After you hide a Tile, the app prompts you on how to unhide your hidden Tile. In the Tile app, tap Settings. Scroll down to and select Manage Hidden Tiles to see the Tiles you have hidden or replaced.
One way to find a GPS tracker is to use a bug detector that can scan both the inside and outside of a vehicle. It is also possible to physically detect a GPS tracker in known locations, such as in the OBD port, under the backseat or underneath the car.
New Tile trackers, like the 2022 Tile Pro, Tile Mate, and Tile Slim now feature QR codes printed right on the back. Anyone who finds a lost Tile tracker can then simply scan the QR code using their smartphone and get the provided contact details of the owner so they can safely return the item.

If you don't notice anything that obvious, use your flashlight and mirror to check under the seats, under and behind the dash, inside and behind the glove compartment, and in the center console. Trackers can also be hidden in seat pockets, between seats, behind sun visors, and elsewhere.
Find the AirTag using a Bluetooth scanner
Because AirTag regularly emits Bluetooth signals that Apple devices can pick up, you can use a simple Bluetooth tracker for iOS or iPadOS to scan the area around you and see if an AirTag is nearby.
Tilesview is an app that uses artificial intelligence to help you identify and shop for floor tiles. With its powerful image recognition technology, the app can scan any picture of a tile and match it to similar products available for purchase.

Tile trackers have a better Bluetooth range than AirTags. However, AirTags' integration with the Find My network makes them much more powerful than any Tile device. But Apple's one-size-fits-all solution means AirTags don't work well in wallets, and clipping them to anything requires an accessory.
For the Tile Pro (2022), it means a greater tracking range (400 feet), loud alarm, and IP67 rating to keep the tag safe from splashes and rain. For reference, competing trackers like the Apple AirTag and Samsung SmartTag can be detected within 200 feet via Bluetooth -- and the Tile doubles that.
So can a GPS tracker be blocked? Yes, the GPS signals can be blocked by wet trees, aluminum foil, plastic containers, or even a tin box filled with thick materials can block GPS signals.
