The GarminT5 GPS Collar is the extra tracking only collar for the Garmin ALPHA GPS Dog Tracking system. This collar allows you to track a dog up to 7 km’s in range. The Garmin ALPHA 100 Dog Tracker is able to track up to 20 dogs (extra T5 Collars). This collar is fully waterproof IPX7 rating (up to 1 metres under water). It also has a 4 hours fast charge user replaceable battery .
The Rescue Mode increases the amount of time before a collar battery dies. This allows more time to find and recover the dog. This mode can be activated automatically or manually. When it is manually activated, the collar’s update rate will drop to every 2 minutes to ping the ALPHA handheld to extend the battery life. The Rescue Mode stays on until it is turned off. When the battery of the collar drops to 25%, it will be activated automatically.
