I had the same problem awhile ago, the SD card was too large for the unit. I had lots of trouble and did everything under the sun. Then one day, just for the heck of it, I pulled the SD card out and whatdoyaknow?! It started up! I installed the same card again, and just like that it quite again. Sooooo I replaced the SD card with a smaller card, and have not had any trouble since, after I got my original problem fixed. Try this solution and see how it acts for you. Jeff.

710 frozen on tom-tom splash screen


1. Activate the TeleType GPS program

2. Select Tools>GPS Status>Status.

3. Look closely at the GPS output that is displayed in the View Status menu. Data should be flowing even when the GPS receiver has not locked in the position.

The data string that begins:
GPGSV... is "bad data" because the receiver has not locked into the satellites.

Whereas:
GPGSA... is "good data" indicating that the receiver has locked into the satellites. Remember - "A-Okay"

4. Once the data is flowing, go outside away from buildings, select the Satellites tab (Tools>GPS Status>Satellites), and watch the satellite signal strength

Garmin iQue 3600 has a blink screen


Hi,
if it will not power up, you don't have many options.

unscrew the head of the sylus to access the rest tool
Press the reset at the back with the stylus
This is re-booting, all data safe still here.

Hard reset is last resort...data erased here.
Press the reset button again as above
after you release, press the power button, keep pressing until the message
( all data stored is about to be erased )
to complete the reset press the upper half of the scroll button, on the front,
The digitizer screen appears

pressing any other button here performs a soft reset.

Update it if you get it up and running.

Hope this helps
Ric.

Frozen map screen


Try purchasing a new SD memory card (brand name) and installing the files there. Sometimes the manufacture sends cheap SD cards and the data is easily lost in damaged or poorly made SD cards. I have a EVESHAM 2007 and installed the files from the original CDto a new SD card and solved freezing and other problems resulting from poor data transmission from the cheap SD.

Also, try going online to the manufactureer's web site to see if they have downloads/ updates available there to replace the origianl install files that came with the unit. Always put on new brand new SD card.

Hope this helps

Unit freezes


Have you updated the GPS software lately for free via Garmin.com? THere was a new satellite launched in 2008 causing a lot of reception problems, and this might be the cause of your problem. Please update your unit and advise us here of the outcome. Thanks.

FROZEN SCREEN


By David707,
Since posting ma last re: Screen Freezing on external charge; I did manage to get the system back to some normality by pressing the Reset button located underneath the GPS Antenna flap. However this is likely to delete personally stored data on the system.
I should also state that the same problem occurs when I connect the 610 t my PC via the USB connection (another way to externally charge the battery).
A more satisfactory answer required though.

Frozen screen when turned on


Kevin, Hmm... it worked fine the first two times you ran it, then all of a sudden it freezes at the user screen?? I'm not sure if your able to do this, but at the user menu, try pressing the (-)zoom out key and the repeat button a the same time. -If it does bring up the "secret" menu, try clearing user data. -If you have a program that allows you to update the software, version 4.32 I'm guessing (or 5.14) then at that "secret" menu select NAND Flash Format and re-load the software. If you can't access the "secret" menu and it locks up hard at the user menu w/out any responsiveness, I would suspect the hard drive is either bad or has corrupt data. I'm not sure if you can order just the hard drive from magellan/thales/tomtom/shaw but if you can then just replace the hard drive, nand flash format (above) and re-install your software via usb. Additionally, not that it helps your problem, but atleast you would know the pwr and keypad work if this works, press Enter, Cancel and power button at the same time, as this SHOULD power off your unit. Let me know if any new symptoms/problems come up or if you need further instructions. -Daniel
