Do you think the new garmin israel maps work with the nuvi 765 and 785? The garmin site only says 760 and 780...are those specific models or lines?

Garmin finally sells Israel maps for $100:
https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=72664&pvID=73172#overviewTab

It will work with any Nuvi.

Anyone buying?

I'm sure they will.

Is seems that they are now backtracking. Seaching their website it now says:

"Question:  Why does City Navigator Israel not display correctly on my device?
 
 Answer: 
City Navigator Israel is only compatible with the nuvi 1200, 1300, 1400, and 1600 series devices due to the Hebrew text used in the map. If you have purchased this product for a different device and you find that the map is not working correctly, please contact Product Support for a refund. 
 Last modified on:  05/03/2010"


So I am wondering if anyone has tried it on a different device (like the 265 or 765 or whatever), and what happens? Is there only a small malfunction and still worth getting, or have they discovered that it's totally incompatible exept for the aforementioned devices?

Dan, if you got one, let us know next week please, when you arrive.

When you rocks are being thrown at you, or you see black "dudei shemesh", make a U-turn. Fast !

Never really looked into it, but I'm sure there must a function for it.

Isn't that pretty much a standard by now?

Gotta be careful using a GPS in Israel. An easy mistake like choosing Ramala instead of Ramla can get you in a sticky situation. Always best to check a street map first to get a general idea of where you're going.

On the internet. If unsure, find your local computer technician, he should be able to find it and add it on.
