Default Tiles gps locater chips

does anyone out there have the Tiles gps locater chips attached to their phones, keys or anything else. I was considering getting a few and inserting them inside the poles of disc golf baskets. This way if they ever get stolen we might have a better way to track the pole. If it disappears you can try and supposedly track its location. the outdoor one is double in distance and sound. if we could track the basket you could make it ring within 200 feet. Hard to explain to police if the basket they were trying to say was theirs all of a sudden began beeping. What does everyone think of this idea?

If it rings while the thief is using it, wouldn't they just disassemble it to remove the tile?

Tiles are not gps, they are bluetooth -- and they only last a year before needing replacement. Probably not the best application for Tiles.

agreed. A min gps tracker would work but I have no clue what something like this costs and how well they work. A bit creepy to think about mini gps trackers affordable for the common man.
