    I've got some expensive camera and computer gear and two nice guitars, and would like to place some kind of small GPS trackers in them so that if they ever get stolen I have a better chance of recovering them.

    Does anyone own any devices like this, and have any recommendations to make?

    I do have insurance, but if my gear was stolen I'd rather have a fighting chance of getting it back.

    Thanks!

    I use Title. While not GPS, they are fairly affordable and worth off Bluetooth. I have only in my backpack and laptop bag and can always locate my bag wherever I am. Luckily, I have not needed to use it to track it down, but I am confident I would be able to.

    but if your not in blutooth range, its useless.
    Like if I leave one at the mall and go home, unless someone else is using the tile app and walks past it, it goes undetected.

    I was thinking of getting these for my kids, as we were considering them walking to school, but the network is nonexistent.
