Couple thoughts on Garmin

I know they are expensive, but here is an observation to think about..

Bought my original Alpha four years ago, it's worked flawlessly up unitl about a week ago.. Will track dogs on the map, but not the compass and developed a yellow spot about the size of a quarter in the screen.

I did a master reset and it cured the compass problem for about three trips, the yellow spot was not affected.

Called Garmin this morning and I am sending it in and they are shipping me a new/refurbished unit for $117.00 all in..

So I paid $750 for the unit 4 years ago, have another $117.00 in it and if I get another 4 years out of it I will be at about a $100/year for this product.. Hard to beat in my opinion.. Hard to beat.

Yep, I like the Dogtra maps better, initial cost is cheaper, hate the fact that you have to use a cell phone - just hate it...

Garmin is just at another level in customer service and options after the sale..
