Better: Faster 2.5 Second Update rate

ALPHA has a 2.5 Second Update Rate. Astro starts at 5 seconds.

UPDATE RATE is the rate at which the GPS collar radios the Handheld and updates the position, speed, direction, and activity of the dog. A faster update gives you more information, but drains the collar battery faster.

The upside to a 2.5 second update rate is that you'll know if your dog is on point or has treed twice as fast as before.

A 2.5 second update rate isn't real-time, but it's twice as fast as the current Garmin Astro. This is another good thing that folks have been wanting added to the Garmin GPS systems. Whether or not we can get much faster than that in the future is a good question. 2.5 Seconds is still pretty awesome.
