When taking international flights, one of my biggest peeves and fears is losing my luggage… or more specifically the airline losing my luggage. According to SITA, nearly 26 million bags go missing each year from airports around the world. To try and counteract this, Trakdot.com has developed the Trakdot LuggageTM tracker.
The Trakdot luggage tracker is simply slipped into your luggage and then allows the luggage to be tracked from any mobile, Apple, Android or SMS enabled device or even from the Trakdot website. The Trakdot uses a quad-band GSM chip and triangulation instead of battery draining GPS, which allows it to last up to two weeks on a fresh pair of AAs.
