You can get the CarLock Tag for every car you use CarLock with or even multiple tags for each car if you choose to.and after everything is set up and the CarLock tag is in the car, you will receive a push notification with a distinctive sound, every time you move away or come close to the car.

Currently, the CarLock Tag is supported only on devices running iOS platform (iPhone). We did some extensive testing on Android devices and unfortunately, the Android operating systems on most Android phones proved to be very unreliable when detecting the CarLock Tag. We are working on the solution for this issue, but currently, the CarLock Tag is not supported on the Android platform.
