    Don't bother!

    I would give it zero stars if I could.

    I bought a TrackR Bravo for my girlfriend who is prone to misplacing her keys and phone. I attached it to her keys and loaded the app on my phone first to test the device's capabilities. The first thing I noticed is how long it took for the Bluetooth to connect, even when I was in the same room. The second negative was that although TrackR said it had a range of almost 100 feet, it was more like 30. Then we tried the crowd locator feature. I live in Baltimore, where there should be potentially thousands of these things, and I figured at least one would give me a notification. She works downtown with maybe half a million other people within a few miles, so the chances of someone else with one were pretty good. Nothing, not one alert.

    So I contacted TrackR and after telling me there were devices that "may" have faulty batteries, they sent me a TrackR Pixel. When I received it, I removed the original device and replaced it with the Pixel, with the same result.

    I even took the TrackR Bravo (the original device I bought) and configured it in the app and placed it on her desk at work, and STILL didn't get a crowd notification even though the two devices were virtually right next to each other.

    The bottom line is, the product does NOT function as intended. If you truly need a device to track your phone/pet/luggage, I suggest spending the money and get a REAL GPS tracker. If you just want to find your lost keys in your house, this would work fine, although you can buy a device on Amazon for half the cost and three times the range.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
