Features and Verdict

Our Score:


The 2360LT also supports cityXplorer maps, which calculate routes that take into account public transport. So if you’re trying to find your way across a city, cityXplorer will find the nearest bus, tube or train rather than suggest you walk the entire way. However, no cityXplorer maps are included as standard. Instead, you have to buy these separately for each city, with the Navteq versions costing £8.99, whilst a couple of Sensis alternatives are priced at £13.95. To enhance your experience when walking, it supports portrait orientation, with an accelerometer to detect which way round you’re holding the device. It also incorporates a compass, so the map positions itself according to the way you’re facing, not just the direction of your motion.

Garmin nuvi 2360LT

Although the nuvi 2360LT is not an absolute premium device, it still offers some deluxe features like a mount with integrated power and traffic connectivity. So you can attach and detach the device with a single gesture, rather than fiddle with cabling. The crime conscious might argue against leaving your mount (and RDS-TMC receiver wiring) attached at all times, but this is a convenient system if the risk doesn’t bother you. There’s a Bluetooth receiver built in as well, so you can partner your phone with the 2360LT and use it as a hands-free kit for safer conversations whilst driving.


The Garmin nuvi 2360LT is a capable sat-nav, with a full complement of navigational features and the best voice control system on the market. A year ago its price would have been very reasonable, too. But there has been a further reduction in pricing in the last few months, with Mio’s Spirit 685 offering particularly great value. The nuvi 2360LT is a higher-end device with Garmin’s traditional solid build quality. But with the company’s own nuvi 2460LT offering a bigging 5in screen and otherwise identical features for just £20 more, we’d recommend supersizing your sat-nav instead.

Garmin will have to have seriously improved the routing choices for me to buy another. My 1690 is totally untrustworthy in it's choices on routes I know, so I don't use it at all on those I don't. It now functions as a very large bluetooth hands free device. The Live Traffic is it's only redeeming feature.

I have the same issues with the 2360LT. It mess up all route plans. If I want to go from the midlands to Dover with toll charge avoidance and fastest route options, it plans the route through the middle of London. It plan through village roads when the 70mph carriage way is just 100 meters away... Many times it send me out to the sliproad and then on the other side back to the same main road. No advanced planning, no re-planning or alternative route options. It cannot really plan international routes, it just say the journey is too long (from Innsbruck to Bologna? that's a joke). Many times it plans through small, slow roads when higher level, faster roads are available close to that it used. It's brand new but don't know the 3-4 years old changes, false speed limits everywhere in Europe. That's a total rubbish, my nearly 10 years old Tom-tom works better. I will never buy any other Garmin product. Ohhh, and as LT model it comes with lifetime traffic info and traffic avoidance option... but it doesn't even know the days old road closures, not the actual traffic. The best fuel efficiency option originally wanted to be the longest journey option I think. I recommend to use only one avoidance option in garmin and its the garmin itself, stay away from its products...
