Garmin Alpha 200i/200 Handheld Only
Garmin Alpha 200i/200 Handheld Only
The Garmin Alpha 200 and Alpha 200i are advanced dog tracking and training systems designed specifically for hunters and dog owners who need to keep track of their dogs. These devices allow you to monitor up to 20 dogs at once on a 3.5" display with a 2.5-second update rate. The Alpha 200 features preloaded TopoActive maps, BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, customizable training options, and other advanced navigation features. The Alpha 200i includes all of the same features as the Alpha 200, but with the added benefit of InReach satellite technology. This technology allows you to send text messages anywhere using satellite, check the weather anywhere without any cell or internet service, and includes an SOS button that alerts emergency services of your location with a press of a button.
It's important to note that while the InReach satellite technology included in the Alpha 200i requires an active monthly service subscription to use its features, the subscription is only necessary for the InReach features and not for all other features. The tracking and training features of both devices do not require a monthly subscription. However, without an active subscription, the InReach features will not be accessible on the Alpha 200i. Whether you're tracking your dogs during a hunting trip or just keeping tabs on them during outdoor activities, the Garmin Alpha 200 and Alpha 200i are powerful tools that can help you stay connected and informed no matter where you are.
The Alpha 200 and Alpha 200i are two of Garmin's most advanced dog tracking and training systems, both designed specifically for hunters. While they share many features in common, the Alpha 200i includes additional technology that sets it apart.
The Alpha 200 is an advanced GPS tracking and training system that lets you monitor up to 20 dogs from up to 9 miles (depending on dog device) on a 3.5" display with a 2.5-second update rate. The system features a sunlight-readable 3.5" capacitive touchscreen display and a button-operated, dog-focused design for quick, minor adjustments. It also includes premium Garmin navigation features, such as preloaded TopoActive maps, BirdsEye Satellite Imagery with direct-to-device downloads, built-in 3-axis compass, and barometric altimeter.
Meanwhile, the Alpha 200i includes all the same features as the Alpha 200, but with the added bonus of InReach® satellite technology. This advanced technology allows you to send text messages anywhere using satellite, check the weather anywhere without any cell or internet service, and includes an SOS button that alerts emergency services of your location with a press of a button. With the Alpha 200i, you have access to all the same premium Garmin navigation features, customizable training options (TT15/TT15 Mini only), federal public land boundaries, and hunt timer function as the Alpha 200, but with the added benefit of InReach satellite technology.
In conclusion, both the Alpha 200 and Alpha 200i are highly advanced dog tracking and training systems that offer hunters a range of useful features. While the Alpha 200 is an excellent choice for those who don't need the added features of InReach satellite technology, the Alpha 200i is the ultimate choice for hunters who want the latest and greatest technology to help them monitor and train their dogs in the field.
