Astro is the premier high-sensitivity GPS-enabled tracking system for sporting dogs. This unique system pinpoints your dog'sposition and shows you exactly where he is, even when you can't see or hear him. The new Astro 320 handheld GPS device has features that hunters have been asking for - like increased range, a simplified user interface and must-have mapping capability.
See Your Dogs' Every Move
The Astro system includes the redesigned Astro 320 and the rugged, orange polyurethane DC™ 40 transmitter collar. The collaraccommodates most e-collar receivers, eliminating the need to put two separate collars on a dog. 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 competitionbecomes lost.
To get started, just take Astro outdoors and turn on the hand heldand transmitter to acquire GPS satellite signals. Then attach theDC 40 to your dog. Now you're ready to turn him loose - no other setup required.
Experience the Improved Astro 320
More intuitive and easier to use, the new Astro 320 takes dog tracking to an entirely new level. Compatible with any Garmin DCseries transmitter, Astro 320 debuts innovative features like enhanced map drawing capabilities, BirdsEye™ Satellite Imagery compatibility (subscription required), vibration-based alerts and a 3-axis tilt-compensated compass.
Thanks to the redesigned antenna, the maximum range between the Astro 320 and a Garmin tracking collar has been increased bynearly 30 percent - up to 9 mi in flat, unobstructed terrain.
Both durable and waterproof, Astro 320 is built to withstand the elements. It features the legendary toughness that's built to withstand the elements - be it dust, dirt, humidity or water, none of which are a match for this essential hunting companion.
Upgrade with Ease
Getting what you need for the hunt is now a little easier. Hunters have the option of purchasing the entire Astro bundle, a stand-alone Astro 320 or as many DC 40 collars as necessary. And if you do get the 320, remember it's compatible with every DC series dog collar.
Get Additional Mapping
With its microSD™ card slot, Astro 320 lets you purchase and load TOPO U.S. 24K maps for land elevation contours or City NavigatorNT® map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads (see maps tab for compatible maps). Astro 320 also supports BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required), that lets you download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps. Mapping depicts important nearby geographical features - and lets hunters know, for example, if their dog has crossed a creek or is nearinga dangerous road.
In addition, Astro 320 is compatible with Garmin Custom Maps,free software that transforms paper and electronic maps intodownloadable maps for your device.
Track Dogs in Dense Cover
As often as every 5 seconds, your dog's DC 40 transmits hisposition to your handheld, and you can see his current locationand 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 toyour dog's location as well as his current status: whether he'srunning, sitting, on point or treeing quarry. Astro also can soundan alarm to let you know instantly when your dog goes on point.
Each dog's precise distance also can be presented on the mappage, and users can choose an option that auto zooms the map soall dogs can be seen on the display at any time. Alternately, dogsthat are too far away to fit on the map's current zoom scale canbe notated on the display's margin in the direction of the dog'slocation. The user also can choose the duration that each dog'stracklog is viewed on the display - or toggle it off completelyfor a cleaner display.
Astro boasts a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that can track yourdog's position even in the densest cover. You can track up to 10dogs at one time with Astro, at a distance of up to 9 mi away(depending on terrain). The system transmits information byline-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 fromthat 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.
