Still getting frequent dropouts with latest firmware indoors

Vector - forums.garmin.com
Updating to the latest firmware four weeks ago has not stopped dropouts when training indoors. It appears to happen the most when the power is higher (e.g. during FTP or VO2Max intervals) and very little during rest intervals (but it does occasionally happen then too).

This is very frustrating. My HRM never drops out, it's only the Vectors that have dropouts. It makes it very hard to properly do an interval as I'm using Power 10s so when I see a lower power I don't immediately know if it's because I'm pushing too little or if it dropped out (but when cadence goes to 0 I know it's a dropout) and it ruins my files for comparison to see if the training is working. An interval with dropouts can show as 30 watts lower than it probably was (I've tested this in the past by filling int he 0's with the powers before/after it and the final normalized power in the interval raised by about 30 watts).

I have new batteries in there (I purchased the exact ones t_smit recommended) and it still occurs.
