GPS / Tracking collars.

Recommended Posts

its not in any great detail very basic but does the job im near sure you can buy up grades for it but to tell you the truth you dont look at the map that offten your more dependent on the compass system as thats the one that tells you the direction and distance to head in

Thanks for the info mate, would you say there is much advantage in the newer model, other than the marking down point thing.

It wasn't about hounds mate, and not really about situations in which you can blow a horn, or really much use it it back tracks to you. If that makes any sense? It was initially stuck in the lurcher section.

Ah right i wouldnt really like my lurcher's going on that far that i would need a tracking collar they do go on abit sometimes with the hounds but usualy come looking for me after 10 min's if they have missed :thumbs:

Yer, I meant more like, before the ban, daytime, when a dog does one into large forestry type blocks, after something, and catches it, but its too large to retrieve, and no one has a fecking clue where it is. Might be handy in such situations to have a magic box? Just wondered if anyone had used one in the past and if so what.

hi robert

I think the 200 series r ok for working underground (as in hound marking but like body lenght in, but 200 ain't gps,) the 300 series garmin doesn't it loses it's gps also in thick woodland it loses it's gps, and when yr dog/hound is in 1 place long enough it says tree'd. this is what i've heard from lads who use them in u.k

Only issue I'd have with using a smart phone as a receiver is loss of 3G which would slow things up,surely a dedicated receiver would be far more reliable?
