Garmins are nice. Driving directions. Voice commands. Shows speed and speed limits. Nice
Not so nice. Reports of theft from locked and unlocked vehicles in residence driveways.
Another feature of most Garmins and similar devices. They record video if they are so equipped. They also record audio. In the vehicle.
So if you are in an accident you may have video proof of who might be at fault. You have a video capture of those once-in-a-lifetime events caught while on trips.
A caution. If the people who have had their vehicle broken into and items stolen. Consider the Garmin's video card was replaced. Now the thief has hours and hours of your in vehicle conversation. Think mobile banking on your smart phone - hands free. We usually have an expectation of privacy and temporary life of our in vehicle conversations. A few financial institutions now allow voice recognition for added security. YOUR voice. That voice confirmation recorded with YOUR voice available for replay.
If we are also unaware those conversations are now stolen......
