    So, I was having a GREAT DAY, I had gone into Philly to have my hair cut and colored for the weding (in 2 weeks!!), and go do some last minute shopping with my cousin. We had dinner and then back to the car...my window had been smashed in and my GPS was stolen.
    I am VERY fortunate that I have a company car and the cost will be taken care of, but it is just so creepy that someone was sitting in my car going through my things you know?? The garage I was parked in wouldn't even reimburse me the 20.00 I had just paid to exit either...so word to the wise, if you have a GPS up in your car window, take it off when you're parked somewhere, I learned my lesson the wrong way!

          i've been told that if you have a gps you can't leave any traces of it visible. my friend takes off even the thing that holds it in place. if people can see that they will break in & check the glove box.

          my car was broken in to a couple months ago & it was really creepy. they took everything out of the glove box & console & threw it all over. i didn't put anything back for about a week for some reason. I was just driving around with no radio & my papers on my passenger seat.

                Sorry to hear that! I know that gross feeling of being violated. I had my purse stolen from my locker at work and my house keys were in there so I couldn't sleep until the locks were changed.

                    Yikes, sorry to hear that! Hard to believe that someone would smash a window for a GPS.. but it happens all the time. At least you're okay & the company is covering the car.

                      That's totally true, and I've even heard of breakins because the "bad guys" spotted the ring that the holder sometimes leaves on your windshield.

                      I'm so sorry this happened to you. It makes me sad and angry that people would violate your personal space to take things they didn't work to pay for.
