Air Tags, who is using them?

I know I read on here some where about folks using AirTags to keep track of their trailer. But cannot find it.

I donít want to re-hash the whole AirTag how it works and if it is the best option or not.

I would like to here from folks who are now using AirTags or have used them to keep track of their trailer and if you are satisfied with the experience.

Thanks

I just got one for my trailer. Have been using one to track my elderly mother’s car for about a year.
Trying to decide where to put it in the trailer.

My sister borrowed Mom’s car a few weeks ago and after a few days she did get a message saying an air tag was traveling with her.

An update- they work better for personal items now as the newer IOS can find them more accurately. I’m going to put one on my key ring if that turns out to be true.

I have Tile on our key chains. It works ok.

But the Air tag has a billion devices to lock on out there.

Seems like everyone has a smart phone that would log AirTag. Even if the bad guys parked in a shop, I bet there would be enough folks around to log it’s location.

One question is Can you link a tag to more than one device? Like both husband and wife phones.


Well after some research. No

On my keys, on my eyeglasses, and even on our camping cat. He fell out of the truck one time when the door was opened to take him into the camper when hubby did not see him wedged between the door and carrier. Luckily, he just ran under the camper and not into the neighboring wood. Funny thing is, since adding them, neither my keys nor my eyeglasses have needed the airtag. I have not had to go through extended searches for these items.

My multiple Apple devices look for these tags.
