Alpha 200i

Postby rickyfarrell10 » Mon Sep 07, 2020 9:16 pm

Just wanted to see what everyone thought about the 200? What the price will be and when it will be available in the states? Will it track 15s?

I read they will work with 15’s and 10’s.
I hope Buddy gets them soon because I’ve been jonesing to get one!

Any hound hunters using a 200i yet? Just wanted to check on thoughts of them. I have GSPs and Pointers. My male pointer is a big runner and it's hard to keep him nearby when grouse hunting. I was about to get the Garmin 550+ until the 200i came out. Where I hunt is often alone and bad cell reception.

I got the 200i because my screen had three nickel sized black spots on the screen.
I am very happy with the screen and how the buttons and locking system will work. It should be a lot easier to keep it on the screen that you want without accidentally pushing buttons. With the onx chip the map is a game changing advantage on the new screen.
If my screen was not broken I would not say that it would be worth the $750 but I’m still really happy to have it.

I do not have one, but I watched the video on double u's website describing it. The only advantage I can see in it over the 100 for me personally would be the fact that it has in-reach built in. All the other extras aren't worth upgrading to me personally. But the in-reach is definitely a selling point for me. I'm sure if I break my 100 in the future I will upgrade to the 200

In reach built in is a nice feature. For 14 dollars a month I have piece of mind that if I have problems in the backcountry I can get ahold of someone and not have to carry another device with me, also gives me confidence when I’m following on foot, if I do have a injury or something of the like I can text for help or hit the s.o.s button in a emergency. Customizing the training keys is also very helpful. Like any device or machine it takes some getting use to

I ended up getting a 200i and it seems nice. Still learning how to use it but very nice for my big running pointer.
