man confused about buying a gps tracker or apple air tag

Apple introduced their Air tags as a great tool to find lost things in your daily life. There is a growing misconception that air tags can be used as a GPS tracking device.

You will definitely set them to track the right stuff that once you understand how the Air tags work. Unlike tracker devices AirTag comes with advertisements like no monthly recharge or network problem to get the attention of the people.

AirTag depends on the Bluetooth connectivity of the tracker and the iPhone. Using the iPhone, you can track the AirTag in the “Find my Device” Section. The connectivity of the AirTag with the phone is also simple. However, like any other Apple products, AirTags are only compatible with Apple devices. AirTags also claims to track things beyond the reach of the Bluetooth connectivity by using the other Apple products nearby.

It works universally and in a much faster way than AirTags. Of course, AirTags are cheaper than GPS trackers, but they cannot be deployed as a tracking device for valuable assets like cars.

Evidently, AirTags are not supported in live tracking when the object is in motion. It gives you the last location where it is able to find the object with the help of nearby Apple devices. you will certainly lose contact with your car if there are no  Apple devices nearby to the AirTags. Apple AirTags are great for indoor areas. It will be at your service when you lose something in the house. AirTags can never replace a GPS tracking device for your cars. However, they are not designed for such a tracking experience. The GPS tracking for cars is responsible for tracking the car throughout the world in real-time. For such a great level of tracking, you need to have powerful GPS tracking units.
