Garmin’s Premier Dog Tracking System

The Garmin Astro 320 is a cutting edge dog tracking system that accurately detects your dog’s position using highly sensitive, top-mounted GPS and GLONASS receivers. The system includes the Astro 320 handheld and the new and improved DC 50 transmitter collar with an orange polyurethane strap and rechargeable, long-lasting (26 to 54 hours) lithium-ion battery. This innovative and easy to use system allows you to quickly and easily locate your dogs, even in heavy tree cover or deep canyons. The Astro 320 accurately tracks up to 10,000 points of information per dog and can be customized to display a combination of your dog’s name, direction, distance and status, all without leaving your map so you stay focused on where you’re going. With the Astro 320 sharing a dog with a friend is no problem. Wirelessly send, receive or transfer a dog's name, ID and update rate between units. You can also track up to 10 dogs at a time with additional DC 50 collars.

Garmin's Astro 320 features a vivid 2.6” color screen with transflective technology and a 160 x 240 pixel resolution so you can easily view your dog’s position. Garmin has made several improvements to the Astro system including a more simplified user interface, more durable antenna, improved mapping capabilities and increased range and battery life. Designed to be rugged and waterproof, meeting IPX7 standards, the Astro 320 withstands harsh outside conditions. With its heavy duty steel antenna and highly sensitive GPS and GLONASS receivers, you can track your dog up to a range of 9 miles, depending on the terrain. The dog’s position will be transmitted to your handheld by the DC 50 as often as every 5 seconds or you can set the unit to receive updates at 10, 30 or 120-second intervals.

In addition, the Bark Detection Feature will let you know if your dog is barking when out of audible range, a valuable feature for use with dogs that cover a lot of ground. Customize your screen by choosing the amount of information displayed of each dog’s tracklog or turn it off completely. Dogs that are outside of the current zoom level will have their data displayed in the margin to decrease clutter and further streamline your display. No need to worry if your dog becomes lost. The Rescue Mode preserves battery life providing you with even more time to search for your dog while the Collar Lock feature with a 4-digit PIN protects against unauthorized users seeing your dog’s whereabouts. Know your dogs’ every move by switching to the Dog Tracker page to view a 3-axis electronic compass that points you to your dog’s exact location and be informed of his current status; running, sitting, pointing, or treeing quarry. Vibration based alerts allow you stay quiet on the hunt.

Get additional mapping with Astro 320’s microSD card slot. Astro 320 is compatible with Garmin Custom Maps and supports BirdsEye Satellite imagery (available with a subscription) to integrate with your maps. Plus, choose to purchase TOPO U.S. 24K to view land elevation contours and/or City Navigator to receive turn-by-turn directions on roads. Once you have captured your quarry you can mark the exact spot with the Convey Counter feature. This special waypoint tells you the location, time and day, and elevation where you found your prey, as well as the number of birds you flushed and took from that location. You can also plan your next trip utilizing BaseCamp software, a free trip-planning software that lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes, and tracks which is then displayed topographically in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen. You can even turn your computer into a base station for tracking dogs with the all new Base Station feature that allows you to view real time satellite information on your computer. Done hunting? Simply switch profiles and use your Astro 320 for recreational, automotive, marine, geocaching, and fitness purposes. With its new and improved easy to use features, reliability, and premium tracking capabilities, the Astro 320 Dog Tracking System is your essential hunting companion.

The DC 50 is compatible with the Astro 320 handheld only (software upgrade required). It does not work with Astro 220 or Alpha handhelds.
