Track with Hunt Metrics Dog Data
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.
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.
