How does Bark line (Barking tail) drawing work?

Quick answer: 



The following instructions apply to Tracker GPS devices starting with software version v1.25.00


The drawing of the "Bark line" / "Barking tail" begins:

- When the dog has barked at least 4 times in the last 10sec

The "Bark line" / "Barking tail"  drawing ends:

- When the dog is 10sec without barking

Effect on calculating the Total Barking time:

- Barking time is calculated in full minutes, so even when just a short section of the barking line has been drawn, it is taken into account within these Bark time calculations

- As of GPS devices with SW v1.25.00, the calculation of "Dog barking" / "Dog not barking" -modes and Barking time is calculated by Tracker GPS device, in which case it does not depend on the target's position update frequency set via the application




More information:
