Thanks for sharing and good job on transferring your data from the 650 to the 23xx. Good to see that the Voice Command is working well, on my 3790T it works fine as long as there isn't too much noise, music on the car stero is generally a problem...

I take it you got a powered mount with your 2360 as rmaffeo found in the manual? That's a big plus in my book in terms of convenience and was a letdown on the 1xxx series.

Yes the 2360 has a powered mount... as did the old 650. The Voice Command does not like a real noisy background, so I mute the car stereo when using it and ask any other people in the car to stop talking. Normal road noise does not seem to bother it. You can call up your favorites via Voice Command but it only shows 3 at a time starting with the closest one to you and even though I have categories of favorites, Voice Command does not show them. Using the touch screen with favorites displays the categories on its first screen. Voice Command does not recognize any favorites that are very far down my list so I cannot activate one that is far away... only those that are fairly close can be called by name. Yes, I can say "Down" to scroll the list down one at a time but this is tedious with a long list of favs. Not a biggie, but still.

Navigation is much like the old 650. I am using the same voice (male)and street name pronunciation seems a bit better on the 2360. The display is better and lane assist is cool. I had the car out at night tonight and the 2360 automatically went into night mode display and dimmed the brightness automatically to 50%. Just right for me.

I can still edit the Current.gpx file via NotePad in Windows just like I did for the 650. The file is structured the same. Current.gpx holds the Favorites. The only difference is the Category feature which the 650 did not have. I like to add the address, postal or zip code and phone number to my Favorites in this way. Current.gpx must be renamed as Temp.gpx on the PC before copying it back to the nuvi.

So far, it's a keeper.

Tom, check out all the Photoreal Junction views it has in Canada...in Quebec/Ontario, we have about every exit covered now on all major highways...

I believe we will see that in another map update on the 37xx series as well...not 2011.3, but probably the next one. Garmin has added thousands of them for Canada.

Shh! Be quiet - I need to talk to my Nuvi. Talk about the tail wagging the dog...

Yes, the machine's taking over! Trying to enter an address vocally on the 3790T while driving and with two passengers talking in the back is guaranteed to raise some smiles when the result comes up ;-)

Thanks for the review Tom. I am curious, how's the map rendering speed and looking up POIs? I know with my 750, 650 and 350 there wasnt much difference. And with the 750 the detail of the maps wasn't as good as many have reported. I wonder if that's been fixed? For me, I could do without the voice commands, I'd rather have an earphone jack although I admit, I rarely use it ;)

The map rendering speed is a little faster than the 650 as far as I can tell. I can't do a side-by-side comparison as I have sold the 650. Searching the POI database is also faster. It takes 10 sec. to search the whole db for a non-existent POI before getting the "not found" message. On the 650 this took forever, it seemed (never timed it). The map detail seems to be about the same as the 650... perhaps a little better. It would be nice to see them side-by-side. Working from memory is not my strong suit.

continued : The Favorites file on the 2360 (Current.gpx) also holds track logs. This was not the case with the 650. Here is a snip-it of this track log at the end of the Current.gpx file. It seems to be logging every 30 sec. or so. I am wondering if this just keeps building forever making for a huge Current.gpx file?

Most, if not all Nuvi models, after the 600 series have had TRIP LOGS and that is what your seeing in the current.gpx file. Actual "track logs" have to be turned on through the diagnostic screens and are saved in the LOGS folder inside the hidden .system folder on the Nuvi(on the 1xxx and 37xx models (probably your 23xx as well) and my other tricks on the 2xx and 7xx).

The "trip log" your seeing in the Current.gpx file is limited to 10000 points, if I recall correctly, and then older data is overwritten by newer information. This 'trip log' is the cyan line you see on the map screen if you have the Nuvi set to show it (Tools - Settings - Map - Trip log - Show on the 1xxx models or Tools - Navigation - Automotive - Trip Log - Show on Map for the 37xx models and probably the same for the 23xx).

Thanks for the screenshots. They look to be identical to the 37xx series screens.

Rally looks like a 37xx. Does it share the same problems as 37xx or has Garmin fixed some?

Good question. Most important to me would be, can you transfer routes from Mapsource or create a route on the Nuvi (other than than using the Trip Planner)

The screenshots also look identical to the 1695. ;)

Thanks for sharing. My StreetPilot 2730 went to "GPS Heaven" last month, so this is helping me to find a suitable replacement. I'll probably end up getting a 2350LMT, though...

I am looking at upgrading to a 2360lmt from a 255lm. Big step. New features for me would be traffic, voice activation, bluetooth, route planning, lane assist, junction view, dual orientation, and a larger screen. Many of these features, less and except voice activation, dual orientation, and bluetooth can be found in the 2350LMT for a little less. I have no experience with any of these features but I see above that bluetooth works well, the menus look great, and the junction views are getting better in Canada. I will be using the unit in the Southeastern US, particularly around Atlanta, Birmingham, and all along I-85 and I-75 in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, and the Carolinas. Based on your experience, are any of these features still not up to par in their implementation in the 23xx series?
