On Saturday August 9th, my car got broken into and the Nuvi 360 was stolen.  The window was fixed last week and today I received the replacement navigation unit.  This time with a no-slip dashboard stand.

Lily and I thought about which one to buy. Rather than getting the latest and greatest, we just opted for the same model.  It works really well, has good Bluetooth support, and I’m used to it.  Also it was several hundred dollars cheaper than when I first bought it.  Why mess with what I’m used to?

Our next car will almost certainly have GPS built in, so this one is destined for my MINI Cooper.

This time I’m using the Garmin lock feature.  It works like this: when the GPS unit comes on and it’s at home, it just works.  When I’m away from home it will ask for a PIN.  If I forget the PIN and can’t take it to it’s home position, then I’ll have to send it to Garmin to have it unlocked.  I’m registering this new one with Garmin.

This won’t prevent my window from being smashed (yeah, yeah, I’m not leaving the unit in my car anymore) but if someone does steal it, at least it will be useless to the next person.
