Alpha 100 Topo Map Question


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I got my Alpha 100 (and TT15 collar)  so far I'm very impressed with this unit.  Not too hard to figure out, but still learning.  Anyway, on the dog tracking map feature it's not showing any topo map, just the dogs route.  Do I need to purchase or download anything to get the topo map.  I've not yet loaded the Birdseye (have some issues).

 

So, what do I need to do?

 

Thanks as always!

The map should be preloaded.  You're in a pretty flat area and the map is 1-100,000 so the lines are going to be fairly far apart.  First thing you should try is to zoom out, which is the minus button on the map page.  You might start seeing the topo lines and features.

 

Other than that there is a setting where you can hide the map features.  I forget what that's called but I'm pretty sure it's something that's covered in the manual, which is not that great a document.

Plenty of youtube video's on how to use it and Gun dog supply has good video's.
