The Delta Upland XC is designed for birddog folks. It comes with a beeper so that you can hear your dog when he's out in the field away from you. The beeper is designed where it can tell you if he's moving or he's on point. It has a couple of different features as far as it will beep when he is moving, and then when he goes on point, has been stationery for a second, it will increase to a rapid one second beep.
You also have a couple other options with the beeper. You can have just a regular beep. You can also have a hawk scream. Some folks like the hawk scream to stop birds from running. The idea behind a beeper is just strictly so you know what the dog is doing.
The big advantage with a beeper/trainer combo is that you have the ability to control the beeper from the transmitter. So you can turn your beeper on when your dog gets into heavy cover or he is stretched out away from you. But when he's close to you or if he's on point and you now know where he is and you want to shut the beeper off, press the button on the transmitter and you can cut the beeper off.
If I'm going to use a beeper, I want one that I can control from the transmitter. Some beepers, including this one, sound a little bit like a garbage truck backing up. And so to me it can ruin the experience in the field in certain situations.
They are a very inexpensive way to keep track of your dog and have been real popular for a long time. A lot of folks won't hunt without them. So if you are going to use a beeper and you like a beeper, then you want to be able to cut it on and off. That's really what this unit is designed for.
The Delta Upland XC is just like the Delta Sport XC as far as the majority of its features. You have the side keys to raise and lower your stimulation. Then you have your dog selection button. It's an expandable system.
On the other side you have your mode button which takes you through the different stimulation choices. Your stimulation buttons line up with the choices depending on what mode you are on.
One other feature that this collar has, just like the Delta Sport XC, it also has a built in Bark Limiter.
What's nice about these bark collars is you still have correction levels from the transmitter even when you are in bark mode. So if you've got a dog that's in the backyard and he's got a barking issue, you can put it in bark mode. It's going to take care of your barking problem. But then, if he starts to dig in the flower bed and you want to make a correction there, you simply make your corrections with the stim buttons. When you are finished with that it's still working as a Bark Limiter.
So, real versatile bark collar. We've never seen one that had quite this level of versatility where you've got training options and bark options and you can move back and forth from the transmitter.
So this is the Delta Upland XC. It's got a lot of features. Real reasonably priced. And it's a really neat collar for folks that are doing upland work and want that beeper option plus a wide choice of stimulation levels and a bark collar included.
I've used my new Delta Upland XC for three weeks now and I've got to say I'm a bit disappointed. First The Beeper: While in the field, with the collar tight, my Britt Chase will shake his head and his ears will shut the beeper off. ( it happened 4 times today.) The switch is a little too easy to turn on and off. Second: The volume of the Hawlk Screach in my opinion is way to loud. To be honest, my old MAYS POND Beeper from Orvis from the early 90's is better. I don't want my dog losing his hearing. Setting the beeper can be a bit tough in the field without the instructions. The controller and the collar are great. Easy to use, see, and set.
Product Rating: 4 out of 5-stars. Review ID: 27024 Reviewed: 2016-02-04
Has worked well so far. Really like the ability to turn the beeper collar on/off remotely. The only downfall to it, is that there isn't a button configuration where I'm able to use vibrate and turn beeper on/off. It works great, it's just that I don't like switching through the modes on the transmitter. But, with that being said, the collar is really easy to use. So glad I bought it.

