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. 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.
