How a GPS of your car can land you into a mess.

A couple of weeks ago a friend told me that someone she knew had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home, They found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. they then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents. So a GPS device which we keep for our convenience can drag us into a nightmare. Another Shocking incident which proves that technology is harmful if not used properly and cautiously.
