How does the Tile Slim work?
Simply attach the Tile to your item, which can be anything from your keys or bag to your wallet or purse, or even your TV remote. You can even use it to find your phone. If you lose your Tiled item, simply open the Tile app, and press the find button. This will then send a message to your Tile and, if it is in range, the tiny speakers will let out a loud melody that’s easy to hear – even under piles of laundry or from a few rooms away. If the Tile is not in range, you can open the map feature within the app and see where it was last spotted, or you can join forces with the Tile community and they can help to find it for you. All you need to do is select the ‘notify when found’ option and as soon as someone else running the app comes into range of your Tile, you will receive a notification with the exact location. The Tile is water-resistant, so although scuba diving is out of the question, the IPX5 rating means that thunderstorms and rainy days won’t be a problem.

How can I use the Tile Slim to find my phone?
The Tile works both ways – so if you can find your Tiled item, you can use this to find your phone. Simply double press the button on your Tile and your phone will ring even if it’s on silent, as long as it’s within 30 metres. If your phone is not within 30 metres, finding it is still easy. Just log into the Tile website and from there you can see your phone’s last known location on a map, make the phone ring, or send a lock screen message to the device so that anyone who finds it can see it.

How is the Tile Slim maintenance free?
The Tile has been designed with a zero upkeep philosophy. It has been designed to run for a full year without any maintenance and requires no battery replacement or charging. When it is time for a new Tile, you will receive a notification about the reTile program. This allows you to replace your Tile in a straightforward, easy way for a fraction of the cost and also means that you are constantly up-to-date with the latest technology.

What is the reTile program?
The reTile program allows you to upgrade your Tiles with maximum reliability and minimal hassle. When it’s time for a new Tile, you can upgrade to the latest technology and recycle your old Tiles in an environmentally friendly way. After you have ordered, you will receive your new Tiles along with a prepaid return envelope. Simply swap out your old Tiles for the new ones and update them in the app, put your old Tiles in the envelope and return them. Tile will then recycle the old ones in an eco-friendly way.

What about my privacy?
Tiles are only visible to the registered user, and they do not contain any personal identifiable information on them. If you mark something as lost, another user’s phone can find a Tile, however this information is relayed through the servers anonymously. The user cannot see the information that they have sent regarding your lost Tile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Answer to a prayer Can't review this as it was bought as a present! Looks good though - lets hope it works as well.

What is the cost of annual replacement and why do you hide this key piece of information

Asked by: fahmeed
We have a clickable link in the description for the item so I not believe that this information is hidden. I have placed the entire paragraph we have about it below, I have also placed the link below this. The reason we do not quote a price for this service is that the service is not provided by Maplin and therefore is subject to change at any time from a 3rd party, providing you with a link ensures you always get the most up to date information directly from the company offering the service.
