The first high-sensitivity GPS-enabled dog tracking system for hunters and sportsmen.
Pinpoint your dog’s position and see exactly where he is.
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.
Attach Collar and Go The Astro system includes a bright color-screen handheld
GPS device and the rugged, all-weather DC-30 collar.
The collar has an integrated GPS transmitter and is specially weighted so the
antenna will always point to the sky for optimum signal. To get started, just
take Astro outdoors and turn on the handheld and transmitter to acquire GPS
satellite signals. Then attach the DC-30 to your dog. 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-30 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
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, including a barometric altimeter,
electronic compass, microSD card slot, celestial information, area calculator
and rugged, IPX7 waterproof exterior.
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.
