iQue 3600a Que Applications Guide
GETTING STARTED > GETTING SATELLITE SIGNALS
GETTING STARTED
This section provides an overview of your iQue 3600a
and instructions on how to set up your iQue.
Getting Satellite Signals
The GPS receiver must be turned on and initialized
(given an opportunity to determine its location) before
you can use it for navigation.
To acquire GPS signals:
1. Rotate the antenna so that it is parallel with the
horizon. This is the “On” position.
2. Have a clear view of the sky to receive satellite
signals. Satellite signals cannot pass through
solid materials (except glass) or dense
overhead tree cover.
GPS Antenna in the On Position.
Initializing the Receiver
The first time you use the GPS receiver on your iQue
3600a, you will need to initialize it, which can take up
to 15 minutes. You can shorten the initialization time
by selecting your general location on the map. See
“Establishing a New Location” on page 66. After you
find your location the first time, the receiver takes less
time to gather signals.
NOTE: The antenna is designed to best receive
satellite signals when it is aligned parallel
with the horizon. If the antenna is positioned
vertically, the iQue’s ability to receive satellites
may be dramatically reduced.
iQue 3600a Que Applications Guide
Pull the antenna out
and rotate up to the On
position. Be sure the
antenna is parallel with
the horizon.
IMPORTANT: Remember that whenever the
antenna is not fully closed, the GPS receiver
is operating, even when the unit is in Auto-Off
mode. Press the Power button to turn off the unit
and the GPS receiver.

GETTING STARTED > GETTING SATELLITE SIGNALS
Viewing the GPS Status with QueGPS
QueGPS provides signal strength bars and a status
field at the top of the screen so you can view the status
of the GPS receiver.
To determine the GPS Status:
1. Open QueGPS by tapping the status icon
at the bottom of the screen.
2. Observe the message in the top of the window.
GPS Signal Status
“Acquiring Satellites”—GPS is on and
searching for satellite signals.
“3D GPS Location”—a 3D location fix has
been established.
“3D Differential GPS Location”—WAAS
satellite signals are being received and a 3D
location fix is established.
“2D Differential GPS Location”—only enough
WAAS satellite signals are being received to
determine a 2D location fix.
2
“2D GPS Location”—enough satellite signals
are being received to establish a 2D fix.
“GPS is Off”—the antenna is closed.
GPS Tips
While the receiver is gathering information, your
location on the map may display as different from
where you actually are located. Be patient; as soon as
the receiver gathers enough satellite information, your
proper location is displayed on the map.
Any time you have traveled more than 600 miles with
the GPS receiver turned off, the receiver may take
longer than normal to initialize and find your location.
The GPS receiver can lose satellite signals due to
interference from such items as buildings, tunnels,
and heavy tree cover. Monitoring the GPS status is
recommended.
If you do not want the GPS receiver on, keep the
antenna closed, particularly when indoors.
For more information about QueGPS, refer to the
“QueGPS” section on page 65. To learn about GPS,
refer to “Learning about GPS” in the Appendix.

iQue 3600a Que Applications Guide
ADVANCED AVIATION OPERATION > UNDERSTANDING VECTORS
Understanding Vectors
The Vectors window that appears at the last step
of selecting an approach determines how you will
navigate to the final waypoint in the approach.
If you select Yes, the iQue 3600a creates an extension
of the final course beyond the final approach waypoint
in the database, called the final approach fix (FAF).
The iQue 3600a provides no guidance to the inbound
course. The course deviation needle on the graphic
HSI remains off-center until you are established
on this final approach course. QueMap displays an
extension of the final approach course using a bold
magenta line. The HSI automatically slews (rotates
to show the direction) to the inbound course. On the
Active Route (or Active Approach) page, a Vector to
Final symbol appears adjacent to the first approach
waypoint.
iQue 3600a Que Applications Guide
If you select No on the Vectors window, the iQue
3600a creates a straight-line course directly to the
first waypoint in the approach (from wherever you are
when you initiate the approach). This works much like
any other route with guidance from point-to-point and
a turn usually required as you cross each waypoint.
NOTE: Steep Turns are not allowed on an IFR
(Instrument Flight Rules) approach. Follow plate
or air traffic control instructions to complete the
approach without a steep turn.
If air traffic controls clears your approach to an
airport, loading the approach replaces your Direct To
with a route to the FAF. Load the approach only when
cleared by air traffic control.

