Although forgotten in many investigations, GPS navigation devices such as TomTom, Navman, Garmin and Mio, can be a valuable source of information.
Not only entered addresses can be found, but sometimes complete trip logs.
Besides that these devices often have the ability to connect to mobile phones.
This will sometimes give investigators valuable phone data stored in these GPS devices.

Click on the submenu items under “GPS” to get an impression of the possibilitys.

TomTom trip logs are less common, but the most valuable. If trip logs are found with a date and time stamp of interest, you can very accurately see where a Tom Tom was about every 3 seconds of the trip.

For example, click on the “TomTom Triplog” menu-item for a summary of a detailed trip log file.

Within private investigations, it happens that a beacon is placed in a vehicle to see where a “suspect” is going.
Data extracted from a GPS device, sometimes works as retroactively place a beacon.
Following a suspect obviously can not be done afterwards, but the data of a GPS Device can sometimes give welcome information.
Especially when the TomTom creates trip log data.

We can change a TomTom is such a way that it starts collecting triplogs.
