Garmin Tread Powersports Navigator now syncs with GPS Dog Systems

The Garmin Tread Powersports Navigator has always been an outstanding wilderness tool to stay in contact with and track of your friends when your adventures take you beyond cell phone reception. With numerous mounting options for the Tread Powersports Navigator, you can take it with you in your UTV, tractor, and/or pickup truck – whatever the day may call for. Now with a free dog software update integration, you can pair a Garmin dog handheld to the Tread unit, and Tread will display what the dogs are doing on the Tread screen.
