Google Maps Via Tasker / SMS

This is in case I get lost and don't show up when / where I'm supposed to. certain family / friends have the code word that can be texted to me. Tasker (Google Play store) picks up that code word, then runs a very short program to send out my current location back to the phone number that just texted me. Takes all of like 20-30 seconds (depending on location and signal strength).

Note I am always using the latest version of Android and Tasker available for my phone
