My other tomtom, a 1000 go live was doing the same, it's the boot up info. It just got worse and eventually I had to post it in for service.
Good news for me is that they replaced it and the new one is sitting in my work where it has been for the past 2 years.

If I were you and squadrone rosso, I'd start removing your navs just in case. The auto express long term Panda Cross had a smash and grab of their unit, and I had a door lock smashed in outside my in laws house in a quiet sleepy village.

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

also remove any sat-nav mount and hide as it is a giveaway there is a sat-nav in the glovebox if it is visible to passers by

Oh yes, sorry. I meant to set it as unlisted.

The police came today to take a look. I gave them a thumb drive to take away.
They phoned an hour later to say they know who it is!
So that's great.

I'll have to make the other video private for now too as I don't want to spoil any chance of conviction etc.

Hopefully they'll get the job done right.

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

If he's known then they will pick him up, at some point, youll get told at some point and he'll probably get some sort of court sentence, if he's a frequent flyer then maybe even a custodial one, hopefully you'll get a victim charge out of it or he'll have to pay you something as a result.

Just be careful now as people talk so you might get some other scrotes check your doors on your cars.

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

Horrible thing to happen to you buddy, hope everyone at home is feeling a bit better about it all now that the police know who it is.

Fair play to you for getting all the cameras set up though! What a difference they make in helping identify the culprits.

Anyway fingers crossed you get some sort of decent outcome.

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

Providing cctv footage has its downsides, we had a couple of bikes nicked from work which was captured on our cctv, police arrived and I gave them a DVD of the footage, they caught them and they were brought to court but because I had provided the cctv evidence I was summonsed to appear as a witness, fortunately they absconded and case dident go ahead but I was not comfortable with the potential intimidation etc that could have ensued once they knew who I was

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

I think that's what might happen here. The police are coming back tomorrow for my statement, and me signing something about providing them with the cctv footage.

Not nice when they know where you live.

My wife is feeling a bit better now. The police reckoned he was most probably trying to see if there were keys on the shelf through the letterbox.

My next door neighbour called earlier. He fits security systems and has numerous cameras around his property. He checked his footage after I called on him yesterday. The same guy went onto his drive and tried the front door and then his van, both were locked.
Was he actually going to go inside if it was unlocked? Flaming looney!

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

Not yet, I am unsure if they have recovered it?

I bet they dawn raided him as they called me this morn at 8:30 to say they need my statement before the interview.

I have to sign it later, and I'll ask if they have it.

Need to call tomtom now to see if they can give me the serial number of the unit.

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

Sentencing today for this.

The CCTV was instrumental in proving the case. He's also put his hands up to attempted theft from the other 2 cars we own, and attempted burglary of my house, and my neighbours.

He's also put pleaded guilty to another burglary in which he sloppily left his prints.

They can't prove the other 40 or so offenses which have his name all over them!!

Any bets on how long he'll get? Bear in mind he has previous,

I'll kick off with 4 years

Don't hold your breath for that!

Those of us that work hard for all the stuff these toe rags rip off naturally feel some punishment involving firing squards or gallows.

But to our liberal judges you will have no doubt flaunted your wealth to a poor misfortunate that has obviously no other way of attaining such vital items as water, food, heat, satnavs and car stereos!

The poor soul will be seen as in urgent need of a sailing holiday and a forthnights rest at Centre Parks or, at worse a laughable fine they can't pay without robbing again!

Sounds like they'll already held their hands up for this, so will no doubt plea guilty, so the fine will only amount to two nights on the rob!

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

If he's got 2 previous convictions for domestic burglary, on a third conviction the court must impose a 3 year custodial sentence, unless there are mitigating circumstances. Details here:

https://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk..._web_final.pdf

Don't blame the judges for what you might think of as lenient sentences. Most of the time, their hands are tied by the sentencing guidelines. No doubt they occasionally get things wrong (as the Daily Mail likes to point out with monotonous regularity) but usually a sentence which looks absurdly lenient is explicable by mitigating factors that the judge is required to take account of.
