AbOUT RECHARGEAblE bATTERIES

• The Handheld Device and GPS Collar contain Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) batteries; never incinerate, puncture, deform, short-circuit, or charge with an inappropriate charger. Fire, explosion, property damage, or bodily harm may occur if this warning is not followed.

• Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Dispose of used batteries accordingly.

• Risk of explosion if batteries are charged in areas with high temperature (100°F+).

• Batteries should never be removed from the battery compartment for charging.

• The rechargeable Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) batteries are not memory sensitive, do not require depletion before charging and cannot be over charged.

• The batteries come partially charged from the factory, but will require a full charge before the first use.

• When storing the unit for long periods, remember to regularly give batteries a full charge. This should be done once every 3 to 4 months. Failure to do so will result in decreased battery life.

• You should expect hundreds of recharge cycles from your batteries. However, all rechargeable batteries lose capacity over time relative to the number of recharge cycles they experience.

This is normal. If your operating time drops to half of the original life, contact the Customer Care

Center.

• The batteries should last for a period of 3-5 years. When a battery needs replacement, call our

Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-0144. Please do not open the Handheld Device or GPS Collar.

• When storing the device for an extended time, store within the following temperature range: from

32°F to 77°F (from 0° to 25°C).

• Separate collection of spent batteries is required in many regions; check the regulations in your area before discarding spent batteries.

CHANGE COMMUNICATION SETTINGS

The COMMUNICATION screen allows you to set the User ID, GPS channel, and E-Collar channel

(optional). The User ID is a unique identifier used by the Handheld Device and shared with the GPS

Collar. 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 optional E-Collar module and the Handheld Device. The collar learns the User ID and

GPS 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 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 3).

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.

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.

3. Press the right arrow to confirm your selection.

4. At the prompt, “ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO CONTINUE?” select YES.

5. 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 3).

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.
