Apple Air Tag

Recommended Posts

Do you have any experience with it?  I'm kind of thinking about buying one to keep in my pocket while riding, boating, fishing, etc.  If I understand it correctly the wife could know where I am when out and about.  Cheap at $29 versus Garmin and Spot.

Seems like a cheaper alternative than buying "Spot".   However, I would expect Spot to locate you out  in the boonies (i.e. tracking via Satellite), where as an Apple AIRTAG would check out along with you, about the time you lost your line-of-sight cell signal.  Maybe I don't understand the technology, though.

Good point. We both have IPhones but the find my phone doesn’t always work. It’s not because we are out of cell range, something like half the time it just doesn’t work

 

Wouldn't airtags have the same issues,....apple product and all

Roug.. that’s what I’m afraid of and partially why I started the thread. Probably easier to take back an air tag for a refund than taking back a phone with one app that is flaky

I carry a PLB with me but that is only good if you can get to it and activate it.
