Trakdot Luggage Tracker: Never Lose Your Bag Again

Do you ever worry about losing your luggage when you travel? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to know exactly where you bag was all the time? Well thanks to a nifty new gadget, you can spot the location of your checked bag from your smartphone.

Announced just in time for CES 2013 by GlobaTrac, the Trakdot is a small tracking device you slip into your luggage, and can view city-specific information on the location of your bag using your Android or iOS smartphone, via SMS or E-mail. You can also just surf to Trakdot.com to view the location of your bag. There’s also an app which can alert you as your bag gets close to the carousel at the airport – a common source of frustration for travelers.

The Trakdot will be available this March for $49.95(USD), although there will be a $8.99 activation fee and a $12.99 annual fee per device for using the tracking service. Unfortunately, that price is per device – hopefully they’ll offer a discounted rate for tracking multiple TrakDots at some point.
