1. TRAKDOT LUGGAGE TRACKER
Why We Like It: From anywhere inside your bag, this small FAA-compliant and FCC-certified device continually monitors cell networks to determine its location. During the flight, it automatically goes to sleep. (Jealous?) When you land, it wakes and sends you (and others, if you like) a text and/or email to let you know where in the world it has been and (fingers crossed) now is. You can proactively track the device through the website or optional app, which will alert you when your luggage is within 30 feet of you. Each checked bag requires a separate device.
