    Garmin Nuvi 360 Prices Starting to Ease

    Thought I would pass this on... The price is starting to drop on the new Garmin Nuvi 360, down in recent days from pretty much right on its list price of around $900.

    The Price on the Garmin Nuvi 350 is still at blowout pricing, WELL off it's original list price of about $900. While the price on the Nuvi 360 is no bargain at this point, it is a bit of a relief that it's starting to ease.
