Simple flow that queries a location fix ideally with an accuracy of 100 meters or better (value can be customized) then composes a SMS text message containing your location details in the message text, allowing you to choose a contact and send the message. If the GPS fails to acquire a fix, a network location will be used.

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.