Garmin Delta UPLAND XC Remote Training Collar with Beeper
Remote Training collar, Bark Limiter, and Upland Beeper all in one system!
What's New in the Garmin Delta UPLAND XC
Rapidly increase or decrease the stimulation level:
Rapidly increase or decrease the stimulation level using the new side button feature. Just press and hold to increase multiple levels.
Set the number of dogs on your system:
The Delta XC Series gives you the option of having a one dog unit, a two dog unit or a three dog unit. If you are not running multiple dogs, you can remove this option and only have the dogs on the handheld that you actually have. You can always add the second and third dog options back to the handheld if you add additional dogs down the road.
Long and short contact points:
The original Delta collars came with short probes installed that were not removable or replaceable with long probes. The Delta Upland XC comes with regular (short) probes installed but long probes are also included and can easily be swapped. These are the same probes used on the Garmin PRO units.
New stimulation pattern:
The original Delta units had a stimulation pattern that didn't match anything that Tri-Tronics had used before. It was much lower on the top end and we ran across a number of dogs that it didn't work with in high drive situations. To fix this issue, Garmin has made the Delta Upland XC stimulation pattern match the one in the Garmin PRO systems. Don't take this to mean that this is a substantially "hotter" collar and it might be too strong for your dog. The low end is still very low, and the middle numbers are also the same. The top end is now what we expect out of a Tri-Tronics system and I don't expect to see any issues with dogs blowing off the stimulation.
Modified side collar loops for a better fit:
The Delta XC Series has slightly modified collar strap loops that allow the receiver to fit better on dogs with larger necks. These modified loops allow the collar to open wider and place the contact points in a better position on the neck compared to the original Delta collar.
New Bark Limiter options:
The Delta Upland XC bark collar has the same auto rise option as the original Delta Upland, but it also has both a vibration only and a 1-18 direct level setting option. This way if you know what level it takes to get your dog to stop his nuisance barking, you can select it from the transmitter. This also gives you the option of having bark collars on up to three dogs with three different levels at the same time.
Bark correction and training at the same time:
The Delta Upland XC lets you use the bark collar and still have the training collar available at the same time. To use this feature, you select the bark collar / training collar mode, select your bark collar level and then return to training. The bark collar level can be Auto-Rise, Vibration Only or Direct Level. Once you have selected your level and returned to training mode, you can raise and lower the training stimulation level without changing the bark limiter level.
Designed with the bird hunter in mind, the Garmin Delta UPLAND XC remote training collar is both simple and effective using proven Tri-Tronics technology. It features a simple, push-button design with an easy-to-read LCD display so you can correct your dog instantly, for a stronger connection between behavior and training. The Garmin Delta UPLAND XC also features a built-in Bark Limiter that uses advanced bark correction technology to help correct unwanted barking.
Remotely control the included Upland Beeper from up to 3/4 mile away. The beeper is adjustable on the collar strap to stay correctly positioned and fit any sized dog. You will always know where your dog is hunting and when he goes on point. Control your dog and control his beeper, all with one small transmitter. It's easy to carry no matter where or what you hunt.

Available Modes (Sound Combinations)
The Upland G3 Beeper can operate under a variety of sound combinations or "Modes." These include various series of beeps when the dog is hunting and a hawk scream or a beep when on point.
HUNT Mode -- The Beeper sounds every 4 seconds while the dog is moving.

Remote Locate Feature
To locate your dog when hunting with the Beeper press and hold the Transmitter button that operates the Beeper. The Beeper will produce a series of beeps, as long as the button is pressed, for up to 8 seconds.
Replacing the Battery
The Beeper is shipped with one CR123A battery installed. With normal use, your battery will last for several months. To change the battery, unscrew the Phillips-head screw on the top cover of the Beeper. Remove the top cover to expose the battery compartment. Remove the old battery and install a new one with the positive terminal end pointing up. Never force a battery into this compartment. Pay careful attention so that the gasket at the top of the battery compartment is in place. Replace the top cover and tighten the screw. Use only replaceable lithium CR123A batteries. Check for function by switching the Beeper on. If there is no function check to make sure the battery is installed correctly.
Introducing an Inexperienced Dog to the Beeper
Garmin designed your Beeper to be LOUD!!! This may startle an inexperienced dog. To help your dog adapt to hunting with a Beeper collar, you can muffle the sound by placing a piece of duct tape over the speaker horn. Hanging a Beeper near your dog's kennel, and letting the dog listen to it beeping for several hours is also an effective technique to help your dog get used to the noise of the Beeper.
Care and Maintenance
Remove the Beeper from the collar strap for thorough cleaning. You can wipe the Beeper with a damp cloth and mild detergent if desired.
Do not use any solvents as they can cause damage.
Do not submerge the Beeper in water when cleaning it.
Do not run water into the speaker horn area of the Beeper or into the battery compartment.
Dirt and debris in the speaker and horn can cause the sound to change. To clean the speaker and horn:
Unscrew the Phillips-head screw on the top cover of the Beeper.
Remove the top cover to expose the speaker and horn. (This also exposes the battery compartment and battery.)
Clean debris from the speaker and horn using only a moistened cotton swab.
Do not use any sharp or pointed objects. They could damage the speaker.
Replace the top cover and tighten the screw. Make certain that the battery has remained with the positive terminal pointing up and the gasket at the top of the battery compartment is in place.
Cold Weather Performance
All batteries experience a normal drop in voltage during cold weather. As a battery powered device, your Beeper can be affected by normal voltage drops during winter months and experience such things as:
Battery can run down more rapidly.
Sound may become weaker.
Beeper may switch itself off while training (evidence of low battery).
Radio Signal Issues
Modern microprocessor technology virtually eliminates the possibility that your unit could be unintentionally set off by someone else with a Garmin product.
