This season, hunters are preparing for what could be their finest year yet with the Astro 320 GPS Dog Tracking System and DC 40 Bundle sold at Traveling Pet Supplies http://www.travelingpetsupplies.com. The Garmin Astro 320 Dog Tracking System tracks a dog’s every step, plotting his exact location, distance and movements on a handheld GPS. This information is sent from via satellite every five seconds.

The Garmin Astro 320 GPS Dog Tracking System Bundle also includes an orange durable polyurethane DC 40 collar that accommodates nearly all e-collar receivers. This eliminates the need to fit your dog with two separate collars.

“Traveling Pet Supplies is excited to offer the Astro 320 Dog Tracking System Bundle, as it is the perfect instrument for hunters and helps to keep dogs safe and from getting lost,” said Sarah Porter, vice president of marketing, Traveling Pet Supplies.

There are many features, which differentiate the Astro 320 GPS Dog Tracking System and DC 40 Bundle from the other GPS systems. The interface streamlines information displayed on the monitor and the user will have access to their dog’s location noted in the display’s margin. Hunters whose dogs are outside the current zoom level may still be tracked. To avoid cluttering the map, the user also may choose the amount of each dog's track log displayed, or simply toggle it off completely.

The DC 40 collar is a fully self-contained transmitter that combines the receiver, GPS antenna, battery and electronics into one unit, unlike Garmin’s previous collar designs. It has an antenna that is rugged and durable. The DC 40 collar transmits the dog’s position to the handheld as often as every five seconds. This enables hunters to see his current location and a trail of where he has been on the handheld device. Dogs, whose distance has exceeded the map’s current zoom scale may be noted on the display’s margin in the direction of his route. Other technological features of the Astro 320 Dog Tracking System include the option for it to be password protected and an optional collar lock that requires a four-digit code entered into the handheld as a means of preventing other hunters from tracking your dog.

"This system is what every hunter wishes for," said Porter. "It's got everything a hunter could need for tracking their dog. Plus, hikers and travelers alike are using it to ensure their dogs' safety in rugged terrain or in congested cities."

The new Astro 320 GPS Dog Tracking System allows hunters to purchase and load the TOPO U.S. 24K maps for land elevation contours or City Navigator NT map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads. The Astro 320 GPS Dog Tracking System sold at Traveling Pet Supplies also supports BirdsEye Satellite Imagery through a paid subscription. This allows hunters to download satellite images to their devices and integrate them with maps. Mapping depicts the important nearby geographical features to inform hunters of pertinent information such as if their dog has crossed a creek or is nearing a dangerous road.

Astro 320 is compatible with Garmin Custom Maps, which is free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for the device.

The Astro 320 may be purchased as a bundle or as a stand-alone item. DC 40 collars also may be purchased individually as well at Traveling Pet Supplies. Visit http://www.travelingpetsupplies.com to purchase or for further information.
