The location function of the mobile phone is an invention that undoubtedly makes our lives easier. To trace routes and routes on the map and get where you want without getting lost, to find good restaurants near you, to keep track of your best friend who has gone out on a blind date and has shared her location with you...
In addition to all this, geolocation is postulated as a lifesaver during vacation times. Because one of the issues that stresses us the most on a trip is making sure that our luggage arrives with us at the destination. Losing our suitcase, backpack or surfboard would make our getaway bitter.
If the airline was responsible for this loss, with a claim it is likely that you will recover your belongings sooner or later. However, the task is complicated if it was you who forgot your backpack on the train, on the beach or at the bus stop. Luckily, there are tracking devices that will give you extra security to find all your luggage.
In the market we find different options of location devices, all of them with a very similar operation. They are generally very small in size so they won't be bulky or heavy and can easily be attached to any object. Its battery is usually long-lasting and, as a general rule, they are resistant to water.
Depending on the brand chosen, some only work via Bluetooth at a safe distance from your mobile phone. Others use the Bluetooth connections of nearby terminals to broadcast the location signal to your device. Instead, others work with a separate SIM card that communicates with your smartphone.
Likewise, depending on the one you select, you must register it in a specific application or in one already installed by default in your terminal if you choose the device of the same brand as your phone. There are some more sophisticated locators that also require a paid subscription.
You can usually customize the device ID, so you'll know which one corresponds to a certain object if you have several. You will be able to open the application in question and see where your luggage is at all times. Plus, many come with an audible alert to let you know when it's close, as well as receiving a notification letting you know you've strayed too far, so you know you forgot in time to go back and retrieve it.
It is a method of great help for your peace of mind this vacation, being able to control the location of your suitcase, backpack, bag, laptop, bicycle, surfboard, baby carriage or any package that travels with you. Apart from this, they are also useful in your day to day to locate your keys or, for example, find your pet if it gets lost or runs away.
