A Pic-E using APRS-SPEED will beacon the LAST position if the GPS is turned
off but the pic-e and radio are left on. BUT, it does it a the low speed
threshold, or in my case, once every 30 minutes.
I dislike the simple tnc type trackers (D700's, KPC's, TNC2, PicoPacket,
Alinco 135) that beacon every minute, parked or moving.
My own vehicle, I try and remember to shut it all down when leaving.. two
commercial radios (Micor in particular) will suck the battery dry if I forget!
I know.. auto-power-off.. it's "on the list".
