This flow is will report your position via SMS when a key phrase is received via SMS. It is intended as a safety system so that your position can be found in the event of an emergency.

The flow is activated when a particular key word/phrase is received. It will acquire your location and then send your location, speed, heading and altitude back to the sender via SMS. Your location is reported in a link to Google maps that can be used as a point to navigate to.

This version does not require Root privileges but does require the GPS radio to be on.

As well the flow will turn off WiFi to help save some battery power.

You can also add the shortcut to your home screen that will give you two menu choices, start and stop. Choosing start activates the flow and turns off WiFi and choosing stop does the reverse.
