Garmin Astro® and DC™ 50 Dog Tracking Bundle
- 9-mile range with steel VHF antenna attached to a DC 50 (shorter antenna included for smaller dogs)
- Battery preserving rescue mode
- Track up to 10 dogs at a time (with purchase of additional dog devices)
- Top-mounted, high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS
- Advanced mapping with optional BirdsEye Satellite Imagery and TOPO maps

The Astro system includes the Astro 320 handheld and the rugged DC 50 transmitter collar with an orange polyurethane strap. The DC 50 features top mounted GPS and GLONASS receivers and a newly-redesigned steel VHF antenna. Switching to rescue mode reduces the refresh rate in order to preserve battery life, giving you up to 54 hours to look for a lost dog. Runs on 2 AA batteries (not included). Plus, Collar Lock creates a 4-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. The Astro 320, compatible with any DC-series transmitter, also has enhanced map drawing capabilities, BirdsEye Satellite Imagery compatibility (subscription required), vibration-based alerts and a 3-axis electronic compass.
