I'm currently in the market for an e-collar for my new GSP pup. I really just need an e-collar for training right now, but ran across this GPS unit that was on sale. My question is pretty ignorant but is this unit purely a tracking unit or does it also give you the features a electric collar does for training? Im sorry for such an ignorant question.

I believe that is only a tracking unit. It's not a training collar.
If you're hunting a string of dogs everyday, you might need it.

Check Garmin's Delta Collar system or maybe a trainer by DT Systems.

Thanks guys, I thought so but just wanted to make sure because even to me its a good price. I think Ive settled on the Garmin Tri-tonics Pro 550 as my training collar. It has both vibrate and beep and looks pretty user friendly so I wont have to take my eyes off Amos to work it
