    Do the sticker type dots work? I think I’ve seen signs for those at the Superbikes :)

    Brilliant, thank you.
    I was going to wait until nearer Christmas, to get longer on the guarantee but that seems a good deal.

    However I’m dithering.
    I wasn’t sure whether to get this mixed pack.
    So the card shape one fits in a wallet, the one with a hole to attach to key ring, and the sticker one to stick in his phone.
    Any thoughts?
    I want it to be a surprise so I can’t ask him.

    Also it says it will only work in iOS 10 or later, I’ve no idea if he has a compatible phone or not.

    The tile can ring your phone anyway, double press the button and the alarm on the phone goes off, plus there is a find my phone option online for iphones, so I'd not worry about the sticker.

    The wallet one did interest me, but I wanted to see it before buying. I only carry a small card holder, with 5 cards in, and was worried it may be bulky.

    Still never actually needed the tile since buying them, typical!

    Just wanted to say a big thank you @tek-monkey for your help with the Tile.

    Husband is thrilled with his tile, I bought the 4 pack, one for the wallet, key ring and phones.
    He’s playing with it now as it happens.

    I would never have even heard about it if it wasn’t for you.

    The advice on that page is wrong, it does work on bluetooth but anyone that has a tile within range can tell the user where it is.

    What I find interesting is the new apple version has a feature to warn you specifically of this, albeit not for a day or so. If away from it's 'owner' for a prolonged period it alerts those nearby to it's presence, which would help in this case. What won't help is with apple every device user is a node, so rather than a tile user needing to be nearby any apple user within bluetooth range will give away your location.

    Great for finding your key, scary AF if someone wants to track you.

    I bought a set for husband for Christmas, he’s always losing things.
    One is attached to his keys, another is shaped like a credit card so it fits in his wallet and the other one is stuck on his phone.

    Oh no, not at all.
    I’ve had a year of being locked down with him. If he pops out for a few hours it’s of no concern to me what he might be up to.

    I’m just grateful to have the house to myself and enjoy a bit of peace.
