Tiny GPS tracking / stolen bike finder -

The Tile is a small device used to find your lost stuff - has some type of radio in it -
the range is only 150 feet -
But it pings its location off of other peoples tile setup so the range /area covered could be unlimited -
Tile shows its location on google maps --also saves locations of where its been -
dose not use batteries

The tile is not out yet - costs $20

I already have something like this on my wife's bike. It is a GPS unit that uses a SIM card. It has it's own phone number, if your bike goes missing you text the unit and it gives you the GPS coordinates.

The tile thing i believe is bluetooth only, no GPS
Good for finding your keys in the house but personally I wouldn't try to find a stolen bike with it

My bike was stolen a few days ago in Brooklyn, NY (2007 black DRZSM with no speedometer and new avon Distanzia's)
Would love more info about the Zabrow's wife GPS setup - duct tape it under the seat somewhere hidden? which unit? Sounds great!

It is very small and easy to hide. You can either charge it, or wire a 12v usb port with a switch to your battery and leave it plugged in.

So do you have a cell phone service fee every month or is there something else?

You have to get a prepaid cell phone style SIM card. So yes it has "minutes" but they are only used if you have to locate the stolen property.

agree. The range of tiles is too small, only suitable for people with irregular life to find important small items at home, such as wallets and keys. Is it possible to send location information with other users' tiles? If the area of my area tile is not widely used? But this is a very ambitious design and worthy of praise. I also want to know more about Zabrow's wife GPS, which is a more viable bicycle tracker.
