    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 ofter as every 2.5 seconds, Astro 430 is quick to pinpoint the track they're following - even when they're on the run. On the Astro's bright, crisp display, you can see you 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.

Plus, the Astro 430 will also capture the number of times during the hunt when an "on point" or "treed" event was indicated.

    After you've tracked down your quarry, mark the exact spot with Astro's Convey Counter, a special waypoint that shows the exact location, time of day and elevation where you found your prey as wella s 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.
