Garmin Astro 220 Bundle w/ DC40 Collar
See Your Dogs’ Every Move
The Astro system includes a bright color-screen handheld GPS device and the rugged, orange polyurethane DC 40 collar. The DC 40 combines a high-sensitivity GPS receiver and a VHF antenna, all in one small transmitter. A bright, orange polyurethane collar makes for great visibility, extreme durability and easy maintenance so you can focus on the hunt. The redesigned charging contacts are flush with the unit, so they don't get clogged with dirt and mud. A new flashing LED-charging indicator lets you know when the battery is charged and ready to go. You can mount an e-collar receiver next to the DC40, eliminating the need for two collars on the dog. A Collar Lock option uses a four-digit PIN number that helps prevent others with Astro receivers from tracking your dog's whereabouts. This is also a useful feature in field trials to ensure that an Astro is used only as a recovery tool when a dog in competition becomes lost. Get into the hunt with the DC 40!
To get started, just take Astro outdoors and turn on the handheld and transmitter to acquire GPS satellite signals. Then attach the DC 40 to your dog. Now you’re ready to turn him loose — no other setup required.Track Dogs in Dense Cover
As often as every five seconds, your dog’s DC 40 transmits his position to your handheld, and you can see his current location and a trail of where he’s been on the Map page of your handheld. 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. Astro can also sound an alarm to let you know instantly when your dog goes on point.
Astro boasts a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that can track your dog’s position even in the densest cover. You can track up to ten dogs at one time with Astro, at a distance of up to seven 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’ve 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. Astro lets you save other special waypoints, such as "Truck" and "Lodge," so you can save the location of these places quickly and easily for each hunt. Astro also offers special waypoint icons to represent food plots, tree stands and other hunting-related points.
