Tried numerous zips and it's $1 everywhere, with plenty of stock shown.

My local Walmart had about a dozen (bought two), despite showing out of stock online.

Reviews on the locator app are pretty bad.

"It is also crucial not to shut the program in the multitask screen. The program needs to run in the background to detect when the user has turned off their vehicle and to automatically record the parking location. If you have shut the app, or restarted your smartphone, it is necessary to open the app to resume the vehicle location tracking."

You must keep Bluetooth on all the time for this to work.
I betting this app is a battery draining tool...

edit: please read the reviews at link posted by BaruchAtah above.

So it's not something you can use to protect against car theft?

I think it works by Bluetooth, not GPS satellites...

These are already all down to less than 10 in stock at my local WM's on brickseek (which means 0 IRL), pass.

I bought one of these unfortunately. Accuracy is awful. Just use google maps parking built in the app. Much more reliable and free!

So it's a stupid Bluetooth beacon, not a GPS locator.

Let me tell you how to get a real locator for FREE:
Use your old smartphone with Tasker. You need to have a SIM card with minimum data plan set up your own server etc though.
