Extremely well made. Tri-tronics reliability with Garmin's sense of design. Garmin's first remote training system after purchasing Tri-Tronics gets some feature changes that fix a few issues that folks had with the original.
The Delta XC line adds both long and short contact points, a new stimulation pattern, options to bypass unused multidog features and rapid stimulation level changes if needed.
Features BOTH tone AND vibration. You can use tone as a warning or recall. Vibration works well for silent commands, and with older deaf or hard of hearing dogs.
Small collar/receiver comfortably fits a wide range of dogs from 8 lb. all the way up to 120 lb. dogs.
Small transmitter. Fits nicely in your hand.
Half-mile range works for most folks.
Garmin Delta XC features 18 levels of STIM which means you can hone in and fine tune the correction level that your dog responds to. Works for even the most sensitive dogs.
Multiple modes which means you can customize the button set-up to your preference of training style.
Each dog has an independent STIM level, which makes fast corrections easier.
All in all, the DELTA XC is a great system.
See the DELTA SPORT XC if you need a system with a BARK COLLAR built right in with 36 different STIM levels.
Bird dog folks should also take a look at the Garmin/Tri-tronics DELTA UPLAND XC which has a remote location BEEPER and a BARK COLLAR.
I really like the changes that Garmin has made in the DELTA XC line. They have taken one of our best selling collars and made it even better.

Rapidly increase or decrease the stimulation level:
Rapidly increase or decrease the stimulation level using the new side button feature. Just press and hold to increase multiple levels.
Set the number of dogs on your system:
The Delta XC Series gives you the option of having a one dog unit, a two dog unit or a three dog unit. If you are not running multiple dogs, you can remove this option and only have the dogs on the handheld that you actually have. You can always add the second and third dog options back to the handheld if you add additional dogs down the road.
Long and short contact points:
The original Delta collars came with short probes installed that were not removable or replaceable with long probes. The Delta XC comes with regular (short) probes installed but long probes are also included and can easily be swapped. These are the same probes used on the Gramin PRO units.
New stimulation pattern:
The original Delta units had a stimulation pattern that didn’t match anything that Tri-Tronics had used before. It was much lower on the top end and we ran across a number of dogs that it didn’t work with in high drive situations. To fix this issue, Garmin has made the DELTA XC stimulation pattern match the one in the Garmin PRO systems. Don’t take this to mean that this is a substantially "hotter" collar and it might be too strong for your dog. The low end is still very low, and the middle numbers are also the same. The top end is now what we expect out of a Tri-Tronics system and I don’t expect to see any issues with dogs blowing off the stimulation.
Modified side collar loops for a better fit:
The Delta XC Series has slightly modified collar strap loops that allow the receiver to fit better on dogs with larger necks. These modified loops allow the collar to open wider and place the contact points in a better position on the neck compared to the original Delta collar.
The Garmin Delta XC remote training collar is both simple and effective using proven Tri-Tronics technology. It features a simple, push-button design with an easy-to-read LCD display so you can correct your dog instantly, for a stronger connection between behavior and training.

Use higher levels to stop unwanted chasing or to overcome strong distractions

Garmin Delta XC Range
Up to 1/2 mile range which is ample for off leash dog training or for hunting with medium range field dogs. Actual range depends on training conditions, including weather, terrain, presence of cover, etc.
This is a very versatile e-collar. Great for basic training. It's really nice that you can change the button settings to different commands to suit your needs. Also with two or three dogs on the transmitter you can save the stim levels for each dog so you don't have to adjust the level when you toggle between dogs. Also great range. 1/2 mile.
Very affordable. Able to save stim levels between dogs
If you are use to a traditional transmitter set up, it might take a little getting use to.
Easy to operate

I had an issue with my male.. just one session and was able to correct his issue... I would buy this unit again. As well I found is easy to operate, and was able to change setting very quickly. Gun dog supply is the place to buy as well. They are friendly and can answer your questions.
Highly recommend this product!
See above. It was easy to use and to setup.
Light weight and worked perfectly.. best unit I've ever used

