In which case an opportunist thief could have taken your sat nav, it seems unlikely to me that the guy helping you would have taken it, I could be wrong but lets face it he is there everyday easy to trace and knows it.
So why not go back to the store and ask if they have surveillance in the car park that covered where your car was? It may show who the culprit is.
You could be correct, I hope you are.... It's not quite as likely as may seem though, I wasn't in a store-it was a multistory car park but a well-lit one and was 7pm by the time I got home, so quite late on. Three car-parking attendants and I didn't see anybody else the whole time I was there.

It would be awful to accuse him without proof and be wrong and he probably saved you having your insurance go up for the next few years.
No snickering, just bad luck, happens to all of us.

Edit- Just realised Less beat me to it and he's come up with a good idea.
I do hope you're right-that sits much better with me than does the reasoning that this man who was helping me, was actually not.

I do need to get a spare set. And to get into the habit of leaving them in the lock if I open the boot with my daft wolf in the car!!

Lifes lessons always come at a cost. If you don't get the satnav back, that will be the cost...but I bet you don't do it again.
Spare keys are a great idea too MTC.
I'll get somebody to get me one for xmas.

Thanks for the replies everybody!!!
Life is 10% what happens to you-and 90% your reaction to it.
