Remember those big, clunky club locks you see in old cars with no central locking? The long steel bars that lock into the steering wheel? Aussie company Who-Rae Australia has brought this same concept to GPS devices.

Since sat navs are the latest targets for thieves, Who-Rae has produced the Maplock device, which won the Popular Mechanic's Editor's Choice award at the SEMA car show last year. The lock fits diagonally over your GPS, and is then secured to the steering wheel via a steel cable. So thieves will either take your steering wheel and your GPS, or just won't bother at all. If you value your GPS that much, you can pick up a Maplock for just US$50.
