    Suddenly my Garmin iQue3600 stopped to find any sattalite. It was working fine for 5 years. I was driving from Toronto to Qubec and it was working. It was working in Qubec too. I turned it on in the middle of the way back to Toronto and it couldn"t find sattelites. I set up new location but it didn"t work. Since that time it still doesn"t work.

IQue 3600 - mine had the same trouble, but a new external antenna solved the problem. I'm guessing that the "Flip-up Antenna" goes bad after awhile. There are many who use the external antenna. Check Ebay.. buy a new one, not used. Best Wishes, Mark.

Well unfortunately, sounds like it's replacement time.... same problem I had with mine. Even with an external antenna...no or little signal. Garmin charges $200 canadian for an exchange unit.
So much for costumer support.
Good luck.

Ique 3600 antenna reception problem


How long does it try to find the satellites? If it trys for a half hour of more with no results, the antenna may be broken. I have read in other forms that people have added an external antenna and their units would then work, evfen with the built in antenna broken.

Even new, the battery is a 3600 sore spot.
If it has been left uncharged for two years, it is probably garbage.
I got a new and improved one for mine for about 30 bucks.
Try BraunOni, Eruope, I think, but the service was great.

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.

Garmin 3600 GPS issue


I just started having the same problem today too. Go to preferences for gps. I did it by clicking down where the battery symbol is and where the satellite indicator comes up. Then click the quegps in the top left hand corner of the screen. Click preferences and disable WAAS. Seemed to work fine after that. I would like to have WAAS enabled so if you find anything else let me know. Wierd that happened on same day. Let me know s.conley@hotmail.com.

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
