Garmin iQue 3600 still the best integrated PDA/GPS unit
16 October 2010
Summary: The iQue 3600 integrates the GPS and PDA functions marvellously. I bought my first one the year it was released (2004) and have become completely dependent. I have tried a number of other solutions but keep coming back to the iQue 3600.
Summary: It takes a bit to get it set up but once it is, it does everything pretty well. Wish the Battery lasted longer so when I am out in my little boat I could use it more. Nice unit, just a little "old fashioned"
Summary: Unless you use this device as much as I have you can never know how sad I am that Garmin no longer supports it or even has a replacement for it. I bought mine, refurbished, early in 2005, had a battery issue about a year later, it was dying much quicker than normal, Garmin quickly RMA'd the unit and...
Summary: I love Garmin GPS products and the PDA function of this device is great also. As long as you keep it charged and do not let the battery die it is a great product. I do not like the dash mount that does not suction cup to the window.
A useful Palm5 device with ocations GPS functionality

Summary: Its an obviously dated Palm5 device. The price was in the appropriate range. I needed primarily a replacement Palm--and am not a fan of the current "Smartphone" crop. The GPS functionality is a bit dated--but still quite useful. The battery life is very measured.
Summary: Realize that this unit is discontinued and probably with good reason: it just doesn't hold up. My first one lost the ability to find any satellite signals. To Garmin's great credit they replaced it even 'though it was several months out of warranty.
Summary: This is a great PDA and GPS receiver in one. I have been using this for 3 weeks and I love it. The only problem is that it requires a soft reset atleast twice a week (pda crashes). It provides routing and voice prompts. It does provide optimal routing 75% of the time. Overall good product.
Summary: Ive had this PDA for about 2 months and over all it has been very useful. The 2 drawbacks are that the battery life if poor if you dont turn the back light to a low brightness level and that the SD slot is not SDIO compatible so there is no chance of using a wifi 802.11b card to surf the net.
