Rated 5 out of 5 by AZBirdHunter Great Combo Collar
I bought the system with two collars. Took a little practice to use the training buttons without looking at them compared to my TriTronics Pro 100. Great peace of mind if you want to know where your dogs are all all times. Have used a lot of other Garmin handheld GPS systems including Rino and GPS60 so found it pretty intuitive. Regularly put on the dogs with their regular collar and have had no issue with collars shutting down. I do put the collars on so the contacts are pointing away from the other collar. I keep the software updated as new versions are released. Minor issue is the collars will not update software off a Mac. Works fine to download track and update software in handheld. I have owned and used for a little over a year. Would definitely buy again. Wish they had a single unit which would included functionality of Rino and Alpha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ARHunter110 works great
collar is everything i expected and more!! i use it mainly for coon hunting i like having a trainer and tracker all in one. less to have to carry around. collar is very durable, it has to be to stand up to coon hunting its made it through the thickets and the swamps. i like that you can turn the lights on on the collar from the hand held.
when I'm not coon hunting I'm deer hunting which I use the hand held for marking tree stands or finding your way out after dark
I saw the other review about the collar getting turned off I dont know if garmin has changed something about the collar but i have not had that problem and my dog always has another collar on
I have to hold the button down for a little bit for it to go off not had any problems with the compass I'm saying anything about the other guy, I'm just telling you my experience, hope it helps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Steve925 Leaves a lot to be desired
I have used several TriTronics collars and Garmin automobile GPS receivers, so I was anxious to get one of these. I used it all of last hunting season and have some definite opinions about it.
When it works, it is pretty cool. I have a pointer and finding her in heavy cover when she is pointing is a real challenge. With this unit, I can see that she is 57 feet to the northeast, for instance. I follow the arrow on the screen until I find her.
There are several problems however. The collar turns itself off sometimes. I read an article about the collar that said that if the dog is wearing another collar, they can bump together in a way to turn off the Alpha. I have tried taking off her ID collar when hunting and that appears to have solved that problem.
Another problem is that the handheld unit keeps forgetting where North is. This means that when it points to the dog, it is pointing the wrong direction. You can recalibrate it in the field, but that takes a minute or two and is a hassle. TriTronics said to reset the unit, but that didn't help. It still loses calibration sometimes.
I feel that the wire antenna is too long. It keeps banging around on brush in the field and makes it so the dog cannot have the collar on when around the car or people because it bangs into them. I am an upland game hunter, so I don't need a 7-mile range. I would rather have a 1-mile range and much shorter antenna.
I do like the belt clip. It is a very convenient way to carry it for quick access. I also have a lanyard looped around my belt so that it cannot get lost.
I like the peace and quiet of hunting without constant the beeping of a beeper collar, but there is some frustration with this collar too.
