The classic example of automatic sending of sms with tasker, a little more refined and on steroids offered by Locus  ;D

You can transmit all the data available in locus according to the variables exposed thanks to Falco's Locus Tasker plugin, mine is just an idea on which everyone can then adapt their needs

Here is the link to taskernet:

The requester sends a text message with a keyword
The message is controlled by tasker on the recipient's phone, if the requester is authorized and the magic word is correct then it sends the location.

The location is validated based on accuracy, within one minute the location is provided:
accuracy of 25 tested for 30 sec
accuracy of 50 tested for 20 sec
accuracy of 100 tested for 10 sec
total 1 min, otherwise a negative message is sent and only the battery status data is provided.

If locus is recording a track more information is provided.

In addition to tasker to get the additional functions you need: Locus Map https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=menion.android.locus&pli=1 Locus Map Tasker Plugin https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=falcosc.locus.addon.tasker Set up: in the profile LWAY edit the event that triggers the action, set in SENDER who is authorized to ask the location (use the magnifier). You can set multiple users. than edit in the content the magic word, it's not case sensitive, use * before and after. LWAY Locus Where Are You HIAM Here I Am
