Tracks Up To 20 Dogs Or Buddies From Up To 7km’s Away
With preloaded Garmin Topo Australia & New Zealand Lite maps.
An invaluable tool in the field, the Alpha 100 helps you achieve optimum performance from your sporting dogs. This easy-to-use integrated handheld system allows you to track and train your dogs in the field at a range of up to 7 km away, delivering their exact position as often as every 2.5 seconds.
This is the Australian Communication and Media Authority (ACMA) radio frequency compliant version, and will not work with illegal grey imported units.
The 3″ glove-friendly touchscreen pinpoints your dog’s location, and it comes preloaded with Garmin Topo Australia and New Zealand Lite maps, which include 40m contours and non-routable street and topo data for AU/NZ.

Measures Dogs’ Speed & Distance Traveled
With tone and vibration alerts.
Measure each dog’s speed, distance and the direction being traveled. Plus, receive notifications when a dog is “Treed” or “On Point”.
The T 5 dog device with collar is a top-mounted, high-sensitivity GPS/GLONASS receiver that uses LED beacon lights activated from the Alpha 100. The lights work in low light conditions and at night, and are visible for up to 100 yards away.
Rugged and water resistant to 10 meters, this tracking dog device is tough enough to run wherever your dog runs, up to 7 km’s away.

Setup Virtual Boundaries
With alerts if your dog goes out of bounds.
Don’t wait till your dog is lost or in danger to get him back. Setup virtual boundaries on your map and receive an alert if they stray out of your geofence so you can recall them right away.
You can also switch to Rescue Mode to prolong the battery life. When the T5 reaches approximately 25 percent battery life, it will automatically slow down the update rate at which it pings Alpha 100 from every 2.5 seconds to every 2 minutes. This mode conserves the battery life of the T5, giving you more time to search for and locate your dog.
The collar also includes LED beacon lights, controlled by the Alpha 100 handheld for low light conditions or night use; visible up to 100 yards.
