I have a new TT Flyway G2 that I have only used for about the last 2 months in training. I have used it some in hunting but not more than 4-5 times. I went to LA hunting all last week and after the first morning the transmitter quit working. I removed the battery to find some water in area between the battery and transmitter. I called TT and they are going to have me send it to them for replacement/repair. I am happy w/ that and that is all I can ask for.
I did not really get the thing that wet on our hunt. It was not even submerged. So here is my question, it is advertised as "waterproof", what does that mean to you guys? Should it mean if it rains on it you are ok, or if you submerge it is ok? To me I should be able to submerge the thing for a foot or 2 under water for no more than 10 min. and it still be ok. I mean I clip this thing to my waders so its bound to get wet. Is this an isolated incident or do TT transmitters not need to get wet? I had a Sportdog for 3 years that went under water A LOT, and it never had a problem. So what do you guys think? Do I expect too much out of this device if I think it should be sumbergeable?
