Question about Garmin iQue M3 Pocket PC GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Would not come on

I have used my M3 for about a week with no complaints... Then, all of the sudden it would not come on. I pushed the reset button, and all starts working again. Kool, but I lost all my data (no back-up). I had it plugged to the car charger at the time it stopped working. Is this a normal/regular occurance with the Ique M3?

No this is not normal send it back for repair, if you bought it for less than a year you should have warranty coverage. You have to call garmin to get RMA #.

Garmin iQue M3. Gradually not responding to touch


First make sure the screen is clean of any dirt or oils that may deposit on your screen from your fingers. Use a stylist (a mini pencil like item that came with your GPS) or and other non metal semi pointed item and go through the screen alignment process. Hit the "X's" as you see them (it will move 4 or 5 times to ensure the screen is aligned.) After it is aligned it should give you other options. I have seen GPS's recycle trough the alignment process two or three times before cycling out. If you do this and you are still you are having issues, and you have tried resetting it, you may have a hardware issue.

I need to get information on reboot Nextar M3-03


  1. There is a reset button at the back, try to reset the device by holding in the Reset button for 10 seconds or more.
  2. If this doesn't fix the problem, you will need to send the device in for a software reinstallation or internal board replacement. Here is the Support Site from Nextar: http://www.nextar.com/frontend/contact.asp

Know to reboot Nextar M3-03


Since the operating system and navigation software are preloaded into the internal flash memory of the GPS, the freezing may either be software or hardware failure. First, press the "Reset" button or push the stylus into the "Reset" hole, to see if the navigation software can load successfully. If this fixes it, then you are done.
If the program still does not load, then the software may be corrupted. Also, if the internal memory fails to read or write and the software cannot load properly, it may be caused by hardware failure. In either case, please return the unit for exchange or repair to the retail location from which you purchased it, or contact us for further assistance.

I have only used it maybe 10 times. Suddenly it sounded like someone talking and it stopped working. I know nothing about it and of course lost all papers.I think i pushed something wrong :(


There may be a reset button on the back of the device under the flip up antenna. try pushing the reset button and it should reset the device back to the original factory settings. Sounds like your device froze up or got muted. If you still have no luck, call Garmin at:1-800-800-1020 . I hope the reset works for you, if not maybe Garmin could give you a few suggestions. Good Luck!

Nextar m3 and no signal


Hi.
You are facing this problem because of the US GPS Satellite because there's a sudden change with the code signal which leads to GPS signal anomalies.
Even though you've traded it. the problem is still there.
It's better to go with another brand or model.
As this problem cannot be fixed with this unit.

Nextar GPS will not get past loading stage


Nextar will not assist in helping "fix" anything. Their solution is for you to send in the unit and they pitch it, send you one off the assembly line. I was able to get this unit working again in just GPS mode (what it was intended for), so using this workaround, you will lose the ability to use it as a tiny digital photo frame, MP3 player, etc.
I take no responsibility if you try this and "brick" your unit (render it unusable except as a $100 paper weight). BACK UP!!

1) Download and install ActiveSync from the Micro$oft website.

2) Connect the M3-04 unit to your computer

3) Turn it on

4) Red bar should fill and the M3-04 will "hang" in that screen, BUT viola it still connects to ActiveSync

5) Using Explorer from ActiveSync, navigate to ResidentFlash

6) Copy autorun.inf to your PC Desktop, make backup by renaming it to autorun.bak

7) Open autorun.bak with Notepad

8) Change the line to read without the quotes: "\ResidentFlash\Netropa Intellinav\IntelliNav.exe"

9) Save As to your desktop autorun.inf

10) Copy back to your ResidentFlash directory on the M3-04

11) Disconnect from PC and hit the reset button on back....BOOYA! Your GPS is functioning again.

Streets not visible on Garmin 200w


First try this: I believe simply pushing the reset button will fix your problem. The reset is located under the frame around the screen. To remove the frame, use your finger nail to carefully lift it off the screen. Then just push the reset button and you should be back in business.

please rate my answer as a fixya! Thanks.

Garmin 660 locked up / frozen


Resetting the device merely resets the power connection, on some devices there is a reset to manufacturer defaults on settings, but not your stored data. Working with GPS's 40 hours a week I constantly have to use the reset button when they lock up. Just press it in for a few seconds then if it doesn't power back up just hit the power button and everything should be fine.
