What is a good anti theft tracker? If my bike ever was stolen it would be nice to track it

From what I gather, the available “locate” devices like Tile only work if you’re within Bluetooth range. I was contemplating making something that used 3G and was powered up when the bike ran. Then it would be like Find my Phone

I thought about taping this inside my air box. The battery lasts 1.5 yrs

That may be the best one I've seen so far

This might be a little low tech, but I was thinking about buying blank brake reservoir caps and laser etching them. I'm thinking about designing a logo and putting my phone number on it.

It seems like in this day and age, the tech for a product like this would be simple.
But the farking business model they all want to go after is the monthly service fee.
No, fools, just give us the damn product and screw your service fees. Arghhhh

It is relatively simple. Your smart phone already has the software. The biggest issue I can see would be the power supply. But now with electric starting to gain popularity, this isn't that big of an issue. The next thing is the ability to hide it. Bikes are already stripped down so much as it is. The only conceivable place to hide it would be in the air box (or maybe integrate it into the ECU). But then if they are all in the same spot, a thief would eventually know where to look. Also the owner of the bike would need to make sure the bike battery is on a maintainer so in the event the bike were to be stolen, the system will work. As for the overall size of the device, I think the GPS transmitter and receiver will be the largest component.

Oxford make one with a 10 year battery life but it’s not very small so wouldn’t be easily hidden. I’m sure there’s a monthly/annual subscription to pay also.

Why a company would waste the time to develop a tracking device that works off of Bluetooth makes absolutely no sense.. You might was well put whatever you don't want to get stolen on a 20ft long orange dog leash...
