In today’s world a GPS device has become a standard purchase for household vehicles. They’re great! The days of road maps, printing unclear directions off the internet, or just hoping landmarks and hand written directions can get you where you need to go are inconveniences of the past; for those who chose to own a GPS. Something we don’t always think about is how much personal information we leave saved in these mini computers – for example, your full address saved under “Home” sitting right next to your garage door opener. In the thieves’ mind they’ve got an entrance way into your home, directions on how to get there and a quick $100 after they sell the electronic. Here are a few tips on how to enjoy your GPS device but be still be smart about it:
1) Take the GPS with you when you leave your vehicle – easy as that!
2) Lock it up in your glove compartment or somewhere else secure in your vehicle.
3) Do not leave the GPS on its mount and do not leave the mount up. The most reassuring thing that there is a GPS in a vehicle other than being able to physically see it, is to see a mount left on the window.
4) Not only should you remove the mount, but wipe those smudges off your window the mount leaves!
5) Do not leave your home address in the “Home” setting within the device. Also, If you keep your garage door opener in your vehicle, it would be a good idea to not use another address on your street as “Home”. They can easily identify which house on your street is yours by the click of a button! (The one to your garage door)
6) Lastly, you could go as far as programming your local police station address into the “Home” setting as an extra warning to thieves. I’m sure you’d love to see their face as they pull up to a police station!
Stay safe, be smart, and be proactive! Hope these tips help keep you on your anti-theft toes! It’s surprising how many things in this busy world that seem common sense that we fail to think of without a reminder here or there. So keep your Garmin, Magellan, TomTom or whatever your GPS of choice is – YOUR best friend, not a thieves’!

A recent article in USA Today compared car owners with their late-night TV show of choice. They teamed up and created a poll with Penn Schoen Berland, market research and consulting firm, to showcase the demographics of viewers and their cars.
According to the results of the poll fans of Conan O’Brien are most likely to be between the ages of 18 and 34 year old and drive Volkswagens. Those who prefer to watch Jay Leno are typically age 45 or older and lean toward domestics, especially Pontiac and Chevrolets.
Change the channel to watch David Letterman and you are likely somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 to 44 years old, and cruising around in a Toyota. Lastly, people who prefer to get their news and entertainment from Jon Stewart fall between the ages of 35-54 and favor GMC trucks.

On October 24th, MileOne Automotive employees, friends and family in Maryland joined together to participate in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Baltimore. MileOne Automotive is a long-time participant in the event and look forward to this day each fall.
The weather and turn-out were both great for this year’s event. Team members met at our Flagship Sponsor tent in a park at the Harry and Jeannetta Weinberg YMCA Center in Baltimore. Before the walk began, team members enjoyed light refreshments, turned in their last-minute donations and got ready for the event to begin!
Jerry Fader, President of MileOne Automotive, spoke to all walkers at this year’s Making Strides event before the beginning of the walk. He addressed the importance of fundraising and the impact that The American Cancer Society has in all of our lives. After the speech, there was a quick MileOne team photo taken then everyone headed to the start line.
The walk took place on a scenic, 4-mile course throughout the Mayfield neighborhood of Baltimore. Part of the walk included a trip around Lake Montebello. American Cancer Society volunteers, neighbors and even some cheerleaders encouraged walkers along the way. Everyone ended the walk under a huge pink balloon arch, welcoming them back to the event’s main area. Music, snacks and water were on-hand for all participants.
Overall, the event was successful for MileOne and The American Cancer Society, further strengthening the partnership between the two organizations. Throughout the Making Strides season, MileOne employees helped to raise thousands of dollars, as they do each year, to benefit the ACS. This event each year is a great celebration for all participants to recognize strength, volunteerism and community.
