    TrackR Tracking Device

    What does everyone think about this ......

    TrackR bravo - find your lost items

    It's basically a small ( Coin sized ) battery powered device
    that is linked by Bluetooth to your Mobile Phone.

    How it works :

    Tired of losing your keys, wallet and phone?
    Attach the coin-sized TrackR bravo to any item
    and use the TrackR app to locate it in seconds.

    Ring your missing item or get a reminder
    to grab your item before leaving it behind.

    Lost your phone? Press the button on your TrackR bravo
    to ring your missing phone – even on silent!

    And if you're far away from your missing item,
    TrackR's Crowd Locate network will show you its last location on a map.

    That last line got me thinking that it could be VERY useful to attach to your Trophy !

    The "Crowd Locate Network" could be very useful for locating a stolen vehicle !

    It does rely on other TrackR users though, with their Smartphone running the App
    in the background so that they detect your TrackR device, and then report it's location
    to you through the TrackR Crowd Locate Network,
    but it seems that these are getting more and more popular,
    with consequently more and more Network coverage,
    and for the cost of them ( £24.99 for one - price decreases for multiple purchases )
    with ZERO ongoing fees, I think they could be quite useful !

    On the web site, you can find a representation of "coverage" in your area,
    and lots more information on this innovative product !

    As always I have absolutely no connection or affiliation to the TrackR company whatsoever.

    Very strange  :084:

    I've been thinking the very same thing these last few days but more along the lines of getting an old phone tucked away on the bike somewhere and plugged into a trickle charge switch.

    This item looks even better. :062:

    Are you thinking of trying one out?

    Just had a quick look on Ebay and find there's a huge array of trackers available :087:

    The problem with it I can see is that you are dependent on the tag being within range of someone with Bluetooth enabled, and the app installed to be updating location info that you can access.

    I already have a device that works by receiving GPS data and communicating over the Mobile Phone Network,
    but these are around 10 times the cost, and require an ongoing cost for use of the Mobile Network,
    although it does have the advantage of being able to be Hard wired,
    and has lots of features such as remote access, Geo-Fencing, Mivement alerts etc.

    The "TrackR" device has NO ongoing costs, but is limited by the number of other users in the vicinty.

    I guess none of our Members have tried one yet,
    so if I get one myself I'll provide a Review / update on it in due course.
