Question about Garmin iQue 3600 GPS Receiver
I suspect that you have the same problem that happened to me. When I replaced the battery the gps antenna cable inside got stretched and broke off from its connection. Now I need to decide if its worth the risk of taking it appart again and attempt to resolder.
I hear that there are instances where the antenna simply goes bad and as others have said the cheapest solution is to just plug in an external gps antenna. I agree that an external antenna will be more sensitive as well.

I have a unit like that. The antenna appears to be dead. It just searches forever and never finds anything. I use an external antenna that I got from eBay (brand is Gilsson) and it works fine. You just plug it in the external jack (after removing the little rubber plug) and it works even better than the built-in antenna.
