This rugged, water resistant all-weather collar features a high-sensitivity, top-mounted GPS and GLONASS-enabled receiver that works with the Garmin Astro® 320 and Astro 430 handheld dog devices¹. 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, or up to 20 dogs simultaneously with one Astro 430. 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.
¹The DC 50 is compatible with the Astro 320 and Astro 430 handhelds only (software upgrade required). It does not work with Astro 220 or Alpha® handhelds.
