A *MUST* for long range use
Most of the time your dog will be nearby when hunting, but garmin made the exception knowing that you may have a quad runner or 4WD and the rubber duck will be woefully inadequate and kill off your range.
When I bought my Astro it was only doing about .3 miles in the CITY - I measured the power out of the transmitter and had to send it back for repair, which brought it to about .67 miles. That's with the unit in my hand out the window of the car to get a signal, so I bought this antenna.
Range is now 1.77 miles - almost 3 times what it used to be! and that is CITY usage - taking it to the country went well over 4 miles. If you use any sort of motor vehicle and let your dog(s) roam, this is a must to find them.
The fit and finish of this is very well done - it meets all my expectations and is designed around garmin's antenna interface.
I was surprised Amazon stocked this but very pleased they did. Recently alot of electronics have disappeared to outsourced stores off amazon making orders hard to put together without paying shipping for each item because 4 vendors get involved. Cudos to amazon for stocking the accessories that make a product SO much more useful!

Excellent for long range
By Douglas E. Curry
I have this antenna as well as the portable long range antenna from Garmin. I don't even bother with the antenna that comes on the unit. I get significantly farther range with this one over the portable antenna. It will still pick them up well after the portable antenna has lost communication. This is "must have" when driving around trying to find your pups. We've been almost 5 miles out and still tracking our dogs in rough country. You will definitely be glad you've added this to your inventory.

I would have to give this a great review. While hunting with other guys and they loose the signal from their dogs they all come to my truck cause I will still have them picked up!
