  • Garmin ASTRO 430 + T5 Combo

    Garmin has updated the tracking only Garmin Astro with their latest and greatest software.

    When Garmin first introduced dog tracking via GPS they used a 5 second update rate (how often the collar reports its location) and a maximum 10 dogs tracking per handheld.

    While this was fine for most of us, many folks were looking for more dogs per unit and everybody wanted faster updates (even though some of us didn't know it at the time).

    When Garmin introduced their combination ecollar GPS tracking system, the Alpha, they moved to a 20 dog option with a 2.5 second update rate.

    The only issue with making this change was that the folks running Astro systems could not track the collars of the folks running Alpha systems.

    While this wasn't the end of the world, it was a bit of a hassle for those of us that like to hunt with others and be able to keep up with their dogs along with our own. Folks had to buy new systems with a combo tracking / ecollar, even if they did not want or need the remote trainer.

    All of this is now fixed with the Garmin Astro 430.

    The new 430 works off the same 2.5 second update rate and 20 dog option that Garmin uses with the Alpha. This means you can now run a Garmin Astro and track collars running on an Alpha unit at the same time.

    The Garmin Astro 430 will track DC50 and T5 (regular and mini) collars. It will also track TT 10 and TT 15 (regular and mini) collars (tracking only -- no stimulation).

    There are a couple of downsides, but that is to be expected with any major changes to technology.

  • The Astro 430 is NOT compatible with Astro 220 or Astro 320 handhelds
  • The Astro 430 will NOT be able to track DC20, DC30 or DC40 collars

    A few other new and cool features include:

  • Preloaded 100K TOPO map
  • 1 year free subscription to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery
  • DriveTrack 71 -- track collars in your vehicle on a bigger screen
  • Fenix Watch 5 and 3 series -- get notifications and direction info via Bluetooth on your watch
  • Rechargeable handheld battery option -- add a rechargeable AA battery pack to your Astro handheld and charge it via your USB port

    The Garmin T5 tracking collar has several features to help you keep up with your dog:

  • LED Beacon Lights for added visibility in low-light conditions

    Like the Garmin Alpha, the T5 has beacon lights that help you see your dog while he is running at night. These lights also help other folks and oncoming traffic see your dog.

    Please note that these lights must be turned on while the T5 collar is close to the handheld.

    The Astro 430 can NOT turn the Astro T5 collar lights on at any distance away from the hand held.

  • Track Astro T5, T5 MINI and DC50 collars PLUS Alpha TT15, TT15 MINI and TT10 Collars

    The Astro T5 and Alpha TT 15 collars have the ability to be tracked by either the Astro 430 handheld or the Alpha 100 handheld.

    This lets Alpha users who need a system they can use in competitions legally run T5 tracking collars. Also, folks that buy the Astro 430 with T5 collars can continue to use the T5 collars in the future if they ever switch over to the Alpha handheld.

  • Orange Top Mounted GPS / GLONASS Receiver

    To make it easy to tell which collar you are running (T5 vs. TT15), the T5 has an orange top mounted GPS receiver. The TT15, TT10 and the DC 50 all have black GPS receivers.


    The Garmin Astro system consists of two components: a Handheld GPS unit (Garmin Astro 430) which looks like a walkie-talkie and a Dog GPS unit (Astro-T-5).
  • These two GPS units communicate via radio signals.

  • The Dog GPS computes its location from the GPS satellites, detects whether your dog is moving or on point, and sends that info to your Handheld GPS every 5 seconds.

  • The Handheld GPS then plots the exact location of your dog on a map screen, shows distance, and whether your dog is moving or on point.

  • On your Handheld GPS, the MAP SCREEN shows your location, your dog's location, and the path that your dog has hunted.

    Alternately, view your dog(s) on the COMPASS SCREEN which shows your location, your dog's distance and direction.

    The COMPASS SCREEN is perfect for running multiple dogs. Add up to 20 dogs to one Handheld GPS system.

    All you need are extra T5 DOG GPS collars.

      Garmin Astro 430 with T5 COMBO (1-dog GPS System)

      We recommend updating the software on your Astro to the latest version before use.

