Hi there and welcome

No sorry it is not. It does not provide within the firmware any method to send its location to a central source such as most smartphones do. The reason is apart from when sharing, it has no connection, and therefore no means to communicate with the internet which is needed to do this. Plus if it did, the only thing it could communicate would be it's serial number which in this situation would not help.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
