With an Android platform I have used "Tile Trackers" for 2 years or so and have been quite pleased. Never used them for shipping a gun but I get it. It is comforting to know that when you are headed to baggage collections that your gun is nearby and made the trip, same for departure, comforting to know it or they got loaded.

I'm traveling to AK to hunt sea ducks next week and I put one in my gun case so I can track it if needed. We will see how it works.

I may be miss reading it, but I think the devices used to hold the air tags are around $7, but the actual device is around $27 ?

I just ordered a set for the purpose of tagging my dogs and shipping guns. The problem with the dog tags are that the tags have to be close to an i-device to be detected. If the dog got lost in an urban or sub-urban area it could probably be detected. Thats my current concern. If its out in the field, miles from nowhere, it would not be detected until you were close with your i-device.

Recently friend shot in the King's Cup at Somontes in Madrid, Spain, he has utilized the air-tags for years. His flight got cancelled out of Paris and he became separated from his firearms. Because of the air-tags he was able constantly track the guns and united with them 24 hours later in Dallas. He travels to Europe at least twice a year for Pigeon and Helice shots so these are expensive custom built firearms and swears by the air-tags.

Maybe good for tracking your teenager(s)? Or a girlfriend of wife? A guy in our neighborhood traced his new Caddy to a neighbor's garage using On-star.

Two marriages ended by On-star.

Good info but, could you tell us how far away the tags can be detected by a device and, is this true of Apple's tags as well as the Android based Tile Trackers?
