Updating your Garmin Products

Garmin engineers are constanty making improvements on the software of the Alpha 100, Astro 320 and respective collars. Here we will show you how to make sure your handheld and collars are up to date with the most current software. 

Before you start you will need to visit Garmin's website and download the WebUpdater Software:

 

After you have installed the WebUpdater to your computer the rest of the process is pretty easy!
