Notes:

  • Important Notes for HD BarkDetect: This is available in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark and is an Alpha 100-only feature (operation with the Astro320 is not affected).
  • HD BarkDetect requires an update to the T5/TT15 Dog Device (see T5 TT15 Updates and Downloads).
  • To enable HD BarkDetect on the Alpha, go to Setup->Dogs->Bark Detection.
  • To enable HD BarkDetect on the T5/TT15, go to that Dog Device’s Info page and select ‘Bark Sensitivity’ from the menu. Select a sensitivity to send to the Dog Device. The Dog Device will start transmitting HD Bark Detection information.
  • NOTE: Once a T5 or TT15 Dog Device is in HD Bark Detection mode, it can only be tracked in Alpha mode by Alpha 100’s with software version 5.40 or greater.
  • Astro320 tracking is not affected by HD BarkDetect selection.
  • WARNING: If this software is uploaded to a device other than that for which it is designed, you will not be able to operate that device.
  • If attempts to upload software fail, you may need to return the device to Garmin® for service.
