    Default *** APPROVED FOR USE IN CANADA *** Garmin's NEW Astro 900 Tracking System

    Garmin's new Astro 900 Tracking System uses 900 MHz FHSS allowing for legal operation in Canada and the US.

    The Astro 900, the GPS and GLONASS tracking system for sporting dogs, lets you know where your dogs are and what they're doing. Astro can track up to 20 dogs and pairs with T9 dog devices for a range of up to 5 miles (8 km). The 2.5 second update rate provides faster location tracking when dogs are on the run. Intuitive and easy to use the Astro 900 features a vibrant 2.6" display, preloaded TOPO U.S. and southern Canadian mapping.

    I understand these will be available here in Ontario at DCR.

    Congratulations to Garmin for building the Astro 900. They built a unit with a different frequency , outside of the MURS frequencies. Apparently they are legal in Canada. Would appear to have less range than the TT15 collars.
    Guess who just bought an Alpha, haven't had it one week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This unit is not compatible with the Astro or Alphas.

    I wonder how the signal range will be compared to the current astro/alpha

    If anyone buys one and wants to sell an Astro 320 or 220 Let me know

    The 900 series apparently only 2/3 range of Astros & Alphas. I'm not selling my Astro.
    I 'm suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.
