This unit allows you to zoom in very close and still see a lot of real estate while being zoomed in. This brings the clarity/detail of the Birdseye view to an entirely different level because you can see exactly where your dog is with respect to water, roads, houses, and even stands. When I was messing with it the other day, I had a collar hanging in a bush in my front flowerbed. With the drivetrack’s level of detail I could see that the collar was in the front yard of my house and could almost tell which bush it was in. Amazing and useful.

I got to do a lot of testing with the drivetrack 70 but none of that compared to actually using it.. One day of using the Drive Track 70 running dogs and you will never want to look at your alpha screen again. Also with the much larger screen I highly recommend Birdseye imagery It has great resolution and you can monitor a much larger block of woods without having to zoom in and out so much.
