Garmin Astro 220 GPS Dog Tracking System

 

 

The New way to Keep Track
of your Dogs using GPS Technology

Garmin Astro 220 GPS Dog Tracking System

The Garmin Astro 220 is the GPS-enabled dog tracking system for hunters and dog owners alike. The unit is ready to go right out of the box and the Astro system will have you tracking your dogs in no time. This unique system pinpoints your dog's position every 5 seconds. You will know if your dog is pointing, sitting, moving or treeing. Where the dog is currently, where it has been and how fast the dog is moving as well as how far it's gone.

The Garmin Astro 220 is a Handheld GPS Dog Tracking Device that is specifically designed for hunters, but works very well for other outdoor dog activities that require tracking. Track your dogs in heavy cover without making a sound. Built tough enough to handle the rough terrain where your dog hunts. This is the first high sensitivity GPS-enabled dog tracking system for hunters and sportsmen. This unique system pinpoints your dogís position and shows you exactly where he is, even when you canít see or hear him.

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 youíre ready to turn him loose ó no other setup required.

The rugged Astro DC 30 collar / transmitter is a complete stand alone unit. The DC 30 has a top mounted, low profile GPS antenna and a side mounted "whip" antenna for the radio signal that sends the location information to the Astro handheld unit.

The Garmin Astro system consists of two components, a Handheld GPS unit (Astro 220) which looks like a two-way radio and a Dog GPS Collar Unit (Astro-DC-30) with a whip style antenna that transmits your dog's location via radio signal.

The Dog GPS computes its location from the GPS satellites and detects whether your dog is moving, on point, or treed. The Dog GPS sends that info to your Handheld GPS every 5 seconds. The Handheld GPS plots the exact location of your dog on a map, shows distance, and whether your dog is moving, on point or treed. On your Handheld GPS, the MAP SCREEN shows your location, your dog's location, and the path that your dog has hunted.

The full-featured Astro handheld has all the same functions as Garmin's top-line handheld outdoor devices, including a barometric altimeter, a microSD card slot for maps, celestial information and an area calculator, as well as optional detailed city street maps, over 6 million points of interest, and exact turn-by-turn directions. This unit has an extremely rugged construction, with an IPX7 waterproof exterior that can withstand full immersion in water up to 1-meter deep for up to 30 minutes, and a revolutionary 3-axis compass that works no matter how the handheld is oriented.
