Garmin Nuvi 360 Now Works With iPhone !

Nuvi 360 : GPS SW Version 2.60 / Bluetooth Software Version 2.21

I am extremely happy to report that the Garmin Nuvi 360 now works with iPhone !  This is great timing as the new hands free law just went into effect on July 1 here in California.

To Pair

1. Enable Bluetooth on your Garmin Nuvi 360 (or any Garmin model with Bluetooth)  Settings/Bluetooth/Enable

2. Enable Bluetooth on iPhone.  Settings/General/Bluetooth/On

3.  The Nuvi will display a passcode #1234.  Enter the passcode into the iPhone.

I tested it for the better part of the day yesterday with minimal drop outs.
