It does not really matter whether you do a whole lot of traveling, or you just pack your suitcase once a year for the annual company trip – either way, the moment your luggage gets out from your home, there is always a risk of your luggage going missing, or being rerouted to somewhere else. I suppose necessity being the mother of invention holds true, which is why the Trakdot Luggage tracker was born – or rather, brought into existence.
The SITA claims that nearly 26 million bags actually go missing each year from airports all over this big blue globe that we live in. Well, you need not let that statistic spoil your upcoming journey, as travelers who are deeply concerned about the safety of valuables are now able to enjoy a simple, affordable luggage tracking solution from Trakdot. Basically, the Trakdot Luggage tracker is tiny enough to fit into a checked bag, where it will get to work reporting city location in real time just about to any mobile, Apple, Android, or SMS capable devices. Nice to know that the lowest common denominator is served here, meaning there is no need to own a smartphone just to make use of the Trakdot.
The Trakdot Luggage tracker was specially built for travel convenience, as it comes in the form of a palm-sized tracker which is extremely light, and will fit nicely into just about any size bag. The luggage locator system itself is capable of delivering city-specific information on the whereabouts of checked baggage in real time. In the rather unfortunate event of the Trakdot protected bag arriving somewhere else, at least you know just which city is it “parked” at, so there is no need to fret.
The Trakdot Luggage tracker will arrive in the mass market from March this year at $49.95 a pop, where it is accompanied by an activation fee of $8.99 and an annual service fee of $12.99.
