    30 Ways to Use Your Smartphone When You Travel

    As a luggage tracker: Devices like the LugLoc can help you locate your luggage with the tap of a smartphone, though they require an initial investment.
    As a map: As long as location services are enabled, you can see where you are on Google Maps even without a Wi-Fi connection or data (though not directions to where you want to go). For a more detailed map, download the offline version ahead of time from Google Maps, or use other apps like Maps.me (which has a search function) and Spyglass (specializing in outdoor navigation). I also make use of old-fashioned screenshots when I know I can’t count on a continuous Wi-Fi connection (great for showing to cab drivers when there’s a language barrier).

    LugLoc luggage locator eases bag separation anxiety

    ‘Smart luggage’ equipped with GPS and other technologies are on the horizon, but you don’t have to wait to track your bags, thanks to LugLoc, a $70 gadget that slips into a suitcase and shows its location on map in an iOS or Android app. I recently used LugLoc on a trip from San Francisco to New York, and back. The app and device worked as advertised, so I knew on both legs of the trip that my checked bag had made it to the right destinations. Both flights were non-stop, however, and my separation anxiety was less than it would have been had I needed to change planes.
