Follow Your Dog's Every Move

Using our T 9 collar device (sold separately or as a bundle) to transmit each dog's location as often as every 2.5 seconds, Astro 900 is quick to pinpoint the track they're following -- even when they're on the run. On the Astro device'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. For help in keeping the big picture in sight when tracking multiple dogs, 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 900 features a microSD card slot that allows you to load even more mapping options. You also can opt for City Navigator® NT map data, which gives you turn-by-turn driving directions on roads. In addition, Astro 900 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 device'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 900 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 Dog Data

Sophisticated Hunt Metrics data helps 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, Astro 900 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 the Astro device'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", so you can easily find your way back to these locations at the end of the hunt. 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 that 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 device's free 1-year BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription.

Share Wirelessly

With an expanded ecosystem of wireless connectivity options, Astro 900 can support unit-to-unit data transfer with a variety of compatible Garmin devices. For example, Garmin DriveTrack can receive and display dog positions on its moving map -- with topographic or satellite image views -- showing navigation cues to your dog's current location. Likewise, a compatible fenix® GPS watch can receive dog status updates and alerts for viewing at a glance on your wrist. Also, while you're in the field, Astro 900 lets you link and share wirelessly with your buddies' compatible devices, such as the Oregon® handheld, Montana® handheld, GPSMAP® 64 chartplotter or other ANT+® connectivity-enabled devices, to help coordinate hunt logistics on the go.


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 (equipped with T 9). 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 and GLONASS capable, you'll get tracking, even where internet and cell phone service isn't available.

Tough, Water-resistant, Long-lasting

Like all Garmin outdoor products, Astro 900 is designed to be effective, easy to use, reliable and rugged enough to withstand all the blows, bumps and sloppy conditions of training and hunting. The handheld unit is water-resistant to IPX7, and it can be powered with standard AA batteries -- or it's optionally available with a long-lasting NiMH battery pack that's rechargeable in the unit. What's more, if you ever drop or misplace your Astro 900 in the field, the high-visibility orange case makes it easier to track down.
