SOURCE: Garmin Astro 220 looses contact with dc30 collar

GPS SYSTEMS HAVE A TENDENCY TO LOSE CONNECTIVITY TO SATILLITES BECAUSE OF BAD WEATHER, CLOUD COVER, TUNNEL ENTRANCE, BAD OR NO POWER, BATTERY LIFE HAS BEEN EXPENDED, HAZARD OF ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE TO GPS SYSTEMS, AND IMPROPER VEHICLE MOUNTING AND HAND HELD POSITION. FREE SOLUTIONS 1. ALWAYS PLACE YOUR GPS DEVICE IN THE UPPERMOST PORTION OF YOUR VEHICLE SO THAT THE GPS SIGNAL MAY EASILY LOCATE YOUR DEVICE EVEN WHEN THE WEATHER IS BAD 2. KEEP YOUR BATTERY CHARGED ONLY WHEN IT NEEDS IT MOST AND AVOID CHARGING OFTEN 3. IF YOU OVERCHARGE YOUR GPS DEVICE, YOU WILL EXPERIENCE BATTERY LEAKAGE, WHICH CAN EAT AWAY AT YOUR CLOTHING, DESTROY YOUR DEVICE IN SECONDS, AND CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR VEHICLE SEATS 4. YOUR GPS DEVICE HAS A TENDENCY TO FREEZE BECAUSE OF THE SIM AND MEMORY CHIPS LOCATED WITHIN IT 5. YOU CAN FIX THE FREEZING PROBLEM BY REMOVING THE SIM CHIP AND MEMORY CHIP AND RESTARTING YOUR SYSTEM 6. OTHER FREEZE PROBLEMS OCCUR BECAUSE THE DEVICE IS COLD WHEN IT IS KEPT IN THE VEHICLE AND CHIP CREEK OCCURS WHERE THE DEVICES MICROCHIPS BECOME LOOSE AND TIGHTEND BECAUSE OF WARM AND COLDER AIR FLUCTUATIONS. IT IS BEST TO KEEP THE DEVICE IN A PURSE OR ON A TABLE WHERE IT IS NOT SUBJECT TO CONSTANT TEMP. CHANGE 7. PREVENTION OF ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE IS BEST SOLVED BY: interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common

SOURCE: My Garmin Astro 220 will not pick up collars dc30 or dc40 outside 50-100 yards. I have updated all to newest 4.0. still not working. Any advise I have tried everything!

Try this:


  1. Power your Astro 220 ON
  2. Press DOG button
  3. Press MENU button
  4. Select DOG LIST
  5. Select the name of your DC 30 from the list
  6. Select SHOW INFO
  7. Press MENU
  8. Select CHANGE COMM. SETTINGS
  9. Choose OK
  10. Change your update rate to 5, 10, or 30 seconds
  11. Choose OK

If your update rate was set to 0 seconds, changing it to 5, 10, or 30 seconds will now allow for your DC 30 to communicate consistently with your Astro 220.



Aside from that, most problems with transceiver range relate to background interference, antenna/transmitter damage, and battery life.

Noise when shifting gears


transmission synchronizers most common cause of transmisson noise in certain gears, and not others, might want to check the gear oil level. Transmission rebuild required. To read about them and what they actually do, then here is a good read:
When you shift gears in your standard shift car, you move a rod that moves a fork that engages the gear. Depending which gear you're shifting to, a different fork does the job. The fork moves the collar to the desired gear, and dog teeth on the collar mesh up with holes on the gear in order to engage it. You engage reverse gear through a separate, small idler gear. The reverse gear always turns in the opposite direction of the other (forward) gears.
In years past, double-clutching was common in order to disengage a gear, allow the collar and next gear to reach the same speed, and then to engage the new gear. To double-clutch shift, you pushed the clutch pedal to free the engine from the transmission. Then the collar moved into neutral. You released the clutch and revved the engine to get it to the right rpm value for the next gear so the collar and the next gear spun at the same rate to allow the dog teeth to engage the gear. When the engine hit the right speed, you depressed the clutch again in order to lock the collar into place on the next gear.
Modern cars use synchronizers in order to avoid the need for double-clutching. A synchronizer, or "synchro," lets the collar and gear synchronize their speeds while they're already in contact but before the dog teeth engage. Each manufacturer's synchro is slightly different than the others, but the basic idea is the same. For instance, a cone on one gear will fit into a cone-shaped depression on the collar. The gear and collar synchronize their speeds thanks to the friction between the cone and collar. Then the outer part of the collar moves out of the way so that the gear can be engaged by the dog teeth.

I own 15 garmin dc30 collars and when hunting they are spred out in no specific order over 3 astro 220 hand held units. I am having trouble receiving all of the collars. On one unit i may pick up for...


Hi, thanks for posting your Question..

