No. The Nuvi can only receive signals from satellites and calculate its own position. You cannot send anything to it and it can't send anything to you. Time to child-proof the house (I have a 3 year old grandaughter myself)  ;)

Thanks so much. Looks like I'm in trouble! But if it can receive info(I'm a geriatric at this) can it not also be activated by a signal?

No, it cannot be "activated". The satellites basically just go "beep-beep-beep" while the gps measures the time it takes and calculates position. Sorry...

You will find it in the most safe place... in the child's mind.    Lost a set of car keys years ago. 
10 years later ... we moved.  found keys in cigar box used to keep valuables.   Go figure...
