Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

Heading off this morning, my youngest son says "your Panda door is open a bit"

I look in, glove box open, sat nav missing.

My fault for leaving it unlocked!

Hopefully we'll nab the tosser as it always the same people who do this sort of thing and they are generally well known to the police.

The guy even went up to my front door to listen for activity inside. This happened yesterday at 18:30.

He tried my wife's Caravelle door on his way off, and then takes a look in the leaf. The cheeky flaming scrote.

I took this from my phone whilst reviewing the footage. I have the full files for the police.

take a look.


It'll be worth the loss of the satnav if they catch him. I would love that!!
Thanks triumph7 thanked for this post

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

I am very impressed with your camera set-up. He kindly left his paw-prints on the door frame, though I doubt the police will bother coming out to dust.


Brazen and thorough. Hope they get him.

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

I leave mine docked where we live. Probably shouldn't but it's very quiet.

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

I'm very impressed with the camera set up, I used to frequently forget to lock my car and in the summer my neighbour leaves the roof down on his Maserati grand cabrios over night, out the front. I leave the roof down on my golf all day if I'm not going anywhere so we're very lucky where we are. The last place I lived you were lucky every morning you came out with your windows intact

I fitted the cameras after a series of things going missing.
The pikeys once took the steel gates off their hinges and had those away.

Then I put a packed up washing machine by my garage door which I was going to turn the drum into a fire pit. No, nicked!!

The scrap collectors can have stuff I don't want, but they shouldn't walk 20m down my drive and just take it.
That's when I fitted the cameras.

Hopefully, they will prove worthwhile in catching this dick!

I was cooking at 6:30 yesterday. My wife could have opened the door to chuck stuff in the wheely bin at that time.
She is shaken up by the video I put up. Imaging if she'd opened the door to find a stranger rifling through the car!
That kind of thing can scare people for life.

I'm real angry about this!
Who does he think he is to come into my personal space and take what he wants.

No doubt if he does get caught he'll just have a slapped wrist.

I frequent a VW Transporter forum. A guy on there had his front bumper stolen from his van in broad daylight in a go outdoors car park.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...rd-camera.html

His dashcam clicked in with the banging around.
The thief was found through social media and arrested.
At court his punishment was to have his current community supervision order revoked, and a new 12 month one given instead.
No custodial even though he'd been up to this behavior for years with a string of convictions!

I also had a motorbike stolen. The thief who took it said he had stopped someone else getting away with it, and was returning it to me. I attended court to say "NO, he was not returning the bike" and the court decided that there may be some truth in it so acquitted him!
WTF!!

Sorry for the rant, but cut off a finger every time they get caught and they'd soon get the message. Oh wait, that won't work as they'll then claim incapacity benefit and we'll all be paying for them forever!

The cameras are great. They are IP ones and I can monitor them, playback etc from anywhere I can get data. Last holiday I was abroad checking the weather at home through them using my phone

The last time I used the Fiat was Friday. I most probably came in laden down with all sorts, and then just forgot to lock it.
I suppose I should count myself lucky. I once couldn't find the Caravelle keys. After searching for 20 mins I found them in the ignition from 2 days ago! My friend was not so lucky. He's a carpenter, had a brand new £25k Transporter, went back inside a house to get some more of his tools after he had been loading, came out, van gone. The insurers wouldn't pay up as he'd left the keys in it. He's still paying for that van 3 years on.

Lesson learned

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

No different over here, mandatory sentences are what's needed. Burglary 5 years - see you in 2021, Aggravated burglary 10 years - see you in 2026! That would soon stop it. The problem with the pikeys over here is you'll wake up to a can of paint dripping off your car if you press charges. I had my garage where I keep my classic spider broken in to last year, thankfully no damage as they were looking for garden power tools which they dident get but the sense of invasion is extremely irritating, naturally the police did SFA.

My wife is worrying over this. She wonders if we'll get another visit if he does get caught for it.



Well, at least a little can be done.

Since the blue&me 2 has a sim card in it, they can block any services.
I've called tomtom, and they will block it. They can't/won't disable the device like they can with a mobile phone though.

It's a shame that they wont use it to catch whoever uses it next. The satnav reports where it is for traffic reasons all the time via the vodafone network.

There's no chance the police would commit resources to do such a thing though.

No, it's just the bluetooth that you pair,, just like a phone.
You can pair to any other car with it.
The Fiat blue and me unit will even put up the right picture of the correct model car once paired.
Mine was never spot on though as it showed a picture of and old jalopy in my car.

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

Oh, I'd better start taking mine out then. Mind you its been playing up recently. Every morning it starts up with a TomTom drum beat followed by a screen full of tiny writing......pressing and holding the off button on the top of the unit eventually persuades it to behave. Annoying tho.... TomTom just advise a full restore, which I did to no effect.....

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

That's justification for home use of Claymore mines if I ever saw one. An oxygen thief of the first order😡

What make are they? Looking to get some ip cameras as part of a home automation set up I'm building up at the moment, I'm very impressed with the quality especially in the low light.

My brother owns a camper conversion company (mostly VW t4 and t5) and has replaced several bumpers and exhausts on vans that have been stolen. He has a lot of his own vans and has to be very careful where the keys are kept and how the vans are secured. He's not allowed to leave anything out of his workshop overnight in the carpark as per the terms of his insurance.

They are Hikvision. The garden camera is a Bullet 3mp.

The one on the garage is a mini dome 3mp. That one does audio too and wifi, but i'd not use wifi myself for this application. It also has a micro sd slot inside.

A few years ago you'd be looking at £500 each for those, but now they've dramatically dropped. I paid £100 for the dome, and £75 for the bullet, via Ebay direct from China.

The daytime image is great. Really clear and captures number plates very easily. The exposure is too long at night to catch moving number plates.

Here's the full file from my drive. It looks a little better locally as youtube compress everything.
For some reason the audio is muted on youtube, but my local file has that.


I have both Cameras connected to a QNAP nas which handles the surveillance program. It's not bad, and can cope with up to 32 cameras from what I remember. Going further than two cameras doesn't make sense though as they charge you for a license for each and every camera over two.
you would be better off with a dedicated nvr like this one
The cameras are power over ethernet, so just one cable to run. I have a poe 8 port switch which my 2 run in to, then that connects to the NAS.

Both cameras are able to handle 2048 ◊ 1536, but I set set to 1080p to achieve a higher 25fps vs 15fps. A 2 Terebyte HD stores around 16 days from two cameras

It's all really simple to set up, anyone can do it.
