Slightly unrelated, when I bought my 2017 FFE a couple weeks ago the salesman warned me... while you can plug in your Home address in the favorites in the Nav system, he urged me not to do so. He's seen folks mugged before or overwhelmed by folks trying to mug them who get ahold of the keys, find the car, then thanks to the Nav system they know exactly where they live...
(while I don't use the Nav all that much, I'm assuming there's some form of history you can search anyhow and find this information regardless, but that would take your typical perpetrator more effort)

UMMMMM......couldn't they just take the registration out of the glove box and find out the same thing? :geek:

In Ohio, your home address is no longer listed on the Registration Copy that is left in the car.
Though, having a registration in the car in this day and age seems rather un-necessary; everything is available to law enforcement online.

Interesting....not the case in California where I live.

Michigan also requires the registration in the car--not because they don't have access but because they get $$ for a ticket if you don't.
