    E-mail ID # 40 from FixYa requested me to resubmit my question. I have a Garmin iQue 3600 GPS/PDA unit that is in a hard 'locked up' stage. Because of a previous problem, (unit went into a 3 screen loop only when it was in GPS map mode'). All other functions worked ok, until I opened the antenna to start the GPS. Since this was a 'constant loop', I tried to update the unit's software. I downloaded Release 6 from Garmin along with their instructions on installing the upgrade. All went well until I neared the end of the instructions. I was requested to do a 'soft reset', which I did. The unit would then turn off for a few seconds, then turn on again displaying the 'PalmPowered' screen, which it did. I was then told to follow the instructions on the next screen. Before I could do anything, a screen containing a 'reset' button in it came up. I tried to do the reset by taping the reset button in that screen, but nothing happened. I did a 'soft reset ' again, but the same sequence of screens followed. OF MORE CONCERN TO ME AT THIS TIME, IS THAT I CANNOT TURN THE UNIT OFF.

    Must I let the battery run down, or is there a way to get out of the 'hard freeze'? Because of this lockup, I cannot get to any of the PDA functions, making the unit useless. I went tnto a little more detail for this SECOND description of the problem.

I paid for an item and have not recieved yet. Receipt ID 1470-4259-9778-7575. It was paid to WINDSTORM RANCH PRODUCTS on 8/19/2011. Tried contacting them and no response.

if you check on your paypal account, you can open a dispute and they will look into the query. I think the purchase ahs to be 30days old before you can open a dispute, this is to give the seller enuf time to resolve any issues and for you the seller to receive the product.
On your paypal account, go to file a dispute and follow the instructions
