Default Rash of Stolen Gps units Fort Myers Beach

Crooks got my 7616 s as well as others this week from Fish Tail Marina canal area. Be on the lookout for ebay sales.

There is a pepper spray and noise alarm that might help to prevent this.I was approached by the pepper spray manufacturer to see if this would be of any use in a boat.I will have some info shortly.

Not sure how practical this is for some here but I had my GPS mount modified a bit to have it held in with velcro. At the end of the day I just pulled it out, unplugged and done...took less than 10 seconds and never had to worry about the GPS getting stolen again.

Scumbags can't steal what's not there.

The pepper spray I have seen is for inside your gun room. Brilliant idea but I don't know how well it would work on a boat with air circulation. Might clear them for a few minutes?
