GPS. We all have one (well, except my mom, who still prints out Google Maps), especially up here in the DC area. Whether it's integrated in your car, you have a portable Garmin or TomTom, or use your iPhone/Droid, most of us use our GPS system around town. And most of us have a "HOME" address saved.
You should NEVER use your actual address as the "HOME" saved location. If a thief steals your keys, and jumps in the car, turns the GPS on and pushes home, it'll take him straight to your HOUSE! And, most likely your car key and house key are on the same keychain, so now he's sitting at your door, with your house keys, and knows you're not home.
I have my "home" address set as a major intersection just down the street from my neighborhood. I usually only use the home button when I'm downtown anyway, just to get me going towards northern Virginia, then I know the rest of the way - so there's no need to have my exact address programed in.
Please - today - change your "home" address in your car, your husband's car, your parents' cars - to a public place or major intersection. You don't want to give a bad guy turn by turn directions to your house!
