Garmin iQue 3600 and Mac OS X

Download PDiQue (aka iQue on USB) a program for Mac OS X 10.2.6 and later to update Palm Desktop 4.1 for use with the Garmin iQue 3600 PDA on USB without a serial adaptor. This is absolutely free! However, donations are accepted.

2003.09.08: 1.2 - New Home!
Rather than bog down my .Mac account, I moved the distribution to my own site. Nothing new, other than moving the strings themselves to PDiQue's own Info.plist. It's in the Target settings, if you want to try changing it. Older versions are here.

PDiQue, aka iQue on USB, is a Cocoa program that simply modifies three Property lists used by Palm Desktop. These lists are what Palm Desktop uses to know what USB devices it can talk to. By chance, or luck, or whatever you may think, the iQue is compatible with Palm Desktop 4.1, but Palm Desktop does not assume so. By adding it to these lists, Palm Desktop will sync with the iQue. Just run this once, restart Transport Monitor (stop and start via HotSync Manager), and you're set!
Many thanks to PDAStreet community, especially GpsMac. Since my iQue was still unavailable, I wouldn't have been able to try this out.
PDiQue is available for free, with complete Project Builder source code. There is no warranty or support. Neither Palm, Garmin, nor Apple will support this program. If something breaks, it's not my problem. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Garmin: iQue 3600 - Home for the iQue. I never believed the "not compatible with Macintosh computers." You still need a PC or VPC to run the Map Install. But how often do you run that?
