This flow uses the GPS device then displays the approximate altitude of your location from the GPS in a dialog, ideally once the location accuracy is better than 100 meters (can be customized in the flow). For a more accurate altitude reading, use the "Altitude via Web" flow (requires a network connection). Root required to automatically enable and disable location as needed but the flow is made so it will work without root. 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.
