Why it matters:
A finder with a longer range is easier to locate with your phone at a greater distance. If your item is lost, our improved range gives other users in our crowd GPS a higher probability of helping you find your lost item.

How XY did it:
XY has integrated Skyworks's RF amp, and Dialog's 14585 Bbluetooth SoC into the XY4+ to increase its range. These key components not only allow us to broadcast with more power, but also help reduces packet loss at longer range.

Why it matters:
A finder with a dead battery makes the item it is attached to nearly impossible to find. XY believes users should be allowed to replace the battery on their device and not be forced to "reTile" every year. Tile's "reTile" program means that their finders are effectively disposable or require an annual fee. Either way you look at it, Tile’s business model causes more eWaste to be produced and substantially increases the cost of ownership to their users.

How XY did it:
XY has added a much more powerful replaceable battery to XY4+ in order to increase its battery life. Combined with the extremely efficient Dialog 14585 Bluetooth chip, the XY4+ can reach up to 5 years of battery life for your finder.
