New… Dog Training Collars

Radioworld is proud to add the Tri-Tronics line of Dog Training Collars to our line-up of products. Visit our website here and check out the lineup today!

About the company and their products:


Tri-Tronics is the only major electronic dog training collar company that builds its products in the USA. We know it costs more to make our products in the U.S. but we think it’s worth it because the quality is better, we can react more quickly to customers’ needs, and it’s just the right thing to do.


All Tri-Tronics products are high quality, durable and reliable. We understand that when you go  to train your dog or to hunt, it is essential that your training equipment works every time you press the button – no excuses. We also understand that there must be a consistency in the way that your training equipment works so that your dog does not get confused. Finally, we know that your training equipment will be subjected to some very harsh environments and that it has to be built to withstand such environments. We have spent the last 40 years designing and building products that meet these needs. We have hundreds of thousands of happy customers who will vouch for our quality.


We have worked closely with all sorts of dogs for many years to develop stimulation schemes that are safe and effective. Our stimulation schemes are designed to give you enough choices to find a stimulation level that will work with the temperament of your dog without making the product too complex. We also have developed a tone sound and a buzz sound which can be used for praise, warning, recall or other commands.


We understand that your dog is very important to you and we go to extra lengths to make sure our products won’t harm your dog. We provide an automatic safety cutoff of all stimulation after a button has been held down for 8 seconds. In order to avoid accidental stimulations, there is a no-stim position on most of our products which makes it impossible for the product to stimulate your dog. There is also a specially designed guard to prevent a button from being accidently pressed. We have specially designed contact points made of stainless steel to avoid any neck irritation issues on your dog.


Our products consistently achieve the specified range. When we say the range of our product is 1 mile, it is 1 mile. Although the range of our products can be adversely affected by topography, foliage and weather, we have designed our products so that they can still be effective in those types of environments.


Most of our models can be easily and quickly expanded into multi-dog systems (up to 6 dogs in some models) by just adding receivers. The additional receivers can be matched in the field to the transmitter by simply pressing a button. The transmitters have dials which will allow you to quickly go from one dog to another and the color coded dial matches the collar strap colors so that you always know what dog you are working with.


All of our remote trainers use our patented insulated contact points for reliable performance in wet conditions. These contact points are interchangeable (long or short) for different coat thicknesses. The patented contact points are also made from stainless steel to minimize any neck irritation on the dog.


Our proprietary charging system allows indefinite charging without damage and produces a full charge in two hours. Our charging adapters eliminate the need for a jack or plug on the receiver. We also have battery life indicators on all transmitters and receivers so you know when to charge the system or replace the battery.


All of our transmitters have short (1 1/2″ – 2 1/2″) fixed antennas so that you don’t have to worry about the antennas breaking off or coming loose when you are in the field. These fixed antennas provide a more consistent range.


All of our transmitters allow easy one-hand operation without having to take your eyes off your dog so that you can be more precise in the timing of your stimulation.


Most of our transmitters allow you to remotely operate our accessories through the use of a patented short-range communication system.





Lowrance Expert Day at Radioworld

Bring all your questions to the experts from Lowrance and Simrad to get the answers on these marine systems.  We will have informal small group seminars running throughout the day from 10am-1pm at Radioworld 4335 Steeles Ave W in Toronto.  If you have already bought a unit and are interested in learning how to use it, or if you are in the market this is the day you won’t want to miss.

Garmin Fit App and ANT+ adapter

I love all things Apple, and when I found this little add-on from Garmin, I thought it was pretty cool.

Turn your iPhone 4 or 3GS into a personal training tool. Plug in the ANT+ adapter into the bottom of the phone, download the app, connect to your favourite fitness sensors such as the heart rate monitor, cadence sensor or foot pod and get live workout data.

Work Out Smarter. Not Harder.

Garmin Fit lets you make the most of your exercise routine. It puts a wealth
of valuable data right at your fingertips. Using your smartphone’s GPS, the app
tracks your movements and provides you with your current speed, distance
traveled, elapsed time and calories burned. Plus, with the built-in music
features, you can easily select the perfect soundtrack for your workout.

At the completion of your workout, the app automatically uploads your workout
data to the Garmin Connect™ website. There, you can view your route on a map,
easily track your progress, share your workouts with others and much more.

Add Fitness Sensors

The Garmin Fit app was designed to be used with a wide range of wireless
fitness sensors. Easily monitor how hard you’re working with a heart rate
monitor, train indoors with a foot pod, or receive valuable cycling data with a
speed/cadence sensor.


The app can be downloaded from iTunes for 99 cents click here for a direct link.
