    Garmin Astro Dog Tracking System Garmin's outdoor products are top of the line. They are used by nearly every niche market imaginable. That includes hunters. The DC20 (mounted to a hunting dog) was inspired by hunters who use Garmin handhelds and track their dogs with other devices. The options for tracking their dogs at that time were limited to sounders and directional antennas with limited range. The DC20 allowed the hunter to track their dog's activity and location using the handled unit.
