Hoboken GPS spottings still happen in 2014

I thought the Hoboken GPS Spottings category would have run it’s course last year, but I was mistaken. People still have dedicated GPS units that they leave in their car. How come?

One reason that people might still have GPS (despite great smart phone apps like Waze), is because they want to drive with navigation AND still text and message other people while they drive. It’s the only explanation I can come up with.

And perhaps these days, thieves are less inclined to take the risk anymore – because pawn shops probably only pay $10 for an average GPS you can pick up at Walmart.

Regardless, no matter what time of day or night, it’s never a good idea. Like leaving money on the dash!

About Hoboken GPS spottings

The Hoboken GPS Spotting feature exists, not for the purpose of publicly “shaming” anyone, but rather to raise awareness that it’s not in your best interest to leave items of value in plain sight. If people chose common sense over convenience or carelessness, perhaps we can provide fewer opportunities for petty criminals to get away with an easy grab.

If this feature just saves one person from being victimized, then it’s worth it to me.

What do you prefer? The hassle of filing a police report and fixing your car? Or taking a few seconds of extra time to prevent it?
