Expected Availability: June 2006
Navigator. Translator. Entertainer. Tour Guide. Garmin's nüvi(TM) 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 go-anywhere travel companion.
Place hands-free calls with Bluetooth wireless technology:
The nüvi 360 along with its counterpart the nüvi 310 integrate 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.
Navigate with Ease:
The nüvi 360 comes with preloaded maps of Europe or 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 11 FM TMC traffic receiver, you can avoid traffic tie-ups by simply pushing a button to calculate a new route.*
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(TM) and Travel Guides(TM) can be added for language and content support.
