Saves your current location or a geocoded address to a GPX file named locations.gpx on your external sd card (uses your internal storage if an external card is not present) and allows you to view previously saved waypoints in that file in Google maps. Waypoints can also be deleted or the names can be edited if desired. There is also an option to get directions to a saved waypoint and an option to share your saved waypoints via a file to another app like Gmail, a GPX viewer, a file manager for exporting, etc. If the GPS fails to acquire a fix, a network location will be used. Intended to be used as a widget. Root required to automatically enable and disable location as needed but the flow can be easily modified to work without root. By default the waypoints will be sorted by name but if you would prefer them to be sorted by date, edit the DateSort variable, block 242, and change it from 0 to 1.
Flow is intended to be used as a widget. 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.
