  1. Tracking a DC50 collar with an Alpha

    The DC50 collar has been discontinued by Garmin and is now only available used. However many houndsmen, especially those hunting with a buddy or in a group with mixed systems, still have fully functioning DC50 collars they would like to continue using in the field.

  2. TT15 Blink Patterns

    TT15s, like other Garmin tracking collars, utilize a light system to indicate the status of the collar.

If you see this occur, immediately take down the collar's serial number and give DU a call to check warranty status if you are at all unsure about the collar's age. If under warranty, get the...
  6. Locating the Serial Number on Your Garmin Tracking Equipment

    When you call Double U with a broken Garmin item, the first thing we'll ask for is its serial number. Using this, we can check the item's purchase date and warranty status, or if out of warranty give a customer discount if the item was purchased from us. On Alpha handhelds, this will be located under the battery. The serial...
  7. Tracking a TT15 Collar with the Alpha 100 and 200i

    Many of our customers hunt with others in clubs or organizations, and when a new Garmin handheld hits the market, there is always the issue of if and when to switch over to the newer model. Previously, Astro 320 dog trackers ran on a 10-dog capacity software platform making them incompatible with the Alpha 100's 20-dog platform; many groups were...
