Garmin ALPHA 200i + TT15 MINI

Post by TxReddog » Sun Feb 21, 2021 9:47 pm

Does anyone have any experience with the Garmin ALPHA 200i + TT15 MINI? I’m looking to upgrade from my tri tronics collar system & am curious of pros & cons of this system or if anyone has other recommendations.

Ideally I will never need the tracking part but it’s just peace of mind. TIA

I don't have any experience with the 200i but I do have the Alpha 100 with the tt15 mini collar. The Alpha 100 works fine but ha way ore capabilities than I need and will ever learn to use. If I could do it over I would get the Garmin Pro 550 Plus. Less expensive and does everything I need it to do.

I have both 550 plus and 200i. IMO if you don’t need the tracking/mapping feature, run multiple dogs at once or need the in-reach capability’s then I would go with the 550 plus. The 200i is really nice and has a TON of features but isn’t as easy and straight forward to use as the 550 plus.
