Anybody have a working Windows Mobile app with compatible working maps for Israel?
if you have web than bing or gmaps should be fine otherwise garmin has a app for WM and there are israel maps out there:

Can anyone confirm if buying the Israel Garmin Maps gives you hebrew input mode, or do you need to buy an Israeli version of the hardware for that?

It has both hebrew and english input.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Also, is there such a thing as lifetime map updates for Israel maps or does Garmin not offer such a thing?

just an fyi, i just bought the Garmin Cty Navigator NT for israel from amazon, and it looks like these are fully up to date, which is nice.

i was a little scared buying vs. renting because the sdcard maps may be old (pre-Jlem rail) since they are sold by 3rd parties cheap on amazon, but i bought with "memoryc" on Jan1 and when i popped it into my garmin 265w it showed the sdcard has a file called navigator israel ny 2013! wonder when they decide to call it 2013, and whether it is truly updated or they just changed the filename and sticker on top of the sdcard, but i guess i won;t know til i get to try it in israel. will try to give a full review when i get back.

Did u need it so fast so that's why u got it from memoryc? I see memoryc is amazon prime but there is also
Another seller not prime that advertises them as 2013 maps for $15 less...
Also, u should be able to go into settings then data then maps and click info to show what maps are currently installed. See if that says 2013 and let us know. Thanks

i'm 95% sure that's where i saw the map said 2013, was funny but when i plugged in card nothing happened so i searched through settings til i found that (too lazy to go back out to car to check now). but I'm kinda surprised since i odered it prime on jan 1 2013, how could it really be updated for 2013 so fast?

I didn't chec other members, just took the one that was on the front of the website, i rarely by from 3rd parties unless i have to, and prime makes a big diff since i'm leaving next week and wanted to make sure it works (though i now see i can't really actually try it out).

The fact that they call it 2013 doesn't mean it only becomes available when it's 2013
Same idea as buying a car in August 2012 and it's a 2013 model

cars are a little different, these maps dates really matter, and when u buy u can't get update for free. i guess you are right that it could be made and sold late 2012 for 2013, but i was just happy it didn't say 2011.

Is there any difference between getting the software loaded directly onto the device vs getting the sdcard?
Garmin charges 100 foe the direct load
Is it any faster navigating?
