Garmin® Introduces New Line of Electronic Dog Training Collars

BarkLimiter™ and Delta™ Series Help Make Dogs More Enjoyable

OLATHE, Kan. /January 14, 2013/Business Wire — Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced a new line of electronic dog training systems: the BarkLimiter series of bark reduction collars and the Delta series of training collars for dogs.

“These new electronic dog training aids are designed to help dogs learn – whether they’re elite sporting dogs or beloved members of the family,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales.  “Both the BarkLimiter and Delta series feature proven and safe electronic correction technology that has been perfected by Tri-Tronics – the leader in electronic dog training devices for more than 40 years.”

The BarkLimiter Series

There’s no denying it – all dogs bark.  But problems begin when the barking becomes incessant – often times when family members are away from the home and unable to deal with the problem.  Neighbors start complaining, and in extreme cases, the landlord or animal control intervenes – forcing pet owners to make difficult decisions.

The new BarkLimiter series helps put an end to the problem by giving dog owners control over nuisance barking.  Featuring bark identification technology that uses innovative accelerometer technology, the BarkLimiter is able to distinguish between barking and other vocalizations.  Also exclusive to the new BarkLimiter Series is Advanced Bark Correction Technology, which delivers consistent and instantaneous correction, while substantially reducing false corrections that can be caused by external noises.

Like all Garmin products, the BarkLimiter Series is simple to use, with a set-it-and-forget-it “autorise” function that automatically programs the stimulation intensity level based on the barking behavior of each individual dog.  When a bark is detected, the lowest level of correction is given, and corrections will rise until the dog stops nuisance barking.  After a prolonged period of quiet, the BarkLimiter will reset itself to two levels below the dog’s maximum level reached and begin rising again if barking resumes.  Vibration and manual settings are also included.

For dogs that spend time alone in an apartment or back yard, the Bark Odometer™ lets dog owners know exactly how many times their dog barked while they were away.  The lightweight and compact BarkLimiter series features integrated stainless steel contact points and is waterproof in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.  Two versions are offered: the BarkLimiter, which features a long-lasting (up to 10 months) user-replaceable battery, and the BarkLimiter Deluxe, which features a rechargeable battery that lasts The BarkLimiter has a retail price of $79.99, and the BarkLimiter Deluxe has a retail price of $99.99.  Both models will be available in stores and online in the first quarter of 2013.

The Delta Series

For dog owners that want both a training collar and a bark collar, the Delta Sport delivers – combining two great features into one small package.  The Delta Sport is a sleek, ergonomic, and simple-to-use electronic training system for dog owners who want to teach their canine companion new commands, or refocus them away from unwanted behaviors.  Functioning as a “virtual leash” up to three-quarters of a mile away, the Delta Sport gives dog owners a wide range of customizable correction settings, including tone, vibration, and 18 levels of momentary and continuous stimulation.  And when not being used as a training collar, it serves double duty as a bark collar, with the same autorise feature found in the BarkLimiter Deluxe.

The Delta handheld’s easy-to-read LCD display makes it simple to switch among five different training configurations.  The trainer can make immediate corrections when necessary – all based on the temperament of the dog and the specific situation at hand.  The Delta handheld can control up to three collars total (sold separately) and switching between different dog collars is effortless.  The lightweight and compact Delta features integrated stainless steel contact points and both the collar unit and handheld are waterproof in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes – and the transmitter floats.  Both the handheld and collar unit come with rechargeable batteries that last up to three months on a full charge.

For trainers who only want e-collar functions (and no BarkLimiter), Garmin offers the Delta in a basic configuration with three training configurations (instead of five) and half-mile range.

The Delta has a retail price of $199.99, and the Delta Sport has a retail price of $249.99.  Both models will be available in stores and online in the first quarter of 2013.

The BarkLimiter and Delta Series dog training devices are the latest innovations in Garmin’s growing outdoor segment, which focuses on developing technologies to enhance users’ outdoor experiences and their relationships with their canine companions.  Whether it’s hiking, hunting, golfing, geocaching, or dog training, Garmin devices are essential tools for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels. For more information about Garmin’s other outdoor products and services, go to www.garmin.com/dogs, www.garmin.blogs.com and http://twitter.com/garmin.

Garmin® Partners with the United Kennel Club

OLATHE, Kan. /December 23, 2012/Business Wire — Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), and the United Kennel Club have reached an agreement, naming Garmin as a sponsor for the UKC’s major hound and beagle events, including the Winter Classic, Autumn Oaks, and Hunting Beagle World Championship.

Established in 1898, the United Kennel Club is the largest all-breed performance-dog registry in the world, registering dogs from all 50 states and 25 foreign countries. More than 60 percent of its 15,000 annually licensed events are tests of hunting ability, training and instinct. UKC prides itself on its family-oriented, friendly, educational events. The UKC has supported the “Total Dog” philosophy through its events and programs for over a century. As a departure from registries that place emphasis on a dog’s looks, UKC events are designed for dogs that look and perform equally well.

