Car Thieves Take GPS Receivers, Not Radios

ic Wales reports that the new thing to steal from cars, at least in that part of the world is GPS navigation systems. Theft rates are up and expected to climb after the holidays. The lure? For on they are typically left right above the dash for all to see. Many are removeable and hence take little effort to grab. Finally, even if they are placed under the seat, the tell tale signs one was there is enough to temp thieves to break in. Advice from the experts? Take the device with you or lock it in the trunk.

Will theft deter people from the aftermarket options and push sales of high cost installed models? Or will it push users to phone based systems?
