this maybe a cheap alternative, especially when you own a few classics. $150 for 4 airtags, battery lasts for 12months.
Im going to try the Apple Airtags, if they dont work, i'll still use them with the travel i do for work.
I’m guessing you didn’t read the article or watch the video? The Apple airtag was pretty useless for accuracy!
also found this article doing a quick search, https://au.pcmag.com...ou-need-to-know, it says this
”A prime concern about AirTags and other tiny tracking devices is that they will be used to track people, not devices. AirTags are small so they won't weigh down keyrings or backpacks, but it also means they are easy to slip into someone's bag. In theory, a stalker or abusive partner could then keep tabs on a person's whereabouts from their own Apple device.
To address this, the Find My app will alert you on your Apple device if it detects a AirTag not attached to your Apple ID—and separated from its owner—traveling with you. You're then given the option to disable that AirTag, or to play a sound so you can locate it. Your device will need to be running iOS 14.5+, though.”.
I would be certain the Samsung device has a similar option. So what this means is if you have the airtag in the car and the thief has a compatible iPhone they will know the tag is in the car and can disable it OR do a search for it and destroy it or just throw it away. Makes the device useless pretty fast.
