Reunite with your lost luggage faster by tracking it

Many of us are well acquainted with the reality of losing luggage on a flight. No matter what precautions you take, there’s not a lot you can do once you’ve arrived in Toronto, but your suitcase is still on vacation in Cancun.

will this device sell like hot cakes?........so let's say someone steals your luggage and the device, then tosses the device in the garbage, and keeps your luggage...what happens in that case?

This device isn't for when your luggage is stolen, but for when it's misrouted, which is common.

This is a great idea. I like it.

Sounds interesting, provided its stolen along with the rest of the cases contents you can drive up right to the home of the baggage handler that nicked it.

What kind of fidelity on location. Unless it can spot it down to a specific house for example its useless and expensive. In our area alone I tried a rogers location program and it was really decent it narrowed down the cell phone to 10sq kilometres and we are not in the boonies.

That's about as accurate as the Rogers bandwidth meter......

Well, it would have saved me part of the headache when my luggage got waylaid on the way to NYC, but I can't see as the TSA would be overly happy to see a device that transmits signals in peoples luggage, even if it its only supposed to transmit when the bag is on the ground.

I went to Vancouver once. My luggage went to London, UK. Took 4 days to get it back.

Lufthansa lost my luggage once... took them a month to get it back to me. Then 4 months later their head office called me to fulfill my monetary claim to compensate me for my lost luggage.

Despite being pissed off, I was honest with them and told them that they had actually returned my luggage.

Wow, I gotta get at least one of two of these! Hopefully they have some dealers in Ontario soon!

i hear you, but where is the difference if the luggage ends up in montreal or someone's house in toronto?
