So for those who like to leave GPS unit in car, don't set HOME instead search manually... Best recommendation is take out GPS unit and house key.. ^^

Bro jin1119, so what with security password, a lost GPSr still a lost. To disable the password is child's play.
Moral of the story is : NEVER keep GPSr in unattended car. [-X

Dear bros, discussing of "hacking" or "Cracking" is strictly prohibited here. Please respect the rule. :mrgreen:
BTW, I got my UK handphone (Telco : Orange) cracked in Chinatown (UK). It costs me $15.00 sing. Now I can use it in SG without any problem. Cheap and good.
