Best answer: The Tile Pro has a range of 300 ft or 90 m. When you open the Tile app, you'll need to be within that range in order to ping your lost item, though its last known location will show up on the app's map.

Tile: Tile Pro ($35)

The Tile Pro has a range of about 300 feet

While using the Tile app, you'll be able to actively locate your lost item within 300 ft. That's certainly enough to cover most homes, but it's also an excellent range if you're worried about leaving something behind when you're out of doors. Tile Pro is a little more rugged than its Mate and Slim counterparts and is a great choice if you want to keep track of items that you take with your on outdoor excursions.

This also works in the other direction. If you have your Tile-attached object, but can't find your phone, just double-click the Tile button to play a sound on your iPhone, making it much easier to find.

If you leave something with a Tile attached to it behind at another location, you can use the Tile to look up its last known location.

Benefits of networking

One of the major benefits of owning a Tile is the network of other Tile owners. The large community of users that own one of the tags can become an asset if you ever accidentally leave something behind that has a Tile attached to it.

While the normal range of your Tile Pro is 300 ft, that doesn't just mean 300 ft from you. It's 300 ft from anyone who uses the Tile app. While your item won't show up on their phone, if a person using the Tile app is in range of your Tile-equipped item, the app on their phone will update the location of your item so that the next time you look for it on your own phone, you'll have the most up-to-date information on its whereabouts.

You can also share your Tile Pro with others so that multiple people can actively look for your item if it's lost. That way, if someone you're sharing with finds your item, they'll be able to grab it and return it to you themselves. If you've signed up for Tile's new Premium service, you can actually do this with an infinite number of people
