I'm so tough on my phones, I already use a life proof case on it.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

Lyra, all I can say is bummer.... it seems impossible for the consumer (us) to work-around (w/cellphone, Bluetooth) what are government/corporate issues. Seems if Garmin knows there is demand in Europe they could work with EU's equivalent of our FCC (federal communications commission) to solve this (MURS/satelight?) issue? But maybe that is the point; they want to have a closed euro system.

I have loved the Garmin system for sometime; we have the old Rhinos for hiking/navigation also but getting the companies that work with the wavelength regulators to "sync up" will,probably either happen or it won't .

Hi In the Net, we are in Grand Rapids (also have place in Grand Haven) with couple hundred of acres (and beach) for dogs to run. I have an office in Detroit and come by your way weekly but my pup still doesn't like the car much. If you come by the west side of the state send us a message as we will be seeking out V clubs/folks with V's this year as we get to training our 10mo old pup.

I think the pup will be good for hunting (she supposedly has champion lines from Countryside Kennels in IL), and my hubby has fancied hunting for at least 2 decades. He's got the lucky dog retriever launcher, and an impressive gun collection. I have wanted a V ever since I saw one at a dog show 20 yrs ago and decided that was the sport dog for me. After our beloved German Shepard died last Dec. at 14yo that I would get 2 more dogs and one Had to be a Viszla.

So now we've got the dog and she runs great patterns, has a excellent nose and points everything in sight (she loves pointing and holding the GermShep then jumping him as soon as he breaks; it's Hysterical!!).

My guess is the dog will train quickly, it's the shooter I'm concerned about... lots of range, little field practice! :-X

If you hear of any good hunt meets etc. this summer, on either side of the state, please message us and we will be there! If/when I can get hubby out to S. Dakota I'd drop them both off at Ken's (WillowyndRanch) as he clearly is a premier authority in the U.S. at training these dogs.

P.S. We do like to run them, had day off today and took 2 hikes, then over to the place where we keep our horses. Countryside Kennels seemed to hunt via horseback and I'm wondering if that might be more efficient as keeping up with these dogs in the field is truly exhausting and I think horseback would have certain efficiencies/advantages?! I can see the advantage of tracking the dog from up high...also if you were going big like that in the field (trailering the horses etc.) I assume it's better to have at least a pair of dogs in the field??

Oh, I also have a separate shock/vibration collar Just starting to use to stop her from jumping on/dive bombing people she sees on trails as well as to keep her from chasing cars etc. Haven't tried shock mode just vibration as she's super sensitive to that.
