My Nuvi 1690 has an option to input a PIN at boot-up.
My Nuvi 3598 has no such option.
A while back (2-3 Years?) I seem to remember some senior Garmin exec boasting that Garmin units come with a PIN option.
Looks like they have given up this option....

They gave up on it as it is so easy to defeat ...

The petition mentions Tom Tom unit was stolen. Does this mean that the petition should only be answered by Tom Tom owners?
I have a Garmin but agree with the points mentioned.
