Garmin GPS/E-Collar Combo?

Post by Highway Ends Kennel » Fri Dec 30, 2011 2:14 am

Anybody have any information on when or if Garmin will come out with a GPS/E-Collar Combo? I want to get a GPS but was holding off because I heard Garmin would be coming out with a combo collar after they bought Tri-tronics. I really like the reliability of my TT E-collar and I know Garmin is one of the leaders in the GPS industry.

On the other hand, LCS is offering $100 off on the SD version thru the end of the year($600 total).

Just get a 3/4" strap, drill two holes in it and use the DC 40 and the receiver for the TT... haven't heard of a new collar coming out though.

That's definitely an option. I like to keep things simple though and one less gadget(transmitter) in the field would be nice. Maybe the next I-Phone or Droid smart phone will be able to control both collars :P

Plus, why would Garmin buy out Tri-Tronics if they weren't planning on combining their GPS collar with Tri-Tronics E-Collars?

I am waiting on this too. I hope it drops the price of the 320!
