Anybody have a GPS with Israel maps that I could 'rent' for Sukkos?   I live in NJ but even if you live somewhere else we could possibly find someone who could bring it here.  I have a Garmin 1390 T but I only have US maps on it.

Why not just buy the Garmin maps for $99 if you have a 1390t?

  Because it costs $99!!     Thats almost the cost of a new GPS. besides, I don't go to Israel often so it's not worth it to pay so much for the few days on my trip that I will need one.

But then you'll be able to rent it out instead of being the renter...

Thanks David, I cant decide if I should buy the Mio or get a Garmin.

Anyways, I'm going a little off topic here, ;)

anyone knows if any of the local carriers internet cards would work in Israel ie. Sprint, Verizon.

I'm not a Mio fan.  Used them three times in Israel and have never liked them.
