Garmin nuvi 360 review


UPDATE: Though still available and supported, Garmin has discontinued the nuvi 360. For newer models, check out my Garmin nuvi comparison chart.

The Garmin nuvi 360 updates the popular nuvi 350, and both have consistently been among Garmin’s top sellers. The 360 adds Bluetooth, allowing for hands-free cell phone use, and the Garmin Lock™ theft prevention system.

This is on top of the features that made the nuvi 350 such a hit, including a 3.5″ touch-screen, an MP3 player, audio book reader, SiRFstar III chipset, and the ability to speak upcoming street names. The 360 comes pre-loaded with maps of the U.S. and Canada.

Additional options include live traffic information, the Garmin Language Guide™ and Garmin Travel Guide™. Stepping up to the nuvi 370 adds maps of Europe and a traffic receiver (optional on the nuvi 360).

UPDATE: There are now so many models in the nuvi line, that it’s easy to get confused about their differences. To help with that, I’ve put together a Garmin nuvi comparison chart.

  2. Can you load topo maps on the Nuvi 360 model?

  3. Yes, you can load Garmin topo maps onto the nuvi 360. You may need to download the latest nuvi 360 firmware and / or MapSource update. This was not possible on the original firmware but was added soon after the first nuvi models were released.

  5. Deon Goodwin says:

    I have the Nuvi 360 and just purchased a BT-335 bluetooth logger. Any way to link the two together?

  6. Deon,
    That would be a great trick, but I don’t know of any way to do it.

  7. Deon Goodwin says:

    Thanks. The BT-335 is pretty neat anyway. Thought it would be worth a try.
