The Astro 320 DC40 GPS dog tracking system is the newest premier high-sensitivity GPS-enabled tracking system for hunters and sporting dogs. This unique GPS dog collar tracking system pinpoints your dog’s position and shows you exactly where he is, even if you can’t see or hear your dog. The new Astro 320 handheld GPS device has some new features that hunters have been asking for – , like a simplified user interface, increased range, and an improved mapping capability.
See Your Dogs' Every Move
The Astro dog tracking system includes the new redesigned Astro 320 and the rugged, orange polyurethane DC 40 transmitter GPS dog collar. The GPS tracking collar accommodates most e-collar receivers, eliminating the need to put two separate collars on a dog.
To get started, just take Astro 320 dog tracking system outdoors and turn on the handheld and transmitter to acquire GPS satellite signals. Then attach the DC 40 GPS transmitter to your dog. Now you’re ready to turn him loose — it's that easy, no other setup required.
Experience the Improved Astro 320
More intuitive and easier to use, the new improved Astro 320 takes GPS dog tracking to an entirely new level. The new interface streamlines what is displayed by allowing dogs that are outside the current zoom level to have their location notated in the display’s margin.
The Astro 320, compatible with any Garmin DC series transmitter, also debuts innovative features like enhanced map drawing capabilities, Bird's Eye Satelite Imagery compatibility (a subscription is required), vibration-based alerts and a 3-axis electronic compass.
Thanks to the redesigned antenna, the maximum range between the Astro 320 and a Garmin tracking collar has been increased by nearly 30 percent – up to 9 miles in flat, unobstructed terrain.
The Astro 320 dog tracking system is both durable and waterproof. The Astro 320 GPS dog tracking system is very tough and is built to withstand the elements be it dust, dirt, humidity or water.
Upgrade with Ease
Getting what you need for the hunt has never been easier. Hunters now have the option of purchasing the entire Astro 320 bundle, or as many DC 40 collars as you need. The Astro 320 is compatible with the old DC 30 series GPS dog collar.
Get Additional Mapping
With its micro SD card slot, Astro 320 lets you purchase and load TOPO US 24k maps for land elevation contours or City Navigator map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads. The Astro 320 also supports Bird's Eye Satellite Imagery (a subscription is 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 nearing a dangerous road.
The Astro 320 is also compatible with Garmin Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your Astro 320 dog tracking receiver.
Track Your Dogs in Dense Cover
As often as every 5 seconds, your dog’s DC 40 GPS dog collar transmits your dogs position to your Astro 320 handheld receiver, and you can see his current location and a trail of where he’s been on the map page of your handheld. You can also 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. The Astro 320 dog tracking system can also sound an alarm to let you know instantly when your dog goes on point.
The Astro 320 boasts a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that can track your dog’s position even in the thickest brush. You can track up to 10 dogs at one time with Astro 320, at a distance of up to 9 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 have 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. The Astro 320 dog tracking receiver lets you save other special waypoints, such as your "Truck" and "Lodge," so you can save the location of these places quickly and easily for each hunt. The Astro 320 also offers special waypoint icons to represent food plots, tree stands and other hunting related points.
