Garmin Vs. Dogtra Pathfinder

I’ve been out of hunting for a while but have been hunting a lot more lately, my old original Astro 220 is fine but I need to replace my collars, or I have considered just buying a new set up so that got me looking into the options and noticed the dogtra pathfinder 2 but don’t know anything about it, looks like UKC is all in on it and the price is attractive what do y’all think for the ones who’ve had both?

Pathfinder hands-down for 99% of coon hunting needs. I've had the old Garmin systems... and have used the Pathfinder 1 for four or five years now.... not once was I ever feeling like the Pathfinder wasn't doing the job for me. And I'd never want to go back to the subpar maps- clunky user interface of the Garmin line again.

If I was already invested in the garmin system I would probably stay in it... but now that I've used the pathfinder I wouldn't go back.

used the garmin 420 for years and then bought a pathfinder. The 420 is used as my back-up if the battery on my phone or collars or connector are not charged. If you need to let your buddies track your dog , you might keep the garmin... I hunt alone , love the maps, compass, and very easy to check battery charge on the whole pathfinder system.. You have your phone , a connector and collar that all has to be charged. I have had no problems with the pathfinder and, hate recalibrating the compass when using the garmin.
