Take your dog hunting and don't worry about losing your favorite hunting companion again! This is a top-mounted, high-sensitivity GPS enabled dog tracking system for sporting dogs. Track your dog’s every position and know exactly where he is at all times, even when you can’t see or hear him. This Combo Unit includes the newest, upgraded Astro 320 handheld and latest DC-50 transmitter collar!
The Garmin Astro system includes a bright color-screen handheld GPS device and a durable and rugged, orange polyurethane DC-50 collar. The collar strap accommodates most e-collar receivers — so just slip your compatible e-collar receiver right over the DC-50 strap and eliminate the need to put two separate collars on your dog.
Plus, prevent others from seeing your dog’s whereabouts with a special feature called the Collar Lock. The Collar Lock creates a four-digit PIN number for your unit — this is a useful feature in field trials to ensure that an Astro is used only as a recovery tool when a dog in competition becomes lost.
Quick and Easy Set-Up to this unit. To get started, just take Astro outdoors and turn on the handheld and transmitter to acquire GPS satellite signals. Then attach the DC-50 to your dog. Now you’re ready to turn him loose — no other setup required!
Track Dogs in Dense Cover
As often as every five seconds, your dog’s DC-50 transmits his position to your Astro 320 handheld. On the Map page of your handheld, you can track your dog's every location. Switch over to the Dog Tracker page to view a compass pointing to your dog’s location as well as his current status: view whether he’s running, sitting, on point or treeing quarry. The new three-axis electronic compass (available only on the Astro 320) lets hunters accurately view their dog’s position when holding the handheld at any angle.
When your dog goes on point, Astro can sound an alarm to notify you. In addition to audible alerts, Garmin has also incorporated a new vibration feature on the Astro 320. Astro boasts a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that can track your dog’s position even in the thickest of covers.
Using the Astro’s Covey Counter™, a special waypoint tells you the exact location, time of day and elevation where you found your prey, as well as the number of birds you flushed and took from that location. Mark special waypoints, such as "Truck" and "Lodge," so you can save the location of these places quickly and easily for each hunt. Astro also offers special waypoint icons to represent food plots, tree stands and other hunting-related points.
Don’t ever get lost in the woods again! The Astro will lead you back to your truck at the end of the day, or even back home again. In fact, the Astro handheld has all the features of Garmin’s top-line handheld outdoor devices, including a barometric altimeter, 3-axis electronic compass, microSD card slot, celestial information, area calculator and rugged, IPX7 waterproof exterior.
With optional detailed city street maps, you can search for over 6 million points of interest and create a route on roads with exact turn-by-turn directions.
Astro 320 Enhancements:
The Astro 320 improves user interface with a simpler menu structure and sophisticated graphics thanks to its vibrant, sunlight-readable 2.6” color display.
The 320 features a built-in worldwide basemap with shaded relief, plus support for enhanced mapping such as BirdsEye™ satellite imagery, Topo maps, and Garmin custom maps.
With an optional BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription, hunters can pinpoint buildings, powerlines, and even individual trees – directly on their Astro 320. Garmin’s free BaseCamp software allows hunters and trainers to download, view and save their dog’s tracks to a computer for viewing later – a great tool for evaluating performance.
This sturdy, well-made, tough handheld also has a built-in vibration motor to support silent alerts, a 3-axis digital compass (allowing the hunter to hold the handheld at any angle), improved reception range, a fully rubberized outer coating with an over molding for a better grip, a new keyboard design, and onboard memory for storing additional mapping (1.7 Gigs).
The new handheld also features a safety keypad lock so buttons aren’t accidentally pushed during the hunt. It sports an orange trim color that is especially handy for hunters to spot the unit if it falls out of your pocket or bag during a hunt or is simply misplaced. This unit has the ability to transfer waypoints, tracks, and even their dog’s tracking settings to other Garmin Astro320 users wirelessly.
