NOTE: This item has been discontinued by Garmin. It is replaced by the nuvi 265T (click here), with a new slimmer design and more advanced routing features.

Navigator. Translator. Entertainer. Tour Guide. Garmin's nüvi 360 is one versatile little GPS. This pocket-sized Personal Travel Assistant now comes with hands-free Bluetooth wireless technology in addition to the popular features offered in the nüvi 350 - making it the nü way to travel.

Place hands-free calls with Bluetooth wireless technology

The nüvi 360 integrates wireless technology with a microphone and speaker that lets you make hands-free mobile phone calls. Simply dial numbers with the nüvi's touch screen keypad to make a call on a compatible Bluetooth phone. To answer calls, just tap nüvi's screen and speak directly into its built in microphone.

In addition, easily look-up and dial numbers from your personalized phone book or from your phone's call history log. Don't know the phone number for your destination? Simply find and dial it from nüvi's extensive points of interest database - including hotels, restaurants, stores, and attractions. To see if your phone is compatible, click here.

Navigate with Ease

The nüvi 360 comes with preloaded maps of North America, and includes automatic routing, 2D or 3D map perspective, turn-by-turn voice directions that speak street names, and a fingertip touch screen interface - making navigation easy. It accepts customized points of interest (POIs) such as school zones and safety cameras. In addition, with Garmin's optional GTM 12 FM TMC traffic receiver, you can avoid traffic tie-ups by simply pushing a button to calculate a new route. (Traffic services available only in select cities where RDS-TMC coverage exists. Requires the GTM 12 FM TMC traffic receiver and subscription fee to enable traffic capability.)

Enjoy Travel Kit full of entertainment and useful tools

Navigation is just the beginning. Nüvi includes many "must have" entertainment and travel tools including MP3 player, audio book player, JPEG picture viewer, travel alarm, currency converters, and more. In addition, optional software packages such as the Language Guide and Travel Guides can be added for language and content support.

Customize with Optional Software

Optional software available on plug-in SD cards, lets you instantly add new features to your nüvi - without connecting to your computer.

Language Guide - contains five bilingual dictionaries and a multilingual word bank and phrase bank that support nine languages and dialects. Even get a spoken pronunciation of each word or phrase. Click here for more.

Travel Guide - gives you helpful and thorough reviews and recommendations for restaurants, hotels, shopping, nightlife, sporting events and tourist attractions. Travel Guide for Europe currently available for purchase. Travel Guide for United States coming soon.

Savers Guide - a "geo-coded" coupon book that notifies you of nearby discounts on restaurants, hotels, shopping, and more at thousands of participating Entertainment businesses throughout North America

Garmin nuvi FAQs

Q: What are the differences between the nuvi 350, nuvi 360 and nuvi 660?
A: The nuvi 350 is the base model, with a 3.5" diagonal touch-screen, pre-loaded maps, SD card expanability, and all the travel and multimedia features. The nuvi 360 adds Bluetooth support for hands-free calls, dial-a-POI, and more. The nuvi 660 features an extra-wide 4.3" diagonal touch-screen, Bluetooth support, FM Transmitter and includes a GTM 20 traffic receiver. The traffic receiver must be purchased separately for the nuvi 350 and 360.

Q: What are the differences between the nuvis and StreetPilot c550?
A: The Garmin nuvi and StreetPilot c550 are both part of Garmin's "compact and simple" line. While both the nuvi and c550 are automotive units, the nuvi is designed to be pocket-friendly as well, which is reflected in the shape and feel. The nuvis only will take the Language Guide, audible book player, picture viewer, world clock, currency converter, measurement converter, and a calculator. The nuvi also has a screen where you can view and enter in lat/long coordinates. Otherwise, the navigation detail is the same: the nuvi and c550 will provide the same routes, with the same abilities to detour and add a single stop on the way. The c550 also has Bluetooth like the nuvi 360 and 660 and includes the traffic receiver, same as the nuvi 660.

Q: What is the difference between the nuvi and the StreetPilot 27x0/2820?
A: The StreetPilot 2720/2730/2820 are larger, bulkier units than the nuvi, and are not designed to be used out of the car (although you can easily switch them from one vehicle to another). The 27x0/2820 have larger screens than the nuvi 350/360 and are less susceptible to glare in bright sunlight. The 27x0/2820 also allow detailed PC planning of a route, and have the ability to plot over 250 stops per route, making it a better choice for drivers with multiple places to visit. The interface isn't as user-friendly as that of the nuvi, however, and the nuvi is pocket-friendly and takes extra software such as Language Guide, Travel Guide and Savers Guide.

Q: What "extra software" is available for the nuvi for North America?
A: For North America, there's the Savers Guide and Travel Guide. The Savers Guide includes an FV Entertainment card and shows you onscreen where you can use it to get discounts. The Travel Guide contains Fodor's information, such as restaurant and hotel ratings, so that when you look up a Point-of-Interest, you'll get a detailed description and rating of it, not just an address and phone number.

