The Astro 320 handheld takes dog tracking to a higher
level. It allows you to keep track of up to 10 dogs with multiple
handsets and T 5 dog devices (sold separately). High-sensitivity Garmin GPS/GLONASS transmitter, enhanced map drawing capabilities, BirdsEye Satellite Imagery
compatibility and a 3-axis electronic compass ensures you get to your
truck or camp at the end of the hunt. And it’s all easy to get to
through a vibrant, sunlight-readable 2.6-inch color display.
See Your Dogs’ Every Move
The Astro handheld and T 5 dog device boast high-sensitivity GPS
receiver/transmitters. The T 5 has a top-mounted GPS antenna and is
designed to keep its flexible, braided stainless steel radio antenna
upright for best reception so you can track your dog’s position even in
heavy tree cover or deep canyons. And it’s tough enough to run wherever
you dog runs (water-rated to 10 meters).
You can track up to 10 dogs at one time with Astro, at a range of up to 9 mi away, depending on terrain.
You can track up to 10 dogs at one time with Astro, at a range of up
to 9 mi away, depending on terrain. The system transmits information by
line-of-sight, so it reaches farthest in flat, open territory.
As often as every 5 seconds, the T 5 dog device transmits your dog’s
position to your Astro 320 handheld. Through the vibrant display, you
can see your dog's current location and a trail of where he’s been on
the map page. Switch over to the Dog Tracker page to view a compass
pointing to your dog’s location.
When tracking multiple dogs with T 5 dog devices, you can also see
each dog’s precise distance on the map page, and you can choose to auto
zoom the map so all dogs can be seen on the display at any time. Dogs
that are too far away to fit on the map’s current zoom scale can be
notated on the display’s margin in the direction of the dog’s location.
You can also choose the duration that each dog’s track log is viewed on
the display, or toggle it off completely.
Special Features for Your Peace of Mind
Rescue mode provides a reduced update rate when battery life drops
below 25 percent in order to preserve battery life and give you more
time to look for a lost dog. The improved battery life means when you
set your update rate to every 5 seconds, the battery lasts 26 hours. In
rescue mode, the battery lasts 54 hours. Plus, Collar Lock creates a
4-digit PIN number that helps prevent others from seeing your dog’s
whereabouts — a useful feature in field trials to ensure an Astro is
used only as a search tool when a dog in competition becomes lost.

Upgrade with Ease
Getting what you need for the hunt is now a little easier. You can
purchase the entire Astro bundle and as many T 5 dog devices with
collars as you need. And your Astro 320 is compatible with every T 5 dog
Astro 320 has a microSD™ card slot so you can load TOPO U.S. 24K maps for land elevation contours or City Navigator NT®
map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads. Astro 320 also supports
BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (subscription required) so you can download
satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps.
Mapping depicts important nearby geographical features and lets you know
if your dog has crossed a creek or is nearing a dangerous road.
Astro 320 is also compatible with Garmin Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.
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.
Plan Your Next Trip
Take charge of your next adventure with BaseCamp™,
software that lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes, and
tracks. This free trip-planning software even allows you to create Garmin Adventures
that you can share with friends, family or fellow explorers. BaseCamp
displays topographic map data in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen,
including contour lines and elevation profiles. It also can transfer an
unlimited amount of satellite images to your device when paired with a
BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription.
Turn Your Computer Into a BaseStation for Tracking Dogs
Load your laptop with BaseStation software to turn it into a field
control center for tracking multiple dogs (T 5 dog devices). View
real-time GPS information on the larger display of your computer, making
it ideal for canine search and rescue teams. And because it’s
GPS/GLONASS, you'll get safe, secure and more effective tracking, even
where Internet and cell phone service isn’t available.
