Track Your Luggage with a Trakdot

Filed under: Industry News,Tech PR |


Hmm… something tells me that this won’t help the airlines to stop losing your luggage..

Today Trakdot will begin shipping Trakdot Luggage devices to customers worldwide. Created by GlobaTrac, LLC , an innovator in low cost tracking solutions, Trakdot Luggage can be placed in any checked bag  and will alert the user by reporting city and airport location in real time to any cellular telephone via text or e-mail.

Launched at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, the F.C.C. (Federal Communications Commission)-certified, palm-sized Trakdot Luggage device was an immediate sensation.  Trakdot promises to help travelers and airlines quickly resolve the problem of misdirected luggage, particularly in situations where late check-ins may cause luggage to miss a flight.

“Today, thousands of pre-ordered Trakdot units will ship to customers globally” said CEO of Trakdot, Harry Steck, “We’re confident that this will forever change the way we travel and we’re looking forward to hearing feedback from the first users of Trakdot technology.”

After travelling in "airplane mode" in flight, upon landing, the luggage locator system automatically transmits city-specific information on the whereabouts of checked baggage.   Even if the Trakdot-protected bag does not reach the desired destination, passengers will still have the assurance of knowing the location of the luggage. 

Once the device is registered on the Trakdot website and placed inside a checked bag, it will deliver location information directly to the user’s mobile phone or SMS device via text or email. 



Trakdot users who have Android (Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, Note II, and other Samsung devices with Bluetooth 4.0 and Android 4.2.2) or iOS devices also have the option of using the Trakdot mobile application. Using Bluetooth 4.0, the mobile app identifies the proximity of luggage when it approaches on the baggage carousel. The app will list all of the traveler’s Trakdot-registered devices, allowing him or her to check the distance of each bag up to 160 feet, making it easier than ever for travelers to locate their bags.

Trakdot’s mobile application also allows you to register new devices and access the location history of your luggage. Alternatively, travelers can track their luggage’s location history on    

The retail package includes the Trakdot Luggage device, luggage tag, and batteries.  It works globally with any cell phone or SMS enabled device for a low annual price.  Each device can be linked to multiple phones, and each phone can track multiple devices, making it convenient for traveling families to keep track of several bags.


The product is available for purchase today for $49.99 MSRP, with an activation fee of $8.99 and an annual service fee of $12.99.  Visit for more information or to place an order.
