OLATHE, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced a new PRO Control 2 remote receiver, designed for serious
sporting dog trainers, field trialers, and hunt testers. When paired
with the PRO Control 2 handheld, the new system provides reliable and
consistent control of launchers, releasers, and other accessory devices
(accessory devices sold separately).
“The new PRO Control 2 remote receiver really is the final piece of the
puzzle that completes the lineup of electronic dog tracking and training
tools from Garmin, built on the proven reliability that Tri-Tronics®
has been known for,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of
worldwide sales. “Whether it’s training or tracking, Garmin has the
right product with all the right features for serious dog trainers.”
Trainers can configure up to 18 PRO Control 2 remote receivers to one
handheld, and two devices can be connected to each remote receiver. The
remote receiver can be activated separately, simultaneously (to simulate
a flock of birds), or in a rapid sequence. The PRO Control 2 remote
receiver can be triggered wirelessly over half a mile away.
Sounds on the PRO Control 2 remote receiver are vastly improved as well
– both in terms of volume and sound quality. The unit features a
realistic mallard hail call, an attention-getting “hey, hey, hey” voice,
and a tone. For an even louder volume, the remote receiver can be
connected to a powered speaker (sold separately) via the 3.5mm audio
For even more versatility, users can custom-load their own sound files
onto the PRO Control 2 remote receiver, via Garmin
Express. Loaded with other wildlife sounds, the PRO Control 2 system
can pull double duty as a compact, long-range electronic predator or
goose call1. This capability will be available
beginning in the second quarter of 2016.
The PRO Control 2 remote receiver is powered by a rechargeable
lithium-ion battery that provides up to 200 launches between charges.
The unit is water rated IPX7 (withstands incidental exposure of water up
to a depth of one meter of water for 30 minutes). The PRO Control 2
system is backwards compatible with legacy Tri-Tronics Pro Control
components as well.
The PRO Control 2 remote receiver has a minimum retail price (MRP) of
$179.99, or can be purchased as a bundle with the PRO Control 2 handheld
for an MRP of $299.99.

segment, which focuses on developing technologies to enhance users’
outdoor experiences and their relationships with their canine
companions. Whether it’s handhelds, wearables, action cameras, or dog
training systems, Garmin devices are essential tools for outdoor