“We’ve enjoyed a long relationship with Tri-Tronics and we look forward to continuing this same partnership with Garmin,” stated Todd Kellem, vice president of United Kennel Club events.

“From the first Tri-Tronics A-70 to the Trashbreaker, the Astro and now the Alpha, competitive houndsmen have long relied on the product innovations, from first Tri-Tronics and now Garmin. Even before the Tri-Tronics acquisition, we at Garmin have long valued the essential role that the United Kennel Club plays in the competitive hound and beagle world,” remarked Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “We are proud to be a part of their prestigious events.”

Introducing the Garmin® Alpha™:
Premium Integrated Tracking and Training for Sporting Dogs

OLATHE, Kan. /July 31, 2012/Business Wire — Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced Alpha, a fully-integrated tracking and training system for hunters and their canine companions.

“The Alpha GPS Track and Train system for sporting dogs is the result of our collaboration with Tri-Tronics®. Little more than a year after joining forces, we’re now able to offer the sporting dog world a no-excuses system that offers the best of both worlds: robust GPS tracking with built-in topo maps from Garmin and proven electronic correction from Tri-Tronics,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “And the Alpha is packed with great new features that make it completely unlike anything else on the market.”

Alpha 100 Handheld Tracking Features

With location updates as frequent as every 2.5 seconds, the Alpha 100 handheld tracks and trains as many as 20 dogs up to nine miles away, depending on terrain. It features a three-inch, glove-friendly touchscreen display that’s easy to view in bright sunlight. The touchscreen allows hunters and trainers to configure their setup to their specific needs, yet it displays only the relevant information necessary to accomplish a task.

In addition to tracking other dogs, Alpha is the first device of its kind to feature a “buddy tracker” function. A party of hunters each carrying an Alpha can track not only their dogs, but other Alpha users – any combination of up to 20 dogs and hunters. With Alpha’s buddy tracker, there’s no more guesswork in determining the location of other hunters – which makes time afield not only easier, but safer. Alpha users can also send and receive pre-selected messages in the field – phrases like “help,” “come here,” or “go on without me,” which further add to the Alpha’s utility.

Hunters can follow their dogs and buddies on the Dog Tracker Page, which depicts a familiar three-axis compass, with color-coded arrows that indicate the direction and distance of each dog. And whenever a dog trees quarry or goes on point, the Alpha can give an audible or vibration alert. The other primary tracking page is the Map Page. The Alpha is pre-loaded with 100k topo maps, so hunters will always know what sort of geographical features (including ravines, rivers, and roads) are nearby. The Alpha is also compatible with other maps, like BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (sold separately). Users can even set up customized radius or geofence alerts to notify them if their dog has entered or exited a pre-determined area.

Alpha 100 Handheld Training Features

Above the Alpha 100’s touchscreen are three configurable buttons that the trainer can set to virtually any combination and level of continuous correction, momentary correction, or tone. Trainers can set up different stimulation levels for each dog, and control them all from a single handheld. When a correction is made, a menu automatically appears so the user can quickly choose from 18 intensity levels on the fly. Straight out of the box, the unit’s stimulation settings are configured in 18 levels of linear stimulation.

Users can also set the Alpha to emulate the traditional setup of the Tri-Tronics Pro 500 G3 EXP, with six levels of low, medium, and high correction.

The Alpha 100 handheld is powered by a replaceable lithium-ion rechargeable battery that’s capable of up to 20 hours of battery life, and it’s waterproof to IPX-7 standards.

TT 10 Dog Device

The TT 10 collar is designed to take anything that the hardest-hunting dog can dish out. The antenna that communicates with the Alpha 100 handheld is made of rugged aircraft cable, and for optimal satellite reception, the GPS antenna is positioned so that it rides atop the dog’s neck. The TT 10’s standard one inch coated nylon collar strap can be swapped out for a different color to easily distinguish between multiple dogs.

At a 2.5 second update rate, the TT 10 will get approximately 24 hours of battery life when fully charged. By slowing the update rate down to once every two minutes, the TT 10 collar can get up to 44 hours of use. The update rate can be changed at any time, as long as the Alpha 100 handheld is in contact with the TT 10 collar. As a safety feature, the Alpha also has a selectable dog rescue mode, which automatically switches the TT 10 to a two minute update rate when the battery is less than 25 percent charged – making it easier to recover a lost dog.

The TT 10 also features an integrated LED beacon for night use that can be activated from the Alpha handheld that’s visible up to 100 yards away. Waterproof to 10 meters, the TT 10 has just one charging interface that can’t get fouled with mud or debris. The TT 10 collar, the Alpha 100 handheld, and its assorted accessories can be conveniently stored in the durable field bag that’s included with the system.

Because of enhanced features like remote training, a faster update rate, and the expanded number of dogs and buddies the system is capable of tracking, the Alpha does not communicate with Garmin Astro or Tri-Tronics products. The Alpha GPS Track and Train system has a minimum retail price of $799.99, and additional TT 10 collar devices are $299.99, and will be available in August 2012. For more information on the Alpha system, visit www.garmin.com/alpha.

