Question about Garmin iQue M3 Pocket PC GPS Receiver

Open Question

Garmin ique m3, unable to download unlocked maps.

I bought my Garmin ique m3 on ebay and it included everthing. the unit works fine. I down loaded the maps and unlocked them. The problerm is when I try to add them to the unit itself. The m3 says the unit is locked and to see the owners guide. Well, I could'nt find anything in reference to the problem. I know the m3 is registered to the previous owner, but I don't think that is the problem since the maps are already unlocked.
Can you help me?

SOURCE: iQue3600 maps unavailable

You can get City Navigator 2008 CD from your local Garmin dealer. Cost around $100.
It updates via MapSource program and USB connection to IQue 3600.
Do not get "NT" maps as 3600 does not understand "NT" compression

SOURCE: No serial number for Ique

Garmin can activate the unit from either the serial number or the unit ID. Doesn't sound like a big problem, just call them to do it that way. I did that on mine that I got off of eBay a year and a half ago without a sticker.

SOURCE: unocking Garmin SD maps

it is in the box it came with, on the back of the instruction book.
If you did not buy it 'new in the box', you will have to refer to the 'activation' code sent to you email.
The Garmin Nuvi 760 does not require SD card maps if you are using it in the US, btw...

Tip

Buying used Garmin GPS (such as iQue 3600)


Be careful buying a used Garmin GPS from eBay or any other private seller. If it does not have the maps loaded already, it could be difficult to get the maps unlocked so another owner can use them. Buying a unit that has never been registered with Garmin is preferred, but not likely. Very often the impression is given that you can just download the maps from Garmin. Not so fast! You need the ownership of the unit transferred to you which can only be done by the previous owner. After they have your money, it might be difficult to get them to do anything. Also you need the unlock codes for the map software. Having the Garmin map DVD will not get you anywhere without the codes. You can always BUY the maps/codes, but these are not cheap at $80-$100. Contacting Garmin about a non-working GPS you bought from an auction will get you nowhere. If you are the official registered owner, they become friendly!

1 iQue 3600 no Installation Disks or anything else.


You can download for free the installation disk software from www.garmin.com. You can also download a base map, but may have to buy maps from Garmin for more detailed maps/charts. You may need the serial number of the unit to unlock the maps, this is on a paper sticker under the gps antenna.

Ique 3600 antenna reception problem


How long does it try to find the satellites? If it trys for a half hour of more with no results, the antenna may be broken. I have read in other forms that people have added an external antenna and their units would then work, evfen with the built in antenna broken.

Unlocking IQue 3600 maps


Even with the maps unlocked it they can appear to be locked.
There are little known flags to diable/enable the base/detailed maps.
Check that the boxes are checked under the <Map><Options><Misc>
You can select either base or detailed maps there.
Disable both and it looks like the unit doesn't have any maps.

Garmin ique 3600 won't turn on after battery goes dead


I had the identical problem; I called Garmin and a new battery = $50, installed only @ the factory. I tried buying one off eBay, but those batteries spec out ok but don't have the pigtail leads required for my M3 (probably would work just fine for M5). I soldered on the pigtail from the old battery from my M3, then put it all back together. Works! However, the new battery ultimately drains down over several hours so when I'm not using it I have to trickle-charge the thing constantly. Bottom line: I suggest sending your M3 back to the factory for a new battery rather than trying to replace it on your own.

Garmin normally replace your unit with a refurbished unit. Yes call Garmin and ask for a new unlock code. Normally they provide a new registration ID (yellow piece of paper with the unlock code for the latest mapsource map and accessories which it also included with the refurbished unit.
