Question about Garmin iQue 3600 GPS Receiver
Generic problem for all GPS Devices
This is my 3rd posting of the problem, and have not received answers of ANY kind. It is as if the questions don't exist, but I have no one to complain to.

I submitted a question for GPS repair, on 12/02/08. I also paid to my account $15.00. I have not recieved a solution or any answer to my problem question. How much longer must I wait, which I am willing to do if the time is reasonable.
Arthur Lederle Comment posted on Dec 03, 2008 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 think I have solved this problem.
Go to my computer, right click -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager.
Locate your IQUE 3600, or Palm.
Now, if your palm has a Yellow Exclamation mark on it, that means that your computer is not recognizing the Palm. Select
Driver details. Re-install the driver off the "Setup CD" that came with your IQUE 3600.
This worked for me.
