    You can do it online. You will need to update your astro then your collars.

    I have three DC 40's and really don' t have any problem with them at all. I do take them apart and clean them three or four times a year. It's important to make sure that the connections between he antenna and the unit is spotless.

    Never had an issue with them I have ran them in -30 degree weather sounds like a battery issue.

    Ya that ^^^^

    Regardless of how long you've owned them they could have been sitting on a distributor's shelf for a year. Try buying one battery and put it in the worst one and see how it goes.

    I also don't believe Garmin is making the DC 40's any more as they are working on discontinuing them. Eventually they will force every ones hand into running the alpha. Good luck. Keep us posted.
