Garmin Astro DC 50 GPS Dog Tracking Collar Information:
This rugged, waterproof¹ all-weather collar features a high-sensitivity, top-mounted GPS and GLONASS-enabled receiver that works with the Astro 320 handheld dog device². The DC 50 can track additional satellites using a combined GPS and GLONASS system, which will locate your dog more quickly and maintain location even in heavy tree cover or deep canyons.
A braided steel VHF antenna adds reliability and achieves a range of up to 9 miles, depending on the terrain. And the battery lasts 26 to 54 hours, depending on the update rate. Its innovative bark detection technology alerts you if your dog is barking even beyond audible range.
With additional DC 50 transmitters (sold separately), you can track up to 10 dogs simultaneously with one Astro 320. The DC 50 has a replaceable collar strap (sold separately) in a variety of colors. Dog position can be set to update every 5, 10, 30 or 120 seconds. It also features a PIN-based Collar Lock feature to prevent unauthorized persons from tracking your dog.
