I wrote a short post on Israel, especially from overseas, it has links to download maps oplein, Hebrew or English, and some general information.
I'm not a great expert to that so if I wrote too much nonsense there, or someone thinks something is missing there, I'd love to hear.

Here's the link.

Excellent!

Can be of great help for travellers from Israel and abroad.
Maybe you should add some pictures of scenery will add color to tease. I don't care to donate some if you want.

Kinda weird that PCT2014 background

By the way, you can download the map in Hebrew as an IMG to load Grameen devices?

Best offer. Choose any 2-3 images, and I'd like to upload them there. The image at the top of this post is just to share something chshaoshim. Picture trail sure better be.

About garmin-looked at the OSM (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_Map_On_Garmin/IMG_File_Format), and it looks like a very complicated. Have you ever tried to convert maps to garmin with Mobac? They support something called "Garmin Custom Map-KMZ format, so maybe it's simpler. If it fits your device, I can look at it and try to create this format also maps.

Just saw that people did it to different sectors in the world.

But I haven't seen that have informed Israel if somebody can do it properly, it's you.

Me personally it is very fit because I travel with Grameen out-of-date maps from 2011 and it looks like they're going to get updated maps in the future.

Still haven't tried to create those maps with MOBAC, but I found this site which should enable download img format maps with up-to-date information from OSM.

Maybe you could check it out and try to see if it provides good maps up to date.

The map of Israel descended without trails marks and bleeds. Map detail is very low.
I chose the option may not download properly. 76MB file was that the relatively small size of Israel in IMG of Grameen.

I went file for garmin. It's really normal kmz file you can open in Google Earth, so I don't know if your device at all to be able to do something. But anyway, here's a little piece from Tel Aviv.

If it works, I can try to make Israel. This format But it could be a very heavy file (I guess about 4 GB)-keeps inside every layer picture zoom. I guess the format img of Germain is a vector.
