Customer Question

My Alpha 100 reports when my dog is on point but if the handheld is on a string around my beck the vibration is useless. Similarly the tone is set too low to hear when 18 inches from my neck and tramping through the field. In addition the tone and vibration should be continuous until reset by me. Knowing a dog I can't c is on point and knowing it quickly is important.
Can I change this or can u guys change it remotely via software?

Hi Randall,

It isn't possible to change how the device works, as these features are part of the device's internal programming and cannot be changed.

However you could try and get it to work better for you by fixing it in a harness attached tightly to your body so that you feel it when it vibrates.
