I've encountered few streets that are separating two cities. Can I use double addr:city tag? Or "addr:city=City1; City2"?

How to do that so GPS device would find the street searched for both cities?

The addr:* set of tags is only meant to be used for address points, not for streets.

Before you use addr:*, ask yourself: "Does this object have an address?" - if the answer is yes, go ahead; if the answer is no, don't use addr:*.

Never use addr:city on a street.

The best solution would be making a correct administrative boundary for both citys. This way you don't need to add addr tags to streets.

If the tools that are used to prepare maps for gps device are configured correctly, then streets that are on the admin boundary are visible under both admin units.
