Tired of searching for your hunting dog in tall grass or dense cover? Now you can leave the hunting entirely to him. Astro is the premier high sensitivity GPS-enabled dog tracking system for sporting dogs. This unique system pinpoints your dog's position and shows you exactly where he is, even when you can't see or hear him.
Release the hounds and know what they're up to with Astro, the GPS-enabled dog tracking system for hunters.
The rugged, all-weather DC40 collar combines a high-sensitivity GPS receiver and VHF antenna into an all-in-one transmitter.
The Astro handheld has all the features of Garmin's top-line handheld outdoor devices.
Tall grass. Short dog. Game on.
See Your Dogs' Every Move
The Astro system includes a bright color-screen handheld GPS device and the rugged, orange polyurethane DC 40 collar. The collar accommodates most e-collar receivers--eliminating the need to put two separate collars on a dog. Plus, Collar Lock creates a four-digit PIN number that helps prevent others from seeing your dog's whereabouts--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.
To get started, just take Astro outdoors and turn on the handheld and transmitter to acquire GPS satellite signals. Then attach the DC 40 to your dog. Now you're ready to turn him loose--no other setup required.
The rugged, all-weather collar is made of durable one-inch orange polyurethane, ready to stand up to the elements and the hunt.
Track Dogs in Dense Cover
As often as every five seconds, your dog's DC 40 transmits his position to your handheld, and you can see his current location and a trail of where 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 sound an alarm to let you know instantly when your dog goes on point.
Astro boasts a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that can track your dog's position even in the densest cover. You can track up to ten dogs at one time with Astro, at a distance of up to seven miles away (depending on terrain). The system transmits information by line-of-sight, so it reaches farthest in flat, open territory.
Count Your Coveys
After you've captured your quarry, mark the exact spot with Astro's Covey Counter, a special waypoint that 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. Astro lets you save other 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.
Experience Full-Featured GPS
Astro shines when you're out on the hunt, but it also excels in getting 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.
The barimetric altimeter provides elevation profiles for climbers and hikers, and the electronic compass ensures you get a good bearing. Handy tools like an area calculator and celestial information help you plan your day. 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; or download TOPO maps complete with elevation information. Finally, the Astro 220 features a rugged, IPX7 waterproof exterior, ready to take on incliment weather without a hitch.
