Garmin Astro and DC 50 Dog Tracking Bundle
The Garmin® Astro® and DC™ 50 Dog Tracking Bundle pinpoints your dog's position and shows you exactly where he is on a vivid color screen, even when you can't see or hear him. The improved Astro system has the features you've been asking for, such as increased range and battery life, more durable antenna, a simplified user interface and must-have mapping capability. 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 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. Using the Bark Detection features, the Astro also can let you know when your dog is barking, even if he's out of audible range, a crucial feature for treeing hounds or running hounds that cover a lot of ground, even in heavy cover.
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.Manufacturer model #: 010-01133-00.
