I was given my late father's Navman F20 when he died in November... i have reset all the details but it keeps telling me that my home address is in a village 4 miles away? it does not recognise my...

I definately wouldn't toss it out yet. Most GPS' are pretty solid and last for years. Sometimes they just need an update...or a jumpstart! Here are a couple of things to try:
1) Try the following reset options. From the menu on the device, go to: Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Delete Preferences. Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Delete Favourites . Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Delete Recent Addresses. Preferences --> System --> Reset --> Factory Reset. This option restores ALL settings to factory defaults.
If that doesn't work, then perform this step: Preferences --> System --> Reset --> GPS Reset.
After you complete the steps above, then take it outside to allow it time to 'find itself' (this may take 3-5 minutes), and see if the position becomes accurate again.
Hope this helps! Cheers!

I have tomtom910 its in french language i need to traslate in english

You will have to check 2 settings. First one. Tap on the screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on the arrow 3 times. You should be on page: Preferences 4 of 6 by now. Tap on change language. Tap on English US. Tap on Yes.
Second one: Tap on the screen. Tap on change preferences: Tap on the arrow once (You should be on: Preferences 2 of 6 by now. Tap on change voice. Select a voice which has English US or UK after the name (example: Lori, English US). You can also Select a voice, that has English US or UK, computer ( example: Simon, English UK, Computer), if you would like spoken street names, (provided your unit is capable of saying street names). Test and select. Go through voice preferences. Tap Done.
Note: although all units are capable of speaking instructions only some units are capable of speaking street names and the *computer* part is important for that feature to work.

I would like to just use my tomtom just to see the road names

Under the change preferences general menu, use the right arrow to go to the 4th page (4/8) and tap the Street Name preferences. Then put a check mark in the boxes Show Street names, Show next Street name, and Show current name on map.
Press Done, twice.
As some menu options may be hidden, the Street name preferences option may be on some other page..

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!

Why will my Garmin not sync into my computer?

First, right click the hotsync button in the task bar and make sure "USB" is selected (assuming you're using USB...).
If that doesn't work, let me know.

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!

I believe not,and there is sparse info about the insides of these on the net; however This is often possible for many types of electronic equipment - the thing to check first is use a multimeter and check the voltage at the cradle where it connects to the gps - if it is 12 volts(11.2 - 13.8v) there then the cradle has no power electronics except perhaps a fuse or surge protector, or a noise suppression filter. However looking at photos of the cradle, the price for a replacement, and the other features built into the cradle, I believe there is stuff in there, bypassing which will not do your unit any favours. To make absolutely sure, see if you can open the cradle up and see what it actually contains without breaking it - post us a photo if you are unsure. Especially considering the damage to the resale value of the unit, I have to ask is it not better just to get a handheld or flush-mounted unit rather than modifying your 700? If you just have got fed up with replacing damaged cradles (as some have according to reviews) then the universal cradle appears to be a more reliable replacement than the original; although it is sold elsewhere also. If your reason is that you want to be able to move it around from the cradle position without moving the cradle, then so long as you can identify the power terminals on the cradle/unit you should be able to merely connect a cable between them, within reason and almost certainly within the dimensions of a vehicle. Hope this helps, please post again if you would like more help :)
