Default New garmin tracker?

Any word on garmin coming out with something new this year? I'm in the market for a new one but I know as soon as I get the alpha 100 they will introduce the alpha 200. So I want to make sure they are not planning on something new

Rest assured that they will come out with something new now that I have bought two Alpha bundles. I like the mini collars, even for big dogs.

I think the next thing down the pipe is built in cameras....I traded my astro, dc-40's and tri-tron trash breakers in for the alpha and tt15 mini's......LOVE them!!.....my only wish would be the ability to turn them on/off with the alpha.....

They won't take 220s, but will give 100 for dc 30s and 120 for dc40s at outdoor dog supply store credit.

Going to be hard to think of a system to upgrade to past the alpha 100, they had to buy tritronics to create that system. Besides a shock and GPS tracker, there's not much to improve on I'd think? I do like the bark indicators on the tt15s though. We killed a few more bucks this year by that feature.

Omni gonna have to step it up to compete with Garmin. Right off the bat they cant tone, shock, or vibrate a collar. So Id have to buy a seperate collar again.

All you have to do is download Garmin basecamp onto a tablet, hook ur USB to your alpha for a bigger screen, pretty easy. Several small companies are marketing tablets already set up to do this now.

The Omni is junk from the overall opinion of the testers that I heard. Outrageous use of data and constantly dropping service. They just don't have the tech infrastructure to even try and compete with Garmin but I applaud their effort.

If you're on FB then search for garmin astro and alpha users group and I think the directions are listed there. Rumor is garmin is about to come out with a more affordable one though.

I'm waiting to see if they introduce something new myself. Fixing to bite the bullet on a new system. The tri-tronics and wildlife materials stuff has seen it's better day in the briars.

i got the alpha touchscreen in december and love it. i can use it without taking off my gloves. i got the tt15 minis too. my dogs like them a lot better too. the collars have a blinking light which is good if you run at night too. i can get a full day out of them with a full charge.

Default Garmin Alfa 100

It would be nice if they would make the lettering where you could adjust em (larger) where you could read em better.....what I`m referring to is the dog distance on map page and when you tap a road the read out at top of page (right side) would be a little larger. I recently went to contacts to read it better and to get away from foggy glasses when tracking.
