Garmin Tri-Tronics PRO 550

By: Candy K

Family pet.

We upgraded from another model because of the flaws in the receiver. We've been using Tri-Tronics collar for over 7 years now, and we're big fans, but the old model kept breaking on the side strap holders. We really dislike the transmitter on this one. It's big and clunky, the 2 switches tend to slide when we don't want them to, and we have to charge not one, but 2 units now. The old one had a small replaceable battery that rarely had to be replaced and we found that better for our purposes. We also don't like the holder on the transmitter. The old one had a strap that allowed us to easily hang it around our necks. This one has a holster and a big clunky strap that doesn't seem to make much sense. The unit doesn't stay upright, and moves around too much. But we do like the improved strap holders on the receiver. And we love the new charging cradle, much improved over the old one!

Product Rating: 3 out of 5-stars.
