I wouldn't with something really expensive, but the Satnav cost me £80
about 3 years ago. It's a TomTom One.

There isn't much crime here.
There isn't much of a market in the pubs for Satnavs now, I believe.
Like mobile phones, it's a mystery to me why there are more mobies than
the total population count.

Because of phonaholics who want the latest gadget on them - it suits me,it makes the 2nd last version very cheap or even free. I just wish thesame would happen with cars.

Some people have more than one mobile. One at home that really isn't
mobile and one that is mobile for when not at home. I only have one at
home!

I have lived here for 13 years. In that time I have known of only two thefts in
the entire street of 100 houses. That equates to me being stolen from once every
650 years.
What about the thefts you don't know about?

Major Scott

There were. Fixed (for now).
It must be well out of warranty by now.

Mine was free on freecycle, there are hundreds of them. Everybody wants them flat.

I would find out by gossip. Or by a police warning. The golf clubs one, the police came and told everyone in the street.

And walk home?
Presumably not that far away. Or they nick another when yours runs out of fuel. So it may be wise to keep your tank full!

I just remembered I have two! Only because my daughter insists on
giving me her old one when she gets a new "free" one on her contract.

We don't get Police warnings. Even when there were a crime wave
(caused by a single individual) we found out nothing until our car got
nicked.

AFAIK they nick several cars in a group and leave them scattered over
the countryside, some on fire, some not. Mine was found on a country
lane a few miles away. It was damaged but just about drivable and
still had fuel in it. The Police called me and expected me to deal
with it.

Yes. You know what women are like.

They are more helpful round here. They even let you off with speeding if you're polite.
