I have three iQue 3600, one with a dead antenna. I added an external antenna I bought off eBay (Gilsson is a good brand) and it works. The iQue antenna is not very good compared to a more modern device so your performance will improve.

Explain this problem to a reputable dealer. I did this and the dealer told me he was sending it to Quebec, Canada. I took a long time (several months) but Garmin actually sent back a BRAND NEW unit with no charge, not even shipping cost. My new one has failed again and I am attempting to go down the same route of sending to Quebec via my dealer.
I would like to hear more about this remote antenna. Does anyone know specifics regarding remote antennas???

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.

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.

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

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.

IQue 3600 sim card problem


from Garmin:
Question: Why wont the PC recognise my the SD card in my iQue 3600?
--> Answer: Go to My computer and look for the following directory:

  • C: > Program Files > Palm > (user name) > file called 'sync'

  • Double click on this file and delete the four bottom rows that will look something like this:

"SlotId=0
MediaType=1935960423
DisplayName=SecureDigital (SD) Card
InstallDirName=Slot-SD"

  • Then try a HotSync as normal, it should then 'see' your SD card.

  • If all fails delete a second user name as sometimes this interferes.

When GPS is turned on unit locks up


I had losts of lock ups when flipping on the GPS - almost ready to get rid of the Garmin IQUE 3600 since it hasn't worked well for over a year. Sometimes it works a short time with the GPS; other times it was instant lock up when searching for satellites.

I took many steps to isolate the issue, and then added complexity to the equation: update to r6 (no change), hard reset, no user data on IQ3600 during testing, use only internal drive, only use basemap lite on internal drive, only use 1 local city on internal drive, load other maps on external card. Each time I went outside and flipped on the GPS to see if that was affecting the lock up.

Then I played with the GPS settings. The factor that seems to solve the issue: TURN OFF WAAS - it is intended to improve accuracy to 9 ft but it seems to have a bug.

GPS receiver problem


Does it work with an external antenna hooked up? If it does, it could be a problem with the flip-up internal antenna.
