For what do you use a Garmin Astro 220 GPS?

A Garmin Astro 220 GPS (global positioning system) is not a navigation system like you may think of when thinking of the brand Garmin. Instead, it is for tracking. The waterproof system keeps track of your dog while you are out hunting since he or she can be hard to spot in fields or trees. It works with your dog's collar to transmit his or her exact location and can even alert you once they find their hunt. However, it can still keep track of your surroundings and can even help direct you back to your truck at the end of the day.

What types of Garmin Astro 220 GPS's are there?

There are a variety of ways to utilize a Garmin Astro 220 GPS, depending on what works best for you and your pooch. The device uses a handheld device, for the hunter, that has a color screen display to keep an eye out for your dog. Your system should include a collar for your dog for tracking. If it does not, you can purchase one with a simple eBay search. The different types of Garmin Astro 220 GPS's include:

  • Antenna
  • Collar tracking system
  • Dog stands/blinds
  • Tracking system
Does a Garmin Astro 220 GPS help you find dogs?

A Garmin Astro 220 GPS uses a four-digit PIN number so that you (and only you) can see where your dog is. However, you can link it to up to 10 dogs if you have more than one with you on the hunt. Plus, it picks up signals every 5 seconds, even in a dense location and up to 7 miles away, so that you can rest assured you can always find your dog easily.

What's the difference between a Garmin Astro and Forerunner?

The Garmin Astro and Forerunner are both global positioning systems used to help you navigate. However, a Forerunner is a sports watch used for you to track your movements, and especially for runners and triathletes to keep track of their path as well as how far they've traveled. An Astro, on the other hand, is for keeping track of your dog's positioning on its collar.
