No. I have looked at the Spot tracking devices, but the service fees are a bit pricey for me. Hopefully I won't regret that decision, but I try not to ride the sketchy stuff alone.
That is actualy an ancient garmin GPS. No maps, but good for calibrating spedometers and not getting lost in the woods. just have to turn it on at the entrance, and then follow the lines back out.
Sometimes I get realy turned around when there are multiple intersecting trails. If I forget to turn it on until I'm already lost, the compas can be a nice feature too.
