I have a Garmin 3600. When I want to use the GPS feature, and I open the antenna, all I get is Acquiring Satellites, but nothing happens (the little indicatior on the bottom shows activity). I thinkthere...


If you can obtain an external antenna from another IQ3600 user it
will plug into the connecter on the top of the unit and bypass the fold out antenna. I had to buy one because the windshield in my Pont Montanna would block the satalite signals. When I plug in the external antenna I do not have to fold out the antenna on the unit.
That will check to see if the unit is recieving and /or if the fold out
wire is broken. The external antenna is not Garmin specific but the
plug on the end is so another gps antenna with the same end plug works.

The GPS appears to be stuck on & this drains the battery in about an hour when it is searching for satellites


Sounds like the spaghetti cable for the antenna is broken or has become unsoldered.... but to confirm...
Remove the reset probe from the top of the "pen" and insert it in the Reset hole in the back of the unit....

After the unit comes up, simply page over to the "obtaining satellites" page and see if you are getting signals. Of course you MUST be outside and you must NOT be under trees.

If no satellite data is received within 1 minute, your antenna (or its interfacing circuit) is not functioning.
At that point, repair is almost not worth it. You can get a new GPS for well under 100 bucks.... and Garmin will not even Look at your unit for that sum of money.

Garmin iQue M5, Not aquiring satellites


Two possibilities - Antenna (in power cable) or electronics related to antenna. First, do a hard reset. Place the pen top into the RESET hole for 3 seconds...
Next, when the unit is powered, page over to the screen showing satellite signal strength....

If NONE appear within 1 minute (and you are outside and NOT under trees), you have an antenna or antenna interface issue.

Garmin WILL repair the unit for 3 to 4 times its value... A 265WT GPS is cheaper, faster and more accurate. The IQUE is no longer worth repairing....

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.

Ique 3600 does not work why?


Well unfortunately, sounds like it's replacement time.... same problem I had with mine. Even with an external antenna...no or little signal. Garmin charges $200 canadian for an exchange unit.
So much for costumer support.
Good luck.

IQue Resets itself when using antenna


When I left it running eventually it came up with a "Fatal Alert" message:
"SystemMgr.c, Line 5852, SysLinkerStub(): Failed to load the Shared Library.

I don't know what this means or how to correct it. I am in the Caribbean and was also affected. Thanks!

Fritzed Unit when antenna up


I have a similar problem but I can't turn the GPS off at all, even when the antenna is down. As far as the power on/off cycle, I found another link on this site that said to turn off WAAS while the GPS is off then when you turn it on the unit will not power cycle continuously. You loose the WAAS feature but the GPS and unit still works.

Cant get it to work


If this is an IQue 3600 then you will need to install the Palm Desktop from your original IQue disk in order to sync with your new laptop. The Microsoft active-sync is for a PDA using Windows (Garmin M3 and M5 are windows based PDA w/GPS).
