Dogtra Pathfinder Mini GPS Track and Train Dog Collar Review

Dogtra Pathfinder mini is a cost-effective solution to expensive problems. Dogtra is offering this GPS track and train equipment at half the price of most GPS dog collars.  They build it to work with your cell phone, which means you can use your cell phone to track and train your dogs.

It works even out of the GSM area and where the cell phones are not working because it is not dependent on your cell phone service. Once installing, the app consumes some data but thereafter, It uses offline maps and connects with the handheld device VIA Bluetooth, and it is fully compatible with google maps.

It always downloads the required maps in advance and works well offline because its functionality fully depends on the GPS. The offline mode is easy to use and will not consume much space on your phone.

It is unnecessary to use your most updated phone; you may use a spare phone to connect as this system only needs the GPS and maps of your phone, and you can update maps where you find the internet.

The Dogtra Pathfinder Mini dog collar will keep you updated about the dog’s positions, Barking, and direction along with distance. This all information helps you to measure the performance and time and next plan of action.

You also can mark the property boundaries and other areas you do not want your dog to enter with the Geo-Fencing feature of Dogtra Pathfinder Mini. This is a great feature to use at your farmhouse and even at your home. Because of this system’s range, Geo-Fencing of large property such as farms becomes possible with this system.

Another special feature of this system makes it even better while using this system. The hunters can share the dogs with other hunters, which makes hunting in a group easier. Just keep it with you and turn on the GPS when required.

It takes less time to sync the positions, but it’s better to start it 5 minutes before when you need it.
