Traveling is always stressful, especially when you worry that you might lose your luggage. With so many bags heading in and out of the airport, one of them is bound to get lost. Right?
It rarely happens. But when it does, it's a total nightmare. Few things are worse than being stranded someplace without your toothbrush, clothing and a clean pair of underwear.
If you always want to know exactly where your bag is, we recommend the Trakdot Luggage Tracker app. The app is paired with a device that goes in your luggage, and uses GPS to track its location.
The Trakdot device uses micro-electronics and ground-based cellular telephone technologies to report the position of your luggage. It also has a built-in sensor that automatically puts the device into "airplane mode" when the plane takes off, and shifts it back into "normal" mode when the plane lands.
In the event that your luggage is lost, you can use the app to find out where it is. This information will help airport staff locate the bags and make arrangements to return them.
You can also use the app to monitor your luggage as it's transported from the plane to baggage claim. This means, while everyone else waits anxiously for that conveyer belt to start moving, you can swing by Starbucks for a coffee. When your bags are on the go, you'll know that it's finally time to head down.
