Good but could be much better

 

I like the product for the obvious reasons; I can watch my hounds as they work. I do not like for the reasons stated above. The charging system and battery life are terrible. I also wish one could by a unit capable tracking 15 hounds

It makes what I do much easier. Great concept and simple to use

Charging problems due to bad design. Dirt gets into the charging area and has to be cleaned out every time. Battery life is terrible. Other (non gps) tracking systems have a battery life of well over 500 hours

this sistem is very cool and easy to use! but needs to do something about the antenna on collar (DC 20) it keeps on breaking when the dog goes under fences and in tall grass!
