Garmin Ique 3600 - Won't charge at all

The unit was charging awhile ago, I went today to check on it and I can't seem to turn it on.
So I went to charge the unit with the car charger, the cradle, and the mobile charger (the 4 battery charger) and NOTHING.

No light indicating a charge is happening and I can't turn the unit on while plugged in.

My first thought is that the battery is dead --

so question 1 is - should I assume to replace the battery
2 do you think it is the battery

What battery should I purchase - is there a stonger battery out there?

Ique 3600 does not work why?

Well unfortunately, sounds like it's replacement time.... same problem I had with mine. Even with an external or little signal. Garmin charges $200 canadian for an exchange unit.
So much for costumer support.
Good luck.

Fritzed Unit when antenna up

I have a similar problem but I can't turn the GPS off at all, even when the antenna is down. As far as the power on/off cycle, I found another link on this site that said to turn off WAAS while the GPS is off then when you turn it on the unit will not power cycle continuously. You loose the WAAS feature but the GPS and unit still works.

Ique 3600 can not charge thru cradle and car unit but only thru travel charger, using the pin connector (Green light does not appear when using the main connector on ique 3600, although hot sync and...

Solved:Opened the iQue and used a heated knife to cut horizontally into the + pin and it comes like a U, upside down, from the circuit board, and the exterior side of it was broken. Used tiny plastic and sealant in the hollow space inside the connector and soldered thin copper wire (used for exploding dynamite) from the horizontal part towards the exterior.

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.

Unit will not charge, changed battery but still does not work... Help

Sound as though you shorted something on the main board when you installed the new battery. Just sell the unit for parts on Ebay

This is correct. If you want to use it all the time you will have to get a new battery.
