How to Update Nuvi 360
By Shanika Chapman
The Garmin Nuvi 360 GPS has had several updates since its inception, some of which drastically changed and improved the user interface. These updates add value in the form of increased functionality and a more intelligent and easy to use interface. Updating the Nuvi 360 is a simple process due to the release of Garmin's WebUpdater, a free application that will automatically install the most recent version of the device's operating software.
Download the Garmin WebUpdater software using the link below. From the link, be sure to select the version for the appropriate operating system.
Double-click on the installation file downloaded and follow the on-screen prompts to install the WebUpdater. Once the installation is complete, you may delete the installation file.
Plug the Mini-USB cable into both your Garmin Nuvi 360 and your computer on which the WebUpdater was installed.
Click "Start"->"All Programs"->"Garmin"->"WebUpdater" to start up the software.
Follow the on-screen prompts during the WebUpdater Setup Wizard. Once the setup is complete, your device will automatically be updated.
- Periodically run the Garmin WebUpdater with your Nuvi 360 connected to your computer to check for future updates. This will ensure that you are always getting the most functionality from your GPS unit.
- Ensure that your Garmin Nuvi 360 is fully charged prior to starting the update process, as turning the unit off or having it run out of power during the update process can damage your device.
