Garmin ique 3600 won't turn on after battery goes dead

Hello.

i have the above model and when the battery runs out, it goes dead of course. the problem tho' is that when i put it on charge, the green light on top blinks and after a while when i try to turn it on, nothing happens. well, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. i also know that the battery is good. is there something i'm not doing right?
thank you!

I did not use my Garmin for a couple months. When I turned it on it said battery dangerously low and it turned off. I hooked it up to the charger over night and the battery did not take a charge.

I had the identical problem; I called Garmin and a new battery = $50, installed only @ the factory. I tried buying one off eBay, but those batteries spec out ok but don't have the pigtail leads required for my M3 (probably would work just fine for M5). I soldered on the pigtail from the old battery from my M3, then put it all back together. Works! However, the new battery ultimately drains down over several hours so when I'm not using it I have to trickle-charge the thing constantly. Bottom line: I suggest sending your M3 back to the factory for a new battery rather than trying to replace it on your own.

'Soft Reset' If that fails 'Hard Reset' while plugged into the mains! You will end up with an empty iQue but a HotSunc will re-intall

actually i figured something else out.(tried your solution and didn't work for some reason). i just reset the device and it come right on, careful tho, don't erase your data, unless you want to. so the reset worked every time.

SOURCE: iQue3600 maps unavailable

You can get City Navigator 2008 CD from your local Garmin dealer. Cost around $100.
It updates via MapSource program and USB connection to IQue 3600.
Do not get "NT" maps as 3600 does not understand "NT" compression

SOURCE: No serial number for Ique

Garmin can activate the unit from either the serial number or the unit ID. Doesn't sound like a big problem, just call them to do it that way. I did that on mine that I got off of eBay a year and a half ago without a sticker.

Garmin ique 3600 not working


Been there. If the unit will not reset with the hole in the back poke you need to disconnect and reconnect the battery. Use a small torx screw driver for the four screws in the corners. Gently split the back case off by the thumbwheel and pivot it around. the battery connector is a small white connector in the lower left hand corner. Be careful of the power switch, ir lamp cover, and plug gasket since when you open the case they sometimes make a break for freedom.

Garmin ique 3600 won't turn on after battery goes dead


You have to charge the unit before it will start from a dead battery (usually about 10 minutes) before even trying to start the unit.

You can get a charger that fits in the tiny little charging port, on the lower right side next to the "cradle teeth". But of course you will STILL not be able to sync.
Radio Shack has a set of port adapters, the little yellow one fits. Be SURE to plug it in the correct way around. (Bring iQue to Radio Shack when you buy adapter.)
