Tile gps for cases and bags

Bought one and am planning on sticking it to each bag or even equipment because sometimes we have to move quickly. It arrived today and will post some photos and opinion up. Anyone consider getting one or using one?

Hadn't seen it before. Looks kind of interesting.

Wondering what the purpose of it is, though. Range too limited for anti-theft, right?

So is it more for absent-mindedness? "I don't know where my camera is. Oh, there it is -- under that church pew"?

While the range is small it should be able to cover some area at a venue. It's for when you have a case or item and don't have a place to put it. For us we always carry our cameras but we decided to pack a case for video, and a case for audio. This has sped up time considerably.

No I didn't return it because of those things. I returned it because it was stated as new but there are marks that show that it is not.

I saw these advertised loads on Facebook about 6 months ago - great idea - and it tracks your package from other mobile phones which carry their application - sounds like an app that would destroy your battery life though!

Ultimately, it's a nice idea... and for picking up the signal on your own phone, I think it's a decent idea... I've left it somewhere, where? Ahhh.... but I don't see it as revolutionary until the idea really takes off and is a viable solution to theft - especially if you hide it somewhere in your bag and nobody knows it's there! The idea of many people using the app and being able to send a message to your device is superb though!

Shame that it's not new... but it's a Kickstarter business as far as I'm aware?
