Garmin DC-50 GPS Collar Review

The Garmin DC 50 GPS Collar features a high-sensitivity, top mounted Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) and GPS enabled receiver. The new stainless steel braided VHF antenna adds additional reliability and extends the range. Plus, the Garmin DC-50 collar now has bark detection. The collar is 100% waterproof and submergible up to 10M. With additional DC-50 collars, you can track up to 10 dogs simultaneously using one Garmin Astro 320. The dog's position can be updated on the handheld every 5, 10, 30, or 120 seconds. Unfortunately, the DC-50 is only compatible with the Garmin Astro 320 handheld - it does not work with the Astro 220 or the Garmin Alpha handhelds.