      The Astro 430 with the T5 GPS collar is Garmin's latest generation GPS / GLONASS tracking system for sporting dogs. You can track up to 20 dogs from a single handheld with a range of up to 9 miles. The 2.5 second update rate lets you quickly pinpoint your dog's location. The T5 collar housing is specially designed to keep the flexible braided steel VHF antenna upright for maximum reception.

      The 430 handheld gives you enhanced map drawing capabilities with preloaded TOPO U.S. 100K maps, a 1-year Birdseye Satellite Imagery subscription and a 3-axis electronic compass on a 2.6" color screen that is easy to read in all light conditions.

      Hunt Metrics dog performance data helps you analyze your dog's tracking patterns and behaviors.

      The Garmin Astro is perfect when your dog is not by your side. Hiking, camping, horseback riding or bike riding, the Garmin Astro will allow your dogs more freedom but allow you to keep a close eye on them and help you locate them if they get lost. Since the Garmin Astro 430 serves as a full-featured handheld GPS unit, it will keep you from getting lost, too.

      Not available to Canadian addresses. This product is approved for use in the US only. Collar to handheld radio communication may be disabled in Europe and other prohibited areas.

    Features of the Garmin ASTRO 430 + T5 Combo

    • High Visibility Design -- Orange handheld casing gives added visibility making the Astro 430 harder to lose in the field.

    • LED Beacon Lights -- Beacon lights are built into the T5 Astro collar for low light conditions or night use. Visible up to 100 yards.

    • Cross Compatibility -- The T5 tracking collar is compatible both with the Astro 430 AND the Alpha 100. Note that the T5 will only have tracking capability when used with the Alpha. You can also track Alpha TT15, TT15 MINI and TT10 GPS collars with your Astro 430 handheld, although you won't be able to activate the remote training functions.

    • GPS and GLONASS Tracking -- The Astro 430 and the T5 collar utilize both GPS and GLONASS satellites for increased sensitivity. The T5's top-mounted antenna gives you improved signal reception, and the antenna's orange color makes it easy to distinguish during competitions that don't allow stimulation, tone or vibration.

    • AKC Competition Approved -- The AKC Performance Events Department has approved the Garmin T5 collar for use in pointing breed field trials and hunting tests.

    • Regular AND Long-Range Antennas Included -- You get both regular and long range antennas both for your Astro 430 handheld AND your T5 GPS collar. That's 4 antennas altogether! Configure your system to meet your specific needs.

    • Hunt Metrics -- Hunt Metrics dog performance data shows distance traveled, time afield and more so you can train your dog more effectively.

    • Rescue Mode -- When the battery on a tracking collar dies, finding a missing a dog gets a lot more difficult. When the collar battery drops to 25% life, RESCUE MODE changes the update rate to a 2-minute ping to extend battery life which gives you the maximum amount of hours to find a lost dog. Rescue mode is not the default setting. You have to turn it on under SETTINGS. I can't think of a good reason NOT to run your collar in rescue mode because there's no downside to using it.

    • Multi-Dog Tracking -- Track up to 20 dogs with additional Garmin T5 collars. Tracking range is up to 9 miles, delivering location data as often as every 2.5 seconds.

    • Preloaded Mapping -- The Astro 430 comes preloaded with TOPO U.S. 100K mapping plus a 1-year subscription to BirdsEye Satellite Imagery.

    • MicroSD Slot -- You can use the MicroSD slot to add TOPO U.S. 24K, City Navigator, and more (each available separately), or add more memory by installing a blank MicroSD Card.

    • Live Laptop Tracking using BaseStation -- Using BaseStation, you can take your handheld while you're tracking dogs and plug it into your computer, letting you view your dogs on your laptop's screen. HOW TO: First download Garmin's Base Station Software. Then plug your handheld into your computer's USB port to see the Tracking screen on your computer. We've got guys that are working out of vehicles and they are tired of looking at a small screen all the time. They want to set up a computer in their vehicle and be able to view the tracking. You still use a handheld to track, but view your dogs on your laptop screen instead of a small handheld. Garmin says it'll track on the computer "real-time," but it's the same update rate that you have on your system -- 2.5, 5, 10, 30, or 120 seconds between updates.

