With the exploding popularity of The Garmin Astro GPS Dog Tracking System, many users are looking for accessories that will make their Astro even more powerful in the woods. One of the best accessories for these units is the Gamin MapSource Topographical Maps. The topographical maps give you greater detail on your Astro and allow you to see detailed information such as:
" Terrain contours and area elevations
? Trails and neighborhood roads as well as Interstates and major highways
? Parks and camping areas
? Streams, lakes, and rivers
To take advantage of these great features, all you need is the MapSource Topographical Map software for your computer and a memory card for the Garmin Astro unit. You install the memory card into your Astro and connect it to your computer. Once your computer recognizes the Astro, you install and run the MapSource software and select what areas you want to send to the Astro.
This is an excellent accessory and we strongly recommend it for anyone who uses the Garmin Astro. BUT what if you don't have a computer, or don't feel comfortable with the whole download/install/upload/ `hope it works out? process? Lion Country Supply has taken all of the guesswork out of this task for you. We give you the option to buy our "Z-Load? Pre-loaded maps. All you have to do is select a region from the map above, and we ship you the memory card AND the topographical software.
If you buy an Astro from Lion Country Supply, it gets even better. We will install the card and test it for you. All you have to do when you receive the unit is install batteries and you?re off to the hunt! No computer required and no installing memory cards, computer software, or plugging in cables.
*Note: This mapping software is no longer available but we do carry several mapping software packages for Garmin Astro listed below.
