I don't think anybody can answer your question even if a car thief were to be in this forum.

I would say it depends on how desperate the thief is. If not so desperate, he may wait till he finds (and actually sees) something he thinks is of value before breaking in. If he is really desperate, he will break in first then hope to find something of value especially when you display something (the suction cup holder) that may indicate the presence something of value.

Why test your luck especially with the current economic conditions as the crime rate is expected to soar?

Since you probably equate that claim as no ownership nor possession of a "car", you must be a walking GPS cyborg type yah? :wink:

Moving on two "kahs" = kaki power mode (= pedestrian settings I guess as well.... :mrgreen: ).

Just make sure you buy the next gadget like a Taser... B4 someone mugs you for yr toys... :evil:

I copy this mail sent to me by a friend......

Subject: FW: GPS
Date: Monday, February 2, 2009, 10:51 PM

Subject: GPS (IMPORTANT) - PLEASE READ !!!

This one appears to be true. Even it was made up by some one, this instance could happen.

This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.

GPS
A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken into while they were at a football
match. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.

When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had
been stolen.


The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage
door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean up the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Scary when thieves learns how to use the GPS eh?

Thats absolutely right brudder Cflai. Its also more assuring and cheaper too to have a trained guard dog(s) that snarls at suspicious characters lurking about even B4 they approach the front gate or about to climb over the back /rear hedges or gates. :thumbsup:

Nothing so scary if you practice good habits just like good computing.

I have read this in another forum and my simple answer is DO NOT PROGRAM THE GO HOME FEATURE. Thieves are not psychic and they cannot know where your home is unless you tell them. If you want to have the one-touch convenience to navigate to home, then make a POI of your home the same way you do it for the homes of your friends but just make sure that the thief cannot guess that it is your home. They can't be trying every one of your Favorites to find out. The same advice applies to cellphones.

If you are really paranoid, clear your Recently Found before you shut down. Then for sure, no thief will be able to know where your home is.

Your luck is out if you have a Nuvi 205 as the Trip Log feature can easily show your most frequently visited place and easy for the thief to guess if it is your home.

In any case, it is prudent not to leave the GPS in your car for your own protection - not just the protection of the unit.

My nuvi 710 have Garmin 4 digit safety lock which required at every power ' ON '.
At least any thief can have it but cannot use it unless he/she knows the secret numbers
or at the perfect location where I first set it !.

Thanks to Garmin ...

:D
