With faster 2.5-second location updates and the capacity to follow up to 20 dogs, Astro 430 is a handheld powerhouse of dog-tracking performance. Intuitive and easy to use, the Astro 430 handheld features a vibrant 2.6-inch color display, preloaded TOPO U.S. 100K mapping, an optional in-unit rechargeable battery and Hunt Metrics data to help analyze your dogs' tracking habits in the field, so you can know how to train more effectively.
Follow Your Dog's Every Move
Using the Garmin T 5 or T 5 mini collar devices (sold separately) to transmit each dog's location as often as every 2.5 seconds. On the Astro's bright, crisp display, you can see your dog's current location and a trail of where he's been. You also can switch over to the Dog Track page to view a compass pointing to your dog's location. It's easy to auto zoom the map page, 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. To reduce visual clutter on the map, you can toggle between show all, show some and show none selecting the duration that each dog's track is viewable on the display. You can also share a dog's track code so another person can view your dog's location on their unit's map, along with the dog tracking compass. Further, by sharing a dog's control code, you can allow another person to configure and control your dog's on-collar device.
See More Detail with Additional Mapping
Astro 430 features a microSD card slot that allows you to load even more mapping options, such as TOPO U.S. 24K and HuntView maps (sold separately). You also can opt for City Navigator NT map data that gives you turn-by-turn driving directions on roads. In addition, Astro 430 supports Birdseye Satellite Imagery (free 1-year subscription included) so you can download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps. The Astro's mapping depicts important nearby geographical features and enables you to see if your dog has crossed a creek or is nearing a dangerous roadway.
Astro 430 is also compatible with Garmin Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.
Track with Hunt Metrics Data
Sophisticated Hunt Metrics help monitor your dog's hunting patterns and behaviors to optimize your training opportunities. You can see your dog's times, distances traveled and overall scores. Plus, the Astro 430 will also capture the number of times during the hunt when an on point or treed event was indicated.
Count Your Coveys
After you've tracked down your quarry, mark the exact spot with Astro's Covey Counter, a special waypoint that shows 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. Astro also offers special waypoint icons to represent food plots, tree stands and other hunting-related points.
Make Every Outing Count
Plan for a more productive hunting trip with BaseCamp software, which lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes and tracks. 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 your Astro's free 1-year BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription.
Turn Your Computer Into a BaseStation for Tracking Dogs
Load your laptop with BaseStation software to tracking multiple dogs. View real-time GPS information on the larger display of your computer. And because it's GPS/GLONASS capable, you'll get tracking, even where Internet and cell phone service isn't available.
