    Default tom tom stolen



    well yesterday i had a cum bag scally of a lad on a push bike steal my
    own top spec personal tom tom 700 from the cab of the truck,it happened in
    stockport the sk5 6** area and think its called reddish,the central locking on the
    truck worked but the drivers side door didnt lock but the alarm went off and soon
    after i looked out the back and seen this scum bag jump on his bike and pedal like hell
    ,luckily for him as if i`d caught up with him then i`d of kicked him off his bike and he would
    of met the steel toe cap of me boot to his face,he did drop the head unit mounting port on
    the floor and left the cable in the cab,we were told about the risk in leaving it in the cab but
    this wasnt noticeable from the outside as it was hidden behind me tool box but must of tried
    his look and follow the cable down and he won, hopefuly i`ll get it replaced by comet as it wasnt
    my fault,also that the truck we were in has now gone for repair for the door to be fixed,bit late i
    must say considering its been reported many of times about the door not locking properly

    Bummer!! I hope Comet pay up m8, considering the problem with the driver's door not locking has been reported a few times.

    I hate these sort of people why can,t they leave things alone. I would have thought that comet should replace the stolen TomTom as it was their resposibility to give you a "secure" verhcal, and and you did notify them of the faulty door lock. Their insurance would no doubt pay up, but they might give you one off their shelf.

    That's a real pain, and a bit weird. Why? while I'm reading this, the guy who sits next to me is on the phone to the insurance company, reporting his tomTom stolen from his car outside his house.

    Andy, did you fill out Defect report's, as without them there is no written proof of the door not locking, and companies like Comet will use that as their Get Out clause.

    Soory to hear of it getting stolen mate, i would be right hacked off if mine got nicked too!

    yes m8 we have to do a vehicle check sheet that we have to fill in every
    morning and the same fault is on the forms going back few weeks and also
    comet are aware of the faulty door and they agree in wots happened as its
    the fleet company is to blame as they shud of took the truck off the road
    till fixed so think i have a good chance in getting a replacement.

    Sorry to hear about your tomtom m8 you may want to check with comets insurance company as my ins company does sat nav cover free of charge now. Also make sure you report it to the police and get a crime number for the ins company.


    Hope you get it replaced soon
