Tip & How-To about GPS
GPS devices are some of the best gadgets around, and I mean hottest in every sense of the word. Smash and grab thieves can steal your GPS in less time than even the fastest device can lock onto the satellites, to keep your GPS off eBay, and your car windows intact, here are some simple precautions:
Remove the device with you when you leave your car.
Remove the windshield suction cup and sweep away all the telltale signs (microfiber cloth works great for this).
Better yet, ditch the suction cup and totally buy a friction mount. These supports weighted grip almost any shape of board and are easy to hide under the seat or glove compartment. They do not get the windshield or leave marks behind pumping.
This is my favorite type of GPS mount. I can easily grasp the entire assembly / GPS assembly and place it on the passenger seat before pulling into a parking lot, which ensures that no one sees me disconnecting and hiding my GPS.
