    Can I use an Air Tag in my car, under a seat or in the trunk, so that if it is stolen, I can notify the police as to it’s location?

    Gary — Excellent! Was hoping you would make the AirTag “Chirp” so that I could hear that sound (or did I miss that part?). Just ordered one here in Europe (price is much higher here!!) Hope to test this in June when it is delivered. Great video and you really covered the full range of what the AirTag can do. Much appreciated!

    Even understanding the LIMITATIONS, I think that these would be worth every penny if they could help get Rover or Fluffy back home. I have a quad pack on order. Also plan to affix one under the saddle of both my bikes. I’ve been waiting years for these!

    Thanks Gary!!!

    Thanks Gary, that was very informative. Now I will purchase the AirTags for my absent minded son and niece.

    Arnie: The problem with using them to locate your car is that it will only give you a location if an iPhone is close to it. Remember, it doesn’t have GPS and it doesn’t have a way to report its location by itself. So it isn’t reliable for this sort of thing. Plus, it will start altering the thieves after a time with a sound. If you really want a good anti-theft device, this isn’t a substitute for a GPS locator.

    Gary. More than once I’ve parked my car at large parking lot – think sports stadium. Afterwards trouble remembering where. Wonder, if this might be a solution with my iPhone 12 synced
