TomTom helps Nab GPS Thief


Earlier this year we reported on the fact that the rate of stolen GPS units was on the rise here around Boston. Well, TomTom is now reporting that they helped out the Cambridge, MA police to nab a GPS thief. Apparently TomTom, which has its US headquarters only a few miles from Cambridge, donated a TomTom GO 700 unit to the police department who used it as a decoy for a GPS thief. Well, sure enough one came long, broke into the unmarked police car while it was under surveillance and stole the TomTom GO 700. They nabbed the thief who later confessed to stealing other GPS units. Nice Job.

I read this on TomTom's blog as well - what a riot that they caught that guy. Hopefully it will make people think twice before stealing them.

In other news, can't wait for the new TT units to come out.
