They told me I can fill out a police report online, and they don't send cops over for minor things such as this as they have bigger fish to fry here
True Dat !!

One of the times my car was broken into, a cop came out to do a police report. I didn't touch anything, as handprints were all over everything. I had washed my car the day before so I knew they weren't mine. When I told the cop they could lift prints, he just smiled at me and said, "The only time we lift prints on a car is when a homicide was commited. This is real life, not TV." He didn't say it snotty, he just said it matter-of-factly.

Sucks walking out to your car and see its been broken in to. Been there more times than I care to think about. Got to the point where I'd just clean up and go to work....

The actual 4.3" nav unit on the Pioneer AVIC-U310BT is removable, but the rest of the faceplate is permanent.

Yep, I heard that. I also heard that it does not contain the GPS antenna, so it is sort of useless w/o the rest of the deck, but I think by taking it with me at least it'll be a bit of a deterrent to people who want to get into my car again . . . and i won't have any more "Hey everyone I have GPS in my glovebox" marks on my windshield.

Must be a stupid crook, anyone smart (no punt intended) would have broken into anyone's car.
