Tile are the leading Android trackers with a range of up to 120m. Similar to Apple Air Tags, long range location is dependent on others in close proximity to the device having the Tile app running on their phone.Thanks for the replies. I have heard that the apple Air tags are very good also. Dont have any Apple devices so like POC if anyone uses any Android device please post your opinion on it.
Btw. The most recent reviews on amazon UK does not sound is a good device for luggage tracking.Thanks for all the replies. Going to get the Tile pro 2 set for €60 they seem to be the best for android and have great reviews.
Have mate who works in the airport and the amount off missing luggage is unreal. Also some gone walkies.
You might have been luckier with another app user in close proximity to your tag after it arrived in Spain. In my case my tag didn't connect with any other user before it cane into range of my own phone in France and on return to Dublin. With only ~5 million downloads of the app worldwide that's not too surprising I guess.I got the pro myself, had the same issue. On the upside it did tell me that my luggage was in Spain when I arrived. They are not expensive so I was happy enough with that.
Identical experience a week ago. Mine was also inside the luggage.I used them recently too. On the outbound trip, my phone picked it up when I got onto the bus from the plane to the terminal. I was very relieved to know my bag was at my destination, especially as there was a very long delay before any baggage appeared at baggage reclaim.
On the return journey my phone only picked it up just before it appeared on the carousel.
I had the Tile Pro inside my luggage. I wasn't sure whether it was better to have it inside or outside.
