Sat navs

If you use a satellite navigation system you can follow these tips to help deter thieves.

• Take both the sat nav and the cradle with you when you leave your car.

• Make sure you wipe the dashboard or windscreen to remove any marks made by the cradle’s suction pad. A cradle or suction marks may make thieves think that the sat nav is hidden in the car.

• Avoid leaving the sat nav charger plugged into your cigarette lighter as thieves may break in thinking the sat nav is hidden in your car.