At times you may experience Problems with a Garmin Astro DC30 Collar. I've heard And experienced reports of the following problems with Garmin DC 30 Collars

Before trying to do a Hard Reset for the Garmin Astro 220 DC30 Collar you should try and identify if it is the collar or the 220 Receiver. the easiest way you can do this is to check your Tracking System with another collar. If the second collar works fine then you can assume that you DC30 is not working as it should.

First i would Check all the basics, make sure the collar is charged.

I also would Delete and Re establish the Dog Collar in you system by going to the Dog List on the menu of the Astro 200, I would probably recommend Resetting the 220 receiver since it is much easier to reset that than the Collar.

Lastly, If these do not fix your problem you should try to "reset" the DC30 by

Removing the Back Plate (silver piece)

While Your looking at the connections for the two antennas, I would check to make sure there is nothing wrong with both the GPS antenna connection, and the VHF Antenna on the collar. Personally I carefully disconnect each and make sure they are both clean and free of Debris and Junk. (good Solid connection here will only help the performance of the collar) You can carefully use a brush or electronics contact cleaner for the VHF antenna (Screw mount) (See images below). I would not put anything into the SMP (square Antenna wire connector)


Removing the VHF Antenna on a DC30

Clean this before re-installing. Very Important to have a good Electrical connection3. Remove the Four Small Philips screws on the outside of the case to access the battery and electronics compartment. Very Carefully Disconnect the white battery connector from the board (see images below). Leave the battery Disconnected for about 15-20 minutes for a full reset, Reconnect it to the board.. (CAREFULLY) Here you Can see the battery Connector for the DC 30 Garmin

Different Angle of the connector for Dc30

As you re-assemble the Garmin DC30, Clean all seals and clean antenna connections.

Clean all seals and connections before re-assebling the Garmin DC30 collar

That is A Garmin DC30 Reset Instructions, and Many times when you are having Problems with Garmin DC30 collars this is the First step Garmin will ask you to do before sending them back.

Here is how to Mark a Location other than your location. For example You might want to mark the Tree before you get to it in case your dogs leave the tree. Most of the time If you are like myself You want to Scroll over and Hit the Mark Button, However that will just Mark Your current Location and not the location that your cursor is.

Here are the instructions To mark a location where your cursor is on your Astro 220.

Press map

Scroll the cursor over to the location you want to mark.

Press (ENTER) instead of pressing Mark.

If you press Mark it will mark your current location..

After you press enter.

It will either Select something that you've scrolled over and you should be able to save that as a Location, (Hint: you can change the name to what ever you want before you save it.)

Or if it doesn't select something it will say "no Map info at this point. Do You want to Mark a location here"

I know it's pretty confusing and counter intuitive, But that's how you can mark a location where you are not at.


If your Antenna's are not too OK,you can get a replacement from the below link:

My surgical Neurologist prescribed an ORT 13100M my use in recovery of fractured vertibre in my neck. A 2 1/2 by 10 inch expandable cloth sleeve came packed in the box with the cervical collar. How is...


Hello Les, If you notice the shape of your collar takes on the anatomical contours of your neck when wearing it. The 2 1/2 x 10 inch sleeve that came in the box is a extra synthetic covering to be used over the foam collars, most likely by seperating the end of the cloth and sliding the collar into it. It works as a barrier between the skin of your neck and the actually foam collar for absorption of sweat and dirt. This will keep the actually collar clean and can be taken of and washed periodically.

I dropped my camera when the lense was out, and it has gone on a wonk and it wont go back in how can i fix this please help?


The gear that moves the lens is stuck or jammed. Do not force! You'll need to disassemble the camera in order to reset the gears. A gear may have been broken as well. If you force the lens, you can multiply the problem further.

I am having difficult adjusting the Depth settin on my Dewalt DW253 drywall screw gun


Operator's manual is here.

To seat the screw deeper in the workpiece, you turn the adjustment collar to the right. To seat the screw higher in the workpiece, you turn the adjustment collar to the left.

If you've been using it a while and turning the collar is difficult, you've probably got some plaster dust, dirt, etc. built up in the threads for the collar. It's probably worth breaking that chuck and collar down, giving it a good scrub with an old toothbrush and putting some dry lube on it. I'm partial to Dupont's Multi-Use Teflon spray. It doesn't attract sawdust or dirt.

In the event you need it, exploded diagram with parts list is here.

If you don't want to mess with it, a Dewalt service center can clean your drill up for you pretty reasonably. I was in one in early June, 2010 and they had some 10% off service coupons sitting on the counter.

If this answer was helpful, please vote. Thanks!

I have a new pc just got it. i have fix everything but my monitor wont turn on help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hello sir, hi, the common cure for the PC not powering up is the memory module being undetected, so check you memory modules, the terminals should be clean and the memory slot dirt free. Use an eraser to clean the contact foils and a clean paint brush to clean dirt from the slots. You should hear or feel the click as the memory modules are installed. Do this several times until it power up.

If that would not solve your problem, please tell additional info like, fan blowing, beeps, keyboard light status, monitor lamp blinking. Any info can help,
