I tried Garmin.
I think Igo is by far better for Israel navigation.

What was wrong with the Garmin is Israel?

Does the Garmin have K'varim? What about the Igo?
 Also, with the Garmin, can you type and search in HEBRW but have them give directions in English? What about the Igo?

I have the Garmin Nuvi 1310 it is a very good GPS system, has a safe mode, works very good in Hebrew and English, used it for 3 weeks all over Israel, probably the best in the market.
If anyone wants to buy one for a good price pm me and I will try to help you. limited offer.

so in conclusion, if I want a GPS that works well both in the US and in Israel I should buy a Garmin Nuvi and add on the Israeli maps?

Did the trick for us. Have no complaints. I haven't used it since...sitting around the house as i use Google maps on my bb here in the US. Would i recommend it? I paid $100 for it and would have paid more than that to rent one...so yes, id recommend it to someone in that scenario. Mine has POI's preloaded with shuls, kosher restaurants, glatt kosher restaurants. Obviously not up to date, but was nice.
