Does this work to find luggage that has been lost by an airline? If the luggage is indoors in a baggage area, will the GPS still work?

Use with baggage or luggage

    Yes. I use a PocketFinder on all my trips. In most airports it can connect with the GPS satellites from in the terminals and onto the plane. It's great boarding my plane, sitting down, looking at my iPhone and seeing that my checked bag is on the plane! Remember to put the device into airplane mode before taking off or you will loose battery power with the device searching for a network connection during the entire flight just like your cell phone will.

    Sometimes it will locate on the way to the baggage area but not in the baggage area due to being underground or under a structure so that it can't connect with enough satellites for an accurate connection. Hope this makes sense.

    If you are traveling international you will need the international roaming plan which is $29.95 US a month. Call customer service to have it added. Safe travels!
