Updating R1 on the ique

I cant update r1, I can do 3 things only. 3 patches for r1. ALL other release
fail. Release 1 is stuck.
I follow the instruction to the T everytime. Same response. When i click on update the green light flashes on then it unit shuts off. A soft reset is required to bring it back to life.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Updating R1 on the ique

If you have r1 then you can not upgrade to the latest firmware unless you ugrade to r3 first. Search the internet for r2 and r3 upgrade or call garmin and have them send you a copy of r2 or r3.

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.

Garmin Ique 3600

May be a hardware issue. I had similar behavior when I replaced my IQue 3600's battery. If the circuitboard inside wasn't seated properly on the contacts coming from the battery, the iQue would keep rebooting. Start by checking that all the external screws are snug (but not over-tight). If not, you can try to open the case to check the two screws inside holding the circuit board. But I'll leave that up to you, since I can't honestly guarantee that you're experiencing the same problem. (After all, you seem to be sure that it has something to do with the software...and you may be right.)
