Garmin Nuvi 360


This tiny, affordable GPS device offers high-end features such as travel information.

Bluetooth connectivity ; Long battery life

Relatively small screen ; Lacks speed alerts and other safety options

The compact Nuvi's accuracy, features, and battery life make it the best value among the five GPS devices I tested for our February 2008 print issue

Editor's Choice!

Move over, nüvi 350! There's a new kid on the block, and it's one of your own. Last fall, I reviewed the Garmin nüvi 350 and awarded it one of the highest ratings I've ever given a product, as well as an Editors' Choice. Now, Garmin has come out with...

Small and lightweight. Easy to use. Preloaded with map and points-of-interest data. Phone functionality integrated into POI database. Excellent GPS receiver sensitivity

Optional language ($74.99) and travel ($75 per region) guides make the total package fairly pricey ; Watch the Garmin nüvi 360 Video Review

The nüvi 360 adds a Bluetooth interface to one of our favorite products, the nüvi 350. If you want a hands-free Bluetooth speakerphone, the $100 premium is a small price to make an excellent product even better.

Garmin nuvi 360 GPS Review


I am a directionally challenged man. But true to my gender, I still hate to ask for help. But I have had a GPS in my car for the last twenty years or so. Her name is Christine and she's my wife. The

Ok, I want one. Right out of the box, the 360 is fun and useful and saved me more than a few trips to my laptop for directions or information. On the road, it proves to be a great help in finding local flavor or the quick way to the airport.

Garmin Nuvi 360 Review


I have been using a Nuvi 350 until recently when I decided to purchase the Nuvi 360 due to its Bluetooth features. The 360 shares all the perks of the 350 which include, extremely accurate satellite positioning, an extremely bright and sharp screen, an...

Consumer review by:

If Columbus used a Garmin, he'd frozen in North Sea.


Bottom line, this is an electronic map with out of date maps. No excuse for this one--they have current maps and should available as free download. It's a compass that cannot tell north from south.

Large, sharp display. Easy to follow map. Clear voice commands

Maps are incorrect. Unit requires $99. upgrade out of box. Preinstalled maps are over 10 years out of date. Unit often confuses north/south. Shoddy construction (my windshield holder broke causing unit to fall in my lap while driving)

Consumer review by:

I love it except for one huge flaw...........


I am happy with this unit, but am disappointed that it costs so much for new maps. They would sell a lot more map updates if they only charged $20-$25. As it is, where roads have been reconfigured, I just figure it out. Another downside is that you...

I love that the female American voice sounds annoyed when I don't make the turn that I'm told to. :-) ; Small size, I use a friction mount & I can hide that under the seat & throw the unit itself in my purse ; Easy to use with many poi's loade

If I'm making frequent turns, I keep the 360 on text instead of the map. The reason? There's no arrow on the map showing you the direction of your next turn. So I read the text to see if I have to go right or left, especially when traffic is heavy
