Anyone using a dog GPS tracker?

If you are, I'd be interested in your opinion/experiences.

I have a friend that I occasionally hunt with that uses GPS trackers. He belongs to a hunt club where everyone uses trackers. Most of them are starting to upgrade from the old antena type to the new GPS... really cool but expensive. GPS shows everywhere the dog goes on a map in real time.

I use a GPS tracker on my dog full time. It's a "Tagg" system. Tagg is the brand name. If they get lost you can track them on your computer or phone. It also alerts you with an email or text message if they get out of the zone they are supposed to be in. Really neat! Especially for escape artists.

We've used them for hunting, Bob. Various Garmin Astro system with the first one being just an arrow pointing to the dogs direction and then one with a map, which was nice. I can't remember with the first one, but the latest ones even tell you what the dog is doing like is it sitting or moving.

Two issues were with one long ranging dog moving out of the antenna's ability to pick him up. The other was with the ability of the collar to pick up the signal, especially if it hadn't been used lately - waiting, waiting ...
