Trakdot Luggage™ is designed to provide airport-specific location information for your checked luggage. Trakdot™ Luggage is constantly monitoring the cellular network to determine its city location. When you fly, Trakdot™ Luggage knows and goes to sleep. Upon arriving at your destination, Trakdot™ Luggage wakes up and reports its new location. Depending on your preferences, a text-message or email is sent to you confirming that your luggage has arrived with you.

When you fly, Trakdot’s artificial intelligence shuts off its transmit-and-receive capability and enters “airplane mode” by employing solid-state accelerometer technologies that sense the sustained acceleration of an airplane during taxi and/or the approximate first third of takeoff roll. Trakdot™ is in airplane mode or “sleep mode” well before the aircraft is airborne. The same accelerometer technologies used to put Trakdot™ in sleep mode before aircraft flight also sense the sustained deceleration of the aircraft as the pilot uses brakes and thrust reversers on the ground to rapidly slow the aircraft after it touches-down. When Trakdot™ is “re-awakened” on the ground, it finds and employs the local cellular network to contact the Trakdot™ owner and report its position.

Features:

  • Tracks your luggage anywhere in the world
  • Notifications to your phone or track online
  • Works anywhere your mobile phone does and can be linked to multiple cell phones
  • Completely international, and works wherever a cellular network exists
  • Small and ultra lightweight - travel essential

Performed as promised, I was a little skeptical at first and I was pleasantly surprised. I would suggest this device to anyone who travels and checks in luggage. Also the 3G staff were excellent folks with whom to work. Thank you.

Trakdot works as advertised. I've used it for domestic US and international in Europe with good results. Battery life is good.

Greatest travel item

Date Added: 03/25/2015 by Alison W. (Aptos, CA)
I bought my first Trakdot last year for an international trip, and I was so impressed with its accuracy and consistency, I bought a 2nd one for my recent international trip, with the same perfect results. Now, I don't worry at all when my luggage is the last to arrive on the conveyor belt (which it usually is), because I already know it's in that airport. And, if my luggage is ever lost, I can now tell the airline which airport it's in (surprisingly I know of several lost luggage situations where the airline did not know where the passenger's luggage was for days!). I've been recommending Trakdot to all my fellow travelers!

Great product but batteries could do with lasting longer - one long haul trip and they were running out, but love the fact i can trace my case!

Bought these last year. I don't use them for quick trips where I don't check luggage. On the 3 trips I had where I did check luggage, these things work perfectly. Airlines haven't lost my luggage yet - but when they do, I will know where my luggage is. I also like the bluetooth feature when I am waiting for the luggage, I know the luggage is near before the belt starts spinning.

During all the snow in NYC my luggage wound up on a different plane than me to Houston. I landed in Houston knowing my luggage had gone to Charlotte, NC. I live 2 hours from the airport. I filed a baggage claim and was about to walk away from them, knowing it would be at least the next day before I saw my luggage. As I was walking out my Trakdots (Scout 1 and 2) reported in to me via text and email that they had just arrived at the same airport. I went back to baggage claim and we found out my luggage was at another terminal, so I went there and collected it at baggage claim. If I hadn't had my Trakdot scouts working for me I wouldn't have gotten my suitcases until maybe the next day, and I do shows with props I keep in my cases and needed those desperately! Trakdot gave me not only peace of mind knowing where my luggage was, but saved me and baggage claim a rather long and drawn out delivery process! Thanks Trakdot! I talk about you on facebook all the time and I believe some of my friends have bought Trakdots for themselves due to my posts!

Customer service from Victor 3Gstore was below substandard.

3Gstore Comments:
Hello, in researching your complaint, looks like you received the item on time from us and had some issues registering the product on 3/26/14 @ 10:24am. TrakDot company had some problems with registering new devices for a few hours and we called back less then 2 hours later on the same day and informed you that you had registered your device successfully and that we spoke to the makers of TrakDot and they were able to give you an additional ONE year of service for NO CHARGE for your inconvenience. Once a TrakDot is activated online, it is no longer returnable as clearly stated on the product page, on the email you receive and the checkbox that you check when placing the order. If the product is indeed defective the makers of TrakDot will replace your device at no charge.

Questions & Answers

How many days does it transmit on a fresh set of batteries?
Is this the latest version of the device? I understand the early batches were buggy, and Trakdot had all of them recalled/exchanged in Nov 2013. Thanks!
If the device winds up somewhere other than an airport (eg. someone elses home address), will the device show his location? Does it display GPS coordinates and/or the nearest local street address? Can I request positions on demand from the device?
The video indicates that the Luggage Tracker uses Bluetooth (for proximity sensing at the end of the trip), but there's no indication of this in the technical requirements. Which (minimum) version of Bluetooth is required?