APPENDIX > LEARNING ABOUT GPS
Learning about GPS
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellitebased navigation system made up of a network of
24 satellites placed into orbit by the United States
Department of Defense.
GPS was originally intended for military applications,
but in the 1980s, the government made the system
available for civilian use. GPS works in any weather
conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day.
There are no subscription fees or setup charges to use
GPS. For more information refer to the Garmin Web
site at www.garmin.com and also read the GPS Guide
for Beginners, which can be found on the Web site at
http://www.garmin.com/aboutGPS/manual.html.
Common GPS Terms
Initialize—the first time a GPS receiver orients itself
to its current location and collects data. After the
receiver is initialized, it remembers its location and
acquires a position more quickly.
Route—a group of waypoints entered into the GPS
receiver in the sequence you desire to navigate them.
Waypoint—a location you store in your GPS. It may
be a checkpoint on a route or a significant ground
feature, such as your campsite or favorite fishing spot.
What is Differential GPS (DGPS)?
The United States and Canadian governments (among
others) have set up Differential GPS (DGPS) stations
to transmit correction signals. They are operational in
coastal areas and on many navigable river systems.
The DGPS system is available for use without a fee,
but you do need additional equipment to receive
DGPS signals; a beacon receiver compatible with the
RTCM format sentences supported by your Garmin
GPS is needed to use DGPS.
Refer to the United States Coast Guard’s Web site
(http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/) for locations and
status of the differential stations.
Position—an exact, unique location based on
geographic coordinates (Latitude and Longitude).
88
iQue 3600a Que Applications Guide
APPENDIX > LEARNING ABOUT GPS
What is WAAS?
The Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) is an
FAA-funded project to improve the overall integrity
of the GPS signal and increase position accuracy for
users in North America.
The system is made up of satellites and approximately
twenty-five ground reference stations positioned
across the United States that monitor GPS satellite
data. Two master stations, located on either coast,
collect data from the reference stations and create a
GPS data correction message.
According to the FAA’s Web site, testing in September
2002 of WAAS confirmed an accuracy performance
of 1–2 meters horizontal and 2–3 meters vertical
throughout the majority of the continental United
States and portions of Alaska.
All SBAS systems use the same receiver frequency.
Therefore, any operational SBAS system should be
capable of providing your GPS unit with increased
accuracy at any location in the world.
Currently, enabling WAAS on your Garmin iQue
3600a in regions that are not supported by ground
stations may not improve accuracy, even when
receiving signals from an SBAS satellite. In fact it
can degrade the accuracy to less than that provided by
GPS satellites alone. For this reason, when you enable
WAAS on your Garmin GPS receiver, the receiver
automatically uses the method that achieves the best
accuracy. To enable WAAS, refer to page 75.
For more information, go to http://gps.faa.gov/
Programs/WAAS/waas.htm.
WAAS is just one service provider that adheres to the
MOPS (Minimum Operational Performance Standard)
for global Satellite Based Augmentation Systems
(SBAS). Eventually, there will be several services of
worldwide geostationary communication satellites and
ground reference stations.

APPENDIX > MAP DATUMS AND LOCATION FORMATS
Map Datums and Location
Formats
Generally speaking, the default Map Datum and
Location Format suit most users’ needs.
What is a Map Datum and which one
should I use?
A datum is a mathematical model of the Earth that
approximates the shape of the Earth and enables
calculations to be carried out in a consistent and
accurate manner. The datum is physically represented
by a framework of ground monuments (such as
trig. stations) whose positions have been accurately
measured and calculated on this reference surface.
Lines of latitude and longitude on a map or chart are
referenced to a specific map datum.
What is a Location Format and which
one should I use?
Your current location can be viewed on the GPS in the
form of coordinates. Since different maps and charts
use different location formats, Garmin GPS units
allow you to choose the correct coordinate system
for the type of map you are using. The most common
format is latitude and longitude, which is utilized by
all Garmin units.
You may change the location format to use with
other coordinate systems in Location Preferences.
UTM/UPS (Universal Transverse Mercator/Universal
Polar Stereographic) are easy-to-use metric grids that
are found on most USGS topographic quadrangle
maps. You can select several other grids, including a
user-definable grid (for the advanced user).
Find the map datum reference on the paper chart you
are using. Set the Map Datum to match the map
datum used by your chart.

WARNING: The Global Positioning System (GPS)
is operated by the United States government, which is
solely responsible for its accuracy and maintenance.
The system is subject to changes which could affect
the accuracy and performance of all GPS equipment.
Although the Garmin iQue 3600a is a precision
electronic NAVigation AID (NAVAID), any NAVAID
can be misused or misinterpreted, and therefore
become unsafe.
MAP DATA INFORMATION: One of the goals
of Garmin is to provide customers with the most
complete and accurate cartography that is available
to us at a reasonable cost. We use a combination of
governmental and private data sources, which we
identify as required in product literature and copyright
messages displayed to the consumer. Virtually all data
sources contain inaccurate or incomplete data to some
99
APPENDIX > PRODUCT AND SAFETY INFORMATION
degree. This is particularly true outside the United
States, where complete and accurate digital data is
either not available or prohibitively expensive.
Vehicular Navigation Safety Information
Because the Garmin iQue 3600a can be used for
vehicular navigation, important safety considerations
must be followed. Read and observe the following
instructions.
WARNING: For use in vehicles, it is the sole
responsibility of the owner/operator of a vehicle
with the iQue 3600a installed to place and secure
the device so it will not interfere with the vehicle
operating controls and safety devices, obstruct the
driver’s view of driving conditions, or cause or
personal injury in the event of an accident.
Do not mount the unit over airbag panels or in the
field of airbag deployment. Airbags expand with a
rapid force that can propel objects in their path toward
the vehicle driver or passengers, causing possible
injury. Refer to airbag safety precautions contained in
the vehicle owner’s manual.
100
Do not mount the unit in a place where the driver
or passengers are likely to impact it in a collision.
The mounting hardware provided by Garmin is
not warranted against collision damage or the
consequences thereof.

WARNING: When used in vehicles, it is the sole
responsibility of the driver to operate the vehicle in a
safe manner, maintain full surveillance of all driving
conditions at all times, and not become distracted by
the unit to the exclusion of safe driving practices. It is
unsafe to operate the controls of the unit while you are
driving. Failure by the driver of a vehicle equipped
with a iQue 3600a to pay full attention to operation
of the vehicle and road conditions while the vehicle
is in motion could result in an accident with property
damage and personal injury.
