More new Nuvi models announced today:
OLATHE, Kan - Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced two new series of budget-friendly nüvi personal navigation devices. The nüvi 2200 and nüvi 2300 families feature multi-stop route planning, route previews and innovative nüRoute technology with trafficTrends™ and myTrends™ to make the daily commute or vacation travel easier than ever.

“Mixing business with pleasure, the feature-filled 2200 and 2300 products prove there's a nüvi for every lifestyle and every budget,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin's vice president of worldwide sales. “At work, at home and on vacation, we're all trying to do more with less, and these nüvis can help you save time, save money and save gas every day, on every trip.”

For the busy parent or college student focused on multi-tasking and making the most of every minute and dollar, the nüvi 2200 series with a 3.5” touchscreen interface fits easily into a pocket or purse, features easy-to-use multi-stop routing to plan daily errands and activities, and includes Garmin's ecoRoute fuel-efficient navigation to help drivers conserve fuel and money along the way ( For those everyday trips, nüvi 2200 models automatically remember your frequent favorite destinations and use myTrends to predict your destination without you needing to activate a route, displaying your travel time and best route. For vacations, nüvi 2200 models' enhanced pedestrian mode can provide public transit options through optional cityXplorer™ content. Available for many major cities and areas at, cityXplorer helps you navigate like a local by foot or using a combination of buses, metro and suburban rail systems.

For the jet-set professional heading across town or across the world, nüvi 2300 models feature a widescreen 4.3” touchscreen display that lets users preview multiple routes. Cross-country travelers and commuters alike will appreciate the high-end features of the nüvi 2360LT without the high-end price tag. Wherever their appointments take them, nüvi 2360LT owners can go hands-free with Bluetooth wireless technology and compatible phones, or get efficient routing and realistic arrival times with trafficTrends, which recommends routes using historical data and recurring trends that Garmin has collected about traffic in your area at any given time of day. Many of the new nüvi models even feature free lifetime traffic alerts, denoted by the “LT” in the product name.

The dual orientation of nüvi 2360LT is ideal for use while driving or walking, as it lets users see their preloaded maps and intuitive menus in landscape or portrait modes. And the road ahead comes to life with nüvi 2360LT through 3D terrain and shaded topography that provides unrivaled context and situational awareness. When driving, travelers with nüvi 2360LT and other compatible nüvis can tap into ecoRoute HD, an easy-to-install device that transforms nüvi into a real-time diagnostic computer. This not only provides fuel and mileage reports, but you get more accurate fuel consumption/conservation data by tapping into the vehicle's diagnostic system.

All of the newly announced models in the 2200 series and 2300 series feature millions of preloaded points of interest and turn-by-turn directions with spoken street names, and certain models feature a speed limit indicator that displays speed limits for most major roads and alerts drivers who are exceeding the limit. Preloaded mapping is also enhanced as North American coverage (2250, 2250LT, 2350, 2350LT and 2360LT) includes Mexico. Coverage of the lower 48 states (2200, 2300) now also includes Hawaii, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Grand Bahama Island, Nassau and the Cayman Islands. The transatlantic model, nüvi 2370LT, includes detailed mapping for North America and Europe.

What is the "Asian" firmware mentioned a while ago by a previous poster? Does it offer any enhancements over the current firmware?
mtdog Posted - 09 févr. 2012 : 04:35:26
I'd like to send it back, however I can't find the receipt. I bought it back in April of last year. I'm guessing that a receipt is necessary to send it back - anyone know otherwise?

Nuvi doesn't have light sensor, it has GPS instead. It can find current time and compute times of sunset and sunrise for current location. And then nuvi simply adjusts screen brightness according to time of day or night. But probably you need to get fix first.
mtdog Posted - 04 févr. 2012 : 22:30:51
It does have a three-axis compass which is pretty neat, and I like the "parking" feature too - take it out of the cradle and it marks that location, so you can find your car later on. A very advanced unit, just wish the light sensor thing worked properly on power up.
mtdog Posted - 04 févr. 2012 : 22:28:21
Yes, it has a light sensor. Once I unplug/plug it in, it adjusts to ambient light and continues to do so until I turn it off/vehicle shuts off. So, at night it's at 10% brightness when I turn it off. In the morning the screen is virtually unreadable because it's so dark & there's so much ambient light. Cycling the power (by unplugging/plugging in the power cord) again fixes the problem and I can see the screen.

Are you sure your nuvi 2360 has a light sensor? I have read that it has a 3 axis compass (seems the only nuvi model) but couldn't find any info about light sensor. From what you have wrote this seems to be a normal way of working.
mtdog Posted - 04 févr. 2012 : 20:17:08
I'm a newby to this forum but not to nuvi's...

I've had a 2360lmt for about 1.5 years now and one problem I and Garmin have not been able to fix is the light sensor. Upon power up, it does not work. It remembers the last brightness level, and does not adjust for the brightness at power up. When I disconnect the power cord and wait for the nuvi to say "shutting down in x seconds", then I plug it back in and the brightness sensor detects the current brightness. It works fine after that, until I turn it off again.

No amount of firmware updates or hard resets will fix this. Anyone have any ideas?

Possibly the reason that the 2360 and 2460 have 8GB whereas the 2350 and the 2450 have 4GB could well be that the 2360 & 2460 have Speech Recognition and Blue Tooth whereas the XX50 models do not. The additional features are reflected in the price also.
NanaimoRick Posted - 07 juil. 2011 : 01:59:41
Yes, the 2360 and 2460 have 8Gb while the 2350 and 2450 have 4Gb. Only Garmin knows why they did that.
Gar Posted - 07 juil. 2011 : 01:32:02
I have a 2360LMT. It has 8GB internal memory
selfruler Posted - 04 juil. 2011 : 23:11:42
Thanks, Rick. I am assuming you meant you can confirm 4GB on the <2350> and would expect the same on the 2360. No need for a further response unless my assumption is wrong.
NanaimoRick Posted - 04 juil. 2011 : 22:39:19
The 2350 and 2360 should both have the same size of internal memory. I can confirm 4Gb on the 2360 and would expect the 2360 to be the same.
selfruler Posted - 04 juil. 2011 : 20:18:45
Can someone who has a 2360 let me know the size of the internal memory - 2, 4, 8 gigs?
redinla Posted - 19 juin 2011 : 05:41:03
Thanks a lot Gar, appreciate the input.
sussamb Posted - 18 juin 2011 : 10:22:53
Just to correct one point, the 14xx series does accept downloads from mapsource, it's one of the reasons why I refuse to upgrade my 1490!!
