Garmin TT15 Collar

Garmin Alpha TT15 Track and Train Collar

The Garmin TT 15 track and train dog device with collar is a top-mounted, high-sensitivity GPS/GLONASS receiver that uses 18 levels of continuous and momentary stimulation plus audible tone and vibration activated from the Alpha® 100. Compatible with the Astro® 320 for tracking only.

Rugged and water resistant to 10 meters, this tracking and training dog device is tough enough to run wherever your dog runs, up to 9 miles away. The stimulation features let you train each dog separately — traditional stimulation allows you to make quick changes (low, medium or high) within a predetermined stimulation level (1-6) whereas linear stimulation allows progressively more stimulation from levels 1 to 18.

TT 15 units, when sold separately, ship with a 1-inch red collar strap. Replacement straps are available in multiple colors (sold separately).

Garmin® Introduces New Collars for Astro® and Alpha® Dog Tracking and Training Systems

Garmin® Introduces New Collars for Astro® and Alpha® Dog Tracking and Training Systems

12 June 2014 @ 6:00 AM  / Outdoor/Fitness /


OLATHE, Kan. /June 12, 2014/Business Wire — Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced two new GPS-enabled collars, the TT 15 and T 5, for its industry-leading Astro and Alpha dog tracking and training systems.

“These new collars give sporting dog owners what they’ve been asking for – things like better satellite reception and optional vibration in a rugged design,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales.  “These new devices demonstrate the commitment by Garmin and Tri-Tronics to continue innovating in the sporting dog market.”

The new TT 15 dog device allows you to track and train sporting dogs up to nine miles away. New in this unit is the addition of GLONASS satellite technology. When using GPS and GLONASS satellites together, sporting dog owners will spend less time waiting for the collar to acquire satellites before the hunt, and the collar will better maintain its location even in heavy cover and deep canyons during the hunt.

The TT 15 also adds a vibration stimulation option, to match individual dogs’ temperament. Incorporating vibration into a training plan is also an ideal way to silently issue a command to a dog. Like previous models, the TT 15 has 18 levels of continuous or momentary stimulation, as well as tone. Battery life varies from 24 to 48 hours, depending on the user-specified update rate.

For hunters who want a dog’s perspective of the hunt (third-party mounting harness sold separately), they can pair the Garmin VIRB™ high-definition action camera with the TT 15 and control it remotely from the Alpha 100 handheld.

The T 5 is a tracking-only version of the TT 15. The T 5 has the same GLONASS compatibility, without any stimulation capability. Both the TT 15 and the T5 are compatible with the Alpha 100 or the Astro 320 handhelds. Tracking, but no stimulation, is possible when pairing the Astro 320 with the TT 15.

These collars are sold in two new bundles. The Astro bundle contains an Astro 320 and T 5, while the Alpha bundle contains an Alpha 100 and a TT 15. New to the Alpha bundle is an included one-year subscription to high-resolution BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, which depicts aerial views of trees and man-made structures. The new collars are also sold separately as an upgrade to existing Astro and Alpha systems, but users must download a free software update to their handheld before pairing the new collar by visiting The new devices are expected to be available in July 2014.

The TT 15 and T 5 are the latest innovations in Garmin’s growing outdoor segment, which focuses on developing technologies to enhance users’ outdoor experiences and their relationships with their canine companions.  Whether it’s hiking, hunting, golfing, geocaching, dog training, or capturing it all on video, Garmin devices are essential tools for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels. For more information about Garmin’s other outdoor products and services, go to, and

Garmin Announces T5 and TT15 GPS Dog Tracking Collars

Garmin, the global leader in dog GPS track and train technology, just announced the newest updates to their dog tracking platform. The Garmin TT15 / Garmin T5 GPS dog tracking collars. By simplifying their product line, this allows hunters a simple choice between a track and train (TT15) collar, or a track only (T5) collar. The customer can use either collar on both the Astro 320 or Alpha 100; however they will not track on both at the same time. It should also be noted the training features of the TT15 are disabled while paired with the Astro 320.

