You're right! In general thieves aren't all that bright and, if given the choice, they would probably opt to steal an inferior Magellan instead.

I think that would be the other way around just look at the news story.
He must have been a fool he got caught with 2 garmins.

But at least he knew where he was and wasn't wandering around lost in the woods wishing he had a GPS unit to help him find his way back out. Smile

Iíve told this story before, but I think itís worth repeating, since it is after all a true story. A friend of mine had a Magellan, (I know, I know, friends donít let friends own Magellans) and heíd left it in his car, right on the dash for everyone to see....he was sort of worried, because it wasnít the best neighborhood. We werenít in the store long, because I knew he was concerned. Sure enough, when we got back to the car, they had broke in somehow, and instead of one Magellan, there were three in there now! Sheesh! Confused

Wow now that is a old joke. But I belive it was the other way around.
I have never been lost with my magellan but I have used a Garmen and had all kinds of trouble. they just dont work like they should.

Thankfully when you use a Garmin you don't the same problems you apparently do with a Garmen.

Stay on topic in an off-topic thread split off from another off-topic thread. Neat Smile

BTW, cm, it was just a joke -- no need to get all fired up.
