    In a very populated area with many TrackR devices it can work. But it depends on 'crowd GPS data sharing'. The TrackR itself transmits over bluetooth which has only a short reach.
    It is more useful for finding stuff around the house.

    I rather use a stand alone GPS device with a prepaid sim. Bought 2 of these:
    Motorcycle Motor TK102 Mini GPS/GSM/GPRS Personal Pet Spy Real Time Tracker

    Cost me about 25$ each including the added customs taxes.