With a list of features that include GPS/GLONASS capable, new training options, bark detection, LED beacon lights, rescue mode, and the ability to turn on/off your VIRB camera at long distances, we feel our customers will be equally excited. The two TT15 / T5 features that the Double U Hunting Supply team is most excited about are the, “choose your system” feature available on both the TT15 and the T5. This allows the TT15 / T5 to be tracked on either the Astro 320 or the Alpha 100. Second is the vibrate training mode that is available only on the TT15 while it is paired to the Alpha 100.

“The best part about the way Garmin is moving with this product model is having the ability to offer our customers a way to upgrade into the track and train abilities of the Alpha 100 system one collar at a time, without having to purchase a whole new system all at once”. “For a few more dollars our customers can progress towards the Alpha 100 system each time they purchase a new collar,” says Buddy from the Double U Hunting Supply team.

Because not all features are available on both the TT15 and the T5 and some features are disabled while linked to an Astro 320, we encourage our customers to check out the comparison charts below to make sure you get the collar that is the best fit for your needs.

The Garmin T5 Tracking collar will be available individually for $249.99 or can be bundled with a Astro 320 T5 Bundle for 599.99.

You can purchase the Garmin TT15 individually for 299.99, or bundled in the Alpha 100 TT15 combo package for 799.99.

Garmin DC50—the Latest in Tracking & Training Collars from Garmin

Garmin Astro 320 and DC50Now Available from Double U Hunting Supply!

Garmin is well known to hunters and hound lovers around the world for the quality and features it builds into its dog collars and its hound-tracking and training systems. The new DC50 tracking and training collar just released by Garmin is the latest addition to the company’s impressive stable of hound-management tools. Like the DC40 collar, it’s designed to work with Garmin’s Astro 320 tracking system, but the DC50 vaults ahead in performance by adding bark-detection and training functions, improved satellite coverage, better battery management, and a longer, more durable antenna.

Buddy Woodberry on the DC50 Collar
“Garmin’s DC50 is finally on the market,” says Double U’s Buddy Woodberry, “and from what we’ve seen, we’re really excited about what it can do. In our field tests, it way out-performed both the old DC30 and DC40 collars. The DC50 is GLONASS-enabled so users can connect with more satellites than before, and it comes with a 21”, braided-steel antenna that’s effective for up to 9 miles; that’s 30% more range than the DC40.

“Plus, it’s got bark-detection, which the DC40 doesn’t have, and it’s waterproof to more than 30 feet,” says Buddy. “We think our customers will be really impressed with the DC50 and the new capabilities it will give them.”

In addition to bark detection, the DC50 has taken a giant leap forward in locating ability by adding the GLONASS system of satellites to the GPS satellites we commonly use. According to Buddy, “This will give users 21 more earth-orbiting satellites for the DC50 to find, which really improves the odds of being able to locate and track their dogs accurately, even in heavy tree cover or deep canyons.”

Finally, says Buddy, “We think it’s great that Garmin has added bark detection to the DC50 collar. Now you can tell if your dogs are barking even if they’re not close enough for you to hear. Until you can catch up with them, this really helps you understand what’s going on with your hounds and the game they’re working.”
Sold by itself, the DC50 comes with an adjustable 1” blue polyurethane collar strap; when sold in a bundle with the Astro 320, the DC50 comes with an adjustable 1” orange strap. And don’t forget: when your collar straps finally get worn out, you can buy replacements in multiple colors from Double U Hunting Supply.
Bottom line?
Garmin’s DC50 collar is very competitively priced, yet it’s the first in a new generation of tracking and training collars that are more versatile and powerful than the DC40 and DC30. GLONASS-enabled and boasting built-in bark-detection, a more sensitive antenna, battery-saving rescue mode, and much more effective waterproofing, the DC50 is your best choice in hound tracking and training collars today.
