Cuantos perros puedes seguir en fenix 3??

Developer Reply

The Fenix 3 should be able to handle all 20 dogs with this version of the app. My other apps may have further limitations as they require more memory per dog.

Works great after disabling the Garmin's own app, thank you for the tip! Great work, thanks!

Hola pongo el id de mi alpha 100 y siempre me sale esta numeración 2147483647 por que puede ser ? gracias

Sorry to hear you are having problems. Chances are you've used Garmin's Dog Tracker Widget which prevents my apps from connecting until you use the widget to "forget" the Alpha/Astro. There are instructions in the troubleshooting section of my help document how to fix this. Unless you have other Alpha's/Astro's around, you should just leave the ID set to 0.

Sûrement très bien, mais non compatible avec un alpha 100 version française...Garmin vends du rêve mais en fin de compte on reste sur notre faim.comment passer sur une version US?

I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues with the app. I'm not sure what you mean that it isn't compatible with the French version of the Alpha 100. This would likely be an issue with the Alpha and not the app. Please feel free to contact me directly at the "Contact Developer" link if there is something I might be able to help you with.

Is there a way to se the bark counter it would be very nice. Thanx for a great app

Developer Reply

Unfortunately this is not data that is transmitted by the Alpha/Astro to the watch. So there would be no way for the app to get access to this information to display. Glad you are enjoying the app.

Ottima App, la sto usando con ATEMOS 100 e FENIX 3 HR inoltre lo sviluppatore è molto disponibile l'ho contattato piu volte e mi ha sempre dato risposte puntuali. Great App, I'm using it with ATEMOS 100 and FENIX 3 HR, moreover the developer is very helpful, I contacted him several times and he always gave me precise answers

Fantastic app for all you Garmin Astro/Alpha/xxx owners! Really makes Garmin look good. The convenience is worth your dog's weight in gold! Much easier to glance at a watch than to pull the Garmin unit out, not to mention the safety of being able to put the Garmin unit in a safe (unable to lose) place! The greatest thing in my opinion is the ability to set distance parameters/alarms for your dog. You no longer have to watch the Garmin screen when in thick cover to see where you dogs are! If they are within the range you set, no problem. If not, You are notified! Great addition! Garmin should be paying you big bucks for this app Eric! (So should the users too, but everyone knows bird dog addicts don't have any money so..... Also, I cannot thank Eric enough for his support on ironing out a few issues on my part! His commitment and service ethics are a very rare commodity these days, and extremely, extremely appreciated. Thanks for such a great job!

This continues to be my favorite Garmin app. It's perfect for tracking multiple pointing dogs and allows me to keep my focus in the field. Thank you!

Nice app! Using Astro 320 and Forerunner 235. Arrow is red though even when I have full gps signal on my 320. Would like to see dog status also, moving, sitting barking.

Developer Reply

Glad to hear you are enjoying the app. The arrow color indicates if the dog is moving or not, Red indicates it is not moving. Green indicates it is moving. On the multi dog "ring" view, the colors match the color set for the dog on the Astro. The border around the arrow gets thicker when the dog is not moving. The big ring color also indicates if the furthest dog is moving or stationary.

Nice app! I still use the data field version since I like to track my hiking trips at the same time. A version of this app integrated with an hiking app/functionality would have been great!

Is it possible to use Dog tracker app for locating mobile phone instead of Garmin Astro/Alpha?

Developer Reply
January 18, 2018, ekutter

Unfortunately no. It relies on Ant+ communication with the Alpha which sends the location of the Alpha and Dogs to the watch. There is no such communication with the phone. It would probably be possible for someone to write such an app but that would require both a CIQ app running on the watch and an app running on your phone. In this case, the phone would need to be with in BT range to get the communication.

Thank you for a Great app. Is IT possible to track an activity at the same time? Hiking / cycling together with this dogtrack? If yes - How do you do that?

Developer Reply
December 3, 2017, ekutter

Not at this time with this app but I do have a more limited data field version that you can use with a normal activity.

December 2, 2017 | Version 1.8-upd

Fonctionne parfaitement sur Fenix 5 avec alpha 100 et collier TTmini. Indispensable pour remplacer le dog track d origine de Garmin. Amélioration possible : personnalisation du code couleur des chiens ou mise en lien avec le code couleur de l alpha 100. Merci au développeur

Developer Reply
December 3, 2017, ekutter

Thanks for the review and glad it is working well for you. The color for each dog on the multi dog page should be tied to the color selected for that dog on the Alpha. Note that not all colors can be matched due to limitations on the devices.
