This POI file contains locations of National Parks and Nature Reserves in ISRAEL, which correspond to many of the most significant historical sites in a land with a rich and ancient history. Where available from Wikipedia, IPA district and region of the country is specified. Directions from the original file are retained, with a few points and enhanced notes added from the current maintainers person travel experience.
Israel Parks Authority Sites file "Gan Leumi GPS.csv" was originally submitted by dmhoch720 on 03/30/2012. All points in that file plotted incorrectly because the lat/long coordinates were inadvertently transposed. Any users (download count = 66 as of 3/11/16) should download the new file, which corrects the problem.
Note: On my Nuvi 760 or 765T, trying to view the Custom POIs in this file with the GPS unit while in California, results in "No matches found." To see them, it is necessary to either use the "Near" function to specify searching near Israel or a city there, or to turn the GPS Simulator function ON from Tools|Settings|System and then use "Set Loc." while browsing the map (zoom out and slide to view middle east region) to simulate being in Israel. To actually use for navigation, street map coverage for the Middle East would need to be installed.
