Summary: Since this is my first GPS, I really have no way to compare whether this GPS is "better" than others. I can only describe my experiences with it. I first used the GPS locally (southeastern PA) to test it out since I had an upcoming trip to VT where I planned to really use it.
Summary: There are 3 fatal flows with this product: (1) announcing too late and (2) giving confusing directions at complicated lane guidence situation and (3) taking too long to find satellite initially. I have been testing this product for a month in San Francisco and the Bay area.
nice unit and Garmin if contacted can provide upcoming latest map
17 April 2008
Summary: This unit is quite light, is not much thicker than a palm, and has nice features like remembering favorite locations, being able to enter the actual coordinates instead of an address, having blue tooth to connect to some phones, and playing mp3s.
Summary: I used the Nuvi 370 in December 2007 when for a business trip that brought me to Germany, Austria, France and the Netherlands. The map and the mapping software is very accurate. As expected, the pronunciation of non-American streets is incorrect but that is to be expected.
Summary: We bought this hoping it would work both in the US and in the backwoods of southern France -- and it more than met our expectations. It worked just great in the US, which was no surprise. In France, is was "impecable!
Summary: This is my first GPS, so this is not a "Garmin vs. other brands" review. First a word of advice: Do not leave either your GPS *or* the mounting arm in your car when you park. My mom's car was broken into by someone who saw the bare mounting arm and broke her window just to *check* if the GPS was...
Problems with satellites reception on Garmin Nuvi 370
Venitian 1 "C G", Amazon
2 January 2008
Summary: Bought this Nuvi 370 March 2007. Worked fine just out of the box for 3 months. Then it started to malfunction and not receive satellites. Garmin replaced it with a reconditoned one. Out of the box the keybord of the second one was not working. Sent it back at my expenses and received a third one.
Summary: Like another reviewer, I purchased my 370 for a trip to Italy. The Venice area specifically. I tried it around home for 1 day before I went, and found that it was generally ok, but sometimes gives you exit names that are not on the signs.
Summary: I bought the 370 before a trip to France this fall. It was handy in Paris but it really proved it's worth in Brittany. When we got off the train and into our rental car in Rennes we were lost, until we turned on the 370 and let it lead us out of town. We became more and more trustful as we drove.
Summary: The Garmin Nuvi 370 would be awesome if you needed the European maps as well as North American maps. It costs more than the Nuvi 350/360 but worth it for the two map packages. European software package would be $250 if purchased separately with the Nuvi 350 or 360.
