    I think some transistor-powered nerd might be tracking my movements by
    way of the emergency cell phone I carry.

    If I wrap my cell phone in Aluminum foil will this shield the signal
    from detection?

    Sort of a "tin-foil-hat-in-the-pocket" question? No. This is a serious
    inquiry. :-(

    How about turning it off?

    Your GPS signal may be on by default, turn it off!

    Turning it off should suffice. If not, pull the battery.
