"Find My Drone" just shows you the last recorded location from the flight log on your mobile device. Since that location is not always the location where the drone landed (or crashed), some people attach trackers (like the Marco Polo) so they are able to find the drone's actual location.

PLUS it NEVER hurts to have a backup just Incase something out of our control happens.

Hi Mike, Question? What equipment and how would you put in 42.723594 -87.887413? Do I need to buy a Garmin GPS unit? Thanks for any help on this. Chuck.

Assuming you have your mobile phone and cellular service, you can use the map app on your phone.
