    You have a very good point. Anyone can potentially see where you live and where your car is parked by zooming down to street level. If they search further they'll know what mods you have (and your lifestyle). Thieves want to know everything about their target victim.

    You might want to post this in the Site Suggestion section to see what the admin/mods make of this. I reckon this is pretty serious.

    Which is why I've not put my details on it, but it's been notified to the forum admin.

    Thats why you don't put the exact location you live in. At the end of the day you are on a public forum, publicly submitting information about yourself on a daily basis. It's been there since the last revamp ( a few years) and and no one has been stalked using it as far as i am aware

    This is so true,if given time I'm sure I could find a few peeps locations and also you drive the car in public to and from home so the same applies.
    I agree with Byzan and cannot see the problem

    As Byzan A4, voorhees and others have suggested:

    1) You don't HAVE to put your details into it - you're not on it unless YOU go to the page and place a pin.
    2) YOU'RE daft if you put the pin RIGHT on the address your car is regularly parked.
    3) It's been there a few years, and to our knowledge there's been no ill effect, and we presumed that was because points one and two above had bases covered...

    Regards,

    Rob.
