I found a iQue M5 in my office with a dead

Hi, well these are extremely delicate instruments, indeed. When the battery goes Flat, it can and does cause a plethora of problems compounded by the fact that the "Internal" battery was also somewhat "dead'. When this type of thing happens it can screw up the contents of the internal memory. This in turn causes the device to refuse to power up properly.
But, IF you have replaced successfully BOTH batteries, and you are sure they are OK, Then maybe it will be possible to update or the like via, the internet, if you can hook up to a PC, and run the Garmin software and see if it will update and this may remedy your situation.
However the most cost effective and practical way to effect a repair with a device such as this is to simply return the unit to a local Garmin center, and they will perform a quick, inexpensive repair, with a warranty too.

Garmin iQue M5, Not aquiring satellites

Two possibilities - Antenna (in power cable) or electronics related to antenna. First, do a hard reset. Place the pen top into the RESET hole for 3 seconds...
Next, when the unit is powered, page over to the screen showing satellite signal strength....

If NONE appear within 1 minute (and you are outside and NOT under trees), you have an antenna or antenna interface issue.

Garmin WILL repair the unit for 3 to 4 times its value... A 265WT GPS is cheaper, faster and more accurate. The IQUE is no longer worth repairing....

The GPS appears to be stuck on & this drains

Sounds like the spaghetti cable for the antenna is broken or has become unsoldered.... but to confirm...
Remove the reset probe from the top of the "pen" and insert it in the Reset hole in the back of the unit....

After the unit comes up, simply page over to the "obtaining satellites" page and see if you are getting signals. Of course you MUST be outside and you must NOT be under trees.

If no satellite data is received within 1 minute, your antenna (or its interfacing circuit) is not functioning.
At that point, repair is almost not worth it. You can get a new GPS for well under 100 bucks.... and Garmin will not even Look at your unit for that sum of money.

Active Sync USB OK but City Navigator won't find device.

Somewhere I read that if you do a soft reboot to the iQue M5 it will connect to the City Navigator. I did this and it seemed to work, although between downloading and uploading I had to do it again. The process of loading map set (entire US) took an extremely long time (about 3 hours). Also, if you try to receive maps, waypoints and tracks from device all at once, it chokes.

To open the MTP settings on your Garmin Nuvi 50LM, you will need to access the device's menu. From the main menu, select the "Settings" option and then select the "System" option. From there, you should be able to access the MTP settings. If you are still unable to access the settings, you may need to contact the manufacturer for assistance.

How to Download Garmin Express Map Update in Windows ?

You will need to go to the Garmin website on your computer or laptop and set up an account. I think the sign up is free. You will then need to connect your Garmin to the computer and update it that way.

Garmin 120 wont turn on

Hi Earl, Sometime it could just be of aging. I have a 130, it was having similar problems, until i realized it was the screen not showing, but power on turning on. In your case, I probably probably try a hard factory reset as follows: To perform a master reset:
  1. Turn off the device.
  2. Press the PAGE, ENTER2, and POWER buttons simultaneously.
  3. Release all buttons once the Do you really want to erase all user data? message appears.
  4. Select Yes.
hope this helps! Kevin
