Top customer reviews
So, it does work. A few things to clarify though.
1. Everyone in these reviews is using the term GPS. To be clear, this device does NOT use GPS. It uses triangulation from cell towers, which is an advantage in that it doesn't need line-of-sight to the sky (thus it will work inside a plane's cargo hold or even underground in the baggage handling systems of an airport) - but the location given is NOT as accurate as GPS. You'll get a general vicinity - not an exact pinpoint location.
2. The Bluetooth function is fundamentally broken. It looks like it can work, but something isn't set up right. It unpairs itself after each startup it seems - or even after a certain amount of time. If you want proximity tracking, forget this. Get a $20 Tile or TrackR instead and throw it in your bag.
3. The app for it is poor and clunky - but it does work. The timezone issue is ridiculous. It looks like they attempted to fix it and get it off GMT, but now I'm still off by an hour (in the wrong direction) due to DST. There's no excuse for this - but this is what happens when you outsource all your technology overseas and your local people are just "ideas people". This device suffers from the entrepreneurial failing in believing they don't need to understand the technology. Shame on them; a little tech polishing and this thing could be great.
4. The complaints people are having about the power button are just plain bizarre. No, it's not as simple as an on/off switch - but it's really not that complicated. Yes, it's easy to tell if it's on. I'm not sure what everyone's getting so bent about. It's easy - Hold down the button, you'll get a red light. This means it's starting up. It'll then turn green when it gets a cell signal - then the light will turn off to save battery. To check if it's on, Press the button quickly - if you get a green light, it's on. Period. Nothing ambiguous about it. If you click the button and nothing happens, it's off. To turn if off, hold down the button until the light stops blinking.
Overall, I'll keep using it - solely for its intended purpose. I also have a set of Tiles and I keep one in the bag with this. I travel weekly, so it can be a lifesaver - and it appears to work as tested in my first trip today. I literally activated it in the airport parking lot via my iPhone about 30 minutes after receiving it and threw it in my bag. (Dulles to Boston - notified me of my bag being in the vicinity of both airports.)
I will be taking it again this weekend - Dulles to Denver to Las Vegas and back - and will update how well it works.
I thought the battery died so I removed the old and put new fresh batteries, Trakdot does not turn on or locate.
Now I need it for my Sunday's trip and will not have it.
Update 10/01/16 :
After fiddling with the thing, it turned on and off and was able to find its location, still I don't trust it will continue working on my trips as it seems to eat the batteries too fast.
I took it to North California and it was constantly updating my location, so it works at least in America.
Changed my rating from 1 to 3 stars, the company contacted me, explaining that I need a different SIM for overseas, they mailed a new SIM that I installed with no problems, now it seems to work, I will try it in the US in the next weeks and Internationally in December.
