Sat Nav Crime Prevention Advice

Sat Nav Crime Prevention Advice

Police are urging motorists using satellite navigation systems in their vehicles to follow some simple crime prevention advice:
  • Mark your Sat Nav with your car's registration number to make it harder to sell if stolen.
  • Never programme your home address into the device under the title "home", as a thief will be able to locate where you live. If your car is in town, they may assume that your home is empty.
  • Never leave your Sat Nav equipment in the car, always take it with you.
  • Make sure the Sat Nav cradle is removed from the windscreen and keep a cloth in the vehicle to wipe away any suction mark left on the glass. Thieves may see this mark as an indication that there is a Sat Nav hidden within the car.
  • Make a note of the serial number and keep the information in a safe place in case the device is stolen.
  • Security mark each part of your Sat Nat with SmartWater or an ultra violet marker. If stolen, using either of these marking systems will help the police re-united you with your property if recovered.
  • Consider registering your in car devices such as Sat Navs with tracking agencies such as http://www.immobilise.com/, a free service which enables your equipment to be registered nationally. The company is supported by all the major police forces and helps to reunite owners with their property if it is stolen and then recovered.
  • Never programme your home address into the device under the title "home" as a thief will be able to locate where you live. If your car is in town, they may assume that your home is likely to be empty.
  • Open the parcel shelf and glove compartment to show there is nothing of value left in the vehicle
