Having read about those luggage tracking tags I am curious how other people are satisfied with them.
I was not going to pay big bucks for the "Apple" tags and by doing a bit of research found the Eufry Smarttrack Link tags were getting pretty good reviews and the cost is way less than the Apple type.They use the Apple FIND MY app.
Has anyone here have any experience with the EUFRY Smarttrack Link units?
They don't work with android
should have said I use iCrap phones
I don't have the Eufy but I've done some research. The product gets mixed reviews on youtube:
Although pricier, at this point, the Apple Air Tags appear to me a better choice.
See the content at https://www.travelandleisure.com/best-luggage-trackers-and-s.... The best by their tests is the Tile Pro Powerful Bluetooth Tracker. It works with Android or iOS. However, it is pricy, which was one of your considerations.
John from PA, this is just a toy so to speak. In all my travels over several decades I've only ever had my luggage delayed twice and then it was delivered to me by taxi.
"one person's 'toy' is another person's 'tool'... OR NOT!??"
I bought a Tracki device (https://tracki.com/products/tracki-gps-tracker) earlier this year. I have an Android smartphone. I add it to my checked luggage when I'm including a "properly packed" firearm. It's worked for me so far. Purchase price was "affordable"; on-going fees (to provide service) are something you have to deal with. Your mileage may vary.
This is helpful info.
Like you, and after traveling domestically and internationally for 50+ years, I’ve only had stuff delayed, not lost, and only on a few occasions. Hmmm, both were Italy!
By the way, AirTags can also be rented for as little as $5/monthly for a 4-pack. See https://www.grover.com/us-en/products/apple-accessories-appl...
Which tags work with Android. I will never have an iPhone or iPad.
Look at my earlier reply to this thread.
I spent time looking at these "tags" but never bought one. As it turns out most of our travels now are on either American or Delta Airlines and both of their phone apps have a "where's my bag" feature that lets you know where your luggage is in the airport or if it is on your on your plane. A great relief and free with your airline ticket and app. Not sure about other airlines but probably not just a feature of the 2 we use.
I placed one of AirTag in the pouch where I keep passport with. In case stolen, there is a good chance I can still find it in on of million trash cans at a street corner,
I just flew on AA this past Tuesday and inquired about the use of AirTags. Although I was advised about the information you mention, I was also advised that the information from “where’s my bag” only supplies a location at the last point of scan. It does not provide a “live” location of the checked article like an AirTag or similar device.
As a point of interest, American Airlines and Republic Airlines almost share the honor of most lost bags, at least as of the end of 2022. American lost 850 bags out of 100,000 and Republic lost 930 out of 100,000. In both cases that is nearing 1% loss rate.
As it turns out most of our travels now are on either American or Delta Airlines and both of their phone apps have a "where's my bag" feature that lets you know where your luggage is in the airport or if it is on your on your plane.
United Airlines has something similar.
From my trip to the Middle East and found that the luggage tags worked quite well. Nice to see your luggage on the same plane as yourself and even see their travel to the plane to be loaded.
So in my opinion the much cheaper units l have compared to the Apple units worked as well since they use the same technology ( Find my)!
