Hello, I was just wondering if any of you have had some success in uploading "Tracks and Routes" from your computer to your IQUE 3600. Every time I try this I get a message that the computer is not communicating with the GPS unit. But it will perform the "Hot sink" without any problems, so I am at a loss as how to transfer my intended "route" onto the unit. Would appreciate any help that could steer me in the right direction.
Regards: Phil

Hi pf11 , There could be a number of reasons, not enough information given. to name a few, Is the icons correct,a route on it's own could have a .gdb or a .mps extension , you are using Mapsource software, are you downloading the tracks/routes to the SD card or main unit?.
It should be possible to create a route using the pda itself.

Sorry for lack of info, yes i'm using Mapsourse but when I go to "transfer" only the map check box is highlighted leaving the the "route" "way points" and "tracks" check boxes unclickable.
This problem occurs when transferring to both unit or Sd card.

I'll get around this yet. click the link below and when it opens along the top you will find SUPPORT , place cursor on it and select Updates & Downloads

You'll have to copy and paste this to the address bar