    • Downloads -- Using the Waypoints and Tracks and the Dog Tracks feature from the Astro Handheld you can download your days hunt into your PC using either MapSource or to see your hunt on a topo map or Google Earth. This allows you to see the ground that you and your dog actually cover in a day's hunt on a map.

    • Covey Counter -- The Garmin Astro also allows you to mark the exact location of your coveys using a special waypoint feature. This will allow you to place your coveys on a map and mark the time of day, elevation, number of birds in the covey and number of birds taken from a covey.

    • Icons -- Astro also comes with waypoint icons designed for hunting, letting you mark and identify additional waypoints such as your truck, hunting lodge, food plots, cover, ATVs and other outdoor-related features.

    • Additional Uses -- While the Garmin Astro is designed for the hunting dog, many of our customers that don't hunt but enjoy spending time outdoors with their dogs and allowing them to run off leash will find the Astro incredibly useful.

    Garmin ASTRO 430 + T5 Combo Batteries

      The Astro Handheld unit uses AA batteries (not included). Average run time is 20+ hours.

      Optional Astro NiMH Battery Pack can be charged inside the 430 handheld via USB.

      The T5 collar features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that gives a 24-48 hour run time depending on selected update rate.

      Collar Battery Run Time Chart

      • ~24 hours with 2.5 second update rate
      • ~34 hours with 5 second update rate
      • ~38.5 hours with 10 second update rate
      • ~42.5 hours with 30 second update rate
      • ~48 hours with 120 second update rate

      It's really tricky to give exact run times on the Garmin Astro T5 because there are so many variables. Collar battery run time is most affected by update rate and whether or not you use the Beacon Lights.

    Garmin ASTRO 430 + T5 Combo Range

      The Garmin Astro transmitter and receiver have a "line of sight" range of up to 9 miles using the included long-range antenna.

      The Astro communicates using a VHF radio signal between the Dog GPS collar and the Handheld GPS unit, so to get the full range out of a system there should be nothing between the transmitter and the receiver.

      Realistically, this isn't going to happen in most of the places that we spend time with our dogs, so the actual usable range will be MUCH less than 9 miles depending on hunting conditions, including weather, terrain, and the presence of cover.

    A homer in for Garmin
    January 11, 2021
    I bought the Astro 430/t5 for my German Shorthair and it has worked great for upland hunting. We went to South Dakota with several friends and it was great to be able to see my dog working in front of all of us. In many of the convenience stores, bars, and hotels were posters of lost dogs. With up to a 9 mile range, I was never concerned about where my dog was.
    • Alerts when dog was on point. Todo map was great for looking over new hunting area. Compass gave instant direction and distance to dog.
    • The only reason for 4 stars is because the receiver is not rechargeable but uses AA batteries unlike my other Garmin products that are rechargeable. Better carry extra batteries.

    Works great in Southern Mexico
    September 11, 2020
    Was not sure if the product would work in Southern Mexico due to the region and hot and humid weather, however It performed great no issues at all. Easy to set up and change settings language to spanish. Used on several Deer hunts in Southern Mexico where it is very humid and hot and these units performed very well. Thankyou everyone at Gun Dog Supply, customer service is great and staff is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable on the products they provide to their customers, I highly recommend them to any one who uses hunting dogs here in USA or in Mexico.
    • easy to program, friendly and professional staff
    • no complaints, great product, great company, family owned business who provides excellent personalized service to their customers

    Love this product
    September 3, 2020
    This is great product if you have a big running dog or hunt/ train with thick cover around. Fast updates on dog location and lots of great features most I’ll never probably use but they are available.
    Extremely long battery life on the collar have used it for 1 month+ and haven’t had to recharge it yet. Use good AA batteries in the controller though or you will end up changing them every couple of weeks.
    • Fast updates
    • Long range
    • Ease of use
    • Sturdy clip
    • Collar has great battery life
    • Nice mapping features
    • Uses cheap AA up fast
    • Even though you can choose the type of dog ( pointer in my case ) it will still say your dog has treed an animal sometimes.
    • Compass can be a little finicky and you will need to recalibrate it from time to time.

