Luggage Tracker

Find + Track your lost luggage

If you are a frequent traveller lost luggage is almost an unavoidable hazard at some stage in your travel history.  In North America alone over 28 million pieces of luggage were lost last year.  There is now even a reality TV show, Baggage Battles where punters get rich off of traveller misfortune from unclaimed luggage.

A elegantly simple new product Trackdot gives frequent travellers a greater sense of security and control for just under $50 + activation and annual subscription @ $21. The palm-sized plastic device slips discreetly into your suitcase and updates the owner on its location via an app, SMS, email or the Trakdot website.  Trakdot relies on a quad-band GSM chip and triangulation, which allows it to last up to two weeks on a fresh pair of AA batteries ( included).

Yes it is FCC and FAA certified, when you fly Trakdot knows and goes to sleep. Upon arriving at your destination, Trakdot wakes up and reports its new location. Like Apples handy find my iPhone utility, you can track your lost bag via the an IOS or Android App or via the Trackdot website where you can set up customised text and email notifications or pin location via Google Maps.
