Garmin’s latest GPS dog collar, the DC 50, turns heads with GLONASS and range

by GPS4US 2013-07-03 19:56
Garmin’s line of GPS dog collars just keeps getting better.

The company announced this week their latest tool to keep your dog safe during hunts. The DC 50, an update to the DC 40 that gives users a more durable collar that is even better at picking up GPS signals.

The DC 50, which follows the successful DC 40 and DC 30 models, works with Garmin’s Astro 320 tracking system. Perhaps its most eye-catching feature is its support of GLONASS, which is about 20 percent faster than GPS. When used together, GLONASS and GPS locks onto 24 more satellites than using GPS alone. So the GLONASS vs. GPS argument doesn’t need to happen anymore. With the DC 50, you can just use both for maximum results.

“From more reliable satellite reception to a more rugged design, the new DC 50 gives sporting dog owners what they’ve been asking for,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales, in a statement. “The new DC 50 has the features that will bring the benefits of GPS tracking to first-time users, and will convince existing Astro customers to upgrade.”

The DC 50 features a design that’s made for bumps and picking up more signals. The main housing sits below the dog’s neck while a low-profile, braided steel GPS antenna lies at the top of the collar, allowing owners to track their dogs up to nine miles away as frequently as every five seconds.

The DC 50’s battery gets up to 26 hours of life when fully charged. Users also get a barking detector, telling you when your dog is barking frequently, even if you’re out of an earshot. A single unit can track up to 10 dogs at once, and the collar is water proof to 10 meters.

Essentially, The DC 50 is Garmin’s latest, best take on the GPS dog collar.
