Ask Garmin: powering your Astro


P1030840This week’s Ask Garmin question comes from an outdoorsman who wants to power up his Astro dog tracking system for in-vehicle navigation, too. Titch asks: “I have purchased an Astro 220 dog tracking system. According to the manual specs, the Astro 220 unit can be powered by two AA batteries, USB data cable and vehicle power cable. Where on the GPS unit would the vehicle power cable attach?” Good question, Titch. As with many of our outdoor handheld devices, the USB port is safely secured behind a rubber gasket on the back side of the device. It’s a small circular port that is used to power the device from your computer or vehicle. And to further your Astro experience, you can load City Navigator maps onto your device for turn-by-turn directions before you head out for your next big hunting trip!

We’ll see you back here next Monday, when someone else Asks Garmin.
