The Dogtra Pathfinder GPS Track & Train System combines e-collar GPS tracking technology with your very own smartphone. Using your smartphone or iPad, you can map, track and train in the field. Simply download the Dogtra Pathfinder app from the app store, pair your system together and you're ready to go. The Pathfinder app works with Google Maps to provide the most accurate, real-time data in the palm of your hands with no cellular data required^.
The system has the capability to track and train up to 21 dogs (with additional receiver collars) up to a maximum range of 14km. Using the Pathfinder app, you can share locations with other hunters, record and playback data, create customisable Geo-Fence alerts and monitor system battery. The app features e-collar remote functionality that allows you to choose from 100 levels of static stimulation. You can deliver a momentary stimulation (nick), continuous stimulation or a tone-only stimulation that delivers an audible tone (no static stimulation).
When it comes to map display, you can choose from terrain view, satellite view, normal view or outdoor view. The Dogtra Pathfinder boasts a huge range of key features trusted by professional hunters, farmers and tracking dog handlers working in demanding conditions around the world. Best of all, it's easy to use.
Due to the size of the collar module and the minimum length of the collar strap, this system is only suitable for dogs above 15kg. Like all Dogtra products, the GPS connector and receiver collar are completely waterproof and rechargeable. We recommend fitting the Dogtra hunting protector pack on your dog's receiver collar to protect the electronics inside the module.
The Dogtra Pathfinder can also be used as a tracking only system.
The Dogtra Pathfinder uses Google Maps for the most up-to-date detailed terrain and satellite view. Google Maps provides the most accurate location data available today.
