Sure, but you don;t have to spend that $65 if you have a smart phone or want one. Everyone will have one sooner or later. if you already have one you have already saved $65!

I have no problem going the day 12 hours on batteries with GPS tracking. I can't imagine your shooting for 12+ hours typically anyhow.

You don't buy the phone just to use as a geotracker btw, you buy it as a smart phone with geotracking capabilities.

A phone may indeed be an alternative to a dedicated GPS tracker but (1) most phone's batteries won't last for a 12+ hour shooting day and (2) I can buy a GPS logger for $65 with no monthly fees. I don't know of any phones with the capability for that price.
