Monimoto has endorsed a study on the challenges of anti-theft devices in the motorcycle industry – and based on the results, Apple’s AirTags are a little too-well connected to be of any safe use to riders.
“Apple is wise to take steps to stop the use of AirTags as a way to stalk someone,” says Andrius ‘Bruno’ Rimkunas, a motorcycle security expert and co-founder of Monimoto.
“However, these procedures, and the AirTag’s reliance on other Apple devices for location and communications, are exactly why motorcycle owners should select a different device…one that provides immediate alerts and ensures owners never need to worry about losing the motorcycle they love.”
Naturally, with Monimoto having a plethora of units to choose from, the brand recommends their own devices over something like an AirTag that often doesn’t show the movement of a stolen item until an entire hour after the theft has occurred.
“AirTags are wonderful for finding lost keys or a backpack. But our advice to riders is that a locked motorcycle and a high-quality GPS tracker, like our Monimoto 7, is the best way to protect the investment they’ve made in their motorcycle.” continues Rimkunas.
