    Default SportDog Tek 1.0 GPS E-collar

    Has anyone had personal experience with this collar? Also, how beneficial would the GPS be for the everyday outdoorsman?

    I have no experience with it, but have toyed with getting a GPS collar and if I do, it will be the Garmin Alpha, which is also a full function tritronics e-collar (it is a bit pricier, though).

    I have thought about Garmin as well. At first the name Garmin just reminded me of GPS type electronics but looking on Tri-Tronics site you can see that Garmin owns Tri-tronics so it would probably be best to go the Garmin route due to Tri Tronics reputation on e-collars. I still can't get over the antennas though, I know my lab will be distracted by those for awhile.