A great Help
November 18, 2020
This product has been very helpful in the training of my two dogs. This is their rookie year at pheasant hunting, and they have been successful. Thank you for this product.
The remote is waterproof - or resistant anyways. So if you get caught out in a storm, you are not throwing away the collars because the remote is toast.
I would like to see a different way of switching between dogs on the remote. I love the color codes so you know which dog you are on, but when you need to switch from one dog to the next in a hurry, it's not so easy. Maybe instead of one button on the side, you could put 3 buttons on the front - also color coded.
So far a good product but could use some improvements
April 13, 2021
I purchased this for tone and vibration and itâ€™s working well, although I doubt it has a half mile range. Also it would be better if it did come with a tester light to check to see if the stimulation mode is working, rather than test on the dog. There is no Tone and a vibration only mode, so an accidental slip of the finger means the dog will get a shock. For this reason it would be nice if it came with a tester light like most e collars do. Was also unable to register the product through Garmin Express - itâ€™s not recognized, so needs to be registered by phone, so that makes me wonder how any product updates could be installed?

Wonderful product worked well on my two alapaha bulldogs. Farming has a great product.

Great training tool

Very sturdy, high quality ecollar. Has great range. Easy to use. Multiple stim levels allows for the perfect amount of correction for your particular dog. I have been able to correct two major issues my pup still had in two sessions. No longer even needed. But will be good to have for future dogs.

I have a "sensitive" lab that doesn't react well with a strong correction, the Garmin Delta allows both the tone and vibrate modes, which with my dog are more than enough. (She was burnt out on e-collars by a "professional" trainer). It works great for her!
Multiple Settings, easy to transition between modes and multiple dogs.

As with everything purchased from Gun Dog Supply - yet another awesome product. Works great, well made, EASY to set up and get working. A special shout out to the excellent customer service at GDS too. Every time I have a question, they are right on it. Love this company. As the owner of a professional dog walking company - we take dogs off leash and train for recall - my clients are always so impressed with the results - they often want a referral to GDS and purchase the products I use. So great to work with a company that is 'on it'!

Works as advertised but donâ€™t expect me to just put it on and go. There is a learning curve Itâ€™s a line of sight device. If you canâ€™t see your dog it wonâ€™t work
Seems well thought out
Remote is a bit confusing. Buttons could be more glove friendly

Gun dog supply has been great to do business with and this collar is a perfect example of this.

The collar is great. Gun Dog Supply is great also. I have bought a number of things from them over the last several years and have never been disappointed. Good to do business with . I have confidence in them to give me the best advice if I need it.
Very effective and easy to use. Very affordable and very durable.

My teenage Daughter has a 9 month old pitbull, He was out of Control running off and chasing cats! Within 1 week he has made a turn around after training with this product! All we do is hit the beep and he stops what he is doing Instantly!

Needed a way to control two English setters in the field and this worked perfectly. The collars are easy to setup and it does. It require a big learning curve. There is an collar option with a bark limiter but thatâ€™s a different collar so please make sure you carefully examine the collar you want.
Great range, easy to learn, easy to use, charge lasts a very long time
I can't think of any.
Exceptional customer service
November 3, 2020
I purchsed the 2 dog Ecollar system and discovered that it really was not what I needed. I called and explained the issue to a very friendly, courteous staff member. She told me to send it back and refunded my money online almost immediately. Although I returned the item I was impressed with the prompt customer service and will certainly use Gun Dog Supply in the future and will recommend them to my friends
I likke this collar but....
October 31, 2020
The first 11 settings on this collar are almost nonexistent. My dog doesn't feel anything until I get to 12. After 12 the shock curve goes up exponentially. It's a little hard to find the sweet spot between to much and not enough. This is my second collar, and I do like the design a lot. It is very ergonomic and easy to use, but they do need to straighten out the stimulation pattern. My first one wasn't strong enough and was ineffective when my dog was in drive. They seemed to have corrected that, but the stim pattern still needs work.
Ergonomic, easy to use

Weâ€™ve been using Garmin Tri Tronic collars for many years with our field dogs. This was an upgrade purchase, and weâ€™re pleased with the new system. Iâ€™m also pleased and grateful with the service and the focus on customers with Gun Dog Supply. Itâ€™s a real family business, and Steve and the staff extend that feeling to everyone. Great product, great service.

