Which is better Garmin 320 or 430

Recommended Posts

Just me, but I wish Garmin would downgrade their handhelds.....far too much fiddly stuff in ‘em, which clogs up my ability to leaf thru the settings and pages with more “huhs?”

I bet the 430 would even weigh less after jettisoning all the shiny stuff.  😉

 

Seriously, hard to best any latest model of dog GPS.....if new works with older collars then that can be a plus.

 

To personally upgrade the software, I found taking it to Office Depot or the like and $15 was waaay better than trying to do it on my computer. fwiw

I agree! Far more capability than I can use, or feel is necessary.

 

That said, after using my 430 nearly daily for more than 5 months, I find it's not too much different from my old 220. I had a few fits and starts at the beginning, but it does everything I want it to now..

Good choice.   I believe the 430 updates dog location every 2.5 seconds.   The older ones were every 5 seconds IIRC.

I found this:  anyone do business with this company. It looks like a god deal to me!  You can choose the regular T5 or the mini.

I think you still have to buy the hunt view card. They are about $75 so that add is a little misleading.
