Exclamation I have removed my google map location

It is relatively simple to read this forum and find out when a member is out of town, vacation, wheelin in another state etc. Bad guys can use this information and pinpoint your home with the google maps feature. They could case your joint by verifying the FJ in the driveway. It's easy to figure what harm could come of this:

Your reporting about your b!tchin wheelin adventure in MOAB, while they are CLEANING OUT YOUR HOUSE!!!...


My suggestion is, if you put your location on the Google map, use your city's town hall, or a shopping center, NOT your house!

(I haven't experienced any problem, just figured this out.)

Re: I have removed my google map location

Hard to tell when it's in a garage or not. Mean dogs help too lol. Besides, my location is to your left here

It's a needle in a haystack I would think.
