Customer Review #30984

By: Bill From NV

Hunts. Competes.
I chose Garmin over the other remote release products because I already use the Pro 550 e-collar system and looked forward to have a backup handheld controller.

Because it has two completely different functions, this (to me) is a fairly complicated piece of equipment. This is further complicated because it ships with entirely inadequate instructions. If you purchase this product, you MUST download the online user manual (www.garmin.com/manuals/procontrol). This manual is easy to follow and provides all the instruction you'll need.

In remote release mode, the system works as expected. Sync the receiver to the handheld and you're ready to go. For advanced training, it controls multiple launchers and has a 'rapid launch' feature to simulate a flushed covey or flock.

The training mode may take longer to get used to if you're already using the Pro 550. The PRO Control 2 has four training modes that each offers a different combination of Tone, Vibration, Momentary, and Continuous. Then there are 18 primary intensity settings (Pro 550 has 9). I think this actually gives you MORE variable intensity settings than the Pro 550, but only has two secondary settings (high and low) for each primary intensity instead of Pro 550's three settings (high, medium, low). This will take some experimenting to find similar intensity levels if you're going from one controller to the other.

Going from Release to Training mode and back will take some practice, and I'm not yet convinced it will be worth the time. I really like the Pro 550 and will stick to it for now. But it's nice to know I have a backup if necessary.


Product Rating: 4 out of 5-stars.

The Garmin PRO Control 2 is a durable, easy-to-use, remote launch device for serious dog trainers, field trialers, and hunt testers who require reliable remote control of launchers, releasers, and other accessory items. Many manufacturers in the U.S. and Canada feature training devices that can be operated with the Garmin PRO Control 2, giving you precise control over training situations that simulate hunting and field trial conditions. You'll quickly find that remote release devices are an invaluable aid in improving your dog's skills in the field, whether you are training pointing dogs, retrievers, or flushing dogs.

    Configurations 4 and 5 will take the 18 levels of momentary and continuous stimulation and split them into low and high levels giving you 36 levels of stimulation. The low and high levels will increase in a linear order. That means that a low 1 will be lower than a high 1 but a low 2 will be higher than a high 1. This is an impressive spread of stimulation and will allow you to find the right level for even the most sensitive of dogs.