The Alpha GPS Dog Track and Train system is the latest innovation in Garmin’s growing outdoor segment, which focuses on developing technologies to enhance users’ outdoor experiences. Whether it’s golfing, hiking, hunting, or geocaching, Garmin outdoor devices are becoming essential tools for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels.

Head-Strap Mount Accessory Now Available for the Tri-Tronics NIGHTRAZOR Spotlight

PRESS RELEASE
July 2012
TUCSON, AZ

For immediate release:

Head-Strap Mount Accessory Now Available for the Tri-Tronics NIGHTRAZOR Spotlight

Tucson, AZ (July, 2012) – A head-strap mount accessory is now available for the Tri-Tronics NIGHTRAZOR cordless spotlight.

“The NIGHTRAZOR cordless spotlight was originally designed to be compatible with the traditional coonhunter’s hard-plastic bump cap, but we heard from a lot of folks that had other uses for the light besides coon hunting,” commented Gary Williams, Tri-Tronics Marketing and Sales Manager. “Waterfowlers setting up decoys before sunrise or hunters calling in coyotes at night do not need the same type of head protection from thick brush as our coonhunters require.”

The NIGHTRAZOR, weighing less than 5.2 ounces, runs off a rechargeable, long-lasting battery. The compact, rugged, waterproof design includes four levels of brightness intensity (180 lumens) and a battery life indicator. The NIGHTRAZOR offers a S_O_S flashing option that can be used in cases of emergencies. A strobe option can be used to signal hunting partners.

“With the new head-strap accessory mount, the NIGHTRAZOR is now more versatile and is perfect for backpackers, boaters, cyclists, fishermen or anyone else that demands a high-quality, powerful head lamp,” added Williams.

The NIGHTRAZOR cordless spotlight ($199) can be used with a variety of accessories, including: the new head–strap mount ($17.95), a black hard-plastic bump cap ($14.95), a blue soft cap w/hard liner ($19.95). Riflescope Mount Ring adaptor ($7.95). Red and Amber filters ($11.95) are available to provide additional stealth for hunters.

The Tri-Tronics NIGHTRAZOR is backed by a 2-year warranty and is made in the USA.

Tucson, AZ (September, 2011) – The Night Razor is the most powerful and versatile cordless cap-mounted spotlight available.  At 180 Lumens, the Night Razor’s beam is twice as large as and brighter than any model currently available for hunters.

Raccoon hunters that take to night with their hounds* have long complained about their bulky or ineffective cap spotlights.  Weighing only, 5.5 ounces, the cordless Night Razor eliminates the need for heavy battery-pack belts, but still offers superior light performance,” remarked Gary Williams, Marketing and Sales Manager.  “The Night Razor runs off a rechargeable, self-contained battery and features a compact, rugged, waterproof design.”

Showcasing features not found in other cap-mounted spotlights, the Night Razor offers a quick flashing Strobe mode can be used to catch the eye of a curious raccoon.  Hunters can take advantage of the S_O_S  flashing option for cases of emergencies.  Red and Yellow (can we call it ‘Amber’ instead?) are available to provide hunters with additional stealth when hunting coyotes or wild hogs.

“This is a game-changer for houndsmen….yada, yada”…John Wick quote

The Night Razor ($199) is available for purchase with a soft-sided cap or a hard plastic helmet.  Rifle/shotgun mounts are available for purchase.  The Tri-Tronics Night Razor backed by a 30-day money-back, 2-year warranty.  All products are made in the USA.

Garmin® Acquires Tri-Tronics® Inc., Leader in Electronic Dog Training Equipment

Schaffhausen, Switzerland and Tucson, AZ –/June 24, 2011/Business Wire — Garmin Ltd., (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced that one of its subsidiaries has signed an agreement to acquire Tri-Tronics Inc., the leading designer and manufacturer of electronic dog training equipment.  The acquisition will allow the combined company to expand its leadership position in both the tracking and training of sporting dogs and household pets alike.

“We are delighted to have Tri-Tronics join the Garmin family.  Like Garmin, Tri-Tronics is a leading and respected brand that is committed to designing, manufacturing, and marketing the highest quality, most rugged, and easiest-to-use devices in the business,” said Cliff Pemble, president and COO of Garmin.  “By integrating the two companies, we believe we can leverage our areas of expertise into products that can greatly enhance the way that dog owners interact with their canine companions.  This acquisition should demonstrate without a doubt that Garmin is fully committed to developing innovative products for the canine market.”

Innovation has made both Garmin and Tri-Tronics the choice of elite dog trainers and breeders as well as amateur hunters and pet owners.  Garmin revolutionized the sporting dog market when it entered the market in 2007 with Astro®, its highly-successful GPS dog tracking system, which pinpoints the exact location of a dog for hunters.  Earlier this year, Garmin introduced the cellular-based GTU 10 GPS locator and web-based Garmin Tracker service for computers and smartphones.

Tri-Tronics will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Garmin Ltd.  Its existing management team will be retained and will continue operations at its headquarters in Tucson, Arizona.  Financial terms of the agreement will not be released.  The deal is expected to close by June 30, 2011.
