The Garmin Astro 430 is the new New Zealand / Australian Legal Garmin GPS and GLONASS tracking system to replace the Astro 320
unit which has never been officially released in the NZ / 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 New Zealand AND 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.
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 70 LMT Car GPS and Fenix 3 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.

Follow Your Dog’s Every Move
Using the Garmin T 5 collar devices (additional T5 Collars Sol Separately) to transmit each dog’s location as often as every 2.5 seconds, the Astro 430 is quick to pinpoint the track they’re following — even when they’re on the run.
With the Astro’s bright, crisp display, you can see your dog’s current location and a trail of where he’s been.
You also can switch over to the Dog Track page to view a compass pointing to your dog’s location.
For help in keeping the big picture in sight when tracking multiple dogs, it’s easy to auto zoom the map page, so all dogs can be seen on the display at any time.
Dogs that are too far away to fit on the map’s current zoom scale can be notated on the display’s margin in the direction of the dog’s location.
To reduce visual clutter on the map, you can toggle between “show all,” “show some” and “show none” — selecting the duration that each dog’s track is viewable on the display.
You can also share a dog’s track code so another person can view your dog’s location on their unit’s map, along with the dog tracking compass.
Further, by sharing a dog’s control code, you can allow another person to configure and control your dog’s on-collar device.
Track with Hunt Metrics Data
Sophisticated Hunt Metrics help monitor your dog’s hunting patterns and behaviors to optimize your training opportunities.
You can see your dog’s times, distances traveled and overall scores.
Plus, the Astro 430 will also capture the number of times during the hunt when an “on point” or “treed” event was indicated.
Count Your Coveys
After you’ve tracked down your quarry, mark the exact spot with Astro’s Covey Counter™, a special waypoint that shows the exact location, time of day and elevation where you found your prey as well as the number of birds you flushed and took from that location.
Astro lets you save other special waypoints, such as “Truck” and “Lodge,” so you can easily find your way back to these locations at the end of the hunt.
Astro also offers special waypoint icons to represent food plots, tree stands and other hunting-related points.
Make Every Outing Count
Plan for a more productive hunting trip with BaseCamp™ software, which lets you view and organize maps, waypoints, routes and tracks.
This free trip-planning software even allows you to create Garmin Adventures that you can share with friends, family or fellow dog trackers.
BaseCamp displays topographic map data in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen, including contour lines and elevation profiles.
It also can transfer an unlimited amount of satellite images to your device when paired with your Astro’s free 1-year BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription.
With an expanded ecosystem of wireless connectivity options, Astro 430 can support unit-to-unit data transfer with a variety of compatible Garmin devices.
For example, the outdoor Garmin DriveTrack™ 70 GPS navigator can receive and display dog positions on its moving map — with TOPO or satellite image views — showing navigation cues to your dog’s current location.
Likewise, fēnix® 3 GPS watches can receive dog status updates and alerts for viewing at a glance on your wrist.
Also, while you’re in the field, Astro 430 lets you link and share wirelessly with your buddies’ compatible devices, such as the Oregon® handheld, Montana® handheld, GPSMAP® 64 chartplotter or other ANT+® enabled devices, to help coordinate hunt logistics on the go.
Turn Your Computer Into a BaseStation for Tracking Dogs
Load your laptop with BaseStation software to turn it into a field control center for tracking multiple dogs (equipped with T 5 dog devices²).
View real-time GPS information on the larger display of your computer, making it ideal for canine search and rescue teams.
And because it’s GPS/GLONASS capable, you’ll get tracking, even where Internet and cell phone service isn’t available.
Tough, Water-resistant, Long-lasting
Like all Garmin outdoor products, Astro 430 is designed to be effective, easy to use, reliable and rugged enough to withstand all the blows, bumps and sloppy conditions of training and hunting.
The handheld unit is water-resistant to IPX7, and it can be powered with standard AA batteries — or it’s optionally available with a long-lasting NiMH battery pack that’s rechargeable in the unit.
What’s more, if you ever drop or misplace your Astro 430 in the field, the high-visibility orange case makes it easy to track down.
See More Detail with Additional Mapping
Astro 430 features a microSD™ card slot that allows you to load even more mapping options, such as TOPO Lite AU/NZ and HuntView maps (sold separately).
You also can opt for City Navigator AU/NZ map data that gives you turn-by-turn driving directions on roads.
In addition, Astro 430 supports BirdsEye Satellite Imagery (free 1-year subscription included) so you can download satellite images to your device and integrate them with your maps.
The Astro’s mapping depicts important nearby geographical features and enables you to see if your dog has crossed a creek or is nearing a dangerous roadway.
Astro 430 is also compatible with Garmin Custom Maps, free software that transforms paper and electronic maps into downloadable maps for your device.
