Live dog tracks

Is there a way to view live dog tracks without attaching a phone to the dog for a search or mock drill? I know I can add my Harmon Astro tracks after but not be able to view it live.

    Well, it's complicated. I know Garmin has some sort of dog collar and some teams are able to get those to send a location report that they can view in CalTopo/SARTopo. It's not something that we at CalTopo directly support, but I can point you towards some resources if you're inclined to go down that path.

    We do have an API you can send position updates to, if you can get them into the right format. There's a guy in Washington that wrote a program to get the Garmin collars into this format, but it's a volunteer/hobby project and we can't promise any level of support from him. This is the link to that program:
