You mean that until now there was no Garmin in Israel?
Also, alot has been written here about about the difficulty in typing english in israel. Does this have that issue, or can you spell Hebrew?
This was just released this past week for the first time ever.  Garmin has never had Israel maps before.

I don't have them so I can't tell you if they're any better than all of the other horrible Israel maps.

I think any gps in israel that is in english will have that issue. There are a million ways to spell these streets. Is it Echad or Ehad? Is it Petah tiqwa or petach tikva? Is it beitar illit or betar? Some of the mistakes my mio made were really stupid. Like kanfei mesharim (yes with an "m").

 I thought it said it is Hebrew also:
•Displays roads and names in the Hebrew alphabet and is also available in English.
  What do you think that means, that the GPS alphabet will come up as Hebrew?

Yes, you should be able to input hebrew or english letters.

Cool. I wonder if there is a way we can all share a download, or somewhere to get it for cheaper

I would call Garmin about that  because when I used the maps with the Nuvi 1310 I think the system language has to be Hebrew to do that- I don't think you can input hebrew when in English mode

Not yet, I would go for it. I've used the Israel version before and it's great. Only downside is it probably doesn't have alot of kevarim like other gps's and you may not be able to enter in hebrew when in english mode.
 If you get it an it is able to be shared with two systems I'll split it with you $50/$50

Are Garmin maps able to work on multiple devices?

It seems like you need an unlock code to use the map on the GPS and that is how they limit it to one device.

I knew that...but there are ways around it for sure, provided you ask a posek
