Overview: Garmin Astro 320 Handheld and T5 Mini Tracking Collar.
The Garmin Astro 320 with Mini T5 Tracking Collar is built for the small dog hunter and competition hunter who demands the performance that Garmin has been known to produce but in a more compact package.
Features of the Garmin Astro 320/T 5 Mini Bundle
Made for dogs under 50 pounds, the T 5 tracking collar includes a ¾ inch collar strap that will fit neck sizes between 9.5 and 14 inches. The unit weighs only 7 ounces and the receiver was designed with rounded corners to prevent extensive wear-and-tear and collisions between the receiver and your dog’s legs.
The T 5’s external and replaceable antenna allows for highly sensitive and reliable tracking with a connection to both GPS and GLONASS satellites. That’s a connection to roughly twice as many satellites in the sky! The factory antenna is 18.5 inches and is made of braided steel, which yields higher quality communication.
An invaluable feature, the T 5 is capable of going into “Rescue Mode.” After the battery reaches 25 percent of a full charge, the Astro 320/T 5 Mini bundle will initiate a battery conservation mode, giving you that much more battery life and time to recover your dog. Remember, for this feature to work, it must be enabled manually on your Astro 320 handheld.
Offering some of the top-of-the-line tracking technology, the Astro 320/T 5 Mini bundle also allows you to keep tabs on your dogs when out of hearing range with advanced bark detection software.
The Astro 320 handheld is easy-to-use and comes with pre-programmed high-resolution topo maps. With conveniently located on-screen buttons, you’ll be able to quickly scroll between dogs and zoom in and out of maps. The handheld also features enhanced map-drawing capabilities, vibration-based alerts, and a three-axis electronic compass.
Quick Collar Strap Changes:
The Garmin T 5 Mini uses the same collar strap design as the Garmin Alpha TT 10, TT 15 and Astro DC 50 collars. The only difference is that the Mini uses a ¾-inch strap rather than a 1-inch. When it’s time to replace the strap on the collar, it’s quick and easy to switch out straps, and no tools are needed. Just slide the strap through the integral channels on the Garmin Mini T 5 and get back to tracking.
Private PIN Lock:
While linked to an Astro 320, each T 5 Mini collar can be programmed with a 4-digit code that enables tracking. This code must be entered before someone else can track that Mini collar. It may not seem crucial during a normal hunt, but this option could prove priceless while competition hunting or when hunting with or around large hunting groups.
Adjustable Dog Status:
The Astro 320/T 5 bundle allows you to change the status of each dog wearing a T 5 Mini to accurately reflect what they’re doing. Your options are pointing, treeing, auto and none. This lets your Astro know that when your dog is sitting idle he or she could be on point or have game treed.
Protective Antenna Sleeve:
The T 5 Mini’s antenna sleeve protects your antenna from wear and tear but also keeps it erect while still receiving satellite signals. This thick rubber sleeve will have you saying goodbye to zip ties and electrical tape and hello to an easy-to-clean and durable antenna that stays upright without all the trouble.
The Garmin Astro’s USB port makes it easy to connect the handheld right to your laptop. Using Basecamp, you can track dogs on your laptop screen instead of the handheld screen. This can be especially convenient when hunting out of your truck, allowing the use of a larger screen.
Record the specific location of conveys. You can also record the birds in a covey and the number of birds taken from the covey using waypoints.
Whether you hunt for competition or sport, the purchase of an Astro 320/T 5 Mini bundle will offer you the Garmin standard of high performance.
