The Garmin Astro 430 is the Australian Legal Garmin GPS and GLONASS tracking system to replace the Astro 320 unit which has never been officially released in the Australian Market. It can track up to 20 dogs at a range of up to 7km. With a 2.5 second update rate that is twice as fast as its predecessor. So, it is quicker to pinpoint the location when dogs are on the run. Intuitive and easy to use, the Astro 430 features a vibrant 2.6 inch display, preloaded TOPO lite Australia map and an optional in-unit rechargeable battery. Also includes Hunt Metrics dog performance data to help analyse your dog's tracking patterns and behaviours, so you can train more effectively.
The Astro 430 is compatible with the Garmin Drivetrack 71 Car navigation device and Fenix 6 & Instinct multisport watch. The Drivetrack 71 works as a "7 inch Big Screen" for the Astro 430/T5 dog tracking system while in the car. It receives location data information from the Astro 430 via bluetooth and display dog's speed, location, direction heading on reloaded AU/NZ Topo lite map. The Fenix 3 watch is a portable solution for the Astro 430/T5. When the Fenix watch connects to the Astro 430, it will show the dogs' name, direction of heading and distance from you. So you can keep your big Astro handheld in the pocket or holster and track the dog from wrist.
Astro 430 vs previous Astro 320, 220
The new Astro 430 has faster 2.5 seconds update rate. It can also track up to 20 dogs where Astro 320 and 220 can only track up to 10 dogs. Astro 430 works with Garmin T5 collar which is a better collar than the DC series tracking collar. Astro 430 has built in wireless share feature which is compatible with DriveTrack 71 Car GPS and Fenix watch. It means you can track your dog with a 7 inch big screen in the car as well as a convenient small watch while out in the field.
Astro 430 vs Alpha 100
The Astro 430 looks like a tracking only version of the Alpha 100. It has most features of the Alpha 100. The main difference is the Alpha 100 has touch screen and Astro 430 offers back to basic keys operation for different users. The Astro 430 will have a longer range than Alpha 100 because it doesn't have the training module that requires it to communicate with the collar. With only one way transmission, the Astro 430 is equipped with a longer antenna than the standard Alpha 100 handheld.
Please note: the new Australia version Garmin Astro 430 will not work with any previous Garmin Astro handhelds and DC collars.
