I just got this for christmas, and as far as I can tell: No. It is pretty much strictly for tracking exercise, particularly running, but it works for other applications as well.
I can point you in the direction of a coordinate you have loaded onto the device, and run you on a course you have loaded onto it too, by leading you on a series of points.
Also you can track just about anything gps wise and look at it on a map later, if that sort of thing suits you. I believe you can find cheaper gps units if all you want is coordinates.
