The ones that you buy here are only loaded with maps of North America.
So even if they would work, you would need new buy/upload new maps.
I dont know if this is even possible.

Anyone else?

Old topic, but i need a gps in israel. Is it worth it to rent one from the car rental? Or is there a way around that? Can maps be downloaded to a gps i have already? I have a magellan maestro...

Thanks!

Renting is costly, and pain in the neck to use. Igo has both israeli and usa maps.

IGO is a gps software, such as destinator, tomtom, garmin, etc. here the link to their site http://www.igomyway.com/en/

The official deal is to download it illegally, and crack for unlimited updates.

I once met an old man, who said his great grand father once met a peasant who said to have know someone who actually paid for this software.

Not sure I can believe it though...

Ok, can you explain how i can make use of such a thing? i clicked on the link and it shows me an android, an Iphone, and a windows mobile, all of which i dont have. Does one need to have one of those phones to use this?

I just googled it, to get you some sort of website supporting its existence.

I have it on a gps device, but together with a few other gps software in one, so that I get a menu when switching it on, asking which one I'd like.

do a little search on it, can not be complicated.

Anyone else have any Israel GPS advice? This igo business seems way too confusing for me.

See my original post...it always was just israel...

So any MIO would have Israel maps or would have the capability to have Israel maps downloaded to it?

Maybe in the USA, the new ones in europe or israel, you see all the lanes, and landmarks on the screen, etc.

I bought a Mio from Office Depot in Israel and had to return it.  It was not usable at all in English mode.  Street names and Points of interest were only able to be looked up if you know the exact spelling of the street and city in English and the spellings must have only been done by the most incompetent of people.

Maybe they have improved since then? Which model do you recommend?

I had installed on my gps both hebrew and english input, english input is a disaster, as the city Rechovot, is spelled Rekhovot, and so on.....
