Well I did it boys and it hurt a little too but I’ll get over it I guess now if I can just figure out all these functions I’ll be ready.
I got them charged and tinkered around last night till I think I’m ready to strap them on a dog right after church, but think I’ll be hanging on to the old faithful pro70 for a while till I get this one mastered . Okie dog supply may block my number before we get to that point lol

Lol. Mike and Sandy are great!! Contemplating the same thing Curnel. I’m just tighter than you I guess!! Lol
Like we talked yesterday tho it doesn’t make much sense to save a few hundred for the older technology model. Enjoy and keep us posted on how you like it

I’m pretty computer/modern technology ignorant. I didn’t try to use every function and years later still don’t. I have added a few to my knowledge base though.
I started out simply learning the stim buttons and how they work as well as gps. That’s easy and right there about all you need. Easy start anyhow. Good luck w it. I bet you’ll be surprised you ever questioned getting it

Is that the new 200i? Is it more complicated than the 100?

WOW!!! I am sure the 200 is a great unit to own and have fun learning to use it. Peace of mine for sure!!! Only issue is the antenna. I am afraid that my Beagles would chew them. I spent plenty money in Ecollars through the years. I first started with the Tritronic Sport, a 3 dog unit with a 1/2 mile range. I loved them. I never had a dog out of range, but I usually ran at least 4 dogs at a time so updated to the Tritronic G2 went to 6 dogs, one Mile Range. Good system and I could use the receivers from the Tritronic Sport system with it. This system was still working until a few months ago. Still used it at times. I upgraded to the Tritronic Trashbreaker G3 about ten years ago,when I was told that the batteries for the G2 receiver would not be available anymore. I ordered a new Battery for the older G2 transmitter while I still could and it actually still works today. With the G3 Trashbreaker I ordered all new receivers, complete new system with all G3 receivers. The G2 receivers could be married to the G3 system if needed. I saw on this site and on Ebay many sets for sale advertised as G3 units with only 1 G3 receiver and the rest being the older G2 receivers. They worked, but older and the G2 receivers had thin ears where the collars fed through and often one would break off. The ears on the G3 receivers were thicker and stronger and I never had one of those breaking. Now I have 12 or 13 receivers mixed G2 and G3 that the batteries for them are no longer available. I have one that still charges. I have thousands of dollars of Tritronic Units that at the time were considered the best that are usless now. I hold on to them in hopes that some company comes up with aftermarket batteries. So far I have been out of luck.

I was disappointed that Tritronic forgot about us in selling out to Garmin. I was satisified with Garmin still taking care of us Tritronic onwers for a couple of years, then Bam, No More Batteries for the G2 and G3 receivers and the G2 transmitters. Still I needed training Ecollars, but do not want to sink myself in for a couple thousand dollars. Who knows when these will be discontinued and again out of luck with expensive units just sitting useless.
I ended up buying from Garmin, something I said I wouldn't do since they dropped up Tritronic owners like a hot potato!!! I bought the Garmin Pro 70, not a 200 with the GPS feature. The Pro 70 six dog unit works just as good as the tritronic G3 did with more features. I like it so far, time will tell how long I will like them. My running is mostly in enclosurers so no need for the GPS Feature. I like the bark collar feature which works really well. I never realized how the light feature on the collars would be until I ran into the night and put the lights on and WOW!!! could see the dogs running through the cover and surely made it easier when it came time to catch them. This unit is still fairly expensive, but if you don't need the GPS it a a good unit for me so far. Just how many years will Garmin take care of us with these???? 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♂️🎅🎅🎅🎅 Merry Christmas!!!!