Q: What "extra software" is available for the nuvi for Europe?
A: First off, you'll need City Navigator Europe for detailed street maps. This is available on DVD-ROM, on a pre-programmed card with all of Europe, or on pre-programmed regional cards. You can put the DVD-ROM data on the nuvi's free memory or on a blank SD card. Then you can add Travel Guide (contains no maps), with information provided by Marco Polo such as restaurant and hotel ratings, so that when you look up a Point-of-Interest, you'll get a detailed description and rating of it, not just an address and phone number. There's also Language Guide software, which turns your nuvi into a pocket translator in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Portuguese. To use all of them, your best bet is to transfer the Language Guide and Travel Guide to the nuvi's internal memory (there's plenty of room for that) and then to pop in an SD card with the City Navigator Europe maps (there's not as much room for that).

Q: The nuvi is handheld - can I go hiking or camping with it? How about boating?
A: Nu! Despite its convenient size, the nuvi is not rugged, waterproof, or capable of taking topographical or marine software. The trip computer is for automotive routes only, and pedestrian routes on streets. For a Garmin unit that can do both, try a Quest or Quest 2, GPSMAP 276C, or see the Tiger GPS Handheld GPS section.

Q: Is there a monthly fee for using the nuvi?
A: GPS Navigation is always free of monthly charges. The live traffic, however, is a subscription service, and you must purchase it separately after an initial trial period. After the trial, subscription costs will be roughly $5 per month.

Q: Can I mount the nuvi on top of my dash, instead of with the windshield suction mount?
A: The nuvi box contains an adhesive disk, which sticks on to your dashboard and lets you turn the suction cup on its head. There's also the Dash Mount for nuvi 350/360 and Dash Mount for nuvi 660. These are sturdier solutions due to their design, and are also adhesive. If you don't want to clean up your mount, you can snap the dash mounts to the Portable Bean Bag Mount, which features a rubberized flexible base that keeps your unit secure on the dash without pasting anything down.

Q: What's the deal with Bluetooth?
A: Bluetooth is a short-range communications technology that allows pieces of electronics to send data to and from each other without cables, i.e. wirelessly. Many new cell phones and smartphones have Bluetooth technology, which allow them to connect to your nuvi 360/660. You can make and receive calls through the nuvi, automatically dial up a point-of-interest, and with a software patch (free at www8.garmin.com) receive text messages, which the nuvi can then read aloud.

360 Nuvi awesome !!, August 30, 2007
My Garmin 360 works flawlessly and the bluetooth works well with my cell phone. When travelling and using rental car I am able to switch States without problem. Very user friendly. Garmin makes a great product.

Nuvi 360, June 29, 2007
Navigation made simple. If you are buying this for the blue tooth integration with your phone make sure it is supported first. If you don't already own the phone make sure you purchase a compatible phone. The list of phones that will work with this is much shorter than the list of blue tooth phones. This isn't a bluetooth listtening device only. Take full advantage of what you are paying for. We also like the text to speech feature becausee it tells you the road name about the time you can see the street sign to ensure you are making the correct turn without needing to stare at the unit. A great feature when you are traveling alone or at night.

garmin nuvi 360, May 16, 2007

Has all the capabilities of others and is easy to use.
Nice size screen but screen has glare
Voice puts accent on wrong syllable - i.e. for I-90, it says I-ni TEE (sounds like nineteen)
Does not identify one way streets

All that I expected and more..., January 03, 2008
New Nuvi Owner
This is my first time writing a review for any type of product that I have purchased. However, my new Garmin Nuvi 360 is so spectacular that I feel inclined to write this honest review so that others may use it as a guide when purchasing their next GPS system. As you may know, the Nuvi 360 is bluetooth compatible. Even though my phone (LG VX 9900) is not listed on the Garmin website as being compatible with this device, it works like a charm. Every feature, such as voice dialing (which I use quite frequently when I am driving), works with the exception of the text messaging. My favorite bluetooth feature is POI dialing. I actually use this even when I am not driving. It works just like a phonebook. So instead of flipping through millions of pages, all I have to do is type in a location (Mr. Yum's Carry-out for example) and it will give me the phone number of the closest Mr. Yum's....neat huh?!?! As for additional features, the Nuvi comes preloaded with perks such as Oxford dictionary/language translator, currency converter, calculator (which I have actually used several times), preloaded maps of North America, and my personal favorite--MP3. I purchased one of those CD to tape cassette players so now when I'm driving I hear my MP3 through my stereo speakers. I currently have about 10 pictures and 5 full length albums installed on my Nuvi's memory (so I guess there's really no need to buy an SD card). Other than that, this device turned out to be all that I expected and more. If you program a location in the Nuvi, it'll tell you your expected time of arrival, how many mph your going, and if you miss a turn, it will recalculate another distance for you in under 15 seconds (usually way less time then that). I recommend you to buy this product ASAP. Since my purchase, all of my friends are dieing to go out and get one. Hope this review helps!

My rating would be a five, however there have been a few issues regarding the blue tooth, and some questionable directions. For the most part, I am happy with the unit.
