With this system, that is not an option. The only way to tell which collar is active is to look at the display. That slows the process. The same is true of stim level. While some might always, or nearly always, use the same level, my dogs require a significant increase when they're in a drive, or intent on what they're doing. It's difficult, and slow, to make the necessary adjustments, especially if I don't have that dog selected.
When using this at night, having to look at the brightly lit display quickly destroys your night vision.
I also have found the system to be slow. From the time I hit the button, until I see a reaction on the dog, is longer than it ever was on my Tri-Tronics units, and the farther away the dog is, the longer the reaction time. While that may seem to make sense, the speed of the signal should make this unnoticeable, especially when we're talking about a hundred yards on a unit with a 3/4 mile range.
I've always habitually turned the stim level to 0 when putting my remote in my pocket, to prevent accidentally activating a collar. This is another issue, since it's much slower to get the remote back to ready.
I could deal with most of this, if it were not for the collar selection issue, which is the worst of the it. The G3 and older units were much faster and easier to use, without having to waste the time to look at the remote before activating the collar.
The fact that the add-on collars, etc, are not backwards compatible makes the whole thing that much worse, because if you have a problem with an older system, or want to add a dog, you'll shortly be forced to "upgrade" to this system, or go to another brand that still has intuitive, easy to use, remotes.
I will never understand why companies feel the need to buy out a successful manufacturer, and then change their successful line for the worse.
Update: After a month with the Delta Sport, I have given up and returned it. I suspect the unit I received was defective, in addition to the issues I mentioned above.
First, I frequently found myself hitting the button on the remote, to activate the collar of a dog who was 100 feet away, and getting no response. Moving closer, usually within 20 feet, hitting that same button, on the same stim level, I would finally get a response. This happened dozens of times, in varying locations, which tells me that it was not a situation of terrain (all of which was flat), or competing radio signals/interference, especially when I was in a four acre field, surrounded by water or woods, where there simply aren’t a lot of electronics in use. At the same time, I stood next to others, who had different brands of collars, and even some other Garmin users, who were not having an issue.
The only system Garmin makes that could provide everything I was looking for, with an intuitive remote, was the Pro 550, and since I could get all of the features I needed at a much lower price from Sport Dog, I now have a Sport Dog ProHunter 2525. While I would’ve liked the LEDs on the Pro 550, I don’t need the Barklimiter, since, despite barking being a problem in one of my dogs, he has already figured out that he simply has to stop barking briefly, and then can start over. I have to manually control his barking, with the remote.
My new remote, much like the old ones, has a dial, a toggle switch, and three buttons. It has 17 training modes, 27 stim levels, plus tone and vibrate. I’ve had it for five hours, two of which it was charging, and I can already operate it without looking. I currently have two dogs on it, and can control up to six. Unlike the Delta Sport, I never have to worry about the training mode getting changed accidentally. That happened multiple times in the month I had the Delta Sport.
The Sport Dog system I got is more expensive than the Delta Sport, but still significantly less than the Pro 550, and it's providing what I want, and need, in a remote collar.
If you're considering the Delta Sport, save yourself a headache, and go look at Sport Dog collars. I never imagined myself saying that, considering all of the people I helped get into a Tri-Tronics collar over the years, but unless Garmin finds its way to making something as good as what Tri-Tronics put out, at the 'sport' level, I won't be able to recommend their training collars.
I like this one because you have options of tone, vibrate and a very low shock which is not super awful. How do I know this? BECAUSE I PUT it on MY NECK and SHOCKED MYSELF. Look, I have heard how trainers are against this so ITHOUGHT I BETTER SHOCK ME BEFORE PUTTING ON MY DOG. Basically, it's a wake up call.
For comparison, I did have an older collar that my dad gave to me and that shock collar was harsher. I did use it on my dog though to stop her from chasing after motorcycles and dumptrucks and buses when we were on walks. It worked.
Getting back to the Garmin...
It is awesome. Initially, I put the collar on her and let her run loose at our lake cabin. When I called her and she did not come, I would press the tone button. If she ignored it, I would press the vibrate button. If she ignored vibrate, I pressed the shock button starting at "one." I would give her a short shock on the lowest setting and she did not respond until I increased it up to 8. Then she came. She now comes when called or when she hears the tone. However, if she ignores my call and the tone and vibrate, I again start with the shock.
The bark function does not always work because the collar moved from her neck because she is very active and it slides across her silky fur. So, when I put it one notch tighter, and noted her response. It did not bother her and then the bark function worked when it is placed in front of her throat.
The instructions were a bit unclear and I had to go online to understand them. At first, I thought mine was not working. The instructions stated that if you buy the bundle, that they should be paired. Mine was not paired. So, I paired mine. Because of this, I wanted to give it a four star, but I really am rating the product and the product is 5 stars.
Garmin, if you ever read this, please have a nontechnical person read your instructions and try to set up your products and use them. Your instructions are missing some steps. For example, the paring instructions are poor. I had to go to UTUBE to learn how to pair it.
I also needed to learn more how the mode functions worked. All in all, it's a good product because I can still get my dog to come if she is exploring our forest and fixated on something.
Most importantly, it keeps my dog alive because I can stop her from running towards something dangerous.
