Here are some of the problems you need to overcome to use this thing.
1. The instructions for the setup are poorly written and do match what really needs to happens.
2. The lights flash different colors at different times but no clear instructions on what they mean.
3. Turning it on and off is not just a simple push of a button. There is a special sequence you have to follow of time and light flashes. Why do they make it difficult and have to return to the instructions? Oh, I forgot, it is not in the little single sheet that came with it, it is on the web somewhere of how to do it.
4. Once you get it setup, there is no way to test it to see if it will indeed send a text to your cellphone.
5. Batteries are said to last 48 hours. They don't! On a flight from the U.S. to Italy with a stop over in Germany, the Trakdot worked the first leg and reported the landing in Germany and the batteries were at 38%. For the second leg from Germany to Italy, no response from Trakdot when we landed. Most likely dead batteries. Battery life I would guess to be about 20 hours. Good enough for domestic travel but not international.

Trakdot would be cool if it worked but in it's current form it is just a pain to use.

Update:
Tried it again on the return trip to the U.S. Theis time no report from Trakdot when changing planes in Germany. It did report the arrival in the U.S. but not until after we had already picked up our bags and was in the parking lot walking to our car. So much for using the app to find your bag on the belt! Battery was at 15%, less than 20 hours of use. In it's present form, Trackdot is not reliable and can not be depended on, basically does not work as advertised. If the bag had been left on departure, there is no way to know where it is since you can not ping it to send out a text. Don't waste your time and money on this device until the problems are worked out.

***UPDATE July 2015 at bottom of review***

I have waited a while to write this review. This has been for a number of reasons as you will soon see.

I ordered 3 TrakDots initially. All were shipped and sent promptly. I then waited a few months before activating them as I didn't travel during that time and I didn't want to use up any of the subscription time. When I activated the devices, 2 were fine and 1 would not connect to a GSM network - the light remained red. I immediately contacted TrakDot and then also forwarded my problem to Harry Steck the CEO - the reason for this was that I needed the TrakDot working before I went away, which was less than a week away. An impressively fast and courteous reply was received from Harry who said he would get things sorted for me but unfortunately I would need a replacement as the unit was defective. TrakDot (the company) were brilliant in all this and managed to get a replacement unit sent from a supplier in New Zealand to Hong Kong at no extra cost to me and super fast. I was delighted and it activated with no problems.

Our trip has been a bit of an epic. Hong Kong to London, then straight to Iceland followed by a return to London. Then a trip to Switzerland and return to Hong Kong, via London. As we were about to leave Hong Kong, I put in fresh branded (Duracell) batteries, mindful of negative reviews relating to battery life. We switched them on just as we checked in to ensure we maintained as much life as possible. We immediately got emails and SMS texts confirming that they were in Hong Kong and the battery life was full!

On arrival at Heathrow I turned on my phone. Just after de-boarding we each received emails and SMS's confirming the 3 bags were in Heathrow! Great stuff!

Great idea but...the battery life is less than 20 hours (no where near 48 hours as claimed) making it completely useless for international travel. It will stop working when you really need it the most (when your bag is lost and sent to another location).

I bought two trakdot. I really thought the trakdot was a brilliant idea. On 6 December 2014 I made a trip from NY (JFK).to Rome. I activated my upgraded Trakdot (as explained). Put it on and in slip in my suitcase. I downloaded the app for IOS (BTW very bad app, its only a link to the website so you have to logon all the time). When it was on I look on my Iphone the location of the trakdot. was in LaGuardia Airport (LGA) and I was in Manhattan ! Anyway, I went to JFK took my flight to Rome. After landing in Rome I opened my phone and nothing...Opened the app (log in) and located my Trakdot, it was still in La Guardia…My suitcase arrived normally in Rome with the Trakdot on…No message, no SMS, location wrong…
Basically its not working at all and for me it’s a total waste of money. You need several months or years of development before achieving something working. Why not a rechargeable battery, you have to put new set of battery for each use ? really ? On top, the device is not working (at least my two devices). I really want to know if there is a possibility to be reimburse for my two trakdot. I should say I am very disappointed ! I contacted the Trakdot support one week ago, still no news…So posted on FB, they asked me my email address (still no result). Please avoid at all cost until they solve their problems.
