    @Mike, there are many great GPS collars available in the market, but one of the most popular ones is the Garmin T5X GPS Collar. It has a top-mounted, high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS receiver, so you can track your dog from up to 9 miles away. It also features a rugged design that is water-resistant to 10 meters, making it tough enough to run wherever your dog runs. Additionally, it comes with LED beacon lights that can be activated from your compatible handheld to help keep track of your dog in the field. The T5X also has up to 80 hours of battery life and sleep mode to remotely put the device to sleep, so you can focus on the hunt instead of the next charge. SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence. He comments on all posts flagged as questions. It’s a good idea to also ask a human.

    We really like our dogtra tracking system

    I would imagine that @Chris and @Heath would have some good input

    I run Garmin on my hog dogs and deer dogs but I'm very seriously thinking about trying out the dogtra system. Garmin isn't what it used to be and is almost to expensive for the common dogman anymore

    @Thomas I read “on my hot dogs” at first and thought you were just trying to be funny. Turns out, I found it funny! 😂

    @Anthony which system did you go with and does it have the vibrate feature?

  • Anthony's avatar

    @Mike we have the pathfinder 1. No vibrate on that one. I’m thinking the 2 has it though.

    Mike depends on where you hunt and service available. I prefer the garmin because it works off satellite. The dogtra will require you to have cell service! Good luck.

    @Heath thanks for the info. I’m in southwestern Ohio with hopes to hunt all over the Midwest and plains at some point. I was reading on the dogtra that I had looked up that it had offline maps available. So maybe what you are referring to is the report back from the collar to the phone? Can you clarify?

  • Heath's avatar

    @Mike yes. You can download maps offline but when service is spotty takes time to pull up. I’m the the mountains so I don’t have choice but to use the garmin.
