Trakdot is now taking pre-orders for the Trakdot Lugage device. Created by GlobaTrac, fits into a checked bag, and reports city/airport location in real time to any cellular telephone. Those early adopters who place an order on Trakdot.com before April 27, 2013 will have their activation fee waived and will be among the first to receive the device.
Trakdot Luggage was designed to provide peace of mind over one’s valuables and take the stress out of travel. Once the tracker is registered, turned on, and placed in a piece of luggage, the technology takes over the rest of the work. Rather than utilizing GPS technology, Trakdot operates on cell technology to triangulate an active device’s location.
It will turn itself off just before takeoff, and then turn back on upon landing to confirm which city the bag is currently in and text the owner that information. Alternatively, users can visit the website to locate their luggage.
The product will be available in late June at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US $49.99 with an activation fee of $8.99 and an annual service fee of $12.99. Advance orders are based on a limited quantity. Go to www.Trakdot.com for more information or to place an order.
