Hi Marsell.
The TrackMyTools service only seems to be available in Germany at the moment. I don't know whether, once you've signed up for the service, there will be a language option other than German or, whether the German service would even be active in the UK. As a paid for/subscription service, I'm not inclined to find out right now either.
I was on Amazon.co.uk recently and noticed they are selling the Bosch GCC30 Track Tag bluetooth modules in the UK (157GBP for 10). These attach to tools (on the cable) and/or boxes and give off a bluetooth signal for tracking. Seems silly to be selling these when Bosch aren't offering the TrackMyTools service yet!?
Whats the hold up with the tracking service in the UK Bob?

Hi Guys,

I have heard on the grape-vine that the App team are working to integrate the TrackMyTools functionality into the Bosch ToolBox App. It's all very hush hush at the minute but i will keep you updated as and when I hear anything.

Hi Andy.
You're right. Range is about 30yds. It's more for detecting location on site than theft deterent I think, useful though the latter would be.
It would still be useful for those working on site. The amount of times I had tools go walkabout, forgot where I left something or confused (though simply marking the tools negates that).
I only work out of the workshop these days so it wouldn't be much use to me now but, a few years ago, I would have considered it I think.
