Maiden Voyage: Garmin Nuvi 360

We took Shira's new GPS, a nüvi 360, out for a spin tonight. Our previous iQue M5 GPS died on us suddenly, so we needed a quick replacement. Amazon had what appears to be a fantastic price on the nüvi, so we jumped on it.

In the 10 minutes I've used it, I'm thoroughly impressed. The device is tiny, quite responsive and was very easy to setup (no more loading gigs of maps!). The GPS features seem all there, including the 3D map view.

The nüvi also comes with a variety of other features, like an mp3 player and Bluetooth support. Not sure how much use we'll get from them, but they might be handy. Especially the Bluetooth, which should allow for a nice hands free setup while traveling.

The nüvi is billed as a personal travel companion and so far, I think Garmin nailed it.



  1. Hi Ben-

    Thanks for adding SmartLinks to your site. I'm glad you like them. Also glad you like the Nuvi. I did a post on the 350 a while back (back in the days when we called them BlueLinks).
    Good meeting you last night at the meetup.

    I bought myself a 350 about 2 months ago (couldn't buy the 360 just for the Bluetooth feature - sorry). Love it. Loved it so much, that I bought my dad and brother one each for the holidays. I hope you guys enjoy it just as much.
