Someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home, they found their house had 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 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 out the house.
Something to consider, if you have a GPS and can’t take it with you – don’t put your home address in it. Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.
