Does Android have an equivalent to Find my iPhone?

Is there a built in way to find my phone if it's lost like on an iPhone? Is there a web site I can log into to find its location?

Thanks.

Check out Cerberus. It's a paid app but it's by far the most feature packed.

I use SeekDroid, although I have heard good things about Cerberus.

I use Family Tracker... I like Cerberus for its other features, but when my 10 year old son lost his phone, Cerberus didn't provide me with any useful up-to-date information.

Family Tracker has on the regular provided the best, up-to-date tracking information.

Any reason this wouldn't work with an At&T Nexus 7? I'm thinking about getting it for security, but wasn't sure if it was only for phones.

I use Lookout

It's a one-stop shop for malware prevention and lost phone location.
