Garmin Astro 220 GPS Dog Tracking System
At Super Cool Pets bird dogs have been our lifelong companions. We do not hunt, but if you are a hunter, you may be interested in the Garmin Astro GPS Dog Tracking System. This system is specifically designed for bird hunters, but is effective for other types of tracking as well.
- Handheld GPS device and wireless transmitter with up to 5-mile range
- 3-axis compass works regardless of orientation and shows dog's location
- Shows dog's status, such as running, sitting, on point or treeing quarry
- Includes barometric altimeter, microSD card slot, celestial information and an area calculator
- Rugged construction has an IPX7 waterproof exterior
HOW IT WORKS: The Garmin Astro system consists of two components: a Handheld GPS unit (Astro 220) which looks like a walkie-talkie and a Dog GPS Unit (Astro-DC-20) with an antenna which is mounted on a harness or collar and transmits via radio signal.
The Dog GPS computes its location from the GPS satellites and detects whether your dog is moving or on point. 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 or on point. On your Handheld GPS, the MAP SCREEN shows your location, your dog's location, and the path that your dog has hunted.
