“When outdoors with your dogs, your activity will change, but one thing remains constant—the need to quickly determine their location and help keep them safe. The Alpha 10 provides outdoor enthusiasts with a unique dog tracking and training solution for various situations,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Dogs are our best friends, but the Alpha 10 will be your closest companion in the outdoors whether you are hiking, hunting or just outside exploring with your dog. Additionally, its compact design allows users to go light, go far, and engage with Alpha 10 only when wanted or needed.”
Hunters can pair the Alpha 10 with the Garmin Explore™ smart device app for enhanced mapping solutions. When paired, users can stow the Alpha 10 handheld in their pack and use their compatible smartphone or tablet to view their dogs’ location and track in real time. Garmin Explore provides added relevant information such as hunt replay to relive moments from the hunt, robust off-grid navigation, customizable tracking lines and saved hunt collections.
Alpha 10 users can pair their unit to a companion’s compatible Garmin dog tracking device, such as Alpha 200i, to view their companion and companion’s dog location. Once paired, the Alpha 10 operator can make real-time decisions based on at-a-glance information, instead of waiting for verbal communication from the dog’s handler. The two-way connectivity allows the dog handler and Alpha 10 user to view each other’s location for enhanced awareness when not in visual contact. Additionally, compatible devices can share predefined messages between units for rapid communication.
Individuals can pair the Alpha 10 with optional Garmin devices, including a compatible Garmin smartwatch, such as Instinct, fenix or tactix, using the built-in dog tracking app. For in-vehicle tracking, the Alpha 10 is also compatible with Garmin DriveTrack system. Also, UTV/ATV enthusiasts can pair the Alpha 10 to the Montana 700 or Tread series for additional dog tracking capabilities.
