    I have used a GPS for several years but never thought it could get me robbed. My daughter had her car stolen, with her GPS in it. She felt really violated until they used her GPS and hit the home directions and robbed her home too !!!!! WARNING!!!!! Put a nearby Church, School, Hospital, Police Station address for your home address. YOU know how to get home once you're there. I hope this saves someones property or life !! Don't be a victim !!!

    to be truthful, if the registration is in the car, they can get the home address from that too :-(.

    Mine is programed for the local fire station as my home address. But like qbquilts stated ~ your home address is on the registration too.

    GPS is only for "guidlines" too. It has tried to take me on dead ends and one way roads the wrong way. When I gave one to each of my kids, I told them not to beleive everything it says!
