This flow uses the GPS device then queries the altitude of your location from a Google server and displays the result in a dialog, ideally once the location accuracy is better than 100 meters (can be customized in the flow). This provides a very accurate elevation but requires a network connection and the GPS needs to be enabled. Flow can be used with a widget if desired. Custom icons for automate widgets are available at www.iconspedia.com assuming you are using an automate flow beginnings shortcut style widget and have a custom android launcher like GoLauncher or an app like Icon Changer from the app store that allows you to change shortcut icons.

Note: Make sure the "Google Play Services" location api option in the automate settings is disabled otherwise automate will not be able to obtain an accurate location fix.
