Garmin Astro 220 Hunting and Dog Tracking GPS
Garmin DC 20 Dog Tracker
| || || |
Tired of searching for your hunting dog in tall grass or dense cover? Now you can leave the hunting entirely to him. Introducing the Garmin Astro, the first high sensitivity GPS-enabled dog tracking system for hunters and sportsmen. This unique system pinpoints your dog's position and shows you exactly where he is, even when you can't see or hear him.
Attach Collar and Go
The Garmin Astro system includes a bright color-screen handheld GPS device and a wireless transmitter, called the Garmin DC 30. To get started, just take the Garmin Astro outdoors and turn on the handheld and transmitter to acquire GPS satellite signals. Then attach the Garmin DC 30 to your dog with its included collar. 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 20 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. The Garmin Astro can also sound an alarm to let you know instantly when your dog goes on point.
The Garmin 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 the Garmin Astro, at a distance of up to five 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 the Garmin 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. The Garmin 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. The Garmin Astro also offers special waypoint icons to represent food plots, tree stands and other hunting-related points.
Experience Full-featured GPS
The Garmin 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 Garmin Astro handheld has all the features of Garmin's top-line handheld outdoor devices, including a barometric altimeter, microSD card slot, celestial information, area calculator, rugged, IPX7 waterproof exterior and a revolutionary 3-axis compass, which works no matter how the handheld is oriented. 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.
The Garmin Astro: GPS-enabled dog tracking system.
New Garmin DC 30!
This rugged, all-weather collar has an integrated GPS transmitter and antenna that work with the Garmin Astro 220 to ensure that your dog will never be lost again. Plus, it's specially weighted so the antenna will always point to the sky for optimal signal. The design also integrates a new, extremely flexible antenna into the collar, built to take the abuse of the most challenging hunts. The Garmin DC 30 is compatible with current Garmin Astro 220 units.
Attach Collar and Go
When teamed up with the Garmin Astro 220, the Garmin DC 30 system will have you hunting in no time. The Garmin DC 30, in combination with the Garmin Astro 220, pinpoints your dog's position every 5 seconds and runs for 17 hours. You can extend the battery life of the Garmin DC 30 by changing the position transmit rate from 5 to 10 or 30 seconds, enabling the Garmin DC 30 to work up to 36 hours in the field on one charge. You will know if your dog is pointing, sitting, moving or treeing. Where it's at. Where it's been. How fast it's moving and how far it's gone.
