The intuitive and easy-to-use Astro system takes dog tracking to an entirely new level with new software for the 320 which supports the DC 50 dog device and adds new features such as bark detection. The inteface streamlines what is displayed by allowing dogs that are outside the current zoom level to have their location notated in the display's margin. The user can also choose the amount of each dog's tracking displayed, or toggle it off completely, to avoid cluttering the map.
The Astro 320, compatible with any Garmin DC series transmitter, also debuts innovative features like enhanced map drawing capabilities, BirdsEye Satellite imagery compatibility (subscription required), vibration-based alerts and a 3-axis electronic compass. Both durable and waterproof, the Astro 320 system features the legendary toughness that's built to withstand the elements - whether it's dust, dirt, humidity or water, nothing is a match for this essential hunting companion.
As often as every 5 seconds, your dog's DC 50 transmits his position to your handheld, and you can see his current location and a trail of where's he's been on the map page of your handheld. Switch over to the Dog Tracker page to view a compass pointing to your dog's location as well as his current status: whether he's running, sitting, on point or treeing quarry. Astro can also let you know when your dog is barking, even if he's out of audible range.. Astro boasts a high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS receiver which is mounted to the top of the collar so that it can can track your dog's position even in heavy tree cover or deep canyons. You can track up to 10 dogs at one time with Astro, from up to 9 miles away (depending on terrain). The system transmits information by line-of-sight, so it reaches farthest in flat open territory.In the Box
