I don't think it is avaliable.  

I assume it only has basic MYCALL and MYALIAS digipeating?

Then about the only thing it can do is WIDE1-1 and WIDE2-2
digipeating.  In a pinch, it can be used as follows:

Set MYCALL to WIDE1-1 and MYALIAS to WIDE2-2 and it will support
the first hop of just about everyone who is properly using the
New-N paradigm.  But it will not bring in any second hops from
out of area.

Or set MYALIAS to WIDE2-1 if many people in your area are using
the mobile path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 and you will pick up their
second hop and the second hop of any fixed stations using
WIDE2-2 paths.

Problem is if anyone else in the world is using this trick, they
your digi posits on FINDU will ping-pong.  But that is a APRS-IS
problem and not a local RF problem.  But the ham call in the
beacon.