    Easy to use and it is awesome to know where my dog is at all times
    October 12, 2016
    I really love the peace of mind the Garmin Astro 430 gives me while hunting. I mainly hunt Grouse and Woodcock so we are usually in heavy cover. I have always hunted with a bell and would have the difficult task of finding my dog when she went on point. I have had her 5 yards away and could't find her. With the Astro I always know exactly where she is.

    The on point notification is awesome. The dog direction and distance screen leads me right to my dog. I know when I am getting close so I can start looking for my dog and also try to look for possible openings for shooting The only draw back I see so far is that the battery system for the hand held could be better.

    Over all it is easy to use and it is awesome to know where my dog is at all times no matter if she is on the move or on point. Thick cover doesn't seem to be a problem. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to hit the woods with a dog.

    Garmin Astro 430
    April 5, 2021
    Well i had problems locating my 10 month old english pointer so I purchased the Garmin Astro 430. When it came in the mail i got it out and went to my office to figure it out. I wanted to set it up on my computer first and became discouraged when i seen how technical it was. i packed to up to return that day. Then i decided to try it on the dog before i returned it. When i let the dog out of his box. he took off and i quickly realized how effective the garmin tracker really is. Within 20 minutes the handheld beeped and read that FESTUS was on point 40 yards away. Festus was on point and flused a covey of quail right over my head. IT WORKS. It would have been a mistake to return or exchange it because off it accuracy, quality and capability. Definitely worth $650 in my opinion. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! STEVE SNELL DEFINITLY KNOWS THE BEST DOG TRACKERS OUT THERE!!! THANKS STEVE!!

    OK But Poor Instructions
    December 25, 2020
    I can keep up with my dog just fine with it, but there are so many different screens and so many different ways to get to each screen that it is over-complicated. It doesn't come with an owner's manual, just a quick start guide that leaves much to be desired. The owner's manual doesn't read much easier. You can download the owner's manual but looks like for the price Garmin charges they could at least include the complete instructions. Overall, the product works fine but the support materials are poorly conceived and written, and I'm a technical person.
    Merchant Response:KG, If you have any questions about operating the Garmin Astro 430 we have several product specialists who can help. Just give us a call at 1-800-624-6378 or email us at Thanks, Ben
    • Works well.
    • Lack of coherent instruction manual.

    Easy to use and worked as advertised.
    • Hand held screen is user friendly, instructions clear and helpful.
    • User manual should be included with the unit.

    Incredible Product and the best site to purchase high dollar devices
    October 9, 2020
    Gun Dog Supply is the only place to purchase these high dollar, no discount/coupon items.
    When Garmin quoted a 5-8 week turnaround Gun Dog Supply literally shipped the same day. I find that astounding that the actual manufacturer does not keep their items in stock. Gun Dog Supply is the only place I will shop for my dog related items.
    • Fast shipping, great video descriptors that help to select the exact model and item I needed
    • Bark detect does not work. I've asked my 5 teammates who have this same device if they ever got it to work and the answer was no. Garmin adds a disclaimer that "it does not work in all areas" so I guess the end result is, it doesn't work anywhere.

    Great reception between collar & handheld, relatively easy to set up & operate. I have a Brittany & wish I would have gotten the mini collar. Full size collar is OK, but the mini would have been better.

    I like the system, but would have liked it a lot better if you could track other hunters in the club that have ASTRO 320 systems with DC 40,50 collars. Knowing what I know now would have just ordered new T-5 collars instead of ASTRO 430 system. Still like what I have in the 430 because it seems to track better and farther than ASTRO 320. Thanks, A.S. King

    I'm giving 5 stars! It's a great product from Garmin, so far it has worked flawlessly I will strongly recommend this to any coon hunter or any hunting that requires a dog. For that matter, you won't be disappointed.

    I love the Garmin 430. I made the mistake of not getting the trainer combo unit; that would work much better for me. I recommend spending the extra $150 and get the trainer combo. Great Product and great help from GunDogSupply!

    Helped me overcome a hearing issue by giving me the ability to located my dogs when they're on the ground and I can't hear or locate their beeper collars. Very pleased with the GPS collars.

    The 430 works great if that is the only device you are using. I tried running both the 430 and 320 together and ran into some issues with it. If we just talk about the 430 then performance is great, but I'm sure there are a lot of hunters out there like myself that need to know about the issues when trying to run both handheld units together.
