Garmin IQUE 3600 unable to HotSync, Windows XP

I cannot HotSync the Ique 3600. I have looked at the possibilies such as: USB ports all powered on since according to windows XP, USB ports power down. Removed and reloaded software. The IQUE was shut off and idle for about 3 months, but I have reloaded it in the past before with no problem. The HotSync manager is in the bottom right tray, USB Port is checked off. I do not what else to check into. Thanks for any suggestions. The screen message on Ique was "HotSync Problem, check your connection setup and try again. I have "cradle/cable selected on the Ique. Covered that too.

Re: Garmin IQUE 3600 unable to HotSync, Windows XP

I think I have solved this problem.

Try this:

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.

Good luck!

Is there a way to use ique 3600 with windows 7? ique does not syc.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 and the iQue did not work. There is no USB driver and as far as I know there isn't going to be one. However, I did get it working by installing Windows XP mode and the Windows Virtual Machine on my XP system. You need to check if your computer can run XP mode and there are Microsoft tools to do that. After you get XP mode installed and running, there will be a virtual XP window on your desktop. Plug the iQue in its cradle and plug it in to the USB port. Use your iQue setup CD to install the Palm desktop in XP as you normally would. At some point, you have to tell XP to attach your iQue to the USB port. Near the XP title bar, there is a USB pull-down menu. Use this to attach the device. It will ask for a driver. Just say to use the Garmin-supplied driver. Wait until this finishes successfully. Before trying a sync, open the Palm desktop and go to Hotsync/custom and change everything you can to "handheld overwrites desktop" and save this. Push the hotsync button on the cradle. If it doesn't connect, go to the USB pull-down and click attach. It should work!

IQue 3600 won't synch with new laptop with Vista

As far as I know there are no iQue USB drivers that work for 64-bit Windows. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and my iQue is not recognized. No solution so far! I use my XP machine to synch.

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:

DisplayName=SecureDigital (SD) Card

  • 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.
