Using the pocket finder if you put in airplane mode when in luggage how can you track it?

I am looking to buy a luggage tracker for international travel. If I put the pocketfinder in my suitcase and turn it to airplane mode, how can I track it after landing? I am confused.

    Great question. I use mine all the time when traveling. When you get on the plane you look on the app and ensure your luggage is on the plane. The blue dot of your iPhone should be lined up with your icon for your bag. Ensuring your bag is on your plane is more than half the battle. At that point put the device into airplane mode on the power tab for the estimate time of your flight. The device will wake up at the end of the time you set for airplane mode and begin locating again. In the next month a new software update will be loaded on all active devices that will automatically manage airplane mode. Based on the accelerometer and speed calculations the device will know it's on an airplane and manage itself.