September 10, 2020
I made the mistake of purchasing an inexpensive $45 training collar on the internet. It was not well made and was unreliable in the stimulations it delivered. This made me lose my confidence as a dog owner/trainer.
Do yourself a favor and purchase a well made on like this Garmin Delta XC. It feels good in my hands, works consistently, and gives me the confidence I need to train my dog correctly.
The directions could have been a little better but all in all it's an A+ product.
Gun Dog Supply provided a great DVD on training your dog to the eCollar with this purchase. This was super helpful too.
September 4, 2020
purchased this collar for our 10 month old rescue 2 weeks after he joined our family. He was not interested in treats and has a very high prey drive. Off leash walks were impossible as he would take off at the first fresh scent. Since we have been training with the garmin delta he is a different dog and works with us on our homestead. The remote and collar are both well built and fully waterproof(we live on a river and he swims daily, i have been swimming with the remote in my pocket), intuitive to use, and long lasting battery life, I have charged the remote twice since I started using it and charge the collar every other night or so even though it could probably last longer. (Led makes it easy to tell when it is getting low)
The options on the remote change the function of each button allowing you to access any three functions(tone, vibrate, momentary stim, continuous stim) at a time. Adjusting the intensity is easy with separate up and down buttons on the side. This makes it easy to step up a level if the dog is so focused he doesn't respond to your normal baseline.
My only minor gripes are that there is no way to access all 4 functions in one training mode, and that i wish I could turn the LED on the collar on from the remote to make keeping track of the dog easier in darkness but these are things I knew when I purchased so I'm just looking for things to put as a con. If i was buying again I might step up to the sport for bark limiter and the additional quarter mile range I have not used the multi collar functions.
Multiple training modes and stim levels
Fully waterproof collar and remote
Long lasting batteries
intuitive to use
Raised center button-easy to find the right function without looking at your hand when you need to pay attention to the dog.
Cannot access all 4 stim options(tone, vibrate, momentary, continuous) without swapping between training modes because only 3 of the 4 are available in a training mode.
Great product and service

A friend loaned me one of these collars. It worked so well in getting my dog to quit chasing cars, I knew I had to have one,
I am well pleased, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who asks.
Easy to set up, use and understand. 3 different methods to 'control' with.
Changed and saved my girl’s life!
July 15, 2020
At 8 weeks, our girl was extremely owner aggressive. We would go many rounds a day with her snarling, lunging, and viscously biting me. I would grab her by the back of the neck, take her down on the floor, hold her down until she would submit, and as soon as she would get up, she would attack again. Vet told me if we cannot get a trainer for aggressive dogs, she would have to be euthanized. There were none for hours around our area. I had put up with the daily attacks for a month. A friend suggested the collar, felt she was worth it to try. When the collar came in, I read up on it and watched videos while it was charging. When it was ready, I put it on her and sure enough, did not take long before I had to use it (I already found the level she needed). She attempted 2 attacks that night. We woke up the next morning to a new girl. A very happy, calm, zero-stressed girl! She has not tried to attack since the first night of the collar, and that was 5 months ago! She has become the perfect girl, very well behaved. At our vets recommendation, we just got the girl a friend, A boy larger than her. We were delighted to learn he was trained with the exact collar we used. He is another very well behaved dog! I Have never had a problem training dogs before, never needed the collar, but this literally saved the life of my girl and possibly saved my life from a mauling.
Has been turned off during their play a couple of times
