Welcome to Neighbourhood Watch In Spain
Most importantly DO NOT PUT YOUR EXACT HOME OR HOLIDAY ADDRESS into the device i.e. house number and road name
for example. If you do happen to have your Sat Nav stolen from your car or person all the thief has to do is switch it on, go to home address, he is guided there and he knows you are not in! If you are unsure how to get back home, especially if you are renting a property for a holiday, put in an address close by such as a restaurant or the Police Station etc. Do not programme in someone elses home address for obvious reasons.
