The Garmin T5 Mini GPS Collar is a small tracking only collar that will work with Alpha 100 and Astro 430 dog tracking handheld. It suits most working dogs and hunting dogs from 7kg in weight. The T5 mini collar has up to 5 km range and rechargeable with 4 hours fast charge (up to 30 hours per full charge). The waterproof rating is IPX7 (up to 1 metres under water).
The Rescue Mode increases the amount of time before a collar battery dies. This allows more time to locate the dog. This mode can be activated automatically or manually. When it is manually activated, the collar’s update rate will drop to every 2 minutes to ping the ALPHA handheld to extend the battery life. The Rescue Mode stays on until it is turned off. When the battery of the collar drops to 25%, it will be activated automatically.

High-Sensitivity GPS/GLONASS Receiver
The Garmin T5 mini collar has built in Standard GPS satellite receiver as well as the GLONASS satellite receiver. The GLONASS is the Russian Navigation Satellite System which has 24 orbital satellites. It is the second alternative navigational system in operation with GPS.
