iQue Conduit for Mac 1.1.1

Export Tracks and Waypoints from your Garmin iQue to your Mac

A Freeware Conduit by Michael Thies


The Garmin iQue 3600 is a PalmOS 5 PDA with built-in GPS capabilities and comes with Windows software only. iQue Conduit allows you to export tracks and waypoints from the iQue to your Mac during a HotSync operation. Data is exported in the standard XML-based GPX format and can then be brought into compatible GPS software.

System Requirements

Garmin iQue PDA (obviously), MacOS X 10.2 or later, basic HotSync (without navigation data) already working, GPX compatible GPS software.


The iQue Conduit is provided as a disk image for MacOS X. It comes with more detailed documentation.
