Israel GPS
« on: January 19, 2015, 05:59:20 PM »
Where in Brooklyn can I rent a GPS for Israel?

Do all GPS units have the only Area C setting?

I've read different reviews of Waze. Some say Waze can get you killed by sending you to wrong area yet others say that there is a setting. Which is it? It it the same app as in NY?

I use Waze and it has been pretty good.
I recently had an incident where it took me via 'Derech Har HaZeitim'. So I wouldn't blindly follow it, but paired with common sense it should be fine.
I do wonder what they qualify as "Israeli Authority", though.

Waze is great here in israel. Whereas garmin will never intentionally take you over the green line, waze will take you the quickest way. I have been routed through areas of east Jerusalem several times after riots, son depths door locked!

And this is even after selecting only Israeli authority?

Using Waze on the 1 to TLV it was totally confused. It did not show me on the road and kept telling me to exit. Maybe due to the construction near jslem,but even closer to TLV it was confused.

Maybe it's your phone. I've used it on the 1 recently with no issues.
