The best application for the iQue and caching is Cachemate, http://www.smittyware.com/palm/cachemate/ With that, all is wonderful.

 

Other useful software is WayQue and BrightiQue.

 

These forums: http://forum.brighthand.com/forumdisplay.php?f=53 are the best for the iQue. See the sticky over there for links to useful software.

 

thanks but im not looking for software (i already have cachemate, cachenav, and GSAK anyway)

i just want to find out how to fix my install of the garmin communicator plugin and reassign the device location

I don't believe communicator works with an iQue. iQues don't use "normal" waypoints and as the unit is discontinued Garmin does not make software for it. There is no direct way to put GPX or LOC files on the unit.

IF you use the built-in iQue apps, the waypoints are saved in the contacts database. They use a funky hexidecimal format for the co-ords. There is a vbscript program called waypt2ique that can translate GPX files into vcard entries which can be be loaded to the iQue via the palm desktop program. I have worked up a perl script that does this as well, but it is still a bit buggy at this time.
