Change Communication Settings

The COMMUNICATION screen allows you to set the User ID, GPS channel, and E-Collar channel. The User ID is a unique identifier used by the Handheld Device and shared with the GPS Collar with E-Collar Module. The GPS-channel is the radio channel used for communication between the GPS Collar and the Handheld Device, while the E-Collar channel is the radio channel used for communication between the E-Collar Module and the Handheld Device. The collar learns the User ID, GPS channel, and E-Collar channel during the pairing process.

The Handheld Device uses an ID value to distinguish it from other Handheld Devices. This ID is factory set and for most users will never need attention. The ID value can be viewed on either the STATUS or ABOUT screens.

If the factory-set User ID on your Handheld Device conflicts with another Handheld Device or similar device, you should change the User ID to eliminate the conflict. Alternately, if two users want to have the ability to monitor the same dog(s) with each user operating his own Handheld Device, they can choose to set their User IDs to match.

The only reason to change the GPS or E-Collar channel is if there is outside interference (other radios in the area) causing communications problems.

TO CHANGE THE USER ID:
NOTE: Changing User ID requires that the collar be paired again to the handheld (See Step 4).

  1. From the main menu, select SETTINGS > COMMUNICATION > USER ID.
  2. Press the up or down arrows to select a user ID number from 0 – 100.
  3. NOTE: The User ID value is a number from 0 to 100 that is used to alter the actual ID value that the Handheld Device uses for communication. A value of 0 is used to revert back to the factory set ID.
  4. Press the right arrow to confirm your selection.
  5. At the prompt, “ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO CONTINUE?” select YES.
  6. Press BACK to return to the main menu.

TO CHANGE THE GPS CHANNEL:
NOTE: Changing GPS channel requires that the collar be paired again to the Handheld Device (See Step 4).

  1. From the main menu, select SETTINGS > COMMUNICATION >GPS CHANNEL.
  2. Press the right arrow key to toggle between available GPS channels, 1 to 5.
  3. At the prompt “ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO CONTINUE?” select YES.
  4. Press BACK to return to the main menu.

TO CHANGE THE E-COLLAR CHANNEL:
NOTE: Changing the E-Collar channel requires that the collars be paired again to the Handheld Device (see Step 4).

  1. From the main menu, select SETTINGS > COMMUNICATION >E-COLLAR CH.
  2. Press the right arrow key to toggle between available E-Collar channels, 1 to 5.
  3. At the prompt “ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO CONTINUE?” select YES.
  4. Press BACK to return to the main menu.
