Garmin Alpha 100 TT15 System Battery Life
With the TT15, there are two sets of update rates depending on which handheld you are using. If you are in Astro mode for the TT15 it will have the standard 5, 10, 30, 120 second updates and in Alpha mode the TT15 you get an added level of 2.5 seconds (2.5, 5, 10, 30, 120). This allows you to find a balance of battery run time and frequency of which you would like to know where your dog is at a given time.

Frequently Asked Questions on the Garmin Alpha 100 TT15 Bundle
Can the Garmin Alpha 100 double as a GPS unit for other than hunting?
Yes, the Alpha 100 handheld can be used as a GPS unit when not training or hunting your dogs. With the Alpha 100, you are able to navigate routes, track log of 10,000 points, and save up to 4,000 waypoints on the device. You also have the map and compass functions to navigate to your destinations.
My brand new Alpha 100 handheld is ready as 0% charged after a few hours of charging, is something wrong with the handheld?
Due to new regulations and laws that require batteries to have less than 30% charge on them in order to ship on a plane or air cargo, these deeply discharged batteries will take 6-12 hours of charging in an Alpha before they will begin to show charging. In some cases, the Alpha may only “shows” 90% charge for the first couple of charges, even though the battery is completely charged. Sometimes on the first charge, the Alpha handheld might read 0% charged for up to 8 hours of charging.
What all collars are compatible with the Alpha 100 handheld?
The Alpha 100 can work with the TT15, TT10, and T5 collars (tracking only) right out of the box. The Garmin DC50 (tracking only) can also be used with the Alpha 100 after it is updated to the current software version.
Can I change the color of the TT15 collar strap?
Yes, you can choose from any color of 1” Garmin Replacement Collar Straps (#GSTRAP) or our 1” Ecollar Replacement Straps (#CSTRAP).
Can I use a Garmin TT15 collar on one dog and a Garmin T5 collar on another dog while using the Alpha 100 handheld?
Yes, you can use any combination of TT15, TT15 Mini, TT10, T5, and T5 Mini collars with the Alpha 100. When using a T5 and T5 Mini you will only have the tracking ability.
I see it can track 9 miles line of sight, but how far out will the correction function work?
Yes, the system can reach out to 9 miles in perfect conditions, line of sight. You can use the correction function at that range too as long as its line of sight. A good rule of thumb is if you can track the dog you can use the correction function.
