| New and improved top-mounted GPS tracking collar for use with Astro 320
Replacing the DC-40, the new DC-50 features a top-mounted, high-sensitivity GPS antenna to improve position performance.
This rugged, all-weather collar works with the Astro® 320 to safeguard against your dog getting lost (not compatible with Astro® 220 or Alpha).
The all-new DC-50 sports a durable one-inch polyurethane collar strap that fits most e-collar receivers — eliminating the need to put two separate collars on a dog.
When purchased separately, the DC-50 ships with a blue strap. When sold as a bundle with the Astro 320, an orange strap is included.
Additional replacement collar straps are also available in multiple colors (sold separately).
The innovative Collar Lock feature uses a four-digit PIN number that helps prevent others from seeing your dog’s whereabouts.
Attach Collar and Go
When teamed up with the Astro™ 320, this system will have you hunting in no time. The DC-50, in combination with the Astro 320 handheld pinpoints your dog’s position every 5 seconds (you can extend the battery life of the DC-50 by changing the position transmit rate from 5 to 10, 30, or 120 seconds).
The DC-50's Lithium-ion battery is rechargeable and replaceable and offers an improved 26 to 54 hours of battery life.
You will know if your dog is pointing, sitting, moving or treeing. Where your dog is. Where it’s been. How fast he's moving and how far he’s gone.
The receiver’s ability to track additional satellites using the GLONASS system helps locate the dog’s position more quickly and maintains GPS location even in heavy tree cover or deep canyons.
A braided steel VHF antenna, with additional length, reliably sends the dog’s position data straight to your Astro handheld.
As an added bonus, the DC-50 will now incorporate innovative bark identification technology so that dog owners will know if the dog is barking even if they are out of audible range.
This waterproof (up to 10m), rugged and reliable tracking collar has a range of up to 9 miles, delivering the dogs position as often as every 5 seconds.
Plus, up to 10 dogs can be tracked at one time (with use of Astro 320 and the purchase of additional DC-50 units).
