    OK sorted that for now
    Copied Fa_Piter's file to a SD card, opened the garmin file on the alpha. Copied from the SD card to the garmin folder then rebooted alpha. It showed a screen asking if I wanted to go ahead and load an older version ..... I selected yes and now I am in business.
    Will do a bit of proofing and make a responce if its all ok.

    The problem using a gcd file to downgrade many versions below the currently loaded one can be that the unit may sometimes refuse to load it. Use updater.exe and an rgn file for v3.10 if an amended gcd does fail. No need to change the version number in an rgn file.

    so, still no way to use US device with latest firmware in EU unless you downgrade to 3.10 but then you cant use t15 collars?

    @fear
    Correct that official fw version US 3.10 can use earlier TT10 collars but not T5/TT15 collars. The capability for T5/TT15 was added in V3.70. EU freq lockout was in V3.20. Therefore T5/TT15 cannot work with V3.20 or lower and no US collar will work with V3.20 or higher official firmwares in EU, read change history:

    I have a question regarding the "EU" legal devices, Would these be the same altered freq units that are for sale in other parts of the world ( I am specifically thinking of my own 'lil 'ole NZ )
    I'm guessing yes , as I dont really see a big company like Garmin bothering to taylor freq a unit for our country, but it would appear if you believe the hype of a local company that they pow wowed with Garmin and "made it happen"
    That sort of drivel annoys the heck outta me!

    Garmin NZ sells Alpha 100 there, and if you believe their website Astro 430, both bundled with T5 collar and the TT15 is offered too:
    Code:

    But, according to the differing frequencies allowable on each side of the ditch, the AU and NZ devices aren't legally usable in the other country:

    However the Astro is identified as the AU model:
    Code:

    So one or the other is wrong.

    You're quite right to be cynical about them collaborating with a local mob to bring in any frequency-altered grey imports.

    They wont repair any other alpha gear from competitors ( which is their right I guess, but it seems to me a bullying tactic for having to buy from them )

    Reading their material it seems on face value that their imported collars are indeed altered to NZ authorised frequencies and the strong implication is that they have been set to those frequencies by Garmin US although that's not directly categorically claimed, but it's very clearly claimed that Garmin has approved the changes [why wouldn't they when it makes their kit legal to use there]. They further justify not servicing/repairing any illegal gear by saying they don't want to be in possession of same.

    Default alpha 100 + TT15

    Is there any working solution to get Alpha 100 to work with TT15 collars in europe? My alpha and collars are so called US version.

    Have read a lot about this but haven't find any real solution yet.

    Any ideas or links are welcome. Or if you know how to do it send me message
