    Default Apologies to the Janitor but the Garmin website sucks

    So I go to the influentials club website today to order a transmitter only to find it is no longer active and says to check your email for log in information to the Garmin site. Ok, I find it in my email and sign in. Search for about ten minutes trying to find replacement transmitter with no luck. All I can find is new collars and mostly Garmin products.
    I go back to the influentials page and play around and find the transmitter listed for $230 dollars. My buddy got one 6 months ago for well under $200 as an influentials member. I want to say it was about $160 but I am not sure.
    I go back On the Garmin site I finally found a replacement and it was $209. What the hell?
    So does the influential club still exist? If I go to Garmin's regular page the price is still $209. Is there no discount for influentials members any longer.
    I am far from impressed with the change so far. Dogtra may be in my future.

    I'm not very influential with Dogtra but, have been very happy with their products for 12 years, including their customer service.

    Ditto no complaints, but if that is the product you want give them a call and explain and hear them out!

    Go to the tritronics site and put the transmittor into your cart. When you go to check out login with your garmin log in and discount will be shown.

    I recently ordered a collar and they had to email me the discount code. I had to establish a Garmin account and input the discount code and then everything worked great. The people I contacted by phone and email to get the discount code were very responsive and very helpful.

    I've pretty much had it with anything from this company since Garmin took over. I'd been a loyal Tritronics customer for 20 plus years but I'm done with them.

    Tritronics used to be a class A company that took care of their customers with excellent products and above average customer service. Since Garmin took over they could care less how they treat people.

    Changing brands is the only thing that will let Garmin know that their change in business model/philosphy is unacceptable.

    Switching to Dogtra regards,
    If I/we/you can't continue to advance our methods that focus on making training easier to learn/less painful for the dogs, we have no right to be training them. (Alec Sparks)
