SportDOG Brand TEK 1.0 LT Series Tracker GPS Collar Dog Tracking System


Product Description

The TEK 1.0 GPS tracking collar offers hunters the ability to get an instant fix on up to 12 dogs' locations all the way out to 7 miles with just a glance at the backlit liquid crystal display screen. This system is perfect for those that run hounds for predator or varmint hunting, beagles for rabbits; or all dogs used for upland birds. All of this is available through a compact, handheld device. The collar receiver features SportDOG Brand's DRYTEK® design, so it is waterproof and submersible up to 25 feet. The handheld is waterproof and submersible up to 5 feet. Features: Handheld Device: Lightweight, compact, handheld design Minimum of 20 hours of usage on a single charge Backlit LCD screen Integral, tilt-compensated compass Minimum of 20 hours of usage on a single charger Tracking: GPS functionality including multiple waypoints 7-mile tracking range 75-mile diameter screen with autoscaling Reports dog status (stopped or direction of movement) What's Included: Handheld Device Operating Guide Lanyard GPS Collar Getting Started Guide Adapter 2-Year Warranty GPS Dog Tracking on the SportDOG TEK Keep track of your hunting dogs at a distance, even in heavy cover. Know exactly where your hunting dog is and what he is doing. A single TRACKING SCREEN shows all your dogs, direction, and distance from you. (The TEK does NOT have a dog trail or track history, so you can't see where the dog has been, but all this info on one screen makes up for that.) HANDHELD GPS (Transceiver) Features: Backlit LCD screen 3 Axis tilt compensated compass Rechargeable, user replaceable handheld battery 20 hours of usage on a single charge GPS functionality including multiple waypoints Dog status - On Point or Treed Track up to 12 dogs at one time GPS COLLAR: Features: Dual batteries so training functions don't shorten GPS run time Rechargeable, factory-replaceable GPS battery GPS whip antenna GPS BATTERY on SportDOG TEK Collars Uses a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery pack. Average battery charge life is 25 hours. Allow 2 hours for a complete charge for a fully drained battery. The SportDOG TEK series tracking collar will get around 25 hours of run time starting with a 2.5 second update rate and slowing to a longer update rate as the battery becomes depleted. The SportDOG TEK E-collar module runs off of a separate battery and use of the ecollar will not effect battery life of the tracking collar. Collar Battery Runtime vs Update Rate Battery life on a GPS collar is based on the "update rate" - how often the GPS collar radios back location to the Handheld. The slower the update rate, the longer the battery life. A slower update rate also means that you have longer gaps of time between knowing the exact location of your dog. Most folks want a combination of the fastest possible update rate with the longest possible battery life. The SportDOG Tek collar starts out with a 2.5 second update rate. As the battery life gets lower the Tek collar automatically slows the update rate to conserve battery life. First 10 hours of runtime - 2.5 second update rate Next 5 hours of runtime - 10 second update rate Next 10 hours of runtime - 25 second update rate Total battery runtime - 25 hours SportDOG Tek collar does not allow you the option of changing the update rate. The advantage of the Tek collar is that while you are hunting (the first 10 hours of the battery) you have the fastest possible update rate at 2.5 seconds. After 10 hours, the collar slows the update rate to stretch out the battery life. The assumption here is that once you have passed the 10 to 15 hour mark, you are no longer hunting, but you are looking for a lost dog. The other thing to keep in mind is that with the way the TEK collar goes about setting the update rate, you are really required to charge the collar every time before you hunt. If you don't, you will have a substantially slower update rate on your second day of hunting. GPS RANGE The SportDOG TEK transmitter and receiver have a "line of sight" range of up to seven miles. The SportDOG TEK communicates using a VHF radio signal between the Dog GPS collar and the Handheld GPS unit, so to get the full range out of a system there should be nothing between the transmitter and the receiver. Realistically, this isn't going to happen in most of the places that we spend time with our dogs, so the actual usable range will be less than 7 miles depending on hunting conditions, including weather, terrain, and the presence of cover. GPS Waypoints SportDOG Tek can mark up to 20 waypoint location. It also has the option of marking a Starting point which can be used to locate your vehicle in the field. How SportDOG GPS works: SportDOG TEK GPS system consists of two parts: a Handheld GPS and a Dog GPS collar GPS collar gets location from GPS satellites GPS Collar sends location update to Handheld via radio signals GPS Collar updates Handheld every 2.5 seconds Handheld plots location of you and your dog Dog Tracking Screen shows you and your dog's location including: dog's distance from you, dog's direction dog's activity (moving, on point or treed). Add up to 12 dogs to the Tek Handheld GPS Ecollar system. All you need are extra TEK collars. see more...
