PostSubject: Just for Thoughts - GPS   Fri Jan 22, 2010 3:31 am

A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew
had their car broken into while they were at a football game. 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 out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Something to consider if you have a GPS - 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.

Yes, it will work if you are staying in a Bungalow or Semi D. Definitely not a Condo.
