like the option to lock the correction function.
    By tim
    Really great tool for tracking and training
    October 1, 2020
    Have not had the Garmin a super long time yet, but I am finding it to be a super tool for bird hunting in both conifers, aspen, and beach with Grouse and in lower growth for Pheasant. I would not use it as a daily training collar that you want to use on a regular daily basis.
    ProsFor hunting, always know where your dog is, where he is heading, the speed he is going, the area he is tracking. Can do this with multiple dogs as well
    ConsExpensive, The normal collar is just livable for my 50 pound setter. It will fit smaller dogs, but I think the mini might be a better fit.

    I purchase my Alpha 100 with TT 15 and was pleased with the ease of initial set up and use. I will be using it this fall on my started pup this fall. I look forward to the peace of mind it will give me when I’m out in the woods, I will be able to know where my pup is at all times, and make minor corrections when necessary.

    September 17, 2020
    Over the years I have had numerous hunting dogs, all German Shorthairs. During that time I have also used different products to help in keeping track of the dogs in field, most were some kind of beeper collar.

    About three or four years back I decided to try the GPS style unit and glad I did. Although they're not perfect they sure make things a lot easier. Wish I had bought this back when I had three dogs in the field almost all the time.

    I'm not into all the high tech stuff available with the unit but it does what I need it for, keeping track of my pointer.

    nice unit, relatively easy to operate. Don't be too intimidated by the interface, it isn't that hard. I haven't used it for training yet but it will probably be adequate for a casual, every day handler.
    ProsLot of nice features and it is awesome to be able to monitor where your dog is by using the GPS.
    ConsA lot of nice features! So that means there is a little bit of learning to do when using the unit.

    Great Tracking Collar!

    This a great tool for training and keeping track of your dog in the field. In my case, the north woods.
    Gun Dog Supply's typical great price and service sealed the deal.
    ProsIt works great! The basic functions are easy to figure out and use. I sync'd it with my hunting buddy's Alpha 100. Should he or I ever lose a control unit, the other unit can help find it. Best of all we can keep track of each other if we're hunting in different parts of the woods.
    ConsThere's so many features that it'll take some time to figure them all out. Some I probably won't use.

    So far this unit is packed with great features not as intimidating as when first out of the box. Became easier to use as I played with it.
    ProsPlenty of informational videos explaining what I didn?t understand to help get me through some operations
    ConsNo real good way to secure carrying the unit would prefer a metal belt clip than the back bone they have, a bit expensive to chance loosing it. I believe I solved the problem for my self.

    This was my third Astro, the first one with the training feature in it. As always Garman products it was easy to set up, and works exactly as you expected to. A great product well serviced through Gun Dog Supply who were great to do business with.

    Review for Garmin Alpha 100 with TT15 COMBO (1-dog GPS System)
    October 19, 2018
    I have had this system for about three months. Have used it in the field for training while trying to learn the various features before hunting season. I like the tracking feature using the compass. It has many bells and whistles that I doubt I will ever use, like finding nearby restaurants. I plan on downloading better maps before going to KS. It takes a bit of getting used to, especially changing the level of correction. The only negative I have experienced is the amount of time it takes to get the collar and handheld communicating with each other. I live around a lot of trees and it doesn't seem to work too well in the trees. But my hunting will be on the plains so expect it will do fine. I would recommend it for the tracking.

    I don't care for the long antennae. It seems like to takes a very long time to charge the transmitter.
    It came with a black collar instead of the orange collar I had to buy extra.

    Instant notification when my dog is out of site. I know immediately what the dog is up to. It eliminates the need to call the dog back because you don't know where or what is going on. My biggest fear is to lose my dog while hunting. This unit eliminates that fear. There are features in this collar I will probably never need to use. The screen is very easy to view even in bad light. I like the vibrate mode on the collar as my dog responds very well to it when activated. I have not and to not intend to use the stimulation mode and have removed the prongs and placed the plastic cover in their place.
    Very pleased with the collar and the fine people at Gun Dog Supply.

    Only problem I have with the system is I think we have to many Garmin collars in our area. We have up to two hundred or more in 10 to 15 mile radius. At times we have trouble with collar linking up with alpha and having problems during the hunt tracking dog. Have any suggestions?

    I live in mountainous terrain, and keeping line-of-sight is not possible; however the Garmin TT15 maintained contact with my dog. I was able to track my dog over hills, and deep into ravines. I was quite surprised at how well this GPS performed.

    It needs a little bit of work with the interface and usability. It's great for tracking but the handling end leaves a bit to be desired. All in all it's a very nice product so far. But it could use some improvement.

    I was against shock collars for years but I have changed my tune. It shorten the training time greatly and does not harm the dog. I use a tone for the come command when the dog is out of sight. I use vibrate to get his attention for hand commands and I use the shock for sit and to get his attention for commands. The tracking is a great feature. It was the best training tool I have come across in 30+ years.

    This product is very nice for tracking multiple dogs and making corrections in the field. I would have rated it 5 stars, but I think the feature for handeling multiple pointing dogs could be improved. Too much time is wasted if needing to increase stimulation levels. Vs the traditional dogtra or Tri tronics products, regardless of how you have the handheld setup. But if wanting to consolidate tracking and training collars into 1 this is the best on the market!
