Buy Garmin Astro 220 online
Buy Garmin Astro 220 online. Are you tired of looking through thick grass or deep cover for your hunting dog? You may now completely delegate the hunting to him. Astro is the most advanced GPS-enabled dog tracking system available for sports dogs. Even when you can’t see or hear your dog, our innovative method pinpoints his location and displays you precisely where he is.
Observe Your Dogs at All Times
The Astro system comprises a portable GPS gadget with a brilliant color screen and a tough polyurethane collar. Most e-collar receivers are compatible with the collar, which eliminates the need for a dog to wear two different collars. Collar Lock also generates a four-digit PIN that prevents outsiders from viewing your dog’s location – a critical feature in field trials to guarantee that an Astro is only used as a recovery tool if a dog in competition gets lost.
Simply take Astro outside and switch on the handheld and transmitter to begin receiving GPS satellite signals. After that, put the collar on your dog. You’re now ready to let him go – no more preparation is necessary.
In Dense Cover, Track Dogs
Your dog’s collar sends his location to your handheld every five seconds or so, and you can see his current location and a trail of where he’s been on the Map tab of your handheld.
To see a compass pointing to your dog’s position as well as his present status: whether he’s running, sitting, on point, or treeing quarry, go to the Dog Track page. Astro may also set up an alert to notify you when your dog is on point.
Astro is equipped with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that can monitor your dog’s whereabouts even in the thickest of cover. Astro allows you to track up to 10 dogs at once at a distance of up to 7 miles (depending on terrain). Because the technology communicates data by line-of-sight, it travels the furthest on flat, open terrain.
Count the number of coveys you have.
After you’ve caught your prey, use Astro’s Covey CounterTM to mark the precise area with a specific waypoint that gives you the exact position, time of day, and elevation where you spotted your prey, as well as the number of birds you flushed and took from that spot.
Other specific waypoints, such as “Truck” and “Lodge,” may be saved in Astro so that you can quickly and conveniently record the position of these sites for each hunt. Food plots, tree stands, and other hunting-related places are represented by specific waypoint icons in Astro.
GPS with all the bells and whistles
When you’re out hunting, Astro shines, but it also shines when it comes to transporting you back to your vehicle at the end of the day, or even back home. The Astro portable has a barometric altimeter, electronic compass, microSDTM card slot, astronomical information, area calculator, and a durable, water-resistant (IPX7) casing. You may search for over 6 million sites of interest and design a route on roads with accurate turn-by-turn instructions using the optional comprehensive city street maps.
This version of the Astro is only allowed for use in the United States because to differing foreign restrictions. The Canadian government now prohibits the sale and unauthorized use of the Garmin Astro GPS dog tracking system in any form.
According to a document issued by Industry Canada in June 2009, after a 5-year transition period, the MURS radio frequency utilized by the Astro will be allowed to be marketed and operated without a license (June 2014).
