IMPORTANT PRODUCT UPDATE:
If you plan to use this product outside of the USA, please be advised that the radio communication frequencies utilized for United States models of
the Garmin Alpha and Astro products may not be authorized for use in Europe.
To ensure compliance with local laws, the radio function that allows the
U.S. dog collar products to communicate with the handheld device will be
rendered inoperable when used in Europe.
Product versions with the Europe-restricted
modification will begin shipping in late 2013. For all products sold before this modification has been implemented,
the radio function will continue to operate normally; however, if you update the product's firmware or software to a new version that contains this modification, your product's radio function will be rendered inoperable.
