Using the be-on-road app on my android tablet I'm not able to select Jerusalem as town for specifying a destination. I can find every little town of Israel but not the capitol city ?

Could you provide an example of a town name which works?

Hmm … I see no problem when searching on osm.org or in the nominatim entry. So it might be best to ask at the app developers/sellers/maintainers/company – they know their app best.

This may be a reason for your problem: Maybe you should try to search for the specified full main "name" of "Jerusalem". Currently it is " القُدس ירושלים ". If your app only searches for this one, then it may have a problem, yes. As I understand, the main "name" is currently both, the arabic and hebrew name concatenated.
