Garmin Astro 220 Dog Tracking GPS Receiver
Tired of searching for your hunting dog in tall grass or dense cover? Now you can leave the hunting entirely to him. Introducing 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. The Astro system includes a bright color-screen handheld GPS device and a wireless transmitter, called the DC 20. To get started, just take Astro outdoors and turn on the handheld and transmitter to acquire GPS satellite signals. Then attach the DC 20 to your dog, either with the included dog harness or by threading it onto a 1" e-collar. Now you're ready to turn him loose - no other setup required.
As often as every 5 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. 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 10 dogs at one time with Astro, at a distance of up to 5 miles away (depending on terrain).
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, including a barometric altimeter, electronic compass, microSD card slot, celestial information, area calculator and rugged, IPX7 waterproof exterior.
