GPS Safety Tip

Do you have a GPS device in your car? Do you also have a garage door opener? I really hadn't thought about how easy it would be for a car thief to become an intruder until my husband gave me a valuable tip a few weeks ago.
Our Magellan GPS has a handy feature which gives you a quick access shortcut to 'Home' so that you can quickly get directions home from your current location. I had set home to...well, our home address. Well, if my vehicle was ever stolen, it would be an all-access pass for them to get right inside the house. Instead of using my home address, I use a nearby store which will get me to my general neighborhood.
If you have a GPS device, whether its built-in or removable, please use this tip to stay safe.
